Starting Sunday, March 28, the capacity limit for Upper Room and Waynesburg University Chapel will be increased to 100 attendees. Students, faculty and staff no longer need to RSVP via MyConnect to attend the student-led worship service, Upper Room, or Waynesburg’s Tuesday Chapel service.
These new guidelines now allow roommates, referred to as pods, to sit together during the events; however, individual attendees are still required to follow social distancing guidelines.
University Chaplain Josh Sumpter said, “Chapel is an awesome opportunity for students and faculty to slow down and pause in the midst of busyness we call college life.”
Waynesburg Chapel gives students and faculty the opportunity to worship and grow in faith together.
“It’s refreshing to take time out of the week to be with the community, students and staff members to worship the Lord, hear a good encouraging message and receive spiritual nourishment,” Qwinlyn Kelly, senior music ministry and worship team leader, said.
Kelly said that just like food, people need spiritual food which students and faculty can get at Waynesburg University Chapel services.
Services are about 45 minutes long with two songs of worship, prayer and the message.
There are four remaining Waynesburg University Chapel services: March 30, April. 6, April 13, and April 20. Each of those dates include a Waynesburg staff guest speaker.
Tuesday, March 30, at 11 a.m. Sumpter will be leading the message, his topic is dedicated to Holy Week, since Easter is just around the corner.
Due to students and faculty vacating campus for Easter weekend, there will be no Upper Room Sunday, April 4.
