The Samuel Tyndale Wilson Center for Campus Ministry (CCM) provides the home base for the Spiritual Life and Community Engagement programs at the college. Stop by the CCM and you’ll be likely to find a listening ear, a challenging program, or a group of students planning a service trip. Bonner, Bradford, Church and College, Isaac Anderson, and Chapel Scholar programs are all based in the CCM. We also serve as host to many student religious groups, and many students find our space to be an inviting and quiet place to study. You can find more information about scholarship programs, student religious groups, and community engagement on our website; also feel free to stop by any time!
The Center for Campus Ministry holds a chapel service each week from 1:15-1:50 on Tuesdays. No classes are held during this protected time, so everyone is invited to gather together in a time of worship. A student-led worship committee plans services.
We do not hold services on campus on Sunday mornings; instead we encourage students to attend church at a local congregation. For a list of local congregations, please see our website. We invite you to contact us if you need transportation or want more guidance in connecting with a local worshiping community.
2019-20 Chapel Program
"The Road ahead"
The CCM's chapel theme for year 2019-20 will help the campus look forward from the bicentennial year and into the future, by focusing on "The Road Ahead." Last year, "The Roads We've Traveled" helped remind us where we have been--whether in our personal faith journeys, in the stories of faith traditions, or in the history of Maryville College. Especially in this year of transition, stories of anticipation--are we going toward a land of giants, or one flowing with milk and honey, which in the Bible turned out to be the same exact place? How have we navigated uncertain transitions in our own lives, and what have we learned from them? What navigational tools are important as we make our journeys, individually and together? What stories inspire us, whether from the college's history, from our various faith traditions, or from literature or TV? What do you see on the horizon?
Chapel will take place at 1:15 p.m. in the Center for Campus Ministry unless otherwise noted. Chapel will conclude in time for students and professors to attend 2:00 classes.
