The Palmer Seminary community meets weekly for worship as the seminary, and every Wednesday morning at 10am with the rest of the Eastern University community for Chapel. On Tuesday and Thursday evenings, beginning at 6:00pm and ending by 6:50pm, we meet for Seminary Chapel in McInnis Room 251.

On Tuesday evenings, Rev. Johnson Dodla and our Methodist friends offer worship in the Wesleyan style (often with Holy Communion), and on Thursday evenings, Dr. Debbie Watson lines up speakers from the Student, Faculty, Staff, Alumni and neighbor pool of Palmer!

If you would like to help with accompaniment, provide special music, or bring a meditation, please let Dr. Watson and Rev. Dodla know! The heart of life – now and in eternity – is to worship the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind!
