The chapels are open the public, and take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings from 10:30 – 11:20 a.m. in the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center, 610 Wooster Road, Winona Lake.
“Chapel is a place to gather and experience Christ, as well as look beyond ourselves to the greater, global story that God is writing,” said Brent Mencarelli, dean of chapel and community life at Grace. “I want people to hear from leading voices – authors, musicians, activists – on global concerns like poverty, human trafficking and racial reconciliation. This lets students and community members engage their passions and dreams with relevant issues.”
