Worship is a time set apart for the seminary community to turn our whole attention toward God as we continue to seek to cultivate a love for scholarship, piety, and justice.

At Memphis Theological Seminary we worship in the classroom, the hallways, and in the sacred space of our chapel.

Christian worship in an ecumenical setting is especially about love. We are called to be open, patient and generous as we strive to find ways of worshiping together, share the best of our own traditions, learn about other people’s traditions, and discern the patterns that we hold and create in common.


Chapel is on Tuesdays at 11:30 am (Central) while Fall and Spring semester classes are in session.

During the pandemic, chapel services have taken place virtually. Students, faculty, and staff are emailed the link each week to join on Zoom.

Chapel services are also streamed live on the seminary’s Facebook page.

Recordings of chapel services are available below.
