Religious Activities

As well as weekly worship services, the chaplaincy program facilitates various activities on and off campus.

Agape Christian Fellowship

Agape Christian Fellowship seeks to offer opportunities for Christian fellowship through Bible study, fellowship, worship services and other events. All students who identify as Christian are welcome to Agape events. We realize that there is a great diversity of belief within the Christian community and we seek to support dialogue between people of different viewpoints, sharing their experiences.   Watch for fliers and campus emails regarding Agape events.

Bible Study

A chaplain-led Bible study will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. each Monday in the Prayer Chapel. No prior knowledge of the Bible is assumed. This will be designed to be a safe space for questions and for sharing. Bibles will be provided or bring your own. In the fall semester, we will be studying Women of the Bible.

Fiber Fellowship

Crazy for stitching, knitting, hooking, crocheting or sewing? Wondering what all the fiber-related fuss is about? Join us on Tuesday evenings in the Women’s Studies Lounge at Sarah’s Coffeehouse for conversation, tea, coffee, a homemade brownie or two and a chance to craft with friends. The Fiber Fellowship group talks about everything from crafting and politics to the paper that’s due next week in English class. All students – beginners and expert crafters alike – are welcome. Bring a current project or start something new! Fiber Fellowship will meet from 8 to 10 p.m. every Tuesday.

Habitat for Humanity

Wilson ’s Habitat for Humanity Club is a national college chapter. This student group works throughout the year to plan the Alternative Spring Break trip, as well as working with the local Chambersburg Habitat for Humanity Chapter on local builds at least one weekend per semester.

Meditation

Are you interested in exploring contemplative practice?  Meditation is a part of many religious traditions.  Through weekly practice individuals work to achieve a greater sense of self-awareness.  Professor Robert Dickson hosts an inclusive meditation group on campus at Wilson.  The meditation group gathers in the Wilson College Prayer Chapel on the ground floor of Lenfest Commons.

Prayer Chapel

A prayer chapel is located on the ground floor of Lenfest.  This chapel is open at all times that school is in session.  The comfortably appointed room includes a small devotional library, sacred texts, prayer rugs, music books and floor pillows, a selection of interfaith icons. Candles are ordinarily not allowed on college property, but with special arrangements with the college chaplain, candles may be burned for religious ceremonies within the prayer chapel.

Morning Prayer

A short period of prayer is held each Monday morning in the prayer chapel. Prayer requests may be placed in the box in the dining hall or sent to the chaplain by email.

FUSE

A group from Wilson travels to weekly Christian fellowship at nearby Shippensburg University. FUSE meets from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursdays. The Wilson van leaves at 8 p.m. from the rear entrance of Sarah’s Coffeehouse. These meetings have dynamic speakers and a great praise band.

Special Events

The chaplain’s office periodically hosts special events. Watch campus newsletters and emails for details.
