Chapel: Chapel services are held every Monday through Thursday, 11:00 - 11:45 a.m., and are an intentional part of our CIU educational program. Tuesday and Thursday chapels are designed for the entire university to gather together. Monday and Wednesday chapels are typically designed for segments of the community to meet together in separate venues, although during special emphasis weeks, such as Christian Life Conference, World Christian Week, and focus weeks, the entire university gathers together as one group. Attendance at chapel is required for faculty, staff and all undergraduate students.
