Chapels @ OKWU


Chapel at OKWU
 exists to help students grow in both their understanding and application of biblical truth during their four years the university. Each chapel seeks to uphold the mission of OKWU by worshipping the person of Christ, hearing from the truth of Scripture, and helping students to engage culture with a biblical worldview.

This Year’s Chapel Theme

“The person who loves their dream of community will destroy community, but the person who loves those around them will create community.”

-Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Chapel 2015-textPostmodern American culture has fallen in love with a dream of community where the language of tolerance, openness, and individual rights has trumped that of responsibility, morality, and covenant. The effect on community has created more of a nightmare than a dream for so many. Love as God has defined and purposed it to be has been subverted and sabotaged. Our task in chapel this year is to strip away the fallacies many of us have come to believe, and to recover the truth of what, and who, love really is. We need to reclaim community.

Four Year Chapel Curriculum

The Four Year Chapel Curriculum exist to show students where we are as a community and where we are headed. During the 2015-16 school year we will focus on community and the central idea surrounding the year will be how our worldview shapes the way we view our relationships. Some keywords to focus on will be salvation, forgiveness, reconciliation, unity, diversity, and love. We will work through scripture to help students reclaim what community was always intended to be.
