Other Spiritual Formation Offerings
Kansas City Campus
On the Kansas City Campus, Kresge Chapel stands at the center of the campus. Community worship is a central part of our lives together. Worship is every Tuesday and Wednesday at 11:25 a.m. Each week students, faculty, staff, and guests gather in the chapel for worship.
Leadership for these services is provided by a variety of persons, including students, faculty, staff, graduates, and area clergy, with careful attention to offering a diverse range of worship styles.
Eucharist is celebrated on campus several times each week. The Saint Paul Choir, along with other worship ministries (i.e. vocal, liturgical dance, instrumental) enhances our community worship experiences. Other forms of worship and art also enrich our spiritual lives. Evening prayers, early morning devotions, Taizé services, and special occasions offer opportunities for additional times of worship.
Oklahoma City Campus
The Saint Paul community gathers for worship at 11:25 a.m. on Tuesdays in Harris Chapel at Oklahoma City. Students, faculty, staff, alums, and area clergy provide leadership for these services. Eucharist is often celebrated.
The Lord is near; have no anxiety, but in everything make your requests known to God in prayer and petition with thanksgiving. Then the peace of God, which is beyond our utmost understanding, will keep guard over your hearts and your thoughts, in Christ Jesus.

|Saint Paul offers students a variety of covenant groups to nurture and strengthen their spiritual lives. Some students gather to follow the discipline of Covenant Discipleship groups, which support and hold one another accountable in their spiritual journeys. Other students find it nourishing to form covenants with groups related to their denominations or other programs. The Director of Community Formation and student staff help structure and promote these groups.
