Christ Chapel’s ministry is open to all students, staff, and faculty of Texas State University, and to adults who are interested in supporting the ministry’s goals. Participants are not required to attend a certain number of times in order to be considered part of the ministry; the welcome we extend is unconditional.
However, some students may choose to explore their faith lives more intentionally through the ministry of Christ Chapel. Toward that end, students are invited to enroll in Servants of the Cross, an order of students in ministry. Servants of the Cross make a commitment to a program of four components, offered on a rotating cycle over a three-semester period.
This semester's offering: a survey using “The Bible’s Big Story,” a study of biblical history and content that explores the underlying themes of God’s redemptive work, culminating in Christ. By the course’s completion, participants will be able to open a Bible to any section and have a general understanding of the sections context. Participants will also be given interpretive tools by which to understand the Bible without resorting to literalism and with intellectual responsibility.
Registration is required; the classes will meet Fridays for 6 weeks at 11:00 and conclude by 3:00; lunch will be included. Indicate your interest in person or through email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
