Worship is central to a life of faith. For some, worship includes loud music and for others, it means silence. Some follow a set liturgy, others do not. At YHC, we recognize the reality that each of us crafts our praise to God in unique, particular ways. The Office of Religious Life takes this into account, offering three distinct worship experiences every week. Each of these services is open to all who wish to attend. If you are interested in seeking, praying or worshiping, join us!

Spiritual Life Retreat
This annual event takes place each fall and is open to the entire campus community. It only cost $50, and there will be scholarships available. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hard Questions Study Group
The Hard Questions Study Group is a group that meets both virtually and in person. Virtually, it exists as a Facebook discussion group, considering the harder questions of faith. Once a week, the group gathers in the real world to discuss those questions and push our conceptualizations of the faith.
Mission Trips, Service Projects and Retreats
During the course of the year, the Office of Religious Life organizes many mission and service opportunities, including local volunteer work, hosting a campus-wide CROP WALK to fight hunger, a spring break building mission trip and the annual Spiritual Life Retreat at the beginning of the school year.
Lectures & Panels
Each year, the Office of Religious Life sponsors lecture series and panel discussions. Topics range from religious pluralism, Christianity and healthcare, the environment and capital punishment.
