Worship Opportunities & Special Events
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 that individuals craft their praise to God in unique, particular ways. If you are interested in seeking, praying or worshiping, join us!
- Wednesday College Chapel, also known as Vespers, is a weekly gathering for campus-wide worship at 7 p.m. in the Susan B. Harris Chapel.
- YHC offers special holiday services for All Saints, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Ash Wednesday and Easter.
Spiritual Life Retreat
This annual event takes place each fall and is open to the entire campus community. The Spiritual Life Retreat is a weekend away for spiritual growth, transformation with worship, small groups and outdoor activities. It only costs $15, and there are scholarships available.
