Come join in prayer, sharing lunch and sharing lives this Wednesday after chapel with Dr. Schifferdecker and Dr. Padgett in their monthly meeting. It’s a great time to talk about what’s happening with you and learn about others as we pray. We will meet a little later so people can go through the line and get some lunch. We meet upstairs in the OCC 213 small dining room.

J-Term Worship Lab Opportunity
Hello DL Community! Have you been anxious to put some of your best worship planning skills to the test? To spend a few hours in deep collaborative work with your DL classmates? Well, Spirit Lab has the perfect opportunity for you! The Thursday January 17th chapel service is designated to be a Worship Lab service planned and presented by DL students.
In order for this to happen, we will need a minimum of 5 DL students who will be on campus the week of January 14th. Students must commit to meeting on January 14th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm, January 16th from 7:00 – 8:00 pm and then available for the worship service at 11:00 on Thursday January 17th.
Please e-mail Sara Jensen at email@example.com to join the DL worship lab team or if you have any questions.
