Chapel & Convocation Schedules

The spiritual life of Westminster Seminary California is nurtured by Morning Devotions on Tuesdays and Thursdays and student-advisor prayer groups on Wednesdays. Morning Devotion speakers include faculty, local pastors, missionaries, and Christian lay people. All devotional exercises are governed by the Word of God, which remains the true guide in Christian worship and prayer, as well as in all other activities of the Christian life and life on campus. All of our Morning Devotion messages are available in the WSC Resource Center or through iTunes.

WSC also hosts various lecturers and academic convocations throughout each academic year. These events provide WSC students to hear from and interact with visiting pastors and scholars on a variety of issues of interest to theological students. To allow for extended lectures on these days, the normal course schedule is adapted to our Convocation Schedule.

Fall 2022 Morning Devotion Series

Tuesdays: Guest Pastors

This Fall we look forward to hearing devotionals from a variety of pastors during our Tuesday morning chapels. We hope you will be able to join us.

Thursdays: The Apostles' Creed

The Apostles' Creed began to take shape as the Rule of Faith, which is found in some of the very earliest and most important post-apostolic writers. It took shape gradually, reaching its mature form in the mid-fourth century, used as a teaching tool to catechize children after their baptism and before their profession of faith and to guide the instruction of converts. For most of two millennia it has also been an integral part of Christian worship and it is regarded one of the ecumenical creeds confessed by all Christians, in all places and times. 

 The seminary faculty is privileged to explain the twelve articles of the faith again for our time, as the Reformed have always done, and we hope that you find this series encouraging in your Christian journey as you look to God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit for salvation and comfort, and await the Lord's return.
