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 (see below).

Fall 2020 Morning Devotion Series

Tuesdays: Jesus’ disciples asked him to “teach us to pray.” Obviously, prayer is an essential ingredient in the lives of the Gods’ people. This semester we will explore various prayers throughout redemptive history in hopes of learning more about our God, his word, salvation, ourselves, and our world. Our Dean of Students, Rev. Chuck Tedrick and various guests will lead us through reflections upon various prayers offered by the saints throughout the ages.


Thursdays: The Scripture is resplendent with unexpected and radical reversals in the  lives, events, conversations, and destinies of her characters. Salvation itself is a great reversal from being dead in sin in Adam, to being alive in Christ. Join us in listening and learning together as WSC professors and guest lectures lead us through a series unpacking The Great Reversals of Scripture.
