Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m.
Each Tuesday and Thursday morning during the fall and spring semesters, the Samford community gathers for worship in Reid Chapel at 10 a.m. Students, faculty and staff are invited to meet together for the purposes of encouragement, instruction and reflection as a response to the inspired Word and redemptive work of God within and around us. On Tuesdays, the focus is on the inner life of faith, inviting thoughtful encounters with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through scripture, prayer and song. On Thursdays the focus is on the outer life of faith, inviting thoughtful responses to the call of God to seek justice, show compassion and share the Gospel. Featured speakers include members of the Samford community as well as noted guests from around the world.
One credit toward convo is given for each attendance.
Join one of these weekly meetings hosted in the home of a Samford faculty or staff member and led by a fellow student. Group members will share a meal together, study Scripture, offer prayers and build relationships for the sake of knowing Christ more clearly and walking with Him more closely.
The Office of Spiritual Life sponsors a campus-wide retreat each fall and spring, typically within the first few weeks of the semester, inviting students to pause from their hectic schedules and reconnect with Christ and with each other. Additionally, we offer retreats for participants in Samford Home Groups, the Global Missions Scholarship Program, and other specific groups within the larger Samford community.
