Weekday Chapel services

Weekday Chapel services are from 10:15 to 10:35 a.m. each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in Wartburg Chapel. Chapel time is a brief opportunity to gather with students, staff, and faculty to reflect on God and faith. Mondays will feature faculty and staff faith stories and blessings, Wednesdays will be a morning prayer service, and Fridays will have Senior Chapels. Interfaith chapels will be held during the last week each month.

Upcoming speakers:


Monday, March 14: Justin Crouse, Faith and Finance
Wednesday, March 16: Wednesday Lent Worship - Lent Through the Senses
Friday, March 18: Women's Appreciation Service


Over the next five weeks Wednesday Chapel services will be focused on the season of Lent. Lent is the 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter. On Wednesdays, we will have a Lent worship service with the theme "The Senses of Lent." This theme will focus on the five senses — touch, sound, smell, sight, and taste. Each week we will examine scripture through one of these senses.  

Sanctuary on Wednesdays

Sanctuary is a casual service that takes place on Wednesday nights in the Chapel Commons. It provides students with the opportunity to relax and center themselves around God’s word in the midst of their busy week. All are welcome at 9 p.m. in Chapel Commons (basement), and come early at 8:45 for snacks.

Offices closed during Wednesday Chapel time during Lent

The Christian church year season of Lent sets aside the six weeks prior to the Easter celebration of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, as a time to press “pause” and return to questions about God’s purposes and our own. During the Wednesdays of Lent, college administrative offices, as well as the Den and the Konditorei, will close during Wednesday Weekday chapel time, 10:15-10:35 a.m. (The W, Zesty Orange, Security Office, Information Desk, Library, and Mensa will remain open). This provides time for faculty, staff, and students to participate in the Lenten chapels or take a break from meetings, lessons, and daily work. Please note that food ordered through GET will be available as soon as the stores open, including board plan meal transfers. Lent began March 2 and continues until April 14.

Parking rules to be more strictly enforced, towing possible

Vehicles in violation of the Wartburg parking policy can be issued tickets and assessed fines by Campus Safety & Security. When a vehicle creates a hazard or safety concern, blocks a service or campus roadway, or is habitually in violation of the college’s parking regulations it may be towed (Section II:J Towing and Booting).

Charges incurred during the towing process are the responsibility of the parking permit holder/driver. Damages that may occur to the vehicle during towing will be settled between the owner and the towing company and are not the responsibility of the College.

All violations are subject to tow; however, in most cases good faith efforts will be made to contact the registered driver(s) of the vehicle before towing. If an individual is found to be a habitual violator (four or more of the same violation), one attempt will be made to contact the registered driver(s). If the vehicle is not moved in a reasonable amount of time or contact is not made, the vehicle will be towed. Some violations will result in an immediate ticket and tow without an attempt to contact the vehicle driver(s). Those include, but are not limited to, vehicles parked in fire lanes and vehicles parked in handicapped spaces without proper authorization.

Vehicles will be towed to Dale’s Auto Service, 119 4th St. SW. Vehicles that are not picked up will incur a daily storage fee.
