Chapel office unveils new breakout options for students...
With the amount of students enrolling at Lipscomb growing every year, the chapel office is choosing to grow along with the campus by offering a wider range of chapels that can be attended.The chapel office at Lipscomb University loves to keep things fresh every year, and this semester is no exception.
With all the changes going on, it makes sense that this year’s chapel theme is “Journey.”
Following along with that theme, the chapel office decided to do something different and add a twist on breakout chapels. Instead of only having the usual offerings that we have had for the past few years, students will now have a wider variety of focus breakouts that they can attend.
These ten focus breakouts include various topics like men and women specific groups and a category on how to share your faith. The classes even go as far as offering advice on how to be faithful with your finances.
With the more extensive variety, the chapel office hopes to gain interest from students in at least one of the special subjects that are offered. Despite the limited space, the focus breakouts will offer a unique twist to the usual chapel schedule. Students will be able to be more involved and have a more intimate chapel environment due to the lowered amount of crowds.
These focus breakouts will be held for six weeks from Sept. 4 to Oct. 9. Many students are excited for the chance to get more involved in breakout chapels.
“I usually go to the breakout chapels in Collins or Swang, so having more options is a good thing because it will shorten the chapel crowds and give people a chance to grow spiritually in a much more personal way,” senior Matt Perry said.
Other students will continue their usual breakout chapel routines like senior Naomi Jones plans on doing.
“Hymn chapel has always been my favorite breakout chapel to attend. I’m glad we will have new options on campus during my last year here at Lipscomb, but I will still attend my usual breakout chapel,” Jones said.
While each breakout chapel will only have a certain amount of people that it can allow in, it will widen the variety of breakouts that a student can attend. Hymn chapel and other popular breakout chapels will potentially benefit from the lessening of crowds, offering a more personal worship experience.
