Spiritual Life Organizations
Finding a spiritual community in college is important. We have several types and styles of gatherings — some large and some small — because we know that spiritual interests and needs are as diverse as the students on campus.
Whether you come to college with a strong background in your faith tradition or are searching for spiritual meaning and purpose, you will soon find that you are not alone. Spiritual life groups offer support, encouragement, and a reminder that college life is not always about the next paper or exam.

Interfaith Prayer Room
The Interfaith Prayer room is located in the basement of Memorial Chapel in Room 103. (Use the side entrance nearest to Kelly Library and go down the steps.) It is available when the Chapel is open (8 AM - 11 PM). Individuals and groups may use this space for silence, prayer, meditation, reading, quiet discussion, etc. It is equipped with prayer rugs, meditation pillows, candles, religious symbols, religious texts, comfy chairs, a tea pot, an aromatherapy diffuser, and more.
The creation of this prayer and meditation room was made possible by a grant from the Interfaith Youth Core in 2017.
Interfaith Student Union
The Emory & Henry Interfaith Student Organization strives to make the issues of religious equality in the world known to the student body of the college. ISU sponsors Interfaith prayer services, lyceums, Sacred Sparks campfires, and an annual Passover Seder. ISU also strives to diversify the religious interactions of the average student at EHC, and to promote inter-religious understanding and acceptance.
When & Where: Tuesdays at 7 PM in the Inclusion & Dialogue Center or at the MAWA Firepit for Sacred Sparks Campfires.

“Kerygma” is an ancient Greek word meaning “proclamation.” This group gathers with Campus Christian Fellowship (CCF) and Expedition as part of Family Dinner Night. Kerygma’s goal is to support one another in discerning God’s will for their lives. Participants include persons discerning a call to ordained ministry as well as others who seek to honor God in their chosen professions. Besides talking about their own successes and challenges of living as Christians, they host guest speakers, clergy and laity, who talk about how they nurture and share their faith in their daily life and work. Also, Kerygma members welcome admissions representatives from seminaries and periodically make visits to seminaries.
If you would like specific information regarding seminary visits, please ask Associate Chaplain Sharon Wright firstname.lastname@example.org.
When & Where: Thursdays, 5:45pm, Room 102 in the Chapel
Students gather weekly to pray for our community, our campus, and one another. Everyone is welcome!
When & Where: Thursdays at 7:00 PM in Memorial Chapel
