is about growing deeper in your faith with a “Wesleyan” flair. As a College our denominational roots stretch back to John Wesley, an Anglican Priest who had plenty to say about personal and social holiness, radical hospitality, and grace. LOTS of grace. This fellowship carries out this theological prospective with fun and purpose. We would love for you to join us. Contact Julie Holly, Chaplain at 205.226.4761 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Located between the Olin Center and the Meyer Planetarium, this round structure, highlighted by a central altar and vivid stained glass windows, serves as the center of religious life on campus. Services are held weekly in the Chapel and reflect the diversity of the Christian tradition. Service projects, Bible studies, small group discussions, and retreats are all a part of religious life at the college, which encourages the development of a mature faith and an understanding of the varieties of religious experience.
Symbolism in the Chapel Windows
The basic theme of the nave of Yeilding Chapel is a celebration of the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. This theme is dramatized by the colors and events in the seasons of the Christian year. In brief, the Christian year seeks to tell the story of the great events of the life of Christ and, therefore, to relate once more in yet another way the themes of the Gospel. There are six major seasons in the Christian year, in chronological order: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Trinity. (Trinity is sometimes divided into two sub-seasons: Pentecost and Kingdomtide.) These six seasons comprise two liturgical cycles. One cycle revolves around the birth of Jesus and the other around his crucifixion/resurrection. For more information on the specific symbols, you may explore the links below.
