One way to take full advantage of the many rich and exciting opportunities at SFTS is to join us during our 30-minute chapel service (during the school year at noon on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays). Monday chapel is a traditional Presbyterian worship service, Tuesday is a contemplative prayer service, Thursday is a praise service and Friday is a Communion service.
If you wish, you may join us for community lunch in Upper Alexander Hall on Mondays and Fridays. Here you have an opportunity to talk informally with students, staff, and faculty. Should you be interested in bringing your group on campus for chapel, a tour, or for lunch, we request three weeks advance notice.
Consider strolling around campus or make an appointment for a tour led by Seminary staff. During tours, you will hear about the history of the Presbyterian Seminary of the West, explore the historical campus buildings and learn more about the role of theological education in the world today.
