The mission of Spirituality Programming at Culver-Stockton College is to sustain the spirit of the College's heritage as a College of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), by providing a caring and supportive environment in which students examine their faith, discover a deep sense of their being and express it by sharing their gifts. Spiritual Programming is guided by the College Chaplain, in conjunction with the College's Ministry Council.
Chapel services are held every other week at 5 p.m. in the Merillat Recital Hall, located in the Robert W. Brown Performing Arts Center. See a listing of local churches.
The College stresses to students the value service activities have on one's community, church and humanity. Students who perform service to others also benefit, by learning more about their personal strengths and weaknesses.
Service-Learning trips take students to communities and puts them in new situations. It gives students the opportunity to help those in need and meet many interesting people.
EXTREME DOME MAKEOVER
The College hosts Extreme Dome Makeover at the start of the academic year and invites all students to participate in service projects all over Canton to help those in need and improve the surrounding community.
