我们为什么要聚在一起做礼拜? 为什么我们每周做三次?

当我还是个孩子的时候,我问了很多“为什么”?”的问题. 我为什么要吃甜菜? 我为什么要洗澡? 我为什么要学代数? The answer was usually something about it “being good for me.” Hardly compelling to a young boy who believes he will 生活 forever. 事实证明他们是对的. 这些活动对我有好处, even if that hasn’t always been the most compelling answer at the time. 我本可以从一些让我在淋浴时跑去吃甜菜的宏大叙事中获益.

So, why do we get together for chapel 作为一个ag娱乐官网? 为什么我们每周做三次? 好的问题.

After one of Peter’s first sermons over 3,000 people committed themselves to following Jesus. 使徒行传2:42描述了他们的反应:“他们常常专心领受使徒的教训,彼此相交, 到擘饼和祷告的时候.“当人们被耶稣吸引时,我们会立即沉浸在一个有着相似经历的群体中.

这段旅程的轨迹将引导我们成为深受上帝之爱的人,成为被爱塑造的人. 这趟旅程本身就是公共的. Encountering fellow sojourners will do more to shape our experience of the love of God than anything else. 他们会挑战我们, 提高我们, 让我们生气, 延伸我们, 让我们, 鼓励我们, 接我们, 并迫使我们继续前进. 所以我们聚在一起.

同样,我们自愿选择作为一个团体聚集在一起,致力于圣经的教导, which is meant to introduce us to the incredible love of God in Christ, and  inspire us to pursue living in such a way that he will be first in all things and in all ways. We don’t by nature default into wisdom and faithfulness. We are frail creatures often duped by our idols and our own selves. Scripture has a way of connecting us to the bigger story of God, 把东西放到该放的地方. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Psalm 111:10). We need to have our 思想 re-made by the love of God. 所以我们聚集在一起.

Growing in love is not solely an academic or intellectual process. 它不会忽视心灵, 事实上,上帝的爱最终解放了我们的思想,推动我们发挥最大的能力和潜力. When people become captivated by God’s love it is a whole-self response and process. 当耶稣被问到最大的命令是什么时, 最重要的是, 他回答说, 以色列啊,你当听, the Lord your God is one Lord: and you shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart, 灵魂, 心, 和力量. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:30-33). So everytime we get together for chapel we are hoping to create space to let the Lord teach us, 到达我们, 并激励我们全心全意地爱他, 并学会如何彼此相爱, 以及我们在世界上所有的邻居. 所以我们聚集在一起.

When we gather we are going to move beyond any one of our personal preferences, 风格,  和舒适. We are hoping to include many expressions of how God’s people worship him, 向他学习, 并向他表达我们的想法. 我们将学习新歌,并带熟悉的歌曲. 我们将学习旧的祈祷,并祈祷新的. 我们将相互学习, 彼此祝福, 为彼此祷告, 并学习如何在彼此身边敬拜上帝, 作为一个ag娱乐官网. We were made for relationship with God, so we are going to 祈祷. 奥古斯丁说:“当我们唱歌时,我们祈祷了两次.“所以我们要唱歌. 我们被造来敬拜上帝. 所以我们聚集在一起.

We will also be hospitable hosts to a myriad of guests who will come to bless, 挑战, 鼓励, 教我们. Some will have a profound imp行为 on you, and you will 还记得 them as long as you 生活. Others you will quickly forget, but your neighbor will be imp行为ed. Either way, we will warmly welcome those who have come to share their hearts with us. We will endeavor to transcend the culture’s lack of tolerance for differing voices. We will hear from brothers and sisters who are like us, and those who are different than us. 所以我们聚集在一起.

God has a plan to transform us into people that look like Jesus--people whose 生活s have been overtaken by love. He wants to teach us how to 生活 生活s that 反映 the school motto--”Christus Primatum Tenens” (Christ first in all things) that 反映s the foundational truth of Colossians 1:18, “So that in everything [Christ] might have the supremacy.“这是一项艰苦的工作,也是一项美丽的工作. It is slow work, and the journey is never a straight line. 所以我们聚会,我们定期聚会. 几千年来,神的子民制定了有规律的节奏,帮助他们回到神的爱中来. So our ag娱乐官网 gathers three times a week to make ourselves available together. 这是一个独一无二的机会. 我们鼓励你向前一步, and enthusiastically enter the time expecting that God will use it to bless you, 祝福别人, 挑战并装备你去祝福别人. It won’t happen every time, but there is a power in making yourself regularly available. 所以我们聚在一起,上帝很高兴与我们同在.

教堂 services are like the family meal, the one gathering to which everyone is invited. In chapel we encounter the value of the various and diverse members of the Westmont family, 过去的, 现在甚至未来. 日复一日, 在繁忙的日程安排中, 做礼拜是一种让我们扎根的方式, 还记得, 属于, and become available to the overwhelming love of God. 

我们会聚在一起,这对我们有好处!

Capax一些

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in a small group? Capax一些 (松散翻译, “上帝的空间”), is the name for the ag娱乐官网 of small groups that meets during the school year, sponsored by the Westmont Campus Pastor's Office and the Westmont Center for Spiritual Formation. These groups are designed to be a place where you can learn to hear the voice of God in Scripture, 建立终身的友谊, and find peace in the midst of sometimes busy and hectic 生活s. 想知道更多吗?? 看看这个简短的信息 video

韦斯特蒙特教堂使命宣言

教堂 services are an integral part of our regular communal rhythm of worship and word, re心ing us to orient our 生活s around Christ and His kingdom. 爱神和彼此相爱是我们最高的呼召, 所以我们崇拜, 反映, 祈祷, 作为一个团体向他学习. 

Our mission is to connect with God and with one another, 

and to be equipped to engage the world with the good news of Jesus Christ. 

作为一个 ag娱乐官网, we worship with the Church around the world 以及历年来的教会. We listen to a variety of voices and sing songs and 祈祷 祈祷ers written by a 人的多样性 和基督教传统.

We gather in Murchison Gym on Monday, 周三, and Friday from 10:30-11:20 am.

教堂 is mandatory for all students of Westmont College (regardless of their class, 包括第二学期的大四学生). 在Westmont, the formation of the life of the 心 is inseparable from the life of the heart and 灵魂. 教堂 is, therefore, an essential component of your education at Westmont. 我们每周聚在一起敬拜三次,因为聚集在永活的神面前会改变我们的思想, 行为, 生活, 和爱.

基督是我们的信息! We preach to awaken hearts and bring every person into the full understanding of truth. It is our passion to present everyone mature in Christ (Col 1:27-29).

教堂出席政策

The regular rhythm of chapel is a vital distinctive part of the Westmont educational experience. 因此, 我们将尽一切努力帮助学生优先参与礼拜堂,并解决任何阻碍他们充分参与我们敬拜ag娱乐官网的问题. 教堂 is required, but twelve chapel absences are permitted each semester (almost one per week). 这十二次缺席可以用来睡觉, 研究, 从疾病中恢复, 预约医生, 与学校无关的旅行, 不规律的工作时间表, 面试, 汽车故障, 去机场的行程, 等. 

学生有足够的机会来管理他们的教堂出席率,并确保他们不会错过超过每学期允许的12次缺勤.  In addition to the regularly scheduled chapels on Monday, 周三, 和星期五早上, the Campus Pastor’s Office also delineates “elective chapels” throughout the semester.  这些选择包括各种各样的晚间活动或其他经批准的敬拜或圣经学习选择——每一个学生参加的活动都取代了他们常规的教堂活动. Students can view their chapel attendance record in real-time through the my.gebzeinsaatfirmalari.com 门户网站. 

你有责任

It is each student’s responsibility to monitor their chapel attendance record, manage their chapel attendance wisely over the course of each semester, and proactively communicate with the Campus Pastor’s Office (过去的orsoffice@gebzeinsaatfirmalari.com) 如果他们认为他们的出席记录有错误,或者如果他们经历了任何影响他们正常参加教堂活动的特殊情况. 教堂 attendance is overseen by the Campus Pastor's Office (过去的orsoffice@gebzeinsaatfirmalari.com)和教务长.

 

“管理好自己,这样别人就不必管你了."

 ——约翰·伍登教练

 

What Happens if a Student Exceeds Their Allowed Misses?

大多数威斯蒙特大学的学生在整个大学生涯中都不需要知道这个问题的答案.  然而, 如果你超过了允许的12次失误, additional 行为ion on your part is required to ensure your continued enrollment at the college.  继续往下读.

 

上诉过程

积极吸引:

If you have special circumstances that you believe will preclude you from participating in enough chapels, 你可以上网到 我们网站上的教堂出席页面 and fill out the Proactive 教堂 Appeal form for that semester. Your appeal will be either approved or denied and will be communicated to you.

 

教堂上诉表格: 

如果你的缺席次数超过了允许的缺席次数,你可以通过填写“礼拜堂上诉表格”对一次或多次缺席提出上诉 我们网站上的教堂出席页面.  Your appeal will be either approved or denied and will be communicated to you. If a student is unable to resolve the number of misses needed through the appeal process, 他们必须与校园牧师(或指定人员)会面,讨论学生超过允许缺勤的原因. 

 

教堂出席情况

The following statuses are assigned to students after each semester and apply to the following semester:

好站: 

Student did not exceed the 12 allowed misses and participated appropriately in chapel.

教堂警告:

学生被警告在未来的学期中保持适当的教堂参与,因为他们在学期中第一次超过了允许的12次. Students are only allowed on 教堂 Warning status one time in their Westmont career. 

 

教堂试用期:

学生应被告知,如果在下个学期未能保持适当的教堂参与,可能会导致一个学期的停学.  Students are generally placed on 教堂 Probation after exceeding the 12 allowed misses in multiple semesters, for failing to meet with the Campus Pastor after exceeding the 12 allowed misses for the first time, or if the student’s chapel attendance was deemed egregious. 如果学生在教堂试用,他们可能会失去注册下学期课程的优先顺序, 这可能会影响他们参与学生领导职位和/或全球教育项目的能力. If a student has been on  教堂 Probation twice during their time at Westmont, 他们可能会被移至暂停状态.

 

学期悬架:

Student is suspended from the college for one semester.  这种情况通常发生在学生通过他们的行为表现出持续缺乏履行学院教堂要求的承诺,或者反复超过允许的一个学期的教堂缺席,或者不与校园牧师或学生主任会面以解决他们的过度缺席. 休学的学生可以在下一个学期重新申请,并可以在重新申请过程中与学生生活工作人员会面.

 

教堂 Status for Semester Abroad and Leaves of Absence

During a semester in an off-campus program or while on a leave of absence, 学生的教堂状态是“暂停”.例如:, if a student is placed on 教堂 Warning status the semester prior to being off campus, the student would begin the semester back on campus still on 教堂 Warning status.  If a student is on 教堂 Warning or 教堂 Probation status, 他或她只有在返回校园的那个学期达到最低的教堂出勤率要求,才能回到“良好参与”状态. 

 

撤军

If a student withdraws for a semester or more while he or she is on 教堂 Warning or 教堂 Probation status, 他们可能会被要求与校园牧师进行对话,作为他们重新申请过程的一部分,以确保他们理解教堂出席政策,并确保他们承诺参与这项政策. The student returns to the chapel status they were on when they left the college.

教堂地位的决定由校园牧师(或指定人员)和(在某些情况下)学生主任自行决定,不得上诉.

被发现在参加礼拜堂时作弊或因行为或不参与电话活动而不尊重空间的学生, 电脑, 研究, 睡觉, 等.)将被要求与校园牧师会面, and it could affect their chapel status the following semester.
