Local Houses of Worship

As an institution with a long standing Presbyterian heritage Wilson College encourages students to build their spiritual life through both involvement in worship at Wilson, and through participation in a worshiping community in the local area. Wilson is proud of its positive relationship with the Chambersburg community and therefore strongly encourages students to get involved with churches and volunteer organizations in the community.

The college worships as a community on the first Wednesday of each month from 12–12:30 p.m., along with other special services. We do not celebrate the service of the Lord’s Day as Wilson College is not primarily a worshipping community, but an academic institution. Instead, we encourage students to attend a weekend worship service of their own religious tradition in order to maintain their spiritual practice.

The organizations listed in this section of the website are local religious communities that have expressed interest in inviting students, faculty and staff to join them in worship. This is not meant to be an all-inclusive list.
