Worship and celebration

However you choose to worship, Earlham offers a welcoming community that’s ready to celebrate alongside you. Join us at College Meeting for Worship on Sundays, join a student-led worship event, or create your own in partnership with the Office of Religious Life.

The weekly College Meeting for Worship combines quiet worship, readings, music, and a prepared message by a senior student or faculty member. Designed as a semi-programmed Quaker service, each week’s speaker is encouraged to creatively incorporate elements from his or her own religious tradition.

Spring 2021  — Together alone or alone together

Join us Sundays this spring as we learn about love. Worship begins at 1p.m. (EST) in Stout Meetinghouse and online.

  • From whom have you learned about love?
  • What does your religious tradition teach about love?
  • How has love changed you?
  • What scares you about love?
  • What impact can love have?
