Daily chapels are held for the Emmaus students, staff, and faculty. Chapel provides an opportunity for the Emmaus community to come together daily for a devotional thought, 敬拜, 祈祷, 以及信息的交流. All full-time students are required to attend daily chapel, floor devotions, and 成长小组. This includes resident, nonresident, and continuing education students.

Semester-long exemptions may also be granted at the beginning of the semester by securing permission from Student Development. 表格可在前台领取.
If a student exceeds 10 skips per semester, s/he will fail chapel. Chapel attendance is recorded on student transcripts as Pass/Fail. STUDENTS MUST PASS CHAPEL EACH SEMESTER OF FULL-TIME ATTENDANCE IN ORDER TO GRADUATE.
