(Last Updated: April 24, 2006)
Seminary Worship, occurring on Tuesday mornings (10:30-11:20am) during fall and spring semesters and on Wednesday mornings (9:30-10:20am) during summer semester, is an important part of life at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary. Our mission statement describes us as "a learning and worshiping community," and our weekly Worship is one central strategy for implementing that mission. This page provides access to Worship resources including sound files and readings related to the services.
