Purpose Statement
As an institution centered in the Judeo-Christian tradition and affiliated with the United Church of Christ, Catawba College seeks to engage all peoples, regardless of their denominational or religious tradition, in faith and fellowship within our college community. We welcome you to attend chapel services in Omwake-Dearborn Chapel on Tuesday evenings and select Sunday mornings and explore your faith in a welcoming environment.

Scholars of the Chapel
For those interested in serving during these services, Scholars of the Chapel engage in leading the musical dimension of the service. Approximately twelve individuals assisted by a staff advisor prepare hymns and/or contemporary worship music that reflects the service’s theme. Other opportunities to assist with services exist. If interested, please contact Dr. Kenneth Clapp at


Holy Communion
Each month, Dr. Clapp reserves one chapel service as an opportunity to partake in the remembrance of our Lord Jesus Christ’s sacrifice of himself for our salvation. These services generally occur on the last Tuesday of the month.

Several programs geared towards assisting students who desire to explore their vocations or contribute to the general Salisbury/Rowan County community include: The Year of Inquiry Program, the Retreat Leadership Corps, Catawba Outdoor Adventures, Volunteer Catawba, and the DISCOVER Program.
