Student Engagement


Worship, planned by students and faculty, is an important part of the Perkins community. We worship together at 11:30 am every Wednesday and Thursday. Perkins Chapel is the heart of the SMU campus and is a means by which the entire SMU community comes together. Services are open to all.

Perkins Chapel is also the site for more intimate 20-25 minute services held Tuesdays through Fridays at 8 am.
