Religious and Spiritual Opportunities on Campus

There are several weekly worship opportunities on-campus while school is in session during fall/spring semesters: 

Weekly Opportunities:

Thursdays, 9:50-10:20 a.m.    Numen Lumen, Sacred Space, Numen Lumen Pavilion
Numen Lumen is a time and space to take a break from the busyness of the week and refresh the spirit.  It is not a “worship service,” rather a time of reflection offered by a member of the Elon community or guest speaker.  Music is provided each week by students and faculty from the Music department.  Refreshments will be served following Numen Lumen. This year's theme is "Enduring Questions."
