The Congregation at Duke University Chapel


Adult Forum

On Sunday mornings during the academic year, adults meet for the Adult Forum from 9:45 - 10:45 a.m in the lowest level of the Divinity School. With a variety of guest speakers, the Adult Forum offers presentations and discussions on a wide range of topics. The thought-provoking topics include Biblical studies, current social issues and the work of mission agencies. We have been quite fortunate to have many inspiring messages and challenging words brought to our class by our peer leaders and by internationally recognized experts and theologians. Past classes are available on our YouTube channel and on this webpage.


Adult Bible Study

Adults gather to study the scriptures on Sunday mornings from 9:45 - 10:45 a.m. in a classroom in the lowest level of the Divinity School. Semester-long studies on a book of the Bible are held each fall and spring. Typically, in the fall the focus is on a book from the Old Testament and in the spring the focus is on a New Testament book. In addition, a Sunday morning Bible study is held in the summer. Details on these classes are available in the eNews.


Small Groups

Education occurs throughout the week. We offer multiple book groups throughout the year to explore topics in depth. In addition to discussing assigned reading, book groups also share joys and concerns with one another. These book groups typically meet by Zoom.

Life Together Groups are our small group ministry that focuses simply on sharing our lives and prayers with one another in order to develop deeper relationships. We currently have four Life Together Groups, which meet every other week. New participants and new groups are always welcome.


New Member Class

A four-week membership class, offered each spring and fall, is an opportunity to learn more about the Congregation and consider the possibility of membership. The class meets on Sunday mornings from 9:45 - 10:45 a.m. in the lowest level of the Divinity School.
