"Late Night Chapel": Wednesdays at 7:45 P.M., KAIC upstairs
Most Wednesday nights during the year we create a space for worship, teaching and community at C of I called “Late Night.” Late Night is high on energy and low on Christian cliché, with an average weekly attendance of 70-90 students or more.
Late Night is a "gateway" for opportunities to serve, and for friendships that support growth in faith. Late Night is relevant to all students, whether from no church, asking questions, or actively maturing in faith. The majority of students come from Protestant and Catholic churches, but students who did not grow up attending church are also involved.
Chapel began In 1881 when Rev. Boone founded the College of Idaho. Chapel was held every day in Sterry Hall -- and was usually attended by all faculty, staff and students.
From the 1950's through the 1990's a small gathering of between eight and 15 students continued to meet each Tuesday morning at 11:15 for prayer, music and reflection in the small Prayer Chapel located at the West end of Jewett auditorium.
In 1999 this gathering was moved to the evening -- so we called it "Late Night" Chapel.
