Initiatives for Students

The Sider Institute regularly provides enrichment opportunities for students at Messiah College.

Wittlinger Chapel Series

Held each fall, this chapel series – sponsored by the Institute and named in honor of Dr. Carlton O. Wittlinger, a Messiah College faculty member and historian of the Brethren in Christ tradition – introduces first-year students to biblical themes central to the Brethren in Christ Church, the founding denomination of Messiah College.

The chapel series focuses on three key themes: peace, holiness and reconciliation. Each talk is given by a member of the Messiah College Community of Educators.
