Chaplain's Office

The Chaplain's Office offers assistance to anyone looking for places for worship, for involvement in religious student groups, and spiritual or renewal opportunities in and around Grinnell. Our goal is help students find resources for worship, prayer or renewal in whatever tradition they currently practice as well as assist them in exploring traditions and opportunities for beginning a faith or spiritual journey. Let us know how we can help you get connected.

Religious & Spiritual Life

For many of us, religion and spirituality guide our choices, give us comfort, and bring us together with those who share our beliefs.

Our Center for Religious, Spirituality, and Social Justice can help you when you are looking for a local church, temple, or mosque, want to participate in a prayer or meditation group, or are looking for another spiritual or faith practice.


Social Justice Student Organizations

Social Justice Action Group

Social Justice Action Group (SJAG)

The Social Justice Action Group is committed to working directly towards peace, justice, and positive social change; which includes fighting hunger, promoting volunteerism, and building understanding. We have a focus on making an impact on and strengthening relationships within our local community of Grinnell, while keeping in perspective the national and global issues of social justice in the world at large.

Spiritual & Religious Life

Grinnell College is not affiliated with a single religion; our spiritual life is as varied and vibrant as our campus community itself. The staff at our Center for Religion, Spirituality, and Social Justice includes a chaplain, a rabbi, a Muslim prayer leader, and others who can help you explore your religious and spiritual life and learn more about the traditions of others.
