Prayer & Service

A unique aspect of life in the HRC, is our devotion to prayer and to service. The Memorial Chapel, which was restored and dedicated thanks to the contributions of Ted & Sue Getterman and Bill & Mary Jo Robbins, is the site of daily prayer, mornings (Monday-Friday) and evenings (Monday-Thursday).

Alternative Chapel
Beginning Fall 2013, the HRC began offering alternative chapel credit for any students living in our community who would like to attend HRC Prayer Services instead of Baylor Chapel. Faith undergirds all we do in the HRC and our prayer services are the hallmark of the HRC's Christian commitment. The prayer services offer students a chance to pause amidst the busyness and spend time devoting themselves to God. For those interested in enrolling in HRC alternative chapel, please contact

The Spiritual Growth & Service Committee puts on regular opportunities for its members to devote themselves to serving others in the HRC, Baylor, and Waco.


  • Restoration Haven at Estella Maxey - Every week, a group of students from the HRC travel to the Estella Maxey Housing Complex to serve Restoration Haven, a program designed to partner underprivileged students from the Waco area with college students who can mentor and tutor them.
