The base chapel offers a variety of religious, social and educational programs. Retreats and special religious services are conducted throughout the year. Opportunities for spiritual and personal growth are offered in areas such as couple enrichment and interpersonal relationships. The religious education program, Protestant and Catholic, includes classes for all ages on Sunday mornings, as well as small group Bible studies. Catholic Mass and a Contemporary Protestant Service are celebrated weekly. Arrangements for marriage, baptism and other spiritual rites are made with individual chaplains. Marriage preparation with a Protestant chaplain takes at least three months. The requirements for Catholic marriage preparation are six months as specified by the local Diocese of Fairbanks.
