The Harvard Graduate School Christian Fellowship (HGSCF) is a University-wide community of Harvard students, faculty, staff and friends who are fascinated with Jesus and are curious about what his life and teaching mean for us, for our study in the University and our work in the world.

The HGSCF is sponsored by InterVarsity's Graduate & Faculty Ministries and is affiliated with The Harvard Chaplains. We also work alongside ministries on many Boston campuses: visit our Boston-wide grad ministry.

FIRST FRIDAY #4
Connect with the Graduate
Christian Community
Singing - Prayer - Scripture

Friday, Dec 2, 8 pm
The Parlor
Phillips Brooks House, Harvard Yard
On the First-Friday each month we come together - grad students and faculty from around the University - to honor God in song, prayer and teaching from the Bible. If you’re new to this community, this is great way to get connected. This month we observe the season of Advent. This is the beginning of the "Church Year" and is kept by followers of Jesus around the world. We will join them with songs and readings as we look to the coming of Christ - both the first time as a baby and ultimately as reigning king. We also invite students to share a song, reading, poem, rap or dance - write back if you have a piece to share. If you’re curious but cautious - or even skeptical - we hope you’ll come and visit. Everyone is welcome. Worship begins at 8 pm. Bring a friend and join us! Write Jeff Barneson for more information.


New Orleans Urban Trek
Spring Break 2017
SERVE - BUILD - BE TRANSFORMED
On August 29, 2005, the levees failed and most of the city of New Orleans was flooded. Over 1,500 people died and 100,000+ homes were destroyed - families, businesses, schools, congregations, lives were swept away. The disaster 11 years ago focused the eyes of the world on the profound and persistent problems faced by the poor in New Orleans.

This March we’re heading down to New Orleans again (our 9th time) to join
Castlerock Community Church/Urban Impact
as they serve their neighborhood - community outreach, cleanup and work with youth. Besides just having a blast, our work places us in the middle of a diverse faith community - discussing complex issues they face in their city, and exploring what it means to for us to pursue justice and love mercy with our own lives. This week could change your life!

SOCIETY FOR THE TWO TASKS
Soul & Mind
Saturdays, 11 am
Parlor, First Floor
Phillips Brooks House, Harvard Yard

The Society for the Two Tasks (S2T) was founded in 2004 and meets each Saturday during the school year in Harvard Yard in the Philips Brooks House. The name of the group comes from a speech given by Charles Malik in 1980 at Wheaton College, where he argued that the church had two tasks set before it, saving the soul and saving the mind, and that it had largely failed in the latter. This group strives to address the task of saving the mind by engaging in study and discussion of a wide variety of topics relating to Scripture, apologetics, historic theology, world religions, secular critiques of Christianity, and the claims of Jesus. Our meetings are open to everyone. Write to Finny Kuruvilla for updates on the weekly question or to be added to the email list.


DAILY PRAYER @ HARVARD
Mon-Fri, 8 am
Bettens Room, Third Floor
Phillips Brooks House, Harvard Yard
Each morning we gather to pray that Harvard University - students, faculty and staff - will flourish by God’s grace. We pray that we might be agents of blessing and that God would shape each of us for the ministry of reconciliation to which we are called. Join us! We are meeting this fall in Phillps Brooks House in the NW corner of Harvard Yard. Keep up at the Facebook Group, or write to Pete Williamson for more information.
