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.

The Story of the Good News of the God Who Sets Us Free

New Orleans Urban Trek
Spring Break 2016
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 a decade 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 8th 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!

Dates:   March 12-19
Registration Deadline: February 10
Cost:   $375 plus plane fare

Each month we gather on the First-Friday to honor God with worship, prayer and teaching from the Bible. If you’re new to this community, this is great way to get connected. If you’re curious but cautious - or even skeptical - we hope you’ll come and visit. Everyone is welcome and we frequently head out afterward for food and refreshments in the Square. Worship begins at 8 pm. Write to Jeff Barneson for more information.

Soul & Mind
Saturdays, 11 am
Phillips Brooks House,
Third Floor, Bettens Room
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.

Mon-Fri, 8 am, Pusey Room
Memorial Church, Harvard Yard
Here’s a map

We are resuming on Monday, 8/17 and continue to pray for our University. We meet most days in the Pusey Room (but sometimes we have to move). Keep up at the Facebook Group, or write to Pete Williamson for more information.
