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

Society for the Two Tasks
Soul & Mind
Saturdays, 11 am (Starts 9/12)
Phillips Brooks House, 309

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.

Christian Community - Singing,
Prayer and Teaching
Friday, Oct 2, 8 pm
Phillips Brooks House, Harvard Yard
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. As always, many of us head out afterward for food and refreshment in the Square. Join us and bring a friend! Write Jeff Barneson for more information.

Fall Getaway in New Hampshire
Friday-Sunday, Oct 9-11
Toah Nipi
Join us for a weekend away in the midst of New England's fall foliage extravaganza - Hiking, canoeing, meeting other grad students in a beautiful natural setting. Toah Nipi is the perfect spot to find quiet space after the crazy start to the school year - Time for Bible reading and discussion, worship and prayer. Plus, Monday is a holiday at most of the campuses so you can catch up on work.
