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

A Service of Prayer and Sending
Saturday, Apr 16, 7:30 pm
Appleton Chapel, Memorial Church, Harvard Yard
This Saturday we will celebrate our oldest HGSCF tradition - The Ordination to Daily Work - a worship and commissioning service for our graduating members. For 39 years, we have met at the end of each year to pray for our graduating friends and celebrate God's calling in our lives - calling us together, to Himself and sending us into our work. Joining us as preacher this year is Bishop Brian Greene, Pentecostal Tabernacle. All of us, including family, friends, professors and pastors are invited. Worship begins at 7:30 pm.

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.
