Christian/Protestant Programing for Fall 2021

Amherst Protestant Offerings, Fall 2021

*Due to monitoring and needing to adapt to COVID numbers, locations will be updated shortly for all these events.  Please check back for up-to-date information about where programs will meet.

Gather & EvenSong - Monday evenings at 7pm Sep/Oct - Tent 2, Webster Circle; Nov/Dec - Chapin Chapel

Every Monday evening at 7pm we gather for a time of worship, reflection, prayer, song and communion in the (very expansive!) Protestant tradition. 

The last Monday of the month, our service is a contemplative sung service with candlelight and prayer in the Taizé tradition.

Everyone is welcome, whether you’ve been to church a thousand times, or you’re wondering what this whole thing is about. Come searching. Come wondering. Come as you are.  Join this welcoming campus community as we ask big questions, grow, and live into our faith.  

Midweek Retreat - Wednesday morning 20 minute service beginning September 1st - now in Chapin Chapel

Join other students midweek for a short but soulful service to bring centering and peace to your day.  We will share different forms of prayer from the Christian tradition, followed by a brief time of reflection and sharing (for those who desire).  Absolutely all are welcome.

Special Events: Dates and locations TBD

Fall Campfire Sing-along - Keefe Fire Pit
