Fellowship

Sunday Dinners: Join us each Sunday evening to eat dinner after attending Worship service! We walk over to Carm following the worship service. For more information, contact Nissa Koerner at nissa.koerner@tufts.edu.

Outreach

retreat2Social Justice is an important value of many faiths. We are called as Christians to be God’s hands and feet in the world, therefore PSA and the Protestant Chaplaincy encourages students to participate in outreach activities through the school year. 

Once a month members of PSA help serve at local food pantries and soup kitchens. If you would like to volunteer with us or would like more information on outreach opportunities contact the PSA External Outreach Coordinator: Jack Eidson: jack.eidson@tufts.edu
