The Protestant Student Community organizes many different activities throughout the academic year at MIT. The following list reflects our regular activities.
The Annual Retreat
The annual retreat is a defining event of the Protestant Student Community. Chaplain John Wuestneck owns a cabin in the beautiful picturesque wilderness of Maine. The surrounding landscape seems to come right out of a movie! The cabin is hidden amongst some hills and is at the shore of a lake. Canoing, hiking, and simply relaxing are only some of the activities that the retreat has to offer! The retreat takes place in September every year (just before the it starts to get too cold!).
If you have any input on topic or time email Laura,
firstname.lastname@example.org. They generally include pizza and great conversation. Our bible study sessions are informal and relaxed, students are urged to express their opinions and interpretations of the topic at hand. Bible study often weaves traditional biblical passages with the happenings of everyday life at MIT. We often discuss real-life current issues and attempt to appreciate the changing world around us from a uniquely Christian point of view. Our conversations have inspired deep introspective thought and have allowed us to share many a carefree moment in laughter -- Bible Study is often an excellent pressure valve for the potentially stressful life at MIT!
The Protestant Student Community choir is quite active around Christmas and Easter every year. We invite all members of the MIT community interested in singing traditional hymns and modern Christian songs in a small, happy-go-lucky, group. Our choir sessions are informal and are primarily a means of sharing some time together.The choir hasn't restarted yet this year. If you're interested email Chaplain John, email@example.com
The Protestant Student Community is actively involved in, and helps sponsor, a tutoring program at the Fourth Presbyterian Church of South Boston on Mondays and Wednesdays. Though primarily attended by elementary school students, this program has drawn in some high school students from the local area high schools. To sign up email Mia,
We meet at the Kendall T station at 5:05pm, get off at Andrew's station (red line). We have dinner with the kids, have fun with kids helping them finish their homework from 6:00-7:00, leave church 7:05ish, and get back around 7:30ish depending on the T schedule.
Fourth Presbyterian Church is at:
