Protestant Chaplaincy Welcome Brunch

Come enjoy apple cider doughnuts, coffee, and fruit while meeting the Protestant community at Tufts. There will be an introduction to campus ministries by Protestant Chaplain Dan Bell at 10:30 a.m., cornhole games, and plenty of time to hang out and meet new friends.

All are welcome. All are valued as part of the community. All are loved by God. The Protestant Chaplaincy strives to be a radically welcoming and inclusive Christian community. We celebrate our diversity in the Body of Christ as we join for worship, prayer, fellowship, and service to love God and our neighbors.
