The Protestant Community at Nazareth College is a Christian home away from home--a family on the Nazareth campus. It is a welcoming Christian fellowship, a place where you can find a sense of belonging on campus. It is a place where you will be accepted as you are, as a beloved child of God. It is also a place for becoming, for discerning and living out God’s call in your life.
Our community includes Christians from multiple denominations, including Assemblies of God, Baptist, Congregationalist, Episcopal, Lutheran, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Mennonite, Methodist, Non-Denominational, Reformed, United Church of Christ, and Wesleyan churches. Some folks don’t have a church background at all, and that’s OK too.
The Protestant Community at Nazareth is a place to experience God’s love on campus. It is a place to hear the story of Jesus, to be transformed by his grace, and respond to God’s call in your life. It is a place to be empowered by the Holy Spirit’s presence in and among us. It is a place to be involved in worship planning, worship music, worship leadership, Bible study, service trips, spiritual retreats, study breaks, and other activities.
You are invited to join us on this journey--to share with us in worship, to learn about the varieties of Protestant Christian traditions, to explore your own spirituality, to practice your faith, to make new friends, to ask deep questions, to reach new understandings, to work for justice and mercy and peace--as we grow together as followers of Christ.
