Welcome to Rutgers Protestant Campus Ministry: RUSpiritual

Living our call to be the hands & feet of Christ on the Rutgers New Brunswick Campus and the world!!


About us...

We Worship

Every Wednesday at 5pm, we worship at the First Reformed Church at 9 Bayard Street which is just of George Street in New Brunswick. (Get off at Paterson Street and it's a 2 minute walk.)

As a small group we encounter God's Word with our pastors! We read, listen, discuss, and sometimes create something based on what we hear from the Holy Spirit! We share the Lord's Supper each week.This is a contemplative time that fuels us for the week ahead! Dinner and then"RU Spiritual" component follows at 5pm.

Fellowship!

We eat together a lot! This is our chance to talk about our call...about the news of the world...about our lives! We laugh, cry, make plans. We're family in Christ.


We have plans to spend part of Spring Break in West Philadelphia working with youth.

Are You Spiritual???

Using creative arts we bring the "big spiritual questions" out to the campus! First Semester we had a "Chalk About", an interactive processing station at the New Brunswick Theological Seminary's door to commemorate the Protestant Reformation, and out annual "Labyrinth of Light" to contemplatively process gratitude. Our second semester events include "Hidden Message Rocks", a Flash Mob, and a sand mandala. These are amazing ways we can engage with all sorts of different faiths, and no faith to start conversations and encourage deep thought! 


About Us

Our background

We are supported by the Presbyterian Church (USA) the Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELCA), the United Church of Christ (UCC), the Reformed Church (RCA), and the American Baptist Church (ABCUSA)

We are open and affirming of all people...just how they are! Guided by the love demonstrated by Jesus Christ we  come together to further God's Kingdom of peace, justice, and equality. 

Our faith

As Reformed believers we trust: in a God who is unchanging and will never let us go! In a brother, teacher, and redeemer in Jesus Christ, and in a mystical, amazing, Holy Spirit that works around us and through us constantly.....but....as Reformed believers we also know that there are no firm answers, really....just more questions! God works through us, and it is our job to be constantly finding where and how that becomes realized!

Our involvement

Together, we decide how we will serve God by serving others.....in this local community, and further afield!


As brilliant as we might be as individuals, (And I'm sure you are!😜) In communities of faith, we can really move some mountains! Let's work together to make a difference!
