Protestant Campus Ministry at RIT

The Rochester Institute of Technology has a Sunday evening protestant service.  After the service, a meal is provided by a local church.  Churches take turns serving the meal and the host church chooses its menu, which can be elaborate or simple.  The meal is a nice time for fellowship amongst the students and hosts.  Four people is about the minimum number of people required to set-up, serve, and cleanup.  Additional volunteers can also help by providing prepared food.

Services are in the Jones Chapel located in the Schmitt Interfaith Center (Building 16) on the RIT campus on Lomb Memorial Drive.  Meals are served after the worship service, downstairs in the Skalny Room, also located in the Schmitt Interfaith Center.  A small kitchen is attached to Skalny. 

When this Occurs: At least 2 Sunday evenings each school year; exact days depend on the schedule.  The host church arrives at 5:30pm, with Church Service starting at 6pm.  Meals are served after the worship service, around 6:45pm.  Cleanup is usually completed between 7:30 and 8:00pm.

Who Can Join: Anyone who wishes to share the joy of helping, you don’t have to be a cook.  If you cannot go to RIT, you can still provide some of the food. 

Who We Serve: Students of RIT
