College Fellowship

We joyfully welcome college students into the life of our church. Our hope as a church is that students will find PPC to be a spiritual "home away from home" during the college years. We are located close to many colleges with students who come from Brown, RISD, Rhode Island College (RIC), CCRI, Johnson & Wales, and even URI.

college brunch

We have a College Fellowship group that meets for a variety of activities. On the first Sunday of each month, a college brunch is held and hosted by families from the church. Some tasty food is served up, along with good conversation. Other monthly activities are also arranged for the group. These include game nights, a trip to New York City, and service opportunities.

College Fellowship Coordinators are Amy and Joel Vander Weele.

Another important feature of the College Fellowship is that we encourage students to get involved with an on-campus ministry group such as Brown Christian Fellowship (BCF) or College Hill for Christ (CHC).

For grad students, the Grad/Med Christian Fellowship at Brown is led by our own Kathy Cooper ( and is a great group to check out!
