State College Presbyterian Church is a warm, diverse, dynamic faith community with people of all ages and generations coming together to learn, serve and worship together.
In response to God’s unconditional love and Jesus’ example of hospitality, State College Presbyterian Church is called to be a welcoming community. We affirm all people equally, regardless of, for example, race, ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, capability, religious background, or circumstance of life. We are committed to removing barriers that separate us. As we gather in worship, fellowship and service, all are welcome.

Texting Program is LIVE!
We plan to use this new texting communication tool for occasional informational messages and anytime there is a need to get a message out to you quickly. You can also "sign the pew pad" virtually on Sunday mornings by texting "check in" during the welcome and announcement time (if you're worshiping with us from home text "check in" so we know you're watching!).
The unique phone number you will receive text messages from is: 883-234-1326. Put this number in your contacts indicating "SCPC Texting" or something you will recognize as it coming from the church. Rest assured the program we are using (Thryve) does not sell your phone number or use it for any other purpose other than our communication with you.
If you haven't yet indicated you would like to participate in this program, text "sign up" to 883-234-1326 or let us know and we'll add you to the list so you don't miss out!
Join our Church Family! Join us for our "Second Sunday Membership Opportunity" on the second Sunday of each month following the 10:15 am Worship Service
God abounds in love and mercy and welcomes us into the fellowship of the church, for in Christ, we have friends in faith who help us to grow in love and service. Here at State College Presbyterian Church, we would love to have you be a part of our ministry and to join us as a member of Christ's body.
If you are feeling led to become a member of the congregation of State College Presbyterian Church is invited to meet with the Pastor and a few elders from the Session following the worship services on the Second Sunday of each month. If you are ready to make a commitment, you will be received into membership at that time. You will then be recognized during worship the following Sunday (or the next Sunday you will be in attendance).
We meet in the Martin Room (on the main level of the church).
