Youth Ministry Visioning Listening Sessions
Since SCPC is currently experiencing a change in youth leadership, we feel this is a good time to look into the future of our Youth (Middle and Sr High) Ministry programs.
With these questions in mind, the Youth Ministry Visioning Committee has been asked to gather information from youth, parents and the entire congregation to better understand the needs and desires of this important ministry. We will be offering “listening” sessions and are inviting all of you to join us as we look forward.
Please join us - click here to use the Sign Up Genius or call the office at 814-238-2422 to let us know when you can attend.
Join our Church Family! Join us for our "Second Sunday Membership Opportunity" on Sunday, October 10 Immediately Following Worship
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).
