Who We Are
We are a dynamic community of individuals from all over the State College area and the University who come together for faith, worship and community. There are many opportunities for service and fellowship here. We urge you to find a "community of faith" where you can grow and serve.
Throughout this website, you'll find the groups currently active at State College Presbyterian Church, along with a brief history, information about our denomination, the church staff and governing bodies.
If you have any questions about our programs or would like information about how to get involved, we encourage you to contact the church office or the staff member who is designated as the contact for a particular program.
SCPC is part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) denomination, born of the Calvinist tradition. Today’s Presbyterian Church (USA) was created by the 1983 reunion of the two main branches of Presbyterians in America, separated since the Civil War. The church has over 2.9 million members, from all fifty states and Puerto Rico, united in the mission of Jesus Christ.
We do mission, locally, nationally, and globally, as guided by the General Assembly.
“In gratitude to God, empowered by the Spirit, we strive to serve Christ in our daily tasks and to live holy and joyful lives, even as we watch for God’s new heaven and new earth praying ‘Come Lord Jesus.'” —from the Brief Statement of Faith
State College Presbyterian Church has a current membership of approximately 1000 members.
