Our theme for Fall 2021 is
"Stepping Out of Our Comfort Zone"
October 10, 2021 ~ LGBTQIA+ Experiences and Faith
In honor of National Coming Out Day, our church community will devote some much-needed space to discussing LGBTQIA+ experiences with faith. This session will be led by Collin Wildridge, Program Coordinator for Penn State's Center for Spiritual and Ethical Development, who has dedicated their professional life to community building, community healing, and LGBTQIA+ spirituality and meaning.
October 17, 2021~ The Dead Sea Scolls and the Bible - Findings and Forgeries
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the 1940s and 50s gives us unprecedented insight into the development of scripture. Our very own Daniel Falk, who is Head of the Department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies at Penn State, will discuss some more recent findings from these scrolls, including biblical fragments in the Cave of Horrors and forgeries purchased by the Museum of the Bible.
October 24 offering is with Jason Dauer in Westminster Hall - more information coming soon
October 31, 2021~ Creation Care - Now More Than Ever
After decades of warning signs, the consequences of climate change are clearer than ever, and the importance of combating it is more critical than ever. Please come and learn more about practical things we can all do to care for God's creation and address climate change. This session will be led by Greg Williams of PA Interfaith Power and Light, who is known for organizing tree planting and promoting biodiversity.
October 31, 2021 ~ A Space for Hekima Place
Hekima Place is a home that supports orphans and vulnerable girls in Kenya. Back in July of 2019, 19 of our own SCPC members traveled to Kenya to serve there, and up to 14 will return next summer. Kate Fletcher, who founded Hekima Place in 2005 and has worked tirelessly to maintain the home, will be right here at State College Presbyterian to tell us about this wonderful endeavor.
