P.O.L.O. ~ Parents of Little Ones
POLO is a fellowship group for parents with young children (at least one child under the age of 6). We gather monthly on the first Tuesday during the program year (October- May) for dinner out at a nearby restaurant, and for a potluck bbq during the summer months with “POLO in the Park”. There are also monthly “moms only” and “dads only” activities. Periodic retreats are also held. If you are a parent of a little one(s) and are seeking fellowship opportunities with other parents of little ones, this is the program for you!
Contact Pastor Mike Ozaki (951-532-5105) with any questions.
Young at Heart (adults 55+)
Young at Heart is a fellowship group for persons age 55 and older. The group meets monthly, usually on the 2nd Friday of the month, for a pot-luck dinner followed by a program. All who are “young at heart” are invited. Just bring a covered dish and your own table service and enjoy an evening of fellowship. It is a great way to meet other church members and make new friends.

Dinner at Centre House
Would you like to make a difference for some folks who would benefit from your help? Here is a great opportunity for you: on the 2nd Friday of each month, someone (or a group) from SCPC prepares and shares a meal with the residents of Centre House.
Centre House provides shelter and food to folks who are experiencing homelessness or in crisis, but also guidance to reach a more stable housing future. Residents must be over the age of 18 unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, or legally emancipated. The Centre House shelter is located at 217 East Nittany Avenue and open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and is staffed 24 hours a day. There is no charge to stay at Centre House.
Volunteers are asked to arrive at around 5:00 pm on the assigned Friday with all of the makings to prepare a meal. A phone call by the volunteer to Centre House on the day before will provide information about the number of residents to expect as well as any dietary restrictions that may exist. The volunteer(s) will involve the residents (who are required to participate as part of the conditions of their residency) in the food preparation and cooking as well as setting the table, etc. Everyone then sits down and enjoys the meal together. The residents are responsible for cleaning up after the meal. The typical time commitment for volunteers is approximately 2 hours. The kitchen at Centre House is fully stocked with pots, pans, cooking and food prep utensils as well as some basic ingredients like oil, butter, salt & pepper, etc.
If you, you and your family, you and some group of friends/relatives would like to volunteer to prepare/share a meal, please contact Mike Cullin at: 814-571-9157.
