Our Mission & Vision

The mission of the Scalp Level Church of the Brethren is linking young and old together in service to Christ and one another.

The Scalp Level Church of the Brethren is founded upon the faith that there is but one God who is a personal Father God who in Holy love creates, sustains and orders all.

We confess Jesus Christ as the Lord of the church and of all life.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is at work in the hearts and minds of believers, creating and sustaining the church through the gospel, giving guidance and comfort, and uniting believers with their Lord and one another.

Pastor Ronald St. Clair,

 Our mission statement is “Linking Young and Old Together in Service to Christ and to One Another.”  Being in the middle of a retirement community, there are many opportunities here for outreach to senior citizens.  There are also many opportunities here for ministry with those of younger generations.  This linking together of young and old to serve Christ and one another is evident in such things as blended worship services, incorporating both traditional and contemporary music, and Wednesday Night Fellowship times, which bring older and younger people together for fellowship.  As we share and serve those of other generations we are blessings to one another and draw closer to our Lord and Savior.  Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it to the full” (John 10:10).  Through faith in Jesus Christ we can experience God’s love and power to live a new live.  That new life in Christ is lived out through the fellowship of the church.  If you have no church family, we invite you to worship and serve with us.     

Mark Murchie, Youth Director

My name is Mark Murchie and I am the Combined Youth Director for Rummel COB, Scalp Level COB, and Windber COB. The youth from the three churches join together to form one youth group. Any youth in grades 6-12 are welcome and invited to be a part of our activities. I always encourage the youth to bring their friends and would love to see more youth at our activities. Through our activities, we seek to show what it means to have a relationship with Jesus Christ, how to have good fun, and how to love and serve others like Jesus did. The purpose of our youth group is to lead youth to salvation in Jesus Christ and for each youth to be guided and mentored in their relationship with Jesus as they become the men and women God has created them to be.
