Welcome to the United Presbyterian Church in Ingram, PA
Bringing Christ to the People and the People to Christ
Interested in learning more about us?
We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. with a 119-year history of commitment to Christ and service to our community. We enjoy a family-like atmosphere when we join together for worship or fellowship, and we participate in various activities like small group Bible studies, children's ministries, service activities, and seasonal dinners - but, most importantly, we share in the Spirit of God!
There's more to say, but, instead, we invite you to come find out for yourself! Come worship with us on Sunday morning (11:00am) and experience the love and presence of God in this community!
May God bless you and keep you now and always.
About Reverend Taylor
Bonnie grew up in the small town of Puyallup, Washington. After high school, she received a BA in psychology and social services from The Evergreen State College in WA and worked in social services with senior citizens and homeless youth. Two years later, she received a full scholarship to attend Princeton Theological Seminary and began studies in their M. Div program. She completed her degree at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
Bonnie earned her Professional Coaching Certification through New Ventures West In San Francisco where she maintained a whole life Integral Coaching and Spiritual Direction practice for over 10 years. She has also served on six church staffs located across the country. Bonnie is a published author and most recently has served as Resident Fellow Chaplain in the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System.
God’s Grace. Bonnie is humble about her ability to be God’s spokesperson. She has discovered that if she can set her own judgments aside and remember that Jesus is God, incredible possibilities and opportunities open up! She says, “ I don’t have to have all the answers – for me or for you. You don’t have to comply with what I think. God’s grace is sufficient for all of us, and if we listen and remember that we are not God, the Holy Spirit will show us another creative way that just might be greater than anything we could have come up with alone.”
Family. Bonnie met her husband and soul mate, Chris while at Princeton Seminary. Chris is the head of staff at Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church. Bonnie enjoys being a loving cheerleader for her 3 married adult children, Christopher, Jonathan and Anna, and their growing families.
