Journeys of Faith (Jan 2024)

January 7 – 28, 2024

9:30 a.m. | Assembly Room (breakfast snacks available at 9:15 a.m.)

Everyone experiences twists and turns in life, and God accompanies us along the way.

Our tradition of intergenerational classes in the month of January returns. Middle School, High School, and Adults of all ages are invited to light breakfast with members of our community as they share stories of God’s faithfulness in their lives.

Audio recordings will be posted below each class description.

January 14 | Scott Harmon

Scott currently works in Sales for Church & Dwight and works closely with Target (or Tarzhay, as some know it). He has a Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering from West Point and an MBA from Harvard. Scott held general management positions with the United States Army as the commander of a US Army Bomb Disposal company. He lives with his wife and has three grown daughters, most of whom are much happier that he now works on a computer rather than live explosives. Throughout the year, you may have seen Scott helping lead Loaves & Fishes, serving with youth at Appalachia Service Project, or starring in the recent Christmas Pageant.

January 28 | Hanna Reichel

Hanna grew up in a Lutheran family and spent their formative years in Germany, Venezuela, and Argentina. They pursued studies in theology and economics in Bonn, Beirut, and Heidelberg, culminating in a PhD dissertation on Karl Barth as a contextual theologian. Side-tracked from ordination, they taught in Heidelberg and Halle-Wittenberg before being appointed Associate Professor of Reformed Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary in 2018. In their academic work, they try to bring theological reflection together with insights from queer theory and other contemporary fields of critical inquiry. When not teaching, reading, or writing, Hanna Reichel loves to run, hike, or play boardgames. A member of Hopewell Presbyterian Church, Reichel lives with a spouse, two kids, and a dog in Hopewell.
