News From Pittsburgh Presbytery
Does Christian Hope Disappoint?
Does hope guarantee we won't struggle or suffer? Is Christian hope wishful thinking? How does hope in Jesus steer our next steps when taking on bold new initiatives? The Rev. Dr. Sheldon W. Sorge, General Minister to Pittsburgh Presbytery, answers these questions and more in today's meditation, Hope That Never Disappoints.

Is Your Child Protection Clearance Due to Expire?
Under Pennsylvania law, clearances required for those who work or volunteer with children are valid for 60 months. Since this law went into effect in January 2015, those clearances obtained around that time will expire on their five-year anniversary. Congregations are urged to review their files and notify those individuals whose clearances must be renewed. Click here for information and forms.
