Pittsburgh Presbytery Ministerial Meditation
How can we know for sure that we belong to God’s chosen family? And how does this affect our relationships with each other? In this week's meditation, God’s Amazing Welcome, the Rev. Dr. Sheldon W. Sorge answers this question and more.
Freedom Rising Sunday Designated for January 20!
At their November meeting, the Executive Committee of Pittsburgh Presbytery voted to designate the Sunday before the celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to be an annual celebration of Freedom Rising Sunday, a time for congregations in our presbytery to unite in prayer, worship, witness, and giving to support Freedom Rising and our shared call to address the worsening plight of the African American male. The Freedom Rising Steering Team of Pittsburgh Presbytery has created a number of resources to assist your congregation in developing a worship service addressing the themes underpinning the ministry of Freedom Rising:

You Don't Want to Miss THE EVENT!
On Sunday, January 27, middle and high school age students (and leaders) are invited to attend "THE EVENT 2.0.” Building on the inaugural event from last year, we hope to bring together youth from across our region for an evening of worship, fun, growth, and fellowship. The model for the evening will be similar to "club time" at a retreat, mission trip, or summer camp and features games, contests, music, and a keynote speaker, the Rev. Wayne Younger, Executive Director of The Pittsburgh Project.
We will be gathering in the sanctuary space at The Pittsburgh Project which is centrally located on the north side of Pittsburgh and has ample parking. Doors open at 5:30 PM with the event starting at 6:00 PM. There is room for 300 people, which we anticipate will be enough, but we encourage you to register early to make sure your group can attend!
Information/promotional flyer and registration available online.
NOTE: More information about Continuing Education (CE) is available online; all events offer CE Units.
