News From Pittsburgh Presbytery
A Letter from the General Minister to Pittsburgh Presbytery
In this week's pastoral letter, Practicing Resurrection, the Rev. Dr. Sheldon W. Sorge considers the following questions: What sets the tone for every Christian gathering and outreach? Is your vision for church vitality informed more by a resuscitation mentality or by practicing resurrection?
You are cordially invited to attend the Service of Installation for the Rev. Dan M. Turis scheduled for 2:00 PM on Sunday, May 21, at First Presbyterian Church, Pittsburgh. This service is an act of the presbytery as we welcome into ministry a colleague in Christ. We urge pastors and church members, especially of neighboring churches, to attend as a way of helping a new pastor and his congregation experience the partnership we have as members of Pittsburgh Presbytery. We also invite you to lift up Dan in prayer during your morning worship as he officially begins his ministry.
We've Made a Connection!
First United Presbyterian Church, Crafton Heights, made a connection with Westminster Presbyterian Church. They were blessed to receive the book binder! Check out the details and get more information on how to make a connection with a gift of resources, services or opportunities or with a need on the Let's Get Connected! webpage.
