Freedom Rising Sunday on 1/17/21!
Annually the Sunday before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is celebrated as 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. Please visit our Freedom Rising Pilot Project page to access all the resources needed to create the service, as well as online giving opportunities! We also ask our congregations to receive a special offering to support Freedom Rising during the service. The collection can be sent to:

We hope that you will join us in this important celebration!
