SATURDAY, April 30 | Multi-generational Service
For the weekend of the annual Pittsburgh Marathon, we will be gathering for a multi-generational potluck supper plus worship celebration on Saturday, April 30. This will replace our worship service on Sunday, May 1. As many people have experienced over the years, it is nearly impossible to get to our church building on Marathon Sunday because of traffic obstacles. This year, we will try something new! On Saturday, April 30, you and your family are invited to participate in an all-ages potluck supper at 5:30 PM and a festive multi-generational worship service starting at 6:45 PM! Here is the schedule:
5:00 PM -- Doors open! Bring your potluck contributions to the Undercroft Kitchen!
5:30 PM -- Potluck supper begins in the Undercroft Gallery!
6:15 PM -- Clean up and move to the Sanctuary!
6:30 PM -- Informal singing!
6:45-7:30 PM -- Multi-generational, family-friendly worship celebration in the Sanctuary!
Please note that there will be no religious education classes for children and youth this weekend, and please remember that there will be no worship service on Sunday May 1. You are welcome to participate in the potluck supper AND the worship celebration. You are also welcome to participate in just the potluck supper or just the worship celebration.
