Little Balkans Day

Pitt Pres Outreach Team needs your help for Little Balkans Day! 

On Saturday, Sept. 1 from 10am-3pm, Pitt Pres will be participating in Little Balkans Day on our church grounds.  In conjunction with the petting zoo a the Memorial Auditorium yard, we will be providing fun games, activities, and cookies in order to serve others and invite them to our church.  The atmosphere will be one of fun and enjoyment.    If you can help in any of the following ways, please email or call Jeff Murphy (jwm8778@hotmail.com)                      (620-238-6052) with the way you can serve, time period you can serve, and a contact email and phone.  If you can only serve part of the time, that is fine.  We would love to have your help!

  • Provide homemade cookies to the church ahead of Sept. 1 (cookies can be frozen and left at the church – please label Little Balkans)
  • Help pass out cookies and drinks.
  • Help setup and operate the kids games
  • Face painting
  • Make balloon animals (We can provide training on this, if you would like to learn!)
  • Help with set up or tear down
  • Provide music

We would love to have as many Pitt Pres members as possible at the event having fun to create a festive atmosphere.  Bring your lawn chair.

Pitt Pres Servers

THE LORD’S DINER

        Our team, Pitt Pres Servers, has been faithfully serving at The Lord’s diner every 4th Monday of the month for over 1 ½ years.  We are taking this month off from serving so that a special group of young people can have the opportunity.  It is a good time of service to help those who are hungry, lonely, or just need a place to get out of the heat or cold for a bit.  I thank the members of our team from the bottom of my heart.

 

If you would like to join us, or can serve on another day, please contact me for info.   Volunteers are always needed.

 

Our team will resume serving monthly beginning August 27th.

May God bless you all who bless others.

Youth Confirmation

Image result for youth confirmation

the Presbyterian church practices infant baptism as a sacrament, as it is a gift of grace from God to all. As children reach middle-school age, they are invited to participate in a discipleship process called Confirmation, where they learn some of the basic principles of Christian faith, particularly under Presbyterian theology. At the end of this discipleship course, the children are given the opportunity to confirm their baptism through a public statement of faith in Jesus Christ. If any of the children participating in Confirmation have not been baptized, they will also have the opportunity to be baptized during the process.
This year, our Confirmation class will be a 6-week course, to be held on Sunday afternoons at 2:00pm, beginning August 19th, plus an overnight retreat on Friday, September 28th. Then, on Sunday, September 30th, we will have a Confirmation ceremony during the service at our “Worship At The Park” in Lincoln Park. For clarity, here’s a list of dates and times:
Sunday, August 19th, 2:00pm – Session 1
Sunday, August 26th, 2:00pm – Session 2
Sunday, September 2nd, 2:00pm – Session 3
Sunday, September 9th, 2:00pm – Session 4
Sunday, September 16th, 2:00pm – Session 5
Sunday, September 23rd, 2:00pm – Session 6
Friday, September 28th, 7:00pm thru Saturday, September 29th, 3pm? – Retreat
Sunday, September 30th, time TBD – Confirmation ceremony during “Worship At The Park”
Confirmation is for students in 5th grade and up, and it is free. If you’d like for your child(ren) to participate in this year’s Confirmation class, please reply to this email to register them ASAP. If you have any other questions, or if you’d like to help lead this course, please feel free to contact me. If you know of any other parents and/or students who may be interested, please feel free to pass this along.
