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.

Pitt Pres 3rd and 4th of July Outreach – Thanks!

Thanks to all who helped with the Pitt Pres 3rd and 4th of July outreach at Lincoln Park.  We had a great time and connected with many in our community.  I would estimate we gave out 100 balloons, 10 dozen cookies, 100 water/lemonades, and painted 40 plus faces.  This was all free hospitality and joy given to our community.  We tried to personally invite each person who stopped to our church.  Additionally, our worship and youth pastor was able to play the 9 square game with dozens of youth in our community for about 4 hours.

Thanks again to all who helped.  We are truly leaning in to reaching others who need to know God.

Please mark your calendars for similar efforts in the future:  (@e need all the help we can get!)

Email Jeff Murphy at jwm8778@gmail.com to volunteer.

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.

Pittsburg Oxford House

Pittsburg Oxford House, a sober living for females after they transition out of the women’s recovery home, is seeking help.  The house is at max occupancy with 6 women living there and they are most in need of 3 dressers. The women’s children do visit on the weekends, but they do not have much for the children, as far as family games, DVD player, or movies.

An Oxford house for men has recently been opened for men, and are in need of a lot of home furnishings, but most priority is 2 shower curtains, microwave, new vacuum, dishes, towels, and a TV.

If you are willing to help or have further questions please contact Deedra from Pittsburg Oxford House at  620.212.6007.
