Pastor’s Reflection for April 10, 2016

Conf at Session


Beloved Saints of God,

Welcome to worship.  It is good to have you here at Pittsburg Presbyterian Church.  This is an especially good day because we are receiving 14 children of this congregation into full membership.  Today they confirm the promises made on their behalf during their respective baptisms.  They are here to say, in their own words, what they believe.  They desire to be active members of this congregation and as a church we could not be happier. It is a good day in deed.


Another reason for our joy today is that we get to celebrate the ministry of Julie Bernhardt.   After years of ministry on staff here at Pitt Pres, Julie has taken another job and is no longer on staff here.  She has nurtured and tutored these confirmands, preparing them for today.  We owe Julie a debt of great gratitude for seeing this work through.  While she is no longer on staff, Julie continues to be active in this church’s ministry and mission.  The only difference is that Julie is no longer on staff.  We thank you for your ministry as a staff member, Julie.  We look forward to what good works God has ordained for us to do together yet (Ephesians 2:10).

This is the day that the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

I invite you to settle in for a meaningful time of worship.  Today’s sermon will be preached by our 14 confirmands through their respective statement of faith.  May their articulation of their faith inspire us all to think about how our faith shapes our lives.


Come, let us worship God,

K.O. Noonoo

April Column from The Rev. Susan Rosenbaum, Pastoral Presbyter of John Calvin Presbytery


Susan R2

April showers bring May flowers. That is a saying I heard growing up in Springfield, MO. I believe it was my parents way of telling me that rain is essential if we are to enjoy the beauty of this earth. This is a beautiful time of the year. I love the spring blossoms on trees and the flowers that sprout from our bulbs that we diligently plant in the fall. Spring makes me think about all the good things that happen in the midst of waiting. We plant our bulbs in the fall and wait over the winter to see the results. We plant flowering trees and anxiously await the beauty the will show once the weather begins to warm up. We plant seeds of faith in the hearts of friends, family and others and watch for signs of a growing relationship with God. As we notice spring unfolding all around us, I encourage you to also look for unfolding faith, not just in others, but in your own hearts as well. Unlike the flowers of spring, the beauty of a soul does not fade with time, but has the opportunity to be more beautiful as we strengthen our relationship with God. In the midst of the glory of spring, don’t forget to tend the gardens of your heart and the hearts of others by planting and nurturing seeds of faith and then enjoy the beauty of a well nourished soul.

My name is Laura McCormack. I am trying to serve as your church secretary. No one can replace Debra Bevins. I would like to thank all of you for your kindness I’ve already been shown during my attempt to transfer ALL of Debra’s knowledge from her brain to mine! I am so happy to be here.  My last position was working for Mosaic as the receptionist and I enjoyed that so much because they work with people with intellectual disabilities. I was so dismayed when I found out there was no room in the budget for me and I would no longer be able to support people who are doing God’s work on Earth. I interviewed with several companies and there was just not a fit. I was certain it was the “God Connection”. So…I prayed and worried..prayed..and worried..then when I felt it just wasn’t working, He took over! I am. Again I feel lucky to be supporting those that do God’s work!

For the personal side, I am Debra’s age (we won’t get into what that is!). In fact we were in the same graduating class just different schools. She went to Southeast High School and I went to PHS. I live in Frontenac and have 3 daughters, 3 sons in law and 6 grandsons, one of which lives with me, and 3 granddaughters. I love going to their basketball, volleyball and football games! Also living with me, are my two dogs Emma and Sissy..and my kitty named Stinkybob….

If I can be of any service to any of you , please don’t hesitate to let me know..!

Thank you again!
