On Sunday mornings, men and women of all ages, including college students, are invited to gather at 9:30 a.m. to participate in one of several studies offered by Shadyside Presbyterian Church's Adult Ministries:

  • Campus Ministry "Donut Society"
    College students are invited to the "Donut Society" for free donuts, coffee, and Scripture study before worship. (Note: Donut Society will resume on Sunday, January 17, 2016.)
  • The Bible and Theology
    Examine the Old and New Testament texts that inform theological ideas and how the church has formulated these into doctrine, currently studying "What Are Sacraments?" and "What Is Kingdom?"
  • Topical Book Study
    Read and discuss recent books on Christianity, faith, and life.  From January 3 through February 7, read Lillian Lillian Daniel’s When “Spiritual but Not Religious” Is Not Enough: Seeing God in Surprising Places, Even the Church. Read more.
