Farewell Reception for Wesley Smith
July 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
July 3 is Wesley C. Smith’s last Sunday leading in worship at Shadyside Presbyterian Church. Wesley has been serving on our church staff as our Student Assistant Pastor since September 2020. Last month, Wes graduated from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree. He also was awarded several honors: the William B. Watson Prize in Hebrew, and the Paul T. Gerrard Prize in Homiletics and Pastoral Care. We rejoice with Wes and his family in his achievements, and we thank him for all of his efforts serving our congregation during the past two years.
Following worship on Sunday, July 3, please join us for a farewell reception in the Fisher Garden, where we will enjoy cake in honor of Wesley and his family and express our appreciation. The Smiths are relocating to Kalamazoo, Michigan, where Wes will serve as a resident hospital chaplain at Bronson Methodist Hospital; his wife, Jess, has secured a high school teaching position. We pray for God’s blessings upon them during this transition as they continue to follow God’s calling in their lives.
