Worship at Shadyside Presbyterian Church offers spiritual refreshment in a traditional liturgical setting.

Join us for an inspirational service as we gather to worship God through prayer and song, led by our pastors and musicians, including the Shadyside Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir. Sunday worship begins at 11:00 a.m., preceded by prelude music. A time of fellowship often follows worship.

The Day of Pentecost

On Sunday, May 19, Shadyside Presbyterian Church celebrates the Day of Pentecost. This liturgical observance remembers the gift of the Holy Spirit descending in a mighty rush of wind and flame to inspire the Church’s proclamation of Christ’s rising and to empower its mission and ministry to the world. (See Acts 2:1-13; see also Joel 2:28-32.) The notion of Easter as a season of fifty days ending at Pentecost is patterned after the ancient Jewish observance of seven weeks that culminated at the Festival of Weeks, which later came to be called Pentecost (“fiftieth day”) by Greek-speaking Jews.

As we mark the birth of the Church on Pentecost, we celebrate all birthdays at a gathering in the Parish Hall following the annual meetings immediately after worship. Read more about this special fellowship event and plan to join us.
