Shadyside Church History 101
October 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Brush Up on Your Shadyside History with Elder Tim Engleman
The church’s new roof is projected to last 130 years, about equal to the original roof we are replacing. Church histories arrive more often, but Shadyside has only produced a handful. On Sunday, October 8, the Parish Life Committee will offer a “whirlwind” review of our history, based on Liturgy: A Reflection on Shadyside Presbyterian Church, published for our 150th anniversary in 2016. Author and resident historian Elder Tim Engleman will present the one-hour program after worship that Sunday in the Hulme Room.
The history explores three characteristics found in Shadyside congregations of any era: the centrality of worship, an emphasis on education, and an active lay leadership. The book covers eleven pastorates, the Music Ministry, and Missions. A sense of each topic will be offered in the program. Attendees may recognize that the nature of challenges and opportunities we face today would be familiar to Shadysiders throughout our long ministry.
