Worship on Marathon Sunday
May 1 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
On Sunday, May 1, worship occurs at 4:00 p.m. as Marathon Weekend concludes. Due to Shadyside Presbyterian Church’s location within the marathon route, our service of worship moves from the morning to the afternoon, when Wesley C. Smith, Student Assistant Pastor, will preach. The service will be held in the Sanctuary and will include Communion. As a fitting conclusion to Marathon Weekend, this will serve as a reminder that acts of running, giving, and encouraging are all done in worship. (There will be no service of worship at 11:00 a.m., and Christian Education classes will not be held on-site at 9:45 a.m.; the Adult Christian Education study will meet via Zoom only, with an archival video recording available for playback afterward. Nursery care will be available during the 4:00 p.m. service.) Following the service in the Sanctuary, all are invited to join us for an outdoor time of fellowship.
Communion will be served in a manner similar to our midweek services. Please read the invitation on our website.
