Worship occurs on-site and online on Sundays at 11:00 a.m.

On Sunday, June 5, 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.

Also on Sunday, June 5, as we celebrate Pentecost, we will receive our newest confirmands. The entire congregation is invited and encouraged to attend worship and welcome these young people as they become members of our church.

Note: Our service of worship at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 5, will incorporate a celebration of the Sacrament of Communion, both on-site and online. Please read the invitation, which explains options for those joining us on-site and suggestions for preparation for those joining us at home.
