During the liturgical season of Lent, Shadyside Presbyterian Church invites you to join us each Wednesday for an evening of music and reflection. These online-only evening services include the Lord’s Supper; homilies exploring the “I AM” statements of Jesus from John’s Gospel; and music offered by the Shadyside Strings, Chatham Baroque, and vocal soloists.
The Lenten vespers live webcast begins at 7:00 p.m. Click here to access the worship video and the bulletin from the live worship webcast page of the church website.
On Wednesday, February 24, the Reverend Lynn M. Portz will preach on the theme, “I Am the Bread of Life” (John 6:24-35). Music will be offered by soprano Jennifer Saunders-LaRocco, violinist Ken Johnston, cellist Elisa Kohanski, and pianist Rodrigo Ojeda.
Note: This service will incorporate an online celebration of the Sacrament of Communion, which has been approved by both the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Session of Shadyside Presbyterian Church. In order to participate at home, please read the invitation, along with suggestions for preparation.
Lenten vespers continue on Wednesdays through March 24, 2021.
