Reformation Sunday Worship
October 29, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
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 our prayers, songs, and demonstrated concerns for each other. Sunday worship begins at 11:00 a.m., preceded by prelude music.
Presbyterians celebrate the tradition that grounds their faith on Reformation Sunday. It is always the last Sunday in October, marking the occasion in 1517 when Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany. This year, Presbyterians commemorate the 500th anniversary of Luther’s 95 Theses. The theses, which criticized the sale of indulgences by church officials, are considered the opening salvo in the Protestant Reformation — a movement that emphasized individual relationships with God and salvation through faith alone.
Children’s Bible Presentation
During worship on Sunday, October 29, a number of our young people will receive Bibles as gifts from Shadyside Presbyterian Church. If you know of a child in first through fourth grades in our congregation who has not received this wonderful gift, please contact Ellen Allston, Director of Christian Education for Children’s Ministry. The “Deep Blue Kids Bible” (Common English Translation) presented to these children is the same Bible used in our elementary Christian education classes.

Stewardship Celebration Sunday and Chili After Church
Also, our focus on stewardship culminates on Stewardship Celebration Sunday, October 29. Pledge cards and brochures have been mailed to members; additional pledge cards are available in the pews, Narthex, and Sharp Atrium. Please prayerfully consider your pledge commitment and joyfully return your pledge card before October 29. We greatly appreciate the many pledge forms that have already been received. Following worship on Sunday, October 29, you are invited to join us for our “Chili After Church” fellowship event. Learn more about “Chili After Church.”
