Becoming a Member

Persons may enter into active church membership by profession of faith, reaffirmation of faith in Jesus Christ, or transfer of certificate from some other church.

College students especially may wish to consider becoming affiliate members, an option which allows them to remain a member of their “home” churches in another city or state while making Shadyside their “home away from home.” Of course, nonmembers are always welcome to participate in the life and worship of this church.

If you are interested in joining Shadyside Presbyterian Church, please call the church office at 412.682.4300 to register for the next Inquirers’ Class or to speak to the Reverend Lynn M. Portz, Associate Pastor for Parish Life. To discover the many ways you can get involved in the life of Shadyside Presbyterian Church (whether or not you have officially joined), visit our online calendar for church-wide fellowship events, educational offerings, mission opportunities, and services of worship.
