Learn & Grow

Shadyside Presbyterian Church has always had a strong history of educating people of all ages in our faith. In fact, the church began as an extension Sunday school for East Liberty Presbyterian Church.


With its roots in Christian learning, Shadyside Presbyterian Church clearly has never forgotten its origins, as it continues an emphasis on education – from the littlest among us to the most mature. For over half a century, the Shadyside Presbyterian Church Nursery School has been teaching pre-schoolers and introducing them to the joys of learning.

Of course, we know the joys of learning should be lifelong.  Shadyside Presbyterian Church offers Christian education for all ages, at each key level of development through adulthood.  While our Children’s Ministry nurtures faith in the youngest among us, our Family Ministry supports their adults in their unique needs through the joys and challenges of parenthood. This support continues through our Youth Ministry, which embraces students in grades 6 through 12. Shadyside’s Campus Ministry engages undergraduate students at several nearby colleges and universities, and our Young Adult and Graduate Student Ministries focus on adults between the ages of 22 and 35+ years old. Men and women of any and all ages are invited to participate in the many opportunities offered for Adult Christian Education — from Bible studies and topical book studies on Sunday mornings, to small group studies that meet at various times and places throughout the week.

Come grow in faith along with us!
