Our annual pledge drive for fiscal year 2019 has begun. Please prayerfully consider your financial commitment and enter it on your Faith Promise pledge card.  You can place the card in the offering plate or mail it to the office.  Thank You!


We will gather on Saturday beginning at 9 am for our Fall Clean Up day.  There are plenty of projects for everyone.  Please join us!  Lunch will be provided.  Hit "reply" to this e-mail if you plan to attend. Thanks!


There will be a congregational meeting this Sunday, October 21st immediately following worship to approve Deacons, Elders, and the Nominating Team for 2019.


Trunk or Treat is just 2 Saturdays away.  Join together on Saturday, October 27 from 11 am - 1 pm to welcome families from the community to our church.  Can you open your trunk and pass out treats?  If so, please let Marilyn Costantino know (if it rains, treats will be passed out in the Social Hall). There will also be other activities and a light lunch available in the Social Hall.


At our October Day Timers meeting, we are getting you ready for the upcoming financial year.  For 2018, there are new tax laws that will affect you and your money. Melissa Stein from Stein Wealth Advisors returns to provide this new information and some ways to keep your important items organized.   You may want to bring your spouse, neighbor and friends to this essential discussion.

If you would like, you may bring a dessert, appetizer, salad or anything that you would like to share.  Please RSVP by October 19, 2018 to Luella, 412-922-9702 or Linda Polaski, 412-921-8605 to leave a message. 

For our November Meeting, we are planning a road trip to the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA.  We are working out the details but please note that we are only taking 10-14 people.  There will be some cost involved due to stopping for lunch. For this trip, you must wear comfortable shoes, bring a jacket and be prepared for walking 1/4 mile at least and 1 mile to the new memorial. No date has been set at this time.  Further information will follow.

DayTimers meet the last Tuesday of the month from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  Please remember that DayTimers support the local Food Bank so bring a non-perishable item to donate.
