Announcements

  • One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) offering will be received through today Easter Sunday, April 16.  The Evangelism and Mission Committee has decided to donate our offerings to PDA (Presbyterian Disaster Assistance).  This is part of PCUSA has been very active both domestically and internationally when disasters strike.  In the past, members of our church family have seen PDA in action when they volunteered and traveled to the gulf coast after hurricane Katrina hit.  They saw families fed and homes clean out of mud and rebuilding begun, all thanks to donations from churches like ours.  This year, PDA is directing funds to national disasters:  Southern tornadoes, Tennessee wildfires, Gulf Coast flooding (2016), West Virginia's floods, wildfires (summer 2016) and the Flint water crisis.  Thank you for supporting God's work after disasters.

  • The church offices will be closed on Tuesday, April 18.  The offices will reopen on Thursday, April 20.  In case of an emergency, contact Pastor Nathan 724-651-5333.

  • The deadline to submit information for the May 2017 newsletter is next Sunday, April 23.  The April 2017 newsletter will be passed out on Sunday, April 30.

  • We have launched our Raise the Roof Campaign to replace the roof on the church.  Pledge cards are available on the narthex table.  Building Fund/Raise the Roof envelopes are available in the pews.

  • Sunday, April 30, our church will celebrate Friendship Sunday.  This is a great opportunity to invite family and friends who either do not already attend church or who are looking for a church to visit Bessemer Presbyterian Church.  It is also a good opportunity to invite others in the community to worship with us.  Worship at 10:45 AM.  Following worship a time of fellowship and also a light luncheon will be served.
