This Sunday, May 6th, is the date of the Pittsburgh Marathon. Because Pittsburgh’s roads will be taken over by runners for most of the morning, you may have to plan around this in order to get to Church. Upper Room will still have its regularly scheduled 11:00am worship service. Please read ahead about the planned road closures and look ahead at the course map to plan a route for your morning’s travels. Also, if you or anyone you know is running, there will be a “Blessing of the Runners” prayer service at First Presbyterian Church at 320 6th Ave. at 6:00am. Mike and Chris will help lead this service.
For those who are able to make it, we will have a guest preacher at Upper Room this week: The Rev. Karen Sloan, leader of An Ordered Life and spouse of Upper Room’s own Dave Carlton. Sunday school this week will take place at 9:30, and will be the first class in the May series on finances. Dave Carlton will lead a discussion of the idolatry of money and the “Two Masters” passage from Matthew 6.
