A Bedrock of Faith: Presbyterian Pioneers in Western Pennsylvania
To coincide with the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church annual meeting in Pittsburgh, the History Center is hosting a new exhibit created by the Presbyterian History Committee of the Pittsburgh Presbytery.
A Bedrock of Faith: Presbyterian Pioneers in Western Pennsylvania explores 10 Presbyterian churches in the region, including Sewickley Presbyterian, Beulah, Bethel, Grace, First, Shadyside, Middle, Chartiers Hill, and Service, as well as Hicks Chapel at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. The exhibit also features four cases with religious objects and an accompanying video.
The exhibit will open on July 2 with a lecture from 7-9:00 p.m. featuring local historian and Scots-Irish expert Dr. Peter Gilmore. Following Dr. Gilmore's address, a panel of Presbyterian history experts will field questions from the audience. The cost to attend the lecture is $10.
Visitors can register for the lecture by emailing Cathy Nelson or by calling her at 412-323-1400 X 315. Tickets can also be purchased the night of the lecture.
