I Love to Tell the Story: Paul and Silas in Prison

Sunday, February 16 at 11am Contemporary Worship and Sunday, February 23 at 8:30 and 11am Traditional WorshipPastor David Streets Okay, it happened to me again. Do you remember a message I shared some time ago in which I told you that while I was standing in the lobby of PPG Paints Arena I dropped my IPhone on the granite floor? The glass did not break but the image on the screen was cockeyed. I thought I’d broken my phone but…

Sunday, February 2 at 11am Contemporary Worship and Sunday, February 9 at 8:30 and 11am Traditional Worship Isaiah 40: 21-31 Kings 5:1-14 Pastor David Streets When Toni and I moved into our very first parsonage, that is, a home provided by the church, we were excited to decorate, plant flowers and make it our own.

Hope: More Than Wishful Thinking

Hope: More Than Wishful Thinking Isaiah 40: 21-31 December 1, 2019 Fog – Have you ever observed it from your front door? Have you ever walked in it? Have you ever driven your car through it? The other night I was watching the weather report on KDKA with Ray Petlin and he turned his attention to the existing fog at that time. Instead of saying what the temperature was in Cranberry, in Moon Township, in Bethel Park and downtown Pittsburgh,…

How Good is God?

How Good is God? Psalm 100:5 November 17 and 24, 2019 Pastor David Streets If you are a parent, there was a moment in your life when you taught your child a deeply profound truth about God.

SEEING BEYOND OURSELVES

SEEING BEYOND OURSELVES Mark 12:41-44 October 6, 2019 Pastor E. David Streets Are you an easy mark with a soft heart? Are you one of those people who quickly gives when someone asks? Perhaps it’s the Girl Scouts selling cookies or the Boy Scouts selling popcorn. Or maybe it’s an athletic booster’s club from the local high school. They call your phone. You answer even though you don’t know the number. And they ask you if they can count on…
