This year the Education Commission is excited to bring a new approach to Children’s Sunday School called Godly Play.

We are looking for people to 1) be a Storyteller for a Sunday and 2) be a classroom Facilitator to help kids reflect on the story.More information about all of this will be coming soon, but for now, please mark September 13th on your calendar for a Godly Play training.

A group of artists and speakers headed for Ferguson, MO for the events to be held around the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death is coming to Pittsburgh Mennonite Church to hold a Justice Gathering. The troupe is building awareness and solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement. Peter Yarrow, of Peter Paul and Mary, hip-hop artists The Peace Poets, folk singer Kristen Graves, poet, speaker, and activist Te V. Smith, and singer Bishop John Selders will all be performing and bringing a message of justice to Pittsburgh. The event is free with a free will offering that will go to defray costs and toward the Ferguson bail fund that will help incarcerated activists and protesters in Ferguson who are arrested in the coming weeks.
