Dear Congregational Family,

1. Confirmation: Sunday was a wonderful day for our confirmation students and for our entire congregation! May each of us, continue faithfully in our journey of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ! (pictures will be on our Ruthfred Facebook page this evening.)

2. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!! Last weekend was a full one for loading/unloading! Thanks to our crews for loading up the Czymbor’s truck and for unloading the Westerbur’s! (see pictures below)

3. Vicar Brian & Allie Westerbur: Brian & Allie will be arriving Thursday evening this week, so that they have some time to settle in and explore the South Hills and PA before starting the internship on June 1st. They will be in church for the morning services this Sunday.

If you would like to bring something for the parsonage (food items, paper products, etc.) you may drop it off at church in the fellowship hall. They are looking forward to enjoying the awesome foods of Pittsburgh! (Allie has food allergies to gluten, peanuts and beans.)

4. Dr. Don Bierle, founder of FaithSearch International will be teaching Sunday School on June 9th as well as an afternoon session at 12:45pm. He will be speaking about his faith journey from an atheist biology university professor to becoming a devoted follower of Jesus. Plan your schedule now, to be part of these events!

God bless you as we continue,

“Growing Together in our Faith as the Family of God”
