Bible Reading Marathon at Hill Top United Methodist Church


The Grand Re-Opening for Hill Top UMC is coming right up on Sunday, November 22nd at 11:00 am! That’s why we’re inviting members and friends of the churches of the South Hills Partnership to help us welcome the congregation back to its building in style by joining together in a Bible-reading marathon in the newly-renovated Hill Top sanctuary! 

That’s right, our plan is to read the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation out loud at the pulpit, in shifts, beginning Sunday, November 15th, and ending during worship on the 22nd. Sounds ambitious, right? That’s why we need you! Each day of the week there will be shifts of roughly 25-30 minutes available for folks to sign up and take turns reading. Shifts will go from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm every day that week. We’re asking you prayerfully to consider signing up for a reading shift (or two or three!) throughout the week as a way of blessing the new sanctuary and welcoming the Spirit’s presence into the new building through the public reading of God’s Word! After all, “unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain” (Psalm 127:1).   

Sign-ups for the Bible reading will be at the Hill Top and Castle Shannon churches on Oct. 25th, and at Fairhaven, Spencer, Carnegie and Crafton the following Sundays.

Please contact Pastor Matt for more information or to sign up directly for times that work for you at (412) 532-6157 or Let’s rally around our Hill Top congregation in this exciting time and make this a marathon to remember!
