Monroeville United Methodist Church will continue a tradition by hosting an outdoor morning service in June.

UMC's Betty Henderson said the church began conducting an outdoor service at Boyce Park more than 40 years ago. This is the second year the church will hold its 9 a.m. service at Monroeville Community Park West's pavilion No. 3, 2399 Tilbrook Road.

The outdoor service will continue through the first weekend in September. The first service was scheduled for June 3.

“The service features lively music, energetic preaching and great fellowship offered in the beauty of an outdoor setting,” a news release stated. “This is a more informal worship time, so bring your blanket or lawn chair to sit on and dress casually.”

If it rains, the service will move indoors to 219 Center Road. The church will hold an additional service at 11 a.m. there. For more information call 412-372-7474 or visit the website at

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
