The Prayer Ministry team meets at 10:00 Tuesday mornings in the Davis Lounge. All are welcome to join them. Prayer requests are welcome.
The Homeless Ministry the team is on break during the winter months. The Pittsburgh Team continues to do outreach. If you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to the church office.

Special offering envelopes should be placed in the bulletins before the service by the ushers.
If possible, a “minute person” can speak during announcements on behalf of the special offering on the day it is taken.
In the event that a need arises that a special offering be taken (for example – Tsunami Relief Fund), it should be taken on an open 3rd Sunday. This special offering schedule can be flexible.
