Packing Bagged Lunches for the Neighborhood Resilience
Saturday, February 4, 8:30am - 11am in the Undercroft
Come help us support the ministry of the Neighborhood Resilience
Help St. John's Lutheran Church provide period products to clients of the St. John's Free Fridge Pantry! Drop off packages of pads and tampons (any brand, any size) to the specially marked bin in St. Paul's Undercroft. Then, volunteers will repack them, and provide them to the food pantry for distribution. Contact the Rev. Erin Morey [email protected] 412-531-7153 ext. 13 with any questions.
Neighborhood Resilience Project
Neighborhood Resilience Project is a partner ministry of St. Paul's, whose focus is on trauma-informed community development in Pittsburgh. We made a monthly commitment to provide 120 brown-bag lunches for kids on the first Saturday of every month in 2022. You can sign up here as an individual, a family, or a small group of people. If you would like to participate in this new ministry, email Erin. We are working on having more service opportunities with Neighborhood Resilience Project in the near future!
Collecting for Trinity Walk-In Ministry
Often, people who visit the Walk-in Ministry are living outside in camps or are making do in temporary living arrangements, and can use an extra blanket. We take donated blankets. The blankets can be used as long as they are cleaned and in good condition. Please donate only twin size or larger (not “throws”). Please put donated blankets in the marked bin in the Undercroft. Thank you for so generously supporting the mission of the Walk-in Ministry at Trinity.
Food Pantry Sunday
St. Paul’s collects food and monetary contributions to support the South Hills Food Pantry the first Sunday of the month. Please remember to bring your nonperishable food contributions to the service of your choice. All canned, jarred (plastic, please) and boxed items are appreciated. You can also donate financially to support the Food Pantry by clicking here. At the 8:45am and 10:45am services, you will be invited to bring your donation forward during the service. Contributions may also be placed in the food box in the Undercroft at any time.
The flowers on the altar of St. Paul's are given in memory of loved ones, in celebration for an anniversary or a birth, or for any occasion for which we give thanks to God. The flowers are funded weekly and during festive seasons such as Christmas and Easter. After the last service they are distributed to the ill, the shut-ins, those in need, and parishioners who deserve recognition in the life and work of St. Paul’s. The proceeds from the flowers are used to fund all the Altar Guild expenses including wafers, wine, linens, candles, and seasonal decorations. For more information about how to donate or to volunteer to deliver flowers, email the church office or (412)531-7153x10.
