Outreach

Outreach is highly valued by members of Faith and we have a long history of service to the wider community.

Faith is very generous with its time, talent, and treasure.

We continue to seek ways to reach out in service and witness beyond our walls.

Outreach Programs

  • Many of our members volunteer to deliver meals to elderly persons in their homes (Meals on Wheel).

  • Our quilting group assembles close to 40 quilts per year to be sent to areas of the world in need.

  • We collect school supplies at the beginning of the school year to be sent to those most in need.

  • We collect food for local food pantries.

  • We collect funds for natural disaster victims throughout the world.

  • We prepare one meal per month for “The Intersection”, a soup kitchen in McKeesport.

  • We regularly collect funds for local hunger relief agencies.

  • Interest from a Charitable Endowment Fund enables us to distribute funds to many local agencies each year.

  • Our financial support to the Synod helps our congregation extend to the national and even global outreach of the Church.

  • We try to be present at community events such as the Memorial Day parade, “Village for Kids” in McKeesport, and the Christmas tree festival in McKeesport.

  • We have hosted Halloween and Christmas events for the community, blessing of pets, and summer movie nights.

Women of ELCA (WELCA)

  • WELCA is a national women’s group offering mutual support and works of service.

  • WELCA meets several times throughout the year.

  • We currently has two WELCA groups.
