The members and friends of Bethel Presbyterian Church generously give their time, energy, and financial gifts in a wide variety of ways in the community- in faithful response to Christ's call to "let your light shine." The congregation supports the following agencies and efforts through our financial giving and volunteer opportunities:
SHIM (South Hills Interfaith Movement) SHIM’s mission as an interfaith organization is to actively extend God’s love with dignity and respect to the people of the South Hills of Pittsburgh. SHIM provides assistance to those in need in the South Hills communities- through its food bank, job connection services, utility assistance, after school programs for children, community gardens, and more. We are proud to partner with SHIM financially, in our ongoing and special collections for the food pantry and school supply drives, and in volunteering our time in work teams and groups throughout the year. Angels' Place The mission of Angel's Place is to provide exceptional family support and quality early childhood education to help parents in need and their children become lifelong learners and create a brighter future. Bethel Presbyterian supports this mission through our financial giving, collections of paper products, Angel Tree gifts at Christmas, and donations by our Preschool and Childcare programs. Crestfield Camp & Conference Center Crestfield is a year-round Christian ministry facility of the Pittsburgh Presbytery that offers retreat facilities, programs, and special events to nurture others in their experience with God, through Jesus Christ, and in the power of the Holy Spirit. We are proud to financially support the great work of Crestfield. Open Hands Ministry Located in the inner city Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Garfield and East Liberty, Open Hand Ministries is committed to promoting justice in our communities by providing opportunities for sustainable and affordable home ownership for families in fragile situations. We are proud to financially support the work of Open Hands Ministry and hope to send work teams in the near future to help build and rehab homes through this wonderful work. East Liberty Family Health Center The mission of ELHFC is to witness to God's love, known in Jesus Christ, by empowering patients through community centered, whole-person quality health care for all, which includes those who are uninsured, underinsured, and underserved. We are proud to add our financial support to this wonderful work. Family Promise of Southwestern PA Family Promise of Southwestern Pennsylvania connects children and families experiencing homelessness with a network of local congregations and dedicated staff, all focused on providing them with shelter, meals, hospitality, and support until they are able to return to sustainable independent lives in their own homes. We have partnered with Family Promise in a variety of ways in the past, and continue to seek ways to support this ministry, both financially and in hands-on service, as its needs evolve. Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community - The Table The Table is a free community meal hosted by the Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community in Pittsburgh. We have enjoyed working with this new mission partner- providing, preparing and serving occasional community meals- meeting great people- and obeying Christ's call to "feed my lambs"! Pittsburgh Presbytery Through our financial contributions to Pittsburgh Presbytery- our gifts are added to those of other congregations in the Pittsburgh region to make an even greater impact for numerous mission efforts throughout the area.
