We show our love for God by serving those in need within our community and throughout the world. We volunteer to help others, to experience new things, to meet new people and develop relationships.

We always welcome volunteers to: usher, sing in the choir, help with food and hospitality, or help with children and youth programs. Do what you are good at and what you love to do. To learn more and to find the opportunity that fulfills your need for involvement and commitment, please contact Jan Baumann, volunteer coordinator, at baumann@westminster-church.org or 412-835-6630x205.

Grow Living Stones

Work together with other Westminster volunteers at St. Catherine of Siena Church in Beechview, 1810 Belasco Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15216.

Job: Help with setup and serving food - there is a job for everyone.

Commitment: Sunday, January 30, 3:00 p.m. until approximately 5:30 p.m. Limit of 8 volunteers, so sign up early.

Skills Needed: Everyone can participate.

As Christ’s living stones, bound together in faith, we share His love by feeding those in need. (see 1 Peter 2:4-8)

"Living Stones exists to help individuals who are struggling to meet their basic human needs. We are an independent group of volunteers responding to God’s call to feed the less fortunate by providing meals, without charge or discrimination, to those desiring food and fellowship.

Living Stones helps our neighbors in need. Some are children. Some are parents. Some are elderly. Some are disabled. They may be people who lost their jobs, became ill or disabled, or were faced with a crisis. They don’t want to be there, but for some reason, they’re struggling to feed themselves and, oftentimes, their families. Whether for the short- or long-term, they need help. Living Stones exists to give them a little of that help. Will you help us help them?"

Rise Against Hunger - Save the Date

Save the date…Saturday, February 26…here at Westminster.

Six million children under the age of five die every year because of hunger.

Job: Package meal pouches in assembly line fashion; combine rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets.

Skills Needed: There is a job for everyone ages 4 to 104.

We need 240 volunteers to staff the assembly-line shifts for this one day. Invite friends, neighbors, and co-workers. In addition to providing a much needed meal to 40,000 children, it will be an opportunity for fun and fellowship for everyone.

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” Mother Theresa

QuicKit Mission Project

Support Bags for Those Experiencing Homelessness

Have you ever come across a homeless individual in need and not had any way to help?

QuicKits are bags, designed by the youth of Westminster, filled with essential items like deoderant, water, a toothbrush, and more, put together in a reusable bag.

Fully assembled kits are available to you in the Narthex. Take one to keep in your car to hand out when you cross paths with someone in need. We hope to keep the project running so we also ask that you consider replenishing the bin with fully completed kits for others to pass out.

More information on the project and what is included in the bags can be found in our YouTube video below.
