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.

Christmas Gift Drive

Welcome to our 2019 Westminster Bair Foundation Gift Drive! For the past nine years, Westminster has partnered with the Bair Foundation to provide foster children in the local Pittsburgh area with Christmas gifts.

This year, some of the situations we support include:

• A grandmother who has taken in six of her grandchildren
• A 14 year old who has a child of her own
• Several group home teens who will receive nothing except the items we provide

Rise Against Hunger
