Miryam's House Women's Shelter Meals
Dinners for Miryam House for Women are provided on a regular basis by Bethlehem's serving teams. Members prepare and deliver the evening meal to the women staying at the Miryam's House. Miryam's House is a program for homeless women and those at risk of homelessness.
New Start Furniture Ministry
Bethlehem's furniture ministry helps others get a "New Start." Working with a variety of local outreach organizations who help identify those who could use assistance, we collect gently used furniture and other household items to give to others in need throughout our local community. New Start can always use volunteers to help pick up and deliver items. Members can also support New Start with furniture donations and/or monetary gifts to pay for storage and purchase items not received through donations.
Local news station 90.5 WESA recently highlighted New Start.
North Hills Community Outreach Food Bank
Help local families who are struggling with not having enough food to eat. We collect donations of food and personal care items to give to the North Hills Community Outreach to be distributed to members of our community. Donations can be placed in the bin by the entrance doors to Bethlehem at any time. NHCO is an interfaith organization addressing the needs of people in crisis, hardship and poverty.
Northside Common Ministries
Bethlehem's serving teams are responsible for providing evening meals on the second and fourth Friday of each month. We have four teams who prepare, deliver, and serve the food for which the men are most grateful. Northside Common Ministries provides hope for the homeless, treating the men with dignity and compassion, as well as a safe place to sleep at the end of a long day on the streets. In addition, NCM provides laundry facilities, warm clothing and shoes, as well as resources for the men to prepare resumes.
The Blessing Box
Located in the front corner of the church near Mt. Royal, the Blessing Box is for those in need of food. The Ladies in Fellowship Together (LIFT) group and others stock the box to ensure that our community can help themselves to what they may need. Anyone is invited to "Take what you need, leave what you can," and to be blessed!
Trinity Northside Children's Christmas Gifts Ministry
Each year the members of Bethlehem provide Christmas gifts to needy children in the Pittsburgh area. A few weeks prior to Christmas, you can pick up a gift slip before or after worship. The slip will tell you the recipient's name, age and gender and an item that they are hoping for. On the date specified, return the wrapped gift with the slip secured to the outside of the present. We will ensure that your gift gets delivered.
