Outreach

At First Bethel, we put our faith in action by serving in a variety of local, regional and international outreach activities. If you have a few hours, a day, or a week to give, we have a place for you to plug in.

Appalachia Service Project (ASP)
Our mission is to build relationships and help make homes warmer, safer and drier. In 2021 we did ASP@Home the week of June 21 in our local community instead of traveling to Central Appalachia.  Projects included replacing handicap ramps, building a pavilion, collecting items for UMCOR kits, a SHIM food drive, helping with the Daily Bread ministry on the Northside, working at the Eastbrook Mission Barn, and several other general maintenance projects around our church and parsonage properties.  We’re already looking forward to our next trip in 2022!

Daily Bread
Prepare and serve meals to the homeless on the North Side of Pittsburgh

Meal Train
A home-cooked meal delivered to a Church Member can satisfy and sustain during a either a challenging or celebratory time in life

Mission Barn
Connect with other United Methodists to pack flood buckets, backpacks for school children, or provide other necessities to those in need

Prayer Quilts
Help to sew, cut out fabric squares, or design quilts that are tangible symbols of our prayers

Shepherds
Visit with our homebound members and deliver small tokens of our love to those that cannot join us in church

South Hills Interfaith Movement
Bring your non-perishable food donations to church and we’ll get them to SHIM to help our neighbors that are experiencing food insecurity.
