The members of St. Stephen’s are involved in many ministries to the surrounding community. We brighten the lives of our neighbors through these ministries.
Mission of the month
A group of members selects a mission of the month and shares that project with the congregation. This gives members a concrete and easy way to help needy neighbors. Examples: At the start of the school year we collected school supplies for disadvantaged students. In the winter we prepared and served a meal to homeless adults and participated in a worship service with them.

Food of the Month
We collect non-perishable food items throughout the year for the food pantry of the Wilkinsburg Community Ministry. Each month we distribute a list of what items are needed.

Ministry to shut-ins
We provide support to our senior citizens, even when poor health prevents them from attending services or leaving their homes. Members of St. Stephen’s visit the shut-ins on a regular basis and take communion to them if requested. We also communicate with them throughout the year.
See the Youth Outreach page for more about our after-school program.
