Faith at the Fireside

Learning and growing in the Word of God is an essential part of our journey of faith. Bible studies and other opportunities to grow together are offered throughout the year.

Local Missions That Impact Our Community
The Little Free Pantry
Our Board of Deacons and Mission and Evangelism Ministry Team work together to provide a "little free pantry". This pantry is located in our side parking lot. Anyone welcomed to take whatever grocery items they need from the pantry.
The Ladle and the Hearth is a soup kitchen located in the Saint John's Lutheran Church in Ambridge. Dinner is prepared and served by partner churches and organizations each week. Our congregation has been a partner church with The Ladle since 2009. We serve [at least] quarterly.
International Missions That Impact the World
Long Term Missionaries
New Bethlehem Presbyterian Church supports two long-term missionaries who serve in the Middle East. They are humble servants of the Lord sharing His gospel in an undisclosed location.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. It's mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. These simple gifts are shipepd outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. Each year, our congregation packs and ships many boxes. It's a worthwhile and rewarding mission and we have a lot of fun in the process!
