Children and Youth – March 2024


Update from the Director of Education Ministries -- Amy Grella - 412-801-3723


Summer Mission Trip Meeting

Back to the drawing board! Building off our desire to offer more intergenerational opportunities, we are still planning a 2024 summer mission trip for older youth AND adults. This trip is for any youth currently in sixth grade or older, including young adults/adults. Several people who expressed an interest in attending could not do the week selected by the anonymous survey sent in December. Therefore, we are meeting after

church (during coffee hour) on Sunday, March 3, in the Friendship Room to discuss date options that will work for people who want to go. If you can’t attend this meeting, but are interested, please contact Amy.


GATHER: All-church dinner potluck

The last GATHER potluck is on Sunday, March 3, at 6:00 p.m. Don’t miss

your chance to connect and share in our collective life of faith to mentor our

youth confirmands. We strongly encourage all to attend! Bring a SIMPLE

dish to share. Details can be found on the church website here.


Youth Group Mission Updates

Camp Ligonier Mission Workday

During our recent retreat at Camp Ligonier, Bower Hill youth participated in cleanup work around camp. We cleared the branches and twigs from a large oak tree felled by recent storms that was covering camp paths and trails. It was a great project for the unseasonably warm February day!


Tackle Hunger Results

Teaming up with Tacklehunger.org, Bower Hill youth launched a Souper Bowl of

Caring Food drive to join the nation-wide movement to give locally and make a

collective impact on hunger. This year’s recipient was Greater Pittsburgh Community

Food Bank. We raised over $335 and delivered three cart-loads of food! Thanks to all

who supported this effort!


Hot Metal Bridge Dinner

The youth group will be preparing the dinner on Sunday, March 17, that will be served that Tuesday, March 19, at Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community. Your help is needed… Click here to signup to help – bring the ingredients needed or help to cook and/or serve
