Faith and Work group

“The faith and work” group is a study on leadership, envisioning your with-God life at work. We will reflect on new and classic readings on what the gospel has to say about work as a place to express our deepest desires in service of one another.

We will meet on alternate Fridays beginning April 12 at 7:30AM first session at Heather Jennings house (6955 Thomas Blvd) and 3 Saturday mornings for longer events. Anyone can join anytime.

Open Hand Ministries / Open Door – Work Nights

Starting Thursday, April 4th

As many of you are aware OHM is a mission partner of the OD and our primary interaction has been through the First Saturday Workday program.  However, several members of the congregation have expressed the desire to get more involved.  Therefore, starting Thursday, April 4th we will be beginning a series of a series of short term – “project based” initiatives.  If you would like to participate or have any additional questions please contact Kevin Bell (kmb7@pitt.edu).


What: Weekly work nights with OHM

When: Thursday(s) – 5:30PM – 7:30PM**

Where: 514 North Sheridan Avenue

1st Project: Drywall Hanging

**The OHM work nights are intentionally planned to coordinate with the GCF work nights as another step to reinforce their collaborative ministry.  Therefore, work will stop in time to join GCF for sunset prayer time (7:48 PM)-the end time will obviously get later as we move towards summer.
