Every Saturday evening during the school year, our church gym is open from 4-8 pm for children and youth ages 8-18 for recreation, video games, snack, and a movie followed by Christian life skills lessons.
JOSEPH'S BASKETBALL AND BIBLE CAMP
Every summer the church gym is open from 6-11 pm for ten weeks on Saturday evening for the youth of the community for basketball games and Bible study. This is a critical time for the youth of Wilkinsburg who have nowhere else to gather on Saturday nights where they can be safe and be nurtured in Christian love and care.
THE SANCTUARY PROJECT
Our church is honored to serve as the coordinators for The Sanctuary Project which gathers churches and social service agencies together to work on ending youth violence in Wilkinsburg. In the last four years, we have created a chaplain’s ministry, and Art and Talent Show for Peace, a Community Block Party for Peace, a summer jobs program and an emergency medical training.
Our church family makes every effort to send children from first to twelfth grade for a week long camp sponsored by our regional statewide church. These weeklong camps in the beauty of the Laurel Highlands offer our youth an opportunity to grow in the faith and to make lifelong friends with other Christian youth.
ANNUAL MISSION CAMP
Mission camps are a beautiful way to grow in our faith as we get dirty for Jesus! During this five-day camp in August, children, youth and adults work, study, pray and play at our beautiful camp grounds near Somerset, PA.
