On Sunday, January 1, 2020, we joined the Pittsburgh Lutheran United Ministries (PLUM) as a one-year trial member.  Then, on Sunday, November 22, 2020, we voted to join PLUM as a full member of PLUM. 

 

PLUM will provide our pastoral leadership, but we still need to perform the church 'office' functions, as well as maintain our church building and grounds.  Contact the church office, if you need any pastoral care (wedding, funeral, hospital visits, etc.)
