Our Newest Mission
Bethany Ev. Lutheran Church
(Dormont) held its 33rd annual
FREE Thanksgiving Dinner for the
community on Thanksgiving Day
For over the past quarter
century, the congregation of
Bethany, along with support from
other local churches, has been
blessed to be able to provide a
FREE Thanksgiving Dinner as a
community service on
Thanksgiving Day. Dinners were
served from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
we served 880
meals! (489 meals were eat-in;
391 were delivered)
Some who attend are homeless,
some are struggling financially
and some have no close family
with whom to spend the holiday.
For folks who were shut-in or
otherwise homebound, delivery
service was provided, free of
charge. Everyone is
welcomed and each person is
treated to good fellowship and a
traditional Thanksgiving dinner
with turkey, stuffing, mashed
and sweet potatoes, vegetable,
rolls, pumpkin and fruit pies,
coffee and tea.
Bethany accepts donations of
cooked turkeys and turkey
breasts (in their juices),
stuffed or unstuffed, stuffing
mix, mashed potatoes, candied
yams/sweet potatoes and pies. A
small army of volunteers help to
set-up, cook, serve and deliver
meals...and of course, clean-up.

Friday, March 21 (and March 28 & April 4), 2014
FREE Fish Fry Dinner
Bethany Evangelical Lutheran
(3104 W. Liberty Ave., Pittsburgh 15216, Dormont) again served
its annual Fish Fry Dinners during Lent. The dinners were held
on March 21, March 28 and April 4 in the church social hall.
There was no charge for these dinners, but donations were accepted.
All proceeds were given to people or organizations in the community
who were in need or who assist the needy.
Although these Fish Fry
dinners originated as a fund-raising event, the
purpose is no longer to raise money for the church. Instead, any profits from the dinners are donated
back to the local community (sometimes to families
in need, sometimes to food banks, etc.).
