Women’s Ministries at South Ave. will again be selling grilled hot dogs and corn-on-the-cob, chips and beverages at the Wilkinsburg Thursday Open Market (aka Farmers’ Market). The corn should be available the first week in July. Our stand will be open every Thursday through the 8th of September. The hours will be 3:00-6:00 pm.
Take out, or dine on our sidewalk patio! It’s fun!
Proceeds will go toward mission. Eat, socialize and help the world!


Mark Your Calendar for Guest Speaker – July 31
Mystery guests coming on July 31 after the brunch. Come to brunch and stay afterward to hear a missionary we’ve supported for over 25 years. He and his wife work in a sensitive area of the world so we can’t mention their names in print, but they have lots of interesting things to tell us and what they do is relevant to our world today. Women’s Ministries is sponsoring the speakers.
Brunch is in the dining room at 11:15 am. The talk will begin about 12:15 pm.


Our newly elected Bishop, Bishop Cynthia Moore Koikoi, will be installed on October 1, 2016 at 2:00 pm.  Please plan to join us at the New Episcopal Leader Celebration at Butler First –Crossfire Campus.  More details to follow.
