Pleasant Valley Shelter

Pleasant Valley Shelter meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month to prepare a meal to serve to the men who stay at the Northside Common Ministries shelter. You can help by donating food for the meal, helping prepare the meal, or helping serve the meal. You can choose to do one, two or all three. You do not need to help each month but you may sign up as your schedule permits. If you are interested, please contact Amy Mendicino

Prayer Group

Prayer Group meets every Wednesday evening from 6-7 pm on Zoom. We pray for the joys and concerns of the church body and for our world as a whole. New pray-ers are always welcome.  Contact Mary Michalek at if you wish to join.


THRIVE is a community of people who desire to practice hospitality by connecting newly arrived immigrants and refugees, via E-crowdsourcing, with neighbors in the Pittsburgh community. The idea is to help provide needed items as a gesture of welcome and a practical example of Christian love. Some of our recent activities have been to prepare and distribute THRIVE Welcome Bags (cinch sacks which are given to children arriving at Pgh International Airport), collect needed clothing and children’s items for newly arrived refugees, make monetary donations to help with rent or other unexpected expenses, and plan and implement Supper Clubs with proceeds benefitting an immigrant family. Please contact Pauline Spring to learn more about this worthwhile and rewarding ministry,

Tuesday Morning Bible Study

The Tuesday Bible study group has been meeting for over 25 years at NHCBC. It is a great way to enhance your week, enjoy fellowship, and through the variety of topics studied, enrich your walk with the Lord. We meet every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. in the Cafe. Contact Linda Wagner

Virtual Hugs

Everyone is welcome to join us to just visit and chat. We will discuss a different topic each week. We will be challenged to safely reach out to people in our lives. We all need to know we are not forgotten by family and friends. We will, of course, begin and end our time together with Virtual Hugs. We plan to meet Tuesday evenings @ 7:30 starting September 22. If you would like to join us contact Joyce Katich at
