LAZARUS FUND SPECIAL OFFERING


The Lazarus Fund Offering, one of the six Presbytery special offerings we collect at Northmont each year, is received during the month of February. The fund, a Pittsburgh Presbytery initiative, started during the economic struggles of 1984, but the need continues today. It makes grants of direct aid available to families in crisis, who are struggling to pay for basic survival needs. 70% of the undesignated funds provide emergency assistance to session sponsored families and the remaining 30% provide economic and employment development assistance. Designated funding supports the Caring Program for Children. The fund has no overhead and is administered through a special committee of the Presbytery. Please consider helping families in need by contributing to the Lazarus Fund. Checks can be made out to Northmont UP church, marked for the Lazarus

Fund. Thank you.

Meet a choir member

Amber Rigot, volunteer alto


Hi! I’m Amber and I’m very happy to be at Northmont Presbyterian and back with the director who started my career in music. I grew up being in choirs all across Pittsburgh and graduated from Duquesne University with a degree in music education. Through my degree program I was fortunate to perform alongside the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. After college I taught middle school band and guitar in Las Vegas for a few years then decided it was time to return to my hometown. Now I specialize in helping young professionals and families create financial plans that will benefit them for a lifetime. 


When I’m not making music I’m playing with my cats, watching Forensic Files, sleeping, or thinking about where I’m going to travel to next

Plea for help: Adult Handbells practice on Thursdays from 4:30-5:30. We are desperately in need of more ringers if we are to continue ringing. If you would like to join us, please contact me at stephen@northmontchurch.org. We usually ring once a month. A strong commitment and an ability to read music are needed. We will teach you how to ring if you haven’t. Handbells have been a vital part of Northmont’s music ministry over the years. It would be a shame to see this legacy end. Please consider joining us if you can. 


If you are interested in knowing more about singing in the choir, please contact me at stephen@northmontchurch.org. Chancel Choir practices 6:30 - 8:30 most Thursdays and sings for worship throughout the school year. Requirements are a pleasing voice, the ability to read music, and a good sense of humor.
