Women's Bible Study

If you are a female of any age, please consider joining us! We meet two Saturdays a month, the first Saturday at someone's home for a potluck brunch, prayer, and fellowship, and the second Saturday at Bellefield to study one of the Psalms. There is NO homework, so if you miss a week, no big deal! Email Kaitlyn Emile (kaitlynbonzo@gmail.com) or Heather Frank (hthrdolan@gmail.com) if interested in joining, and one of us will provide locations for the home studies
Volunteer Opportunities
There are many ways to connect with our Bellefield community, one of them is service. Sign up, either in signup genius or our Realm app, where you can log in and sign up under Serving Opportunities (scroll through the rolls and click to sign up!) Thank you for serving!

Providing Meals
# volunteers needed: occasional spots to fill in
This is an opportunity to provide meals for a family in Highland Park. Family of 4, meals needed frequently. If you are able to provide a meal or a gift card, please sign up.

Providing Rides
# volunteers needed: 4 -5 each month
This is an opportunity to serve a family of three that has been a part of our community for a long time! If you are fully vaccinated, and have room for three individuals in your car, we would love to have you sign up for a Sunday or two over the summer to drive them home from church after the 10:00 service. This family is fully vaccinated. They live nearby in Squirrel Hill. Please send any questions to Janice.bryant@gmail.com

Bag Packing
  # volunteers needed: typically 1-2 each month
The week leading up to the Food Bank Distribution, volunteers help pack food into bags for our food bank clients. They typically meet on a week night, like Wednesday, for an hour.
Delivery Driver
 # volunteers needed: typically 4-5 each month
 The day before the Food Bank distribution, delivery drivers will receive an email telling them which clients they will be delivering to. On the day of the Food Bank distribution, drivers will pick up bags from the On-Site Coordinator at Bellefield and deliver a set of bags to each of their clients (usually only 2-3 stops, all within 15213 zip code). A couple of our clients requested extra assistance in getting their bags inside.  If you are willing to provide this, please indicate this in your email (not a requirement). 

Food Bank Delivery Unloading
 # volunteers needed: typically 2-3 each time we get a delivery from the food bank
We order food from a local food bank, and this role would help unload the deliveries. This would involve moving large heavy boxes (up to 40 lbs) from the curb into the food pantry room and organizing the food and boxes within the pantry room.
