" You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden, Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Matthew 5:14-16 


WORSHIP: Our first aim is to worship the Lord, for He is worthy to be praised. We glorify His name through praise and worship, the reading of His Word, laying on of hands in prayer, and serving to make sure the worship service blesses those in attendance and those who may be watching from home. 

BIBLE STUDY: On Tuesday evenings (and also via texts throughout the week), we study God's Word, following our meal together. We have studied the foundations of our faith (Christianity 101, ALPHA), heresies (Superheroes Can't Save You), and what it means to live as Resurrected people. During the summer months we usually watch Christian movies and TV series (i.e., The Chosen). We have also led the congregation in Bible Study Challenges to increase the reading of God's Word.

PRAYER:  We are always one text or phone call or email away. We will pray for you on the spot, and also have a Prayer Board at church to post requests. You are not alone!

SERVICE: We serve our students through regular check-ins, fun activities to destress (game nights), and care packages during mid-terms and finals, and illnesses. We also partner with PRISM during their Garage Giveaway, and help students move.

FRIENDSHIP: We like having fun together. Whether we play games on Sunday nights, go out for ice cream, celebrate birthdays, or go out for mini golf or a movie, we enjoy being together! Throughout the year we have fellowship meals like International Food Festival. Chinese New Year, and Friendsgiving.

REST:  We offer times of retreat, 1-2 times a year (depending on schedules). We have retreated at Presque Isle, Seven Springs, and Jumonville. We want to offer you times to get away and be with God!

SENDING FORTH: We have been blessed to witness baptisms, and see new people come into the faith. We also have the privilege to befriend many students who must return to their hometown (USA or aboard), or venture to new jobs. We pray they have grown deeper in their faith while with us at FBCPGH, and we pray for them, sending them forth to show the light of the Lord wherever they go.
