Following Jesus means loving others as you love yourself and helping to spread the Gospel as you show your faith through action. You can become involved in mission at Third Church by helping out with the Summer Food Program, which provides free lunches to kids under 18. You can join the Mission Crafters, who sew, cook, and make gifts for congregation members, shut-ins, and missionaries we support. You can volunteer for work days in the community, be a part of the East Side Community Fest, and more. Call the church office to learn more and get involved!
Summer Food Program
The Summer Food Program at Crestview Gardens was a huge success, averaging between 20 and 30 children every day. We extend a huge thank you to all who helped to make this program possible and look forward to more events in the future.
We host a variety of outreach events designed to develop and deepen relationships with communities in New Castle. We encourage you to get involved…it’s a fantastic way to be the ‘hands and feet’ of Jesus and help to build His kingdom in our neighborhoods.
Volunteer Days at the City Rescue Mission Covenant House
We volunteer at the City Rescue Mission Covenant House, which provides temporary housing for women and families who are getting back on their feet. Activities vary each time but include teaching the women how to cook, bake, sew, etc. — plus spending some great fellowship time with them and praying for them.
Questions? Want to volunteer or suggest a future activity? Contact Christine at 724-202-6589 or sign up on the bulletin board at the church.
East Side Community Fest
At the end of the summer of 2012, we hosted our first East Side Community Fest, a free block party open to the residents of New Castle. We provided games, a bounce house, snow cones, dinner, and more. At the end of the night we watched a movie on a big screen in the parking lot. It was a fantastic event and a beautiful night.

Stay tuned for upcoming Fall 2013 mission/outreach opportunities!
