On a Shared Journey
Traditionally, urban churches have been noted for their deep commitment to serve both the spiritual and earthly needs of diverse congregants and community members alike, working towards the common good of city dwellers. Deutschtown churches are no exception, and are noted for their community work, including supporting the EACC programs such as the Deutschtown House Tour and Pumpkinfest.
There are over 15 churches of various denominations within a one-mile radius of the Deutschtown business district, ranging from small, strong congregations to the expansive mega-church. Northside clergy find concrete ways to work together on ecumenical worship services and social programs, expressing the shared, deep commitment to serve.
And, you will find these churches partnering with other non- profits on common interests, such s the youth group at Community House Church partnering with the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh to provide book reviews. Together, the churches in and around Deutschtown are the backbone of critical social justice programs by staffing summer camps, hosting health-screenings, teaching after-school curricula, providing home-cooked meals and clothing, and hosting thought-provoking films, speakers and concerts.
