Orchard Hill is committed to reaching those in greatest need with
financial, emotional and spiritual support.
Eleos: the Greek word for a gift - specifically a gift of mercy
Reaching others in need demonstrates the love of God. Ministry that supports the local community, inner-city Pittsburgh, and the nation of Haiti allows the community of Orchard Hill to share themselves with others who need to experience the message of God's love.
Caring for those within our community...
Support for Those in Acute Need
The Eleos fund allows those who have resources to support others within our church family who have or have seen a need. We support those who are struggling by providing a bridge through periods of uncertainty. Eleos Here Offerings take place on the 5th weekend of the month.
Periodic Food Drives bring food and supplies to families in need in the North Hills, Strip District and Butler County by supporting the food pantries operated by North Hills Community Outreach, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and the Lighthouse Foundation.
Life Group Service Projects
Life Groups at Orchard Hill create a place to encourage and challenge each other to grow in faith, develop friendships, and experience life change. Life Groups bring life to the local community by serving together in local ministries. Learn more about Life Groups and get involved.
Touching those within our region...
Light of Life Mission
Light of Life provides food and shelter to those in need within the Pittsburgh region. The partnership of Orchard Hill will help the Light of Life Mission financially support their Meal Ministry by funding the Sunday evening meals each week.
Serve a Meal
Through Light of Life Rescue Mission, Orchard Hill also has the opportunity to help those in need by serving meals, participating in Chapel services, or other service opportunities. Contact the volunteer coordinator, Brenna Gallagher, directly via email or phone, 412-258-6128.
Reaching those beyond our borders....
The nation of Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Orchard Hill is committed to reaching those in greatest need with financial, emotional and spiritual support. Through short-term mission trips, KidsFest Haiti and a church plant, Orchard Hill is committed to bringing the light of Jesus Christ across the ocean to the people of Haiti.
The Church EBECA
Partnering with Pastor Saint-Ange and Hope Baptist Church of Cap Haitien, we have a church plant in Cararcol (25 miles east of Cap Haitien). The Elders of Hope Baptist oversee the day to day operations of the new church and we at Orchard Hill provide financial support and opportunities to engage the surrounding community through outreach events such as KidsFest, Medical Clinics, Soccer programs, etc.
The Church EBECA ('glise Baptiste d Elus Caracol), celebrated their one year anniversary on Easter Sunday 2017 and has already had a strong impact in the community. We look forward to a long relationship with these churches in Haiti and wait prayerfully to see what God will do there.
Eleos Haiti provides ongoing support to the EBAC Orphanage and the children who live there, helping to meet operational needs.
A team from Orchard Hill helps recreate the KidsFest experience by providing a high quality, biblical day camp for 300 Haitian children who do not have access to other Christ-centered activities. Much like KidsFest, children have the opportunity to experience a fun-filled week of singing, Bible stories, art and crafts, team time, games and much more. Led by Haitian leaders, children interact with small groups of kids their own age, develop skills to work together as a team, and understand how much they matter to God and others.
Campers from KidsFest support the KidsFest Haiti effort through their annual Campers-4-Campers giving campaign. Gifts collected each week will go directly towards off-setting the expenses to bring KidsFest to the children of Haiti.
