Upcoming Opportunities!

CULTIVATING FRIENDSHIP with NEIGHBORS and COMMUNITY

To honor November’s traditional call for gratitude, fellowship and community, Church of the Atonement is participating in TWO wonderful events happening on November 11th:  the “1st Annual Carnegie Holiday Kickoff” sponsored by the Carnegie Community Development Corporation to highlight our community’s culturally rich international roots; and, “Welcome, Neighbor!“, brought to you by three area organizations – Vibrant Pittsburgh, NEXTpittsburgh and the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh – committed to growing strong, diverse Pittsburgh communities.

On Saturday, November 11th from 2pm to 4pm, join us for a FREE light Afternoon Tea in the English tradition offering a variety of teas, tea sandwiches and sweets in our undercroft! Our big, red beautiful doors will be open from 1pm to 5pm to receive guests interested in touring our historic Church – reminiscent of a quaint English country parish and originating in 1888.

We look forward to meeting you, our neighbors, and engaging in friendly, meaningful conversation in an open house, ‘come as you are’, fluid setting. Please come, bring a friend and say “hello!” We’re sure you’ll have fun!

 

“Come, ye thankful people, come
Raise the song of harvest home!
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin;
God, our Maker, doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come;
Raise the song of harvest home!”
—Henry Alford

December Sneak Preview!

ARTS AT ATONEMENT: OPEN MIC NIGHT!

December 3rd @ 7:30PM to 10PM

Church of the Atonement and Howlin Kitty Music, LLC have joined forces to create a spectacular evening of music and entertainment. This inaugural BYOB Open Mic Night event is open to Church members and their guests and will take place in the undercroft. In the future, this recurring monthly event will also be open to the public.

About

Howlin Kitty Music, LLC is a recording and publishing company specializing in forms of American music, musicians and artists that ordinarily would have little chance to be heard on commercial radio. Our aim is to provide a publishing, recording, and distribution platform where talented but relatively unknown musicians and songwriters can access a wider listening audience and marketplace through a variety of web based channels, including our own website.

If you’d like to participate as a volunteer or musician in our upcoming open mic events, please contact Lou or Mike at atonementcarnegie@gmail.com or call 412-279-1944.

We also have several annual holiday events and would love your help with the following wish list:

HOLIDAY GIFT BAGS for SENIORS

Each year, Church of the Atonement reaches out to the elderly to provide them with essential personal care items and an assortment of useful things for daily living. We also include greeting cards and hand deliver each holiday gift bag to their door. In many cases, our visit is often the only holiday visit these individuals receive and our bags, their only gift. Our seniors are overwhelmed knowing that they were thought of and remembered during the Christmas Season. If you would like to help, we have the following needs:

  • Personal hygiene items (soap, toothpaste, dental floss, body lotion, hair products, etc.)
  • Stationery, envelopes and blank cards (greeting, thank you, etc.)
  • Pens, pencils, note pads
  • Books of stamps
  • Flash lights
  • Socks
  • Gloves
  • Hats
  • Lap blankets
  • Mugs
  • Grocery gift cards
  • Snacks and Candies
  • Coffee and Teas

Have something else? Call Joyce @ 412-279-1944 – we love new ideas!

You may bring your items to the Church. Please contact Joyce  at atonementcarnegie@gmail.com or call  412-279-1944 to make arrangements or if you wish to make a cash gift. Receipts can be provided.

Come Volunteer with Us!

Volunteers are welcome! Volunteers are needed! We have something for everyone!

FREE CHRISTMAS DAY DINNER and OPEN HOUSE

This event and full course meal, free, open to all and prepared by professional chefs, requires a special kind of volunteer, a volunteer willing to share their Christmas Day with others. These volunteers possess the true spirit of Christmas in their hearts and understand that giving of oneself is the best gift of all. Each year, we are blessed to be among these kind and generous individuals and a party to their goodwill. 

If you fit this description, we welcome you to come, help and enjoy the day with us! It’s a lot of work; we won’t lie. We feed over 200 elderly, sick, disabled and isolated individuals each year with home delivered full menu Christmas dinners as well as opening our dining hall to community members, individuals, families and friends – anyone wanting to be a part of our festivities and extended Christmas family.

No one is ever turned away and everyone is welcome! We would love to have you join us for the day: we start early, but most volunteers come at 10am or so and leave before 4pm. We need individuals to help in the following roles:

  • Set Up and Take Down
  • Kitchen Help
  • Servers
  • Dishwashers
  • Delivery Drivers
  • Packers
  • Greeters
  • Dining Hall Companions

Please contact Joyce  at atonementcarnegie@gmail.com or call  412-279-1944.
