Missions & Mercy

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.

1 Corinthians 16:13

We desire to be a church body that is zealous for God’s glory among our neighborhoods and all nations.  We believe that both local and global disciplemaking is not only our God-given task, but our God-given joy.  We feel God has called us to not only pursue this mission in our city, but across our state, country, and world.  Join us in any of our opportunities to pray, give, send, or even go.

Annual Local Outreach

Trunk or Treat

Getting out into the community is important to us. One of the ways we do this to engage with entire families is setting up for Trunk or Treat every year. We enjoy getting to see kids have fun as families in the community engage with us on their time. 

Thanksgiving Meals

We also think it is important to help those in our community who may be struggling during the holiday seasons. It is easy to get wrapped up in our own plans and forget that there are folks who have no one and want to help them enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with a proper meal.

Ministries We Support

Update from The Dixons @ Pursuit Church (Pittsburgh, PA)

It’s hard to believe it is already April! Our team just had a 1st quarter review and could not believe we are already this far along in 2024. We are very excited about the way our journey has progressed this year. As I have mentioned, our strategy this year has been to expand our core by making disciples in our community. It has been deeply encouraging to see God bless our efforts! We have seen several families and singles begin to gather with us consistently for our Monday night bible study. What is most exciting is that the people who have joined us have been exactly who we were praying for: people far from God or Christians who were disconnected from community. It has been a huge blessing to labor in this city and see the Lord draw people towards us as he draws them to Himself. I am so proud of our core team as they have faithfully served and carried the mission to our community here in Pittsburgh!

I want to share a few ways that you can be praying for Pursuit Church. We are finishing a 13 week series through Ephesians this upcoming Monday. The following week, we will be beginning a 3 week series on “God and Suffering” where we will explore God’s heart and purpose in our suffering. I have discerned that there is a great interest from people in how to make sense of suffering and how to reconcile it with a good and loving God. Unfortunately, it seems that the version of American Christianity that most people often subscribe to today does not have theological  room for suffering. I hope to provide a picture of God’s goodness and sovereignty in suffering as well as his grand, kingdom-minded purpose for us in the midst of trials. Pray for me in my preparation as well as for our hearts to be receptive to these deep truths.

We are also excited for the opportunity to serve our community in a very special way. On May 18th, we will be hosting a free dinner and night of activities for single mom’s at Ruckus cafe. As our church has continued to pray for ways we can be serving our community, we have been drawn towards those in our community that are in deep need. This service opportunity is one that we are grateful and excited to step into! Pray that this event would be fruitful!

We thank you for all your prayer and support. It is an honor to serve the kingdom in this way! Pray with us that God would give our family endurance to persevere well in this journey! Pray also for the health of baby #5!

We thank you for your prayers and encouragement!

Supplying needs of saints. Overflowing in thanksgiving to God

"For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God. By their approval of this service, they will glorify God because of your submission that comes from your confession of the gospel of Christ and the generosity of your contribution for them and for all others," - 2 Corinthians 9:12-13

Giving to missions is something we take seriously at SRBC. If it has been placed on your heart to give to missions but not sure how to do that, join us in our mission to make that happen and give to our dedicated missions fund.
