CURRENT PROGRAMS


HISTORY

The Wilkinsburg Community Ministry began as a cooperative effort of ten congregations in Wilkinsburg in April 1968. The original steering committee was composed of laity and clergy from the Methodist, Lutheran, United Church of Christ, Episcopal, and the Christian Church of Wilkinsburg. The Board of Directors was formed with two lay people and one clergy person from each of the cooperating congregations. Along with the part-time chaplain, the late Samuel McGill, the steering committee sought to serve as mediator in the racial unrest among the youth of the community and help them deal with the social forces affecting their lives.
