What to expect when you visit.
Jonah's Call is an Anglican church. Our worship, in Word and Sacrament, follows the tradition of the Book of Common Prayer, which assumes that our hearts and minds need to be transformed daily, weekly, and completely.
As we worship, God softens, comforts, and challenges our hearts and minds, allowing us to be transformed by His love and forgiveness.
We believe in an experience of worship that allows us to move beyond being mere consumers, to becoming participants in worship, not just on Sunday, but in our everyday lives.
Jonah's Call has a simple but excellent music program. We sing a mix of modern and traditional songs, using mostly acoustic instruments and relying on the congregation to be the choir. For us, in the context of worship, music is not performance but a means of corporate prayer.
Each week's sermon is anchored in the good news of Jesus Christ, crucified and resurrected for our sake. Our preaching intends to uplift, enrich, provoke conversation, and impart practical wisdom. During the sermon we engage God's word in age-appropriate ways with a Pre-K Club for children ages 3-5 and a Kids' Club for ages 6-12.
Whether you're just passing through or here to stay, you're family when you come to Jonah's Call. We're an eclectic group: big families, newlyweds, college students, retirees, young professionals and everyone in between.
ONCE A MONTH SUNDAY DINNER.
On the last Sunday of the month, we host a free potluck dinner after the service. Most folks love to stay and eat, laugh, catch up and connect.
Parking is available in the two lots located next to the church on Neville and Ellsworth Avenues, on street, and in the Oakland Catholic School parking lot located on Neville Avenue. Children’s Ministry and nursery childcare are provided during the service, dress is casual, and a free potluck meal follows the service on the last Sunday of every month.
Why are we called Jonah's Call?
In the Bible, Jonah was a prophet called to bring the good news of God's love to a city in desperate need of it. We believe that Pittsburgh is a city worth loving, worth praying for, worth investing in, and worth raising our families in.
We believe that we can accomplish this together by worshiping God, loving our neighbors, and shaping culture through our daily work.
