Pennsylvania Ave. Interfaith Food Pantry

The Pennsylvania Avenue Interfaith Food Pantry (PAIFP) at St. Andrew's to serve needy families in our area.


The food pantry is open on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 6 PM-8 PM - except for church holidays. Designed to supplement Bethlehem's West End Food Bank, we depend upon donations and volunteers to meet our goals. St. Andrew's partners with several other area churches to fulfill this mission.


Volunteers are needed for about 2 hours on the first and third Thursday mornings o the month to help unload deliveries from Second Harvest Food Bank and to stock shelves. Volunteers are also needed to help hand out food on the first and third  Wednesday nights of the month.



Bethlehem Winter Emergency Shelter

Every year since 2009, St. Andrew's opens our church to serve as an overnight shelter for Bethlehem's homeless from the beginning of December to the end of March.


St. Andrew's, along with 12 other churches provide shelter each winter to the homeless. Friday nights is our night to provide shelter, a place to sleep, dinner, breakfast , and companionship to or guests.


Beginning in December 2017, the shelter for men and women was moved to a single location, United Church of Christ at Market and Center streets. St. Andrew's is responsible for the first and third Friday nights and Saturday mornings. We provide a meal, overnight presence, and a light breakfast for approximately 70 guests.



Victory House of Lehigh Valley

Victory House is a residential non-profit organization located on the south side of Bethlehem. Through its programs and support efforts, it helps homeless men, many of them veterans, return to productive lives in the community.


Our volunteers prepare and serve a home-cooked meal the first Saturday of every month at this shelter. We usually serve around twenty men.


Contact The Rev. Lane Purdue to volunteer a meal or for more information. 



CROP Hunger Walk 


Every October, volunteers from St. Andrew's participate in the annual CROP Walk in Bethlehem, PA. This event raises funds for those in need in our community, provides disaster relief, and aid to refugees world-wide.


If you would like to walk or be a sponsor in the Bethlehem CROP Hunger Walk see the CROP Walk page for more information about this event or call The Rev. Lane Perdue.
