The Round Hill Clothes Closet is available to anyone in need of clothing for women, men and children.  Please pass the word that the clothing is free and food pantry access is not a requirement.  An appointment is necessary to shop and can be made by calling the RH Church Office (412) 384-5889.  Also, if you have donations to drop off, please call ahead to the Round Hill Church Office to be sure someone is there to accept your donation.  Please don’t leave them outside the door.  Jan Gronlund is the Clothes Closet Coordinator and would be happy to answer any questions.

MEALS ON WHEELS is in need of volunteers for all phases of the operation – kitchen, drivers, runners.  This time of year, we have many of our volunteers that have gone south for the winter or on vacations.  There is definitely a shortage.  If you can help, please call Suzie in the office (412) 751-0511 or Linda with MOW (412) 751-2230.  Our volunteers do not have to be associated with our congregation – maybe you know of a family member or friend that can help.  Please be on the lookout for helpers!

Please keep the following members & friends and their families in prayer:

  • With great sadness, we report the death of Lois Davis.  Mrs. Davis passed away on Monday, January 17th.  Viewing at Gilbert’s Boston will be on Thursday evening from 4:00 until 7:00 and the funeral service will be held at Gilberts on Friday morning at 10:00 am.  Mrs. Davis was a Charter Member of CH – listed as the 8th person taken into membership on 6/30/1957.  Our sincere sympathies and prayers for the Davis family and Leggett Family. 
  • Our sympathies to Robert Magiske and family on the passing of Doris on Wednesday, January 12th.  Doris is also the sister of Carol Walker.  Pastor Steve conducted her funeral service and burial yesterday.  Prayers of healing for the family. 
  • Please pray for Ray Nemchick.  Ray had a head first fall last weekend and sustained severe injuries.  He was in the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital for several days with multiple injuries to his face and head.  Sue reported on Wednesday that he would be moved probably to McKeesport Hospital physical therapy to regain strength and stability.  They are very grateful for your prayers and ask for continued prayer support for Ray and Sue.  .
  • Allene McCall has requested prayer for her mother, Jan Kostolansky.  She took ill on January 7th and was taken to the ER on Sunday then admitted to ICU a few hours away in another hospital for lack of available beds. Her diagnosis was RSV.  She was released on Sunday – Allene drove up (New York) Sunday afternoon to help with her care.  She reported that she is recuperating but doctors say it could take several weeks/months to recover fully.  Please keep Mrs. Kostolansky in prayer.
  • Prayers are requested for the following families that have members diagnosed with COVID:  Karnes/Brumley families, Sandy Wrona’s son Dean, the VA Gronlunds, Kaelyn McClain and WVU swim team members,  some Ulery family children & grandchildren.  A few of our families have recovered and are back to worship.    
  • Please pray for Glenda Stoll, cousin of Sarah Sparico.  Glenda had a stroke on Saturday and is in Jefferson ICU. 
  • Clarence requested prayer for a 4 month old baby, Emma, in ICU with botulism. 
  • Continue to keep the Hoffman and Zora family in prayer on the passing of Bob.  .
  • Karen Prescott had a procedure last week and is feeling better.  She should be able to drive in the next few days.    Please continue to keep Karen in prayer. 
  • Please pray for the many families that have been impacted by COVID as it is spreading throughout our area.  I have many reports of family members that have tested positive or are not feeling well. 
  • Please continue to remember the long list of friends and family members mentioned each week by Pastor Steve during worship.  Please pray for these families and for the doctors and medical personnel caring for each and every one.
  • We continue to pray for all on our Frontline Workers list - doctors, nurses, medical personnel, first responders, retail workers and all providing the much-needed services to the community during the pandemic.  We thank them for their dedicated service and pray for their safety and good health.
