Transform the Triangle
We are part of a neighborhood informally known as Park Triangle, which has struggled with blight and neglect. With a desire to demonstrate our affection for our neighbors, Covenant Fellowship has organized an annual event known as “Transform the Triangle”.
For over 10 years on the first Saturday of August, Covenant Fellowship has brought together volunteers from the church and community to beautify the local neighborhood and make it safer for its residents. With support from the Wilkinsburg borough and other local businesses and organizations, Covenant Fellowship has boarded up over 150 homes (usually with painted boards), cut down overgrown trees, demolished unsafe porches, trimmed bushes, pulled weeds, removed trash, and overall, attempted to reduce blight in the neighborhood.
While this is a small thing, relatively speaking, the church has been greatly blessed by the relationships that have been formed through this event, and our love for our neighborhood has grown.
Each summer, Covenant Fellowship hosts a number of mission teams that help with tasks in and around the church. Groups do physical labor as well as work on outreach ministries of the church. Some tasks include building maintenance, community clean-up, evangelism, Vacation Bible School, and children’s ministries.
