Mission & Outreach

The Ladle

THE LADLE is an ecumenical soup kitchen that makes its home in the Fellowship Hall of St. John's Lutheran Church; 1320 Church Street; Old Economy; Ambridge, Pennsylvania.  Every Monday afternoon between 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM, we provide a hot meal and warm hospitality to our guests.

This mission is supported by volunteer groups from 17 local churches/organizations that prepare and serve  meals every Monday.

Young Life


​Young Life thinks the world of kids. We believe that they deserve to know what life can hold for them. Young Life leaders are caring adults who come sharing that hope as well as fun and lasting friendships with kids. Young Life is also all about fun. From club and camp to Campaigners and other activities, teenagers will have blast laughing, trying new things and talking about some of the most important questions in life.
