Bible Center Church was founded in obedience to the Lord’s call to start a church in Pittsburgh, and in response to what was described as a spiritual “cry for help,” that came from the Homewood community. Bible Center purchased the former Rite Aid building in Homewood and have begun to transform it from a vacant community eyesore to a multi-purpose facility called the W.A.R.M.—worship, arts, recreation and ministry—Center. The opportunity to reclaim, re-use, and revitalize this structure to worship God and to serve the children, youth, families, and senior citizens of Homewood is a blessing and honor. These properties have been used to teach young people the construction trades, for a new community playground, for parenting and financial literacy classes, and most recently as the home for the “Maker’s Place” an ESTEAM (entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering, arts and math) focused out-of-school time program that teaches young people 21st Century skills including, computer coding, website development, fashion design, and digital media and manufacturing.
