WHAT TO EXPECT
Weekend services at our Amplify Church/Pittsburgh East Campus last 60-70 minutes. As soon as you enter our parking lots you will be greeted by our enthusiastic Parking Team! First time guests are encouraged to put their flashers on for special guest parking, and Valet service is also available for parents or guardians with young children and the elderly. Once in the building be sure to stop by the Welcome Center if it's your first time with us and let us know. There you will find some great people who can give you more information, a tour of our facility if you'd like, and something free from our Cafe. During our services you will notice that people dress casually and comfortably and the video screens and lighting may remind you more of a concert setting than a traditional worship service. But as you check out the words of the opening songs, you will know that you are definitely in church! After some brief announcements and a low key offering, a message is shared that focuses on practical application of timeless Biblical truths. Have kids? Any one of our volunteers can direct you to our incredible children's areas.
The following will give you a quick look into the weekend experience
across all ages and programs at our Pittsburgh East Campus.

FOR A NEW GENERATION
"If our children reject the core truths of Christianity, may God have mercy on them. If our children reject the core truths of Christianity because we have expected and assumed that they would accept our preferred approach to church, then may God have mercy on us." -Lee Kricher, For A New Generation
For a New Generation is a guide for churches that want to more effectively reach and continue to reach the next generation. It is not about changing your church's statement of faith or core beliefs. It is about evaluating and changing, as needed, your church's approach to ministry to make sure that the best days are still ahead.
Inspired by the transformation and revitalization of the author's aging church, this guide is written with the goal of helping church leaders and church members work through critical questions and reach prayerful consensus about which changes may be relevant and right for your church.
Our preschool and elementary kids learn about core biblical truths each week through creative, age-appropriate teaching, singing and super fun games and activities in some amazing environments! Amplify Kids love coming to church! Learn more about all of the amazing children & youth programs and environments at our Pittsburgh East Campus.
All children and youth workers and/or volunteers at Amplify Church are required to undergo a criminal background check and strictly adhere to our Children & Youth Worker Guidelines.
ASL INTERPRETATION AVAILABLE
At Amplify Church our vision is to lead as many people as possible into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, and we strive to do everything in our power to be able to communicate God’s Word to all who walk through our doors - including those who would require sign language inerpretation. Therefore, ASL interpretation is available at our Sunday services. Children are especially important to us and all interpreters who serve in our children’s areas must pass background checks and child abuse clearances. If you need interpretation in one of our children's environments, please contact the church office at 412.793.1600 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make your request by Monday at 4 PM for the following Sunday. Every attempt will be made to provide an interpreter, however, if we cannot obtain an interpreter we will be unable to accept the child into our care for that particular service.
