The Dumb Ox – Carmichaels, PA
The Dumb Ox in Carmichaels is a place where people can get together and share their thoughts in a warm, comfortable environment of spiritual friendship. They meet weekly on Friday at 8 p.m. As the Original Pub, it has seen it’s fair share of changes and adaptations over the years, but a few things are always consistent: there’s always a drink ready for your hand and a couch ready for you to sit. At the Dumb Ox, Christ is King and all are welcome.

The Thundering Seeds– Upper St. Clair, PA
The Thundering Seeds are here for the young, passionate, and spirited. Focused on those still in high school and all the way to their senior year in college, the club gathers Friday at 6:30 filled to the brim with activities. The evening is kicked off with some cool and collaborative presentations, followed by deep discussions over a can of bubbles, and finished off with the thrill of games inside and out. Don’t worry, there are plenty of home baked goods to go around.
