It’s back! Mark your calendar for Sunday, August 11 from 4 PM to 6 PM

Faith Church’s community outreach extravaganza returns this August as we invest in the lives of children in Bellefonte. Mark your calendars for 4-6 PM for the second Sunday in August for our community picnic to help kids and families prepare for–and be blessed for–the upcoming school year.

School-age children will receive backpacks stuffed with supplies to help them get ready for school. We’ll have hair stylists on hand for free haircuts and health professionals to offer free screenings. There will be food, fire trucks, face-painting and more.

Blessing of the Backpacks needs YOU (especially if you cut hair!)

Faith Church invests in the lives of local kids through our Blessing of the Backpacks event . . . and we need you!

Many crew leaders are in place, but they need crew people; sign up for an opportunity to serve at the Communication Table outside the sanctuary. You can make a difference in the lives of our community’s children and families!

Also: Each year we offer free health screenings and hair cuts, which get more popular every year. We need more hair cutters to help on August 11. Who do you know that cuts hair? Pray for direction, then ask–would they serve at our event? Contact Holly Wilson at Contact at for more information about what’s involved. We have heard from others who have cut hair at previous events that it’s not just a blessing for the kids and families but also a blessing for the cutters too. Ask God–who could you invite to be a part of our special day?
