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.

NEW this year: The Traveling Table, a retrofitted bus that helps provide nutritious meals to kids all over Centre County, will join us!

Come stuff backpacks on Wednesday, August 7

We don’t just give out backpacks–we give out school supplies, vouchers for school clothes, helpful information for parents and lots of other goodies. All those goodies need to get into the backpacks before we give them away.

Join us on Wednesday, August 7 at Faith Church in rooms 45 & 47 at 9 AM to help stuff the backpacks. It’s a great way for all ages of your family to serve. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to invite someone who isn’t part of the Faith family to join you to meet us and learn more about who we are, what we do, and why we do it–to love God and neighbor as Jesus commanded.

Blessing of the Backpacks needs YOU!

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 or email Holly Wilson at You can make a difference in the lives of our community’s children and families!
