come to our house for Christmas dinner
It's a Bellefonte Christmas tradition: Family and friends from all around the area gather on Christmas Day to enjoy dinner together. It's comfort and joy for the body, mind, and spirit, and the only cost is a smile.
The tradition continues this year with the return of in-house dining from 4 - 6 PM, as well as availability of takeout meals from 3:30-5 PM and delivered dinners from 3-5 PM.
Reservations are not needed for in-house dining; sign up for a delivered or take-out meal below.

Christmas Day Dinner frequently-asked questions
How much does a dinner cost?
There is no charge for Faith's Christmas dinner. We do receive donations on Christmas Day (100% of which go to our Christmas Eve/Day offering), but they are absolutely not necessary or required.
Can I come into the church and sit down for dinner?
Yes! We return to in-house dining this year, from 4-6 PM. Come to our house for Christmas! Of course, if there are changes to state and local health guidelines, we will observe them and will widely publicize any changes. If you can't come to us, pick up a dinner for takeout or sign up to have a dinner delivered to you. Sign ups for takeout and delivery are available here.
I might live too far away to get a delivery. How far do you deliver?
We bring Christmas dinners to neighbors who request them in the greater Bellefonte, PA area. Please call the church office at 814.355.3358 if you live near Bellefonte to confirm that you live in an area where we deliver dinner.
What if I do live too far away to get a dinner?
You can pick up a dinner for takeout on Christmas Day. Reservations for takeout can be made here.
I can't come into the building. How will I get my takeout dinner?
All of our takeout dinners will be brought out to you under our covered entrance near the steeple and provided with minimal contact.
I have a food allergy. Can you accomodate special requests?
Unfortunately, we are unable to accomodate special food requests. Our Christmas Dinner items include wheat/gluten, milk, and eggs; in addition, our pumpkin and apple pies are prepared in a kitchen where they may come into contact with peanuts and/or tree nuts.
Can I get my gravy on top of my stuffing? Can I have extra mashed potatoes?
To ensure we can serve everyone in a timely fashion, we do not customize our menu. In house, we'll provide you with generous helpings of turkey with all the trimmings, with sauces and gravy on the side. We pack all of our takeout and delivery meals in the same way; gravy and cranberry sauce is packaged separately from the other menu items.
