love God, love others

Faith Church serves

Faith Church believes that followers of Jesus become more like him as we relate to God and to others.

One significant area where we grow is in serving others. We believe we become more like Jesus when we use our time and treasure to do God's work, and our gifts and talents to build up the church. Just like Jesus did, we intentionally connect and share the gospel with the people around us, and we continually find ways to make the world around us better.

While many of our in-person opportunities to serve others are on hold right now due to restrictions to slow the spread of COVID-19, we are finding new ways to connect, encourage, share and make our world better.

Prayer Team: Faith Church has a committed group of people who pray for requests submitted during worship gatherings or the week. Larry Jensen leads our Prayer Team; to learn more about this ministry, contact him at

Mask-making initiative: Since the stay-at-home order was put in place, Faith's Prayer Quilt & Prayer Shawl ministry has turned their attention to making cloth masks for individuals and groups. They've made over 3000 so far, and since the PA Department of Health's recommendation of wearing a mask in public was announced, the demand has increased. Put your craftiness to the service of others!

All materials and instructions are provided. If you'd like to help bless Bellefonte and beyond with masks, contact Jan McDowell, at 814.383.4816 or

Connections phone ministry: This new team makes calls to people who are feeling isolated or lonely during this time of social distancing. Learn more here.

Coming soon: Faith Church continues to monitor the needs at the FaithCentre Food Bank and are ready to support as needed. Future church mission initiatives include leading a day of service in our neighborhoods (these and other opportunities to serve others are in the planning stages right now).

As we continue to serve and learn new ways to do so, we'll update this page. To learn more or ask questions, contact the Faith Church office at 814.355.3358 or
