ministry & outreach

Did you know that 3 out of 4 teachers say they have children in their classrooms who regularly come to school hungry?

The Bag Brigade started with the intent on helping end childhood hunger in our community and a conviction that every child should have the nourishment they need to learn and grow. The mission is simple – pack bags with food so the kids in need throughout the BVASD don’t go hungry on the weekends. 

Built on the commitment to offer a hand up, not a hand out, H&FP provides FREE clothing for all school age children in need.

No income requirement.

Donation Drop off locations: [2T through Teen]
Jazzy Boutique in Belle Vernon or The Hub.

Provides local kids and families with Christ centered kids' activities, after school program, and transportation to church. Building relationships with families through a steady presence, and listening ear.

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
Hebrews 6:19 

Local & Global Outreach

We recognize that we cannot fulfill God’s mission all by ourselves. We partner with other ministries in order to bring Jesus to those outside our own realm.

Locally we partner with CCO in calling college students to serve Jesus Christ with their entire lives. Our local ministry, S.T.A.N.D. (Students Taking A New Direction), is at University of California.

Internationally we have partnered for 8+ years with Envision in El Salvador with church planting, community support, and ministries to the poor.  We are beginning a new partnership with international workers in Jordan to help with ESL training, community development, and children’s ministry.

As part of the worldwide family of the Christian & Missionary Alliance we are invested in their work
