The Festival of Life is an annual carnival sponsored by a number of churches and ministries in the Lebanon area. The Festival was birthed out of a weekly pastors’ prayer meeting (Lebanon Valley Prayer Network) a number of years ago. From the beginning, the goal is to lift high the name of Jesus in Lebanon.
The Festival of Life is a fun, lively event for our city. There’s a worship stage,“bouncy houses,” hot dogs and concessions, face-painting and more, as well as a grocery giveaway. There are prayer stations, a nurse for health screening, and representatives from local social organizations & agencies like The Lebanon Rescue Mission, SVPS-Susquehanna Valley Pregnancy Services, Teen Challenge, Urban Development, SARCC – Sexual Assault Resource Center & more.Everything is totally free.
Our purpose is not to promote any specific church, but to work together as the Body of Christ to promote Jesus in our city. Accordingly, individual churches do not bring their own materials but collaborate in loving our city as God’s people in general.
This year the Festival of Life will take place on Saturday, June 16, 2018, from 11-4 at the Lebanon Middle School Stadium on N 7th Street.
