Calvary, a church without walls, is coming to the Valley to provide opportunities for people to live Gospel-centered lives by connecting to Christ, Community and their Calling.
At Calvary Penns Valley, we love living in a farming community and desire to create a Sunday gathering atmosphere that is comfortable and informal. We want you to come as you are! We have a lot of love to give the community including: a great Sunday worship service with children’s ministry, opportunities to connect with others in the community,and providing a strong support system for individuals and families in our community. You can get connected to a life group today! Contact pastor Vince at [email protected] or 814-238-0822 ext. 12.
Join us on Sunday, May 3 at 4:00 PM at the Bremen Town Ballroom in Millheim for our first information session with ICE CREAM and fun. Come as you are!
We will hold our first worship gathering on Sunday, September 13, 2015 and are looking for people to join the launch team!

The YMCA of Centre County opened its newest facility in the Penns Valley community of Spring Mills in January of 2016. The 13,400 square foot facility features fitness and multi-purpose rooms, offering a variety of fitness classes, spinning, after school program, summer day camp, senior programs, and more.
The Y welcomes all to become members and provides Open Doors financial assistance for those with a demonstrated financial need. Much more than a gym, the Y will focus on opportunities to nurture the potential of children, improve the community’s health and well-being, and give back and provide support to your neighbors.
In addition to opportunities for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the YMCA revitalized a previously vacant building, and brought new jobs and economic development to the community.

In existence since 1992, the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) is a diverse network of growers, businesses and consumers that facilitate and enable viable farming systems for providing healthy food as locally as possible through innovative programs of education, marketing and advocacy in service to its members and the general public.
As the largest statewide, member-based sustainable farming organization in the United States, we seek to improve the economic viability, environmental soundness and social responsibility of food and farming systems in Pennsylvania and across the country. We place great value on efforts to build bridges between broadly diverse participants in the agricultural industry, from “farm to fork.”
PASA grew out of the need for an educational and support system for farmers – both experienced and beginning – interested in non-traditional agricultural practices, such as organic, biodynamic and grass-based farming, as well as the desire to create local markets for sustainably produced food.
PASA’s mission is the underlying theme of all of our programs – promoting profitable farms that produce healthy food for all people while respecting the natural environment – as our work is rooted in education and support for farmers, and outreach to the general public.
