The backpack program has proven popular among Faith United Methodist Church members.

Faith United Methodist launches new backpack project


A group of Faith United Methodist Church congregation members has been spending a little more time at church on Sunday mornings, but they don't seem to mind. In fact, they're actually quite glad to be there a little longer.

That's because they're busy helping out some of Farmington's children. More specifically, they're there to help provide a couple of meals for some of the community's most helpless victims of hunger - school-aged children.
