Thanks to everyone who joined us for the day. The weather ultimately cooperated, but it was your being here that made the day special.
We hope we see you again real soon – in worship or at our covered dish and ditty night, or at our breakfast, or at our Halloween Family Fun Night, or at our Veterans Dinner…
We hope you will join us this Saturday, October 10th from 10am to 4pm for our Harvest Fair!
There will be great food, a parking lot (and sidewalk) full of crafters, and entertainment all day. Plus activities for the kids, contests, mums, pumpkins, etc. If you would like to enter one of our contests, click on the tab Harvest Fair 2015! for more information.
The Harvest Fair began as a way for the church to meet its commitments to our district and denomination: people harvested their talents to help others. We are proud to continue in that tradition, providing a great day for the community, and contributing to the ministries of the United Methodist Church, and supporting a local ministry as well. This year, 10% of our proceeds will go to Oaks Ministry (www.oxfordoaksministry.com).
Just as God sent Jesus Christ into the world not to live for himself, but to give himself for others, we believe that we are invited by God to live in the same manner: not for ourselves, but others. That is the narrow path that Jesus says leads to eternal life. So as we harvest what God has blessed us with, it is not meant to fill our own storehouses, but others’. Are you harvesting only for yourself? That might explain while you still feel empty.
