WE HONOR OUR VETERANS THIS MONTH
The Following essay by Scarlett Hillis, 5th grade, won 1st place at Benjamin Franklin Performing Arts School in this years’ Veterans Essay Contest:
The biggest sacrifices veterans have made for this country do not just happen on the battlefield. They happen quietly, without fanfare, without recognition. They happen in small homes and living rooms, with only those who are left behind as witnesses. Everything a veteran must do is a sacrifice, from leaving behind their lives, to stepping onto the battlefield. The sacrifice of time is just as important as their bravery shown in war, and oftentimes much more difficult. These sacrifices are what make veterans special.
Veterans became veterans because they possessed the honor, bravery and patriotism that they needed to stand up for their country. These men and women represent everything that we as a nation fight to protect, everything we treasure in life.
They do not pledge themselves to us simply because it is their duty. They have a strong belief that this country is worth fighting for, they voluntarily step forward to defend freedom, our rights, and our beloved nation.
ANCHOREDFaith Harvest is anchored to the unchanging Word of God and to the Living Christ. Our objective is to stand true to the eternal truths of His Word in the midst of a world that is constantly seeking to redefine truth. The goal of each service is to glorify Christ and to lift up His Word that it might challenge every heart to find refuge in Him.
SPIRIT EMPOWEREDMinistry cannot be performed in the strength of the individual. We believe in the words of Jesus “You can do nothing apart from Me”. He is the Head of the Church and we seek to do nothing apart from His leading and empowerment. In order to do that we need complete dependence upon Him and the fullness of His Spirit.
BALANCEDIn our desire to be Radical for Christ, sometimes it’s easy to become unbalanced. We seek to balance discipleship in the Word with a personal experience of God through the Holy Spirit. We seek to balance the teaching of Grace with God’s call to holiness and obedience. And we seek to balance love with strength.
AWAREAt FHC we are aware that difficult times are drawing near. Jesus said that we should be able to read the signs and know what He is saying. We are aware of the very real probability of coming persecution and seek to prepare believers. We are aware of current trends which seek to destroy the church and we are aware of the great calling to be His ambassadors in perilous times.
Young Timothys 2018
Young Timothys meet every month to study the Word of God and enjoy games and fellowship together under the leadership of Pastor Maggie Hillis. Young Timothys is for any child too old for Harvest Kids and not yet entering the Youth group. At present there are two but very soon there will be several more graduating from Harvest Kids and joining them. Please take time to enjoy our slideshow of recent activities.
Youth Activity at "Feed my Starving Children"
Faith Harvest Youth, led by Michael and Leah Smith, participated in the ministry Feed My Starving Children in April 2018, by helping to create bags of dried food to be sent to the Phillipines. They were joined by the Young Timothys. The activity involved layering precisely measured rice, vitamins, soy and dehydrated vegetables in bags to be shipped overseas; this particular day the bags would be sent to the Phillipines.
