Harvest Festival 2015
The Harvest Festival turns 50 this year!
This takes us back to 1965, when the Acre Hour program became known as the Harvest Festival. In the mid-50s, the Acre Hour Program gave church members the opportunity to dedicate one (or more) hours of work income to the church. Farmers and ranchers could give one acre of crop or cattle income. The program worked well and provided seed money for the property the church now owns. The Harvest Festival continues this tradition. The bulk of the proceeds from the auction go into a Church Building Fund. Also part of the day is a fellowship meal including homemade baked goods. The men’s and ladies’ groups serve the catered meal while also organizing a Silent Auction, Country Store and Children’s Activities.
