Cold weather and the holiday season are on their way in. It's a time to remember all that Christ has done for us and to be generous as a church. We want to be looking outward to the needs of our community and world. We want you to be able to plan, pray, and prepare, so there will be 3 Ways to Give from October to December. You may be able to give to one, or you may be able to give to all three. Here's a little bit more on each month's specific outreach:
Your gifts of winter gear will help keep kids of Windsor Elementary warm as they walk to school, or allow them to be able to play in the snow during recess. You can drop items off in the bins located in the lobby any time during the month of October. The complete list of needs is below. If you would rather we shop for you, you can give online via myHarvest here.
Since our church was planted nearly 15 years ago, we have supported a small church in Shablykino, Russia. This annual collection provides a Christmas outreach for kids and their families in their community. Your gift of $25 will help provide a gift and an opportunity for a child to hear the gospel. Any time during the month of November, you can take a Star Ornament home. Hang 1 half on your tree to remember to pray for your child. Return the other half with your $25 gift (checks written out to Harvest; Immanuel's Child on the memo), and we'll send that half of the star over to Russia to be received with your gift.
You can also give $25 online through myHarvest or at the Harvest Rockford App.
Your financial gift of any amount will help provide food packs for children of District 122 during winter break that are at risk of going hungry without outside assistance. Most are part of a "backpack program" that provides food over the weekends. However, during the long winter vacation food can become sparse. These totes provide snacks and easy-to-prepare meals for children to make and eat while off from school. We provided 138 totes last year and would love to do even more this year!
Give online here through myHarvest or at the Harvest Rockford App.
