The Harvest

Home > Pastor's Blog > The Harvest

 

In the late spring I began training to teach a Child Evangelism Fellowship Good News Club. Over the summer a local Elementary school opened its doors to this after school program. Our first club meeting was September 15 and we had 29 in attendance including 3 teachers. I was very excited! The kids are respectful and very well behaved, they really listen to the Bible teaching and are enthusiastic about all the other activities. September 22 came along, our 2nd GNC (Good News Club) meeting. As I was preparing the Bible Study that morning for the afternoon GNC, I had a call that my wife had fallen and was heading to the hospital in the ambulance. She passed out, fell , broke her arm and gave herself a concussion at work! I obviously couldn’t make it to the GNC meeting that afternoon. We had 52 in attendance and 2 teachers plus another person called in to help! This week we were down a bit and only had 46 and 3 teachers. As you can see we need more workers!

 

Here at FBC Espanola we are getting ready for the October 31 Harvest Festival. This is an annual event that is well attended by the community. We need workers for the games as well as people to mix and mingle with our guests and let them know that Jesus loves them and so does our church! Since we typically get from 150-250 people attending we need lots of workers!

 

At present FBC Espanola has 1 teacher in our children’s area for Sunday School. We need individuals to step up and commit to teaching in the Sunday School. When the kids and families from the GNC or Harvest Festival start coming we will soon be overwhelmed. What a great problem to have!

 

Jesus had an answer to this type of Problem. Jesus tells us in Matthew 9:36-38,“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” We need earnest prayer for more workers!

 

Will you commit to pray for workers? Will you commit to pray for the Good News Club, The Harvest Festival and the teaching of God’s word every Sunday morning in small group? Will you commit to pray that God’s Spirit will bring revival to Espanola! Will you attend the Harvest Festival and help wherever you are needed? Let’s seek God daily in prayer as His Body, The Church!
