Harvest Ministries in Wadesboro will host its annual Show the Love and Community Connections Month beginning Feb. 5.
Each Sunday, Harvest will spend time recognizing agencies and individuals who play key roles in developing local communities.
“Someone once said, without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community,” Steve Adams, lead pastor of Harvest, said.
“This month is about showing local community agencies and officials that we appreciate their service, commitment and dedication to Anson County,” Adams added. “Many people have paved, and are still paving, the way for this local area, and we value their efforts and hard work.”
Adams emphasized that all month long, different groups from Harvest will be out in communities “Showing the Love” through various projects such as:
• Holding a neighborhood clean up/cook out
• Distributing free groceries in the community
• Giving goody bags to local nursing facilities, and more
In addition the following events will take place:
• 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 12 – Law enforcement/Fire/EMS Appreciation Day.
• 10:30 a.m. Sunday Feb. 19 – Black history celebration.
10:30 a.m. Sunday Feb. 26 – Education/Teacher Appreciation Day
There will be special guests, presentations and more at each event.
Adams invites all to attend the special services to show their appreciation for those who serve.
He echoed the words of Psalm 133:1.
“‘How pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity,’” he said. “There is no better way to show the love of Christ than by people coming together for the greater good of those who serve.”
The desire of Harvest is that as many as possible of the community’s local law enforcement officials, fire department personnel, EMS staff, principals, teachers and education officials attend these events to allow for proper recognition of their service.
