MOC Show the Love Month and Community Connections

Starting Sunday, February 5, Harvest Ministries in Wadesboro will be hosting the annual Show the Love and Community Connections Month. Each Sunday Harvest will spend time recognizing agencies and individuals who play key roles in developing our communities. Lead Pastor of Harvest Steve Adams shared, Someone once said, without a sense of caring there can be no sense of community. This month is about showing local community agencies and officials that we appreciate their service, commitment and dedication to Anson County. Many people have paved the way, 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: Neighborhood clean up / Cook out; Free groceries in the community; Goody bags to local nursing racilities; and more!

Adams echoed the words of Psalm 133:1, How pleasant it is when Gods people live together in unity. There is no better way to show the love of Christ than by people coming together for the greater good of those who serve.
