Harvest Day 2019
Sunday, October 13, 10:00am
As always, our Annual Harvest Day promises to be very special!!
Through the years, the makeup of Blowing Rock and the church has changed. These days our Winter months, with all of the snow activities, are just as busy as the summer. While we still have many summer residents that leave in the fall for the winter, the church now has a stable, year round attendance and ministry. We still take up a special "Harvest Day" offering but instead of supplementing the budget, we use this special offering for projects around the church. In the past the Harvest Day offering has helped us purchase new vans, fund our worship center stage and sound renovations, support our missions school in the Dominica Republic, and assist in the cost of painting and updating the main education hall, the church office, installing new lights in the worship center and new signage around the facility.
On this special day we will start off with our Worship Service at 10:00am and then the other highlight of the day is
our "Dinner on the Grounds".
We ask everyone to bring a side dish and a
dessert and the church provides the meat, drinks, and paper goods. We
fill every room in the church with tables as well as setting up two
tents outside to accommodate the crowds. Harvest Day is the "KING" of all
"covered dish" fellowships and if there is one thing that Baptists have
mastered it is "Dinner on the Grounds". You will be able to sample some
of the best desserts that the high country has to offer as well as enjoy some
great fellowship. This meal is a great opportunity for folks from the church to fellowship and get to know each other better.
Visitors and Guest are welcome and everyone
is encouraged to invite a friend. Since we must set up the entire church
to accommodate the meal, we will have no other activities, small groups
or Sunday School classes that morning. Mark your calendar now and help
us get the word out about this very special day in the life of First
