Praying for Harvest Church today as they have a joint service out at Amhurst in Albemarle. Harvest on Hwy 52 and Harvest@Amhurst will be worshipping together as one body under a big tent that has been rented. Church is not a word that describes a building; Church is an action of going out to be Jesus and show Jesus to those around us, those in our nation, and to those in every nation!
Harvest Church has been holding Tuesday night services at Harvest@Amhurst at 6:30pm since July 12th. Amhurst is where God has specifically called us to. We are bound and determined to fulfill the will of God there and to show that community that God loves them as much as He loves us. Read more about the Tuesday night services here.
For those that are not familiar with Amhurst, Amhurst is an area in Albemarle, NC that is known for drugs and violence. Harvest Church believes that Jesus Christ is bigger than that! We believe that God can change that community to be known as a place where people love the Lord. God is a Healer, Restorer, Provider, and Savior!
Two Harvest Church congregations to worship together
Harvest Church, located at 24238 U.S. 52 S., Albemarle, holds special services in the Amhurst area of Albemarle.
According to Pastor Bill Baldwin, Harvest Church is making an effort to plant an outreach church in Amhurst.
Baldwin, members of the church band, other members of Harvest Church and members of the Amhurst community gather on Tuesday evenings at a ball field to share a message, praise music, prayers and refreshments.
“It’s been a real good thing,” Baldwin said.
Harvest Church plans to purchase land in the area for a permanent church building in the future.
This Sunday, Harvest Church’s Sunday morning crowd and Tuesday evening crowd are coming together for a special service.
“We’re putting both of our congregations together this Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m.,” Baldwin said.
“It’s going to be a good day. We’re going to worship together.”
Both Harvest Church groups will gather on the ball field near Bell Avenue in the Amhurst area.
“We’ve rented a tent,” Baldwin said.
“I’ve never done a tent meeting in my life, so this is going to be interesting.”
The special service will include worship time, praise music led by Harvest Church’s band and a picnic afterward.
