Operation Christmas Child

OCCGenericBanner.jpg

A project of Samaritan's Purse, shoebox gifts are filled with age-appropriate items for boys and girls around the world, which then opens doors for evangelism and a connection to the local churches.

Instructions will be available on the missions table. This is an excellent opportunity for youth and children to get involved in a meaningful mission! Plus, you can track where your shoebox goes! 

Please see Sandy McRae for additional information.

Salvation Army Mobile Canteen

Feed the hungry.  Jesus commands you (Matthew 25:31-46).

The second Wednesday of every month from 5:15 until 7:00pm, is an occasion for you to "work out your own salvation" (Philippians 2:12) in obedience to Jesus Christ.

The Salvation Army's Mobile Canteen (a complete kitchen on wheels) travels to various stops in Huntsville to provide meals for the needy and homeless.  The Canteen operates every day, rain or shine, and Harvest Pointe has the responsibility for its operation on the second Wednesday of the month.  Harvest Pointe is also an "on call" church when there is an unscheduled need to operate the canteen.

Three or four volunteers are required, one of whom is registered as a Salvation Army driver.  Personnel meet at the Community Kitchen/Emergency Shelter located at 305 Seminole Drive in Huntsville at 5:15pm, and proceed to three designated locations to serve free meals to neighbors in need.  Typically 50 to 75 meals are served, and the mission is completed by about 7pm.

This is a very rewarding experience, for adults and older youth.  To volunteer for a particular date, or as a stand-by volume, or for more information about this program, contact Kerry Lawrence or Pete Davidoski.

Vacation Bible School

Each summer Harvest Pointe provides a VBS, not only for our own children, but as an outreach to our local community.  Our primary purpose is to share Jesus Christ with children, but it invariably reaches adults as well! VBS is held during the evening hours for the benefit of working parents. Stay tuned! Dates TBD for 2018.
