It’s time for the Harvest of Love! The Harvest of Love is an annual campaign in our local community (Newton and surrounding Harvey County) to raise funds and food to stock the food pantry located at Salvation Army, 208 W. 6th Street in Newton.
The Harvest of Love campaign runs during November and December, and is co-sponsored by the Salvation Army and the Newton Ministerial Alliance. Local congregations, individuals, schools, businesses and other organizations are encouraged to contribute financial contributions and non-perishable food to support the pantry. These food supplies provide groceries for hungry families and individuals in our community.
At Bethel College Mennonite Church, we support the food pantry throughout the year, by collecting non-perishable food items on the first Sunday of the month. (Just bring items to worship, and put them on the front pew under the balcony in the sanctuary, and a member of the congregation will take them to Salvation Army). During the season of Advent (November 30 – December 28) food items will be collected weekly at BCMC as our Advent giving project. Financial contributions should be made out to “Harvest of Love” and sent to Salvation Army at 208 W. 6th St., Newton, KS 67114.
Let’s all join in the Harvest of Love!
