We had an amazing Sunday. As you can see from the stats posted, we had 359,000 people watch our webcast of “Harvest At Home”. That number is realistically much larger because in many cases, families and groups are watching together. I have heard from many of them. Best of all, we had 3,188 people make professions of faith to follow Jesus Christ! If you combine that with last week’s webcast, that means we have had 5000 people give their lives to Jesus Christ in the last two weeks. God is at work despite COVID-19. Remember to pray for us at Harvest and remember to support us financially as we respond to perhaps the greatest evangelistic opportunities of our entire ministry. To support Harvest, go to donate.harvest.org (link in bio).
Also, the number of people worshipping Christ keeps growing.
“Best of all, we had 3,188 people make professions of faith to follow Jesus Christ. If you combine that with last week’s webcast, that means we have had 5,000 people give their lives to Jesus Christ,” Laurie said.
As the cases of COVID-19 are increasing, Harvest Christian Fellowship Church is showing attention and support for people by giving them the opportunity to test COVID-19 by the drive-through.
The church also posted in a Facebook post, “Harvest is pleased to have been chosen as one of the drive-thru testing spots for COVID-19 testing. We want to be as helpful as we can during this difficult season and this opportunity is allowing us to do that.”
