ALTAR CALL: Much joy at harvest programme
THERE WAS NO sermon preached, but the message was quite clear: whatever a man sows, he reaps.
This was the central theme of the recent harvest programme at Fulnec Moravian Church in Watts Village, St George.
Themed Joy Of Harvest, the little ones and adults who ministered in song, poetry and drama presented a picture of unity as each item on the programme complemented the other.
The church was packed as the early evening service got under way.
Little Nakaeeya Lovell set the right mood for the harvest with her recitation titled Welcome.
The Senior Choir came next with a beautiful rendition of Ready Reapers, while Shania Lovell recited Harvest Time Is A Special Time.
Let’s All Get To Work was young Raydon’s recitation, which preceded the Sunday School Department’s presentation titled God Calls Us and Deandra’s Give God Thanks.
The dramatic presentation titled What Kind Of Harvest Will You Reap? was sweetly portrayed by Jalen and Shakur, while Geraldine Roberts sang a solo as part of her contribution to the harvest.
The Sunday School’s dramatic version of Flowers Bring Joy was also part of the entertainment.
All the men in the congregation were invited on stage to sing Bringing In The Sheaves, for which they received thunderous applause.
One of the highlights of the evening was a dramatic piece by the Sunday School titled The Boys From The Block. This depicted how the lives of four young men were drastically changed when they were invited to accept Christ and make a meaningful contribution to their community.
Reverend Dr Cicely Athill-Horsford gave a prayer of dedication of offerings followed by another presentation by the Senior Choir before the congregation burst into song with Now Thank We All Our God, bringing the curtain down on the church’s formal harvest presentation.
The congregation took time after the service to purchase treats and produce.
