Annual Men's Camp

In our busy lives we can easily miss the opportunity as men to really connect with each other. And being part of a bigger church can also limit the depth of our relationships, as we tend to move within our same circles of familiar comfort. But it’s important that we’re connected to other Christian guys, to help bring out the best in each other, and shape us into becoming the men of God we have been made to be. 
What this camp really aims to do is simply connect brothers in Christ meaningfully – around the braai, along a walk, over a conversation, or during a time of ministry – the “how” is not nearly as important as the “what.” Which is why you should join. God just might have a divine appointment planned with you in mind.

WHEN: Fri 8 – Sun 10 March

A Harvest Christmas Outreach Operation
For 20 years Harvesters have filled shoeboxes with goodies at Christmastime for disadvantaged and sometimes forgotten children in the remote community of Thornhill and also PE’s Northern Areas.
During Covid this just wasn’t practical, so we asked Harvesters to instead of filling shoeboxes, rather please consider giving R100 towards the same cause, so that as a church we could then make up and deliver hampers of food and toys for children and families in need over Christmas.
Well, thanks to the kind hearted generosity of so many Harvesters, the smiles on the beautiful faces of those who received these gifts were just as big as ever! So we’ve decided to continue with this new simpler tradition of asking Harvesters to each consider giving R100 (or even R1000 if you’re resourced to bless that much) towards those less privileged at Christmastime.

Please would you consider continuing to be a part of this wonderful Harvest tradition by contributing R100 or R1000 into our:
HARVEST MISSIONS POOR FUND
Standard Bank Account no. 061440418
Branch Code: 050417
Please mark your transfer HUNDREDS & THOUSANDS

God bless you for being a blessing to others!
