Giving God Glory for the first week of the summer ministry!
Harvest served at Quest Camp, Fig/Twigs, Midwest Mission Distribution Center and in Freeburg, IL.
For 2016, several team members will be participating in ministry at camps and churches. These were the teams and a synopsis of each event for the first week:
Quest Camp is the kids camp for Troy United Methodist Church. Quest is hosted at Lake Sallateeska in Nashville, IL for three days. It was a great group of children and adults (attendance doubled from last year), incredible weather and a great event. Harvest led music, speaking and small groups. The team for the event was Emily Gray, Leanne Willis, Trenton Gonzalez and Tim Price. A big thanks to Natalie Carlson, Troy UMC Director of Children’s Ministry for her leadership. See Quest Pictures
FIGS / TWIGS:
We had the opportunity to lead music for the FIGS program in Granite City, IL. Some people may know of TWIGS which is a summer lunch program for kids. FIGS happens on a regular basis and reaches out to seniors. It was a full house, a great lunch and we enjoyed sharing music afterwards. The team was Blake Stahlhut, Leanne Willis and Tim Price.

Friday and Saturday of last week were invested serving along side the middle school students and leaders from Troy UMC at Midwest Mission Distribution Center in Chatham, IL. In the evening, Harvest led worship, devotions and games. During the days, we helped unload 3000 pounds of school supplies and health kids, sorted them, worked with bikes, sewing machines and more! Thanks to Kurt Stone and his leadership in student ministry. The Harvest Team was Leanne Willis, Clint Benesh and Tim Price. [see pictures from MMDC]
On Sunday night, we were invited to share music in Freeburg, Illinois Concerts in the Park. For this particular evening, it was me (Tim Price) and my daughters Ruby and Macy. It also happened to be my birthday that day – so it was really fun to spend an evening singing a bunch of music with my family and it seemed everyone in attendance had a great time. Thanks to Betty and The Sanctuary Church for inviting us to sing!
STAY IN TOUCH THIS SUMMER…
