Merry Christmas from Harvest Ministry Teams!
FROM TIM PRICE
Christmas is everywhere and it all points to Jesus. The immense celebration points to the story of God sending Jesus, Emmanuel. God with us. And this advent season is also a reminder that Jesus is coming again. It’s why we invest in serving through ministries like Harvest and we give God all glory and thanks. We hope his letter finds you and your family celebrating the world’s greatest miracle.
28 YEARS IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS
The first event for Harvest was June of 1996. Since that time, we have served in hundreds of churches, camps, conferences, retreats, and events with thousands of children and students.
We’re grateful for the opportunity we’ve had to sink deep into this region for the sake of the Gospel. To each supporter, thank you for helping send Harvest Teams to share the love of Christ. To those who have attended events, thanks for allow us to be part of your lives and praying that you are following Jesus each day! To those who have served with Harvest in leadership, we are grateful for the friendship and for the investment of your gifts in ministry. And for pastors, church staff, and ministry leaders – thanks for inviting us to partner in ministry with you! Can’t wait for more in 2024!

Merry Christmas from the Price Family!
We’re grateful for God’s blessing and the opportunity to serve on staff in our home church and in Harvest Ministry.
Harvest slows down a bit during the Christmas Season, but we’re gearing back up for the first of several winter/spring ministry events on January 14 when we lead a Youth Rally in Highland, IL.
As Harvest takes a breather, church ministry during Christmas is full and fruitful! We’re thankful to have Ruby home from Asbury University for her break. Since she has been home she has helped lead worship in Salem, IL; played violin in the Glory of Christmas orchestra at St. Matthew Church in Belleville, IL; has sung in our church choir and participated in the Christmas Concert singing and leading a couple of special songs.
Macy was a part of the Nutcracker with her dance studio this weekend and she also portrayed Mary during a few songs of the Christmas Concert. She (and Suzanne) are also on break from home school, coops, and other activities.
We’ve had fun sharing some of Christmas music this season. You can listen to our latest recording called PRICE FAMILY CHRISTMAS FIDDLES on Youtube, Spotify, Amazon or Apple. Find out more at timpriceblog.com/christmasfiddles. In addition to that recording, we have several Christmas songs on our Facebook Page (Price Family Music).
It’s a joy for Suzanne and I to see the Lord at work in both of our daughter’s lives and we’re thankful for the many people who have been involved in that process of growth and encouragement.
Merry Christmas to you and your family! Praying for the peace, joy, and hope that comes from knowing the King of Kings fills you now and in the new year!
Tim, Suzanne, Ruby and Macy
