Community-Church Partnership

Harvest collaborates and cultivates relationships with community organizations providing support and sharing God’s love with our neighbors.

 

Food Ministries

Food insecurity has increased significantly during these difficult and uncertain times. The people of Harvest, in collaboration with the people of Rogers Community United Methodist Church, serve at community drive-through food pantries and with their financial support.

 

Habitat for Humanity

Harvest supports Habitat for Humanity by providing work crews during new home builds and financial support. Members of Harvest’s Journeymen small group also help renovate homes for veterans.
 

Bridge a Life

Bridge a Life provides services and training opportunities to help adoptive and foster parents Harvest offers space for monthly gatherings as well as volunteers to help watch children while adults attend meetings.
 

Samaritan Counseling Services of the Gulf Coast

Harvest champions Samaritan Counseling with financial gifts for its annual golf tournament and by hosting an Advent dinner. It is our honor to pray for counselors and those seeking the counseling services of Samaritan Counseling on a regular basis.
 

Turning Points

Men’s and women’s groups from Harvest have supported Turning Points, a non-profit assisting those who are homeless or at risk at becoming homeless in Manatee County. Both groups have provided generous donations for a new roof or provided backpacks for homeless vets.

 

Disaster Response

When disaster occurs locally or globally, Harvest supports the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church, with its gifts and service. Learn more about the UMCOR’s projects at https://umcmission.org/umcor/.
 
Additionally, Harvest continues to explore new paths to turn love outward by being the hands and feet of the body of Christ in our community and supporting others while sharing the love of God.
