AG IN THE CLASSROOM
THE HARVEST

Family Friendly:  nothing scary and plenty of fun
for all ages!
All Saint's Eve

Historically, October 31st began as a Christian celebration.    
On that same night, October 31st, these prayer warriors
would place a candle in their window to notify people in need,  
that  they could come to receive free clothing and food.

The following day, November 1st (All Saints Day)  those
dedicated Christian laborers would go out and actively share
the Good News of their Christian faith.  

Throughout history, and throughout the world, Christians
have had slight variations on this theme, however one thing
remains constant in those historic tales - that is the gathering
of Christian believers in prayer and in service to others.  

May our porch lights, this holiday season, shine brightly as a
beacon of hope for all. If you are in need, be it for clothes,
food, or a night of prayer, you are welcome.

This positive tradition can be followed any time of the year.
What a positive reminder of our history and mission!  

Pray together and  labor the fields together.  
The field is ripe for the harvest.

May our celebrations be such a witness to the resurrection of
Christ!

throughout history, here is a link to Wikipedia information.

In Genesis Chapter 1 God details how He created the earth, and everything in it.  He is the Creator of all plants and
all animals. Creator of squash,  pumpkins, gourds, corn, and straw!  And people can use these.

We can choose to use His plants to bring glory to His name.  

At the Pumpkin Festival we teach that God made the pumpkin, that it is a healthy vegetable, as well as a colorful fall
decoration.  God has blessed us with these wonderful vegetables, that keep well in winter time and provide important
nutrition.  The pilgrims and early settlers of America were grateful to have pumpkins to eat, and other things did not
store well. Pumpkins were a dietary mainstay...and were part of the Thanksgiving tradition from the start!  

Here, at Shepherd's Cross, we thank the Lord for the harvest of vegetables of every conceivable variety.  God is the
author of the harvest.  Join us in rejoicing in the bounty of His blessings!

Look for our pumpkin recipes when you come to the patch this year.  There are many uses for this wonderful
vegetable, and we sell all kinds for both decoration and delicious pies, breads, soups...even snacks!

The Pumpkin Festival is a fun & educational experience.
