All good gifts around us
A celebration of God's care and provision
An opportunity to express thanks to the staff
This done in order to contribute to a local church Harvest Festival Service.
Arrangements done in the home are taken to the church.
If possible, it would be good if a couple of residents could be enabled to attend the service.
The flowers are then returned to the home with some photos of them at the church.
On the right arrangements are made at The Grove for Christ Church. They will be returned for The Grove's own harvest festival.
Returning to the Grove the following week we had a short harvest celebration - 'All good gifts around us' identified those who care for us being God's gift and ourselves being a gift to others.
God's faithfulness - his promise to Noah that 'seedtime and harvest will never cease'.
Exodus offers instruction to observe the harvest - a regular celebration.
The Gospel message is of few labourers for the harvest, which is people.
Galatians offers the fruit of the Holy Spirit, which is about what we offer to others as gift.
