"Celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the first fruits of the crops you sow in your field. Celebrate the Festival of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in your crops from the field."
- Exodus 23:16
Austin Christian Fellowship of India celebrates Harvest Festival every year. The Harvest Festival gives everyone an opportunity to thank God in a small way for the big wonders he has done in their lives. Historically, the Harvest Festival proceeds were used to support Missions/Missionaries, as it is one of the three core tenets of ACFI along with Prayer and Children’s Ministry. However, with the growing needs of our congregation, the funds from last year were divided between Missions and the Church Building fund. The same will be adhered to this year. The daylong festival features entertainment for all ages. Volunteers dedicate their best to God and donate the proceeds.
The event is free to all and you are encouraged to bring in friends and colleagues to the event.
The event starts at 2:30 pm with Food stalls offering all kinds of ethnic dishes from every corner of India. For our guests who can't handle too much "curry", we also have Continental style foods. We have enough variety to serve both our vegetarian and non-vegetarian guests alike. Kids may enjoy playing in the many of the game booths.
This will be followed by our auction with the items that include, but are not limited to handicrafts, paintings, gift items, decorations, toys and many others.
This event is aimed at giving children and adults an opportunity to give back to God what He has graciously given to us. Join us this year and become a part of the celebration of the Harvest Festival.
