Bolstering our Smaller Churches - Over the past two years, HarvestCall's Church Establishment Committee (CEC) has worked to bolster our St. Louis, MO and Austin, TX churches. God has done exceedingly, abundantly above all that we asked or thought. Brothers and sisters have answered the call to move, and the outreach into the community has become far more effective. HarvestCall is now focusing on Lamar and trusting God for an increase.  If you have an interest in how you can help bolster the Lamar Church, additional information is attached to the e-mail.

Funeral Coordinator - There is a need for someone to serve as Funeral Coordinator.  The first year you would serve as assistant followed by a year of serving as the Funeral Coordinator.  The Funeral Coordinator’s basic duty is to coordinate the funeral meal, lining up food and workers, which has been greatly simplified with One Call Now.  They also help oversee the kitchen the day of the funeral.  This is an opportunity for someone to serve the Church body in a special way.  Anyone who feels lead to provide this support or for further information please contact Bro. Denny or Sis. Eva Rocke.
