Harvest Season Worship Services

This is a time Churches show solidarity to those who produce food, especially those in our U.S. food systems that work in unhealthy conditions or in exploitative work cultures. We can also stand with those who are hungry, and distribute the harvest donations we have collected among charitable organizations.

Harvest Season Worship Services

Liturgy honoring harvest is a celebration of the food that is grown on the land.

Many in our communities this season are delighting in the produce from gardens large and small, while others are preoccupied with getting the barley cut, the beets out and the hay baled. Liturgy honoring harvest is a celebration of the food that is grown on the land. Such celebration is related to ancient practices of acknowledging the first fruits of the season, as well as supporting the most labor-intensive season for farming communities before mechanization. 


And, of course, the US national holiday of Thanksgiving also occurs as harvests are coming to completion, and the season of autumn is in full swing.

It can be a time churches show solidarity to those who produce food, especially those in our U.S. food systems that work in unhealthy conditions or in exploitative work cultures. We can also stand with those who are hungry, and distribute the harvest donations we have collected among charitable organizations.
