I love that church-- God's church-- a church where He sends His children. Years ago God told my dad who is the pastor that this was going to be a church where He would build a family of faith. This isn't a church of programs. Nobody planned an outreach ministry to bring the neighborhood children in. God brought them. He sent them through the front doors, where He knew there was a congregation of 5 adults who would show these kids the love of Christ. I love belonging to a church with people like that-- people God can trust to be His messengers, His hands and His feet in their community. I want to be a part of that. I want to be a person like that!

In the harvest field now ripened
There's a work for all to do;
Hark! the voice of God is calling
To the harvest calling you.
Chorus: Little is much when God is in it!
Labor not for wealth or fame.
There's a crown and you can win it,
If you go in Jesus' Name.
In the mad rush of the broad way,
In the hurry and the strife,
Tell of Jesus' love and mercy,
Give to them the Word of Life.
Does the place you're called to labor
Seem too small and little known?
It is great if God is in it,
And He'll not forget His own.
Are you laid aside from service,
Body worn from toil and care?
You can still be in the battle,
In the sacred place of prayer.
When the conflict here is ended
And our race on earth is run,
He will say, if we are faithful,
"Welcome home, My child well done!"
