Many people were blessed June 23 as the Southern Indiana partners completed another successful Oneharvest distribution day! Thanks to you people all across the southern part of the state are enjoying nutritious and affordable food that they might not otherwise could afford!
A thank you to Pastor Duane Brown of Bedford First Church of the Nazarene for posting this photo of their operation on Facebook. (I pirated it to use on this post…I don’t think he will mind. LOL) I would suggest that all of you take photos of your distribution. Show them in your services after distribution and before your next order day to create excitement within your congregation. I would love to have access to them to use on this site too so anytime you take photos please email them to me as well!
John and Medena Boyd report that a church from a nearby community contacted them requesting a meeting concerning Oneharvest. It looks like they are interested in partnering with John and Medena’s church, Ft. Branch General Baptist Church, to place an order for 20 boxes or so through them. Now that’s what I’m talking about!!! Churches working together!! WOW! Good job John and Medina for “working it.”
Blessings to you all and thank you again. It’s both a blessing and an honor to work with a bunch of people who call themselves Christians and show it by their actions as well!

First, I want to thank you for all you do to make distribution to Indiana so much easier. As most of you know serving South-Central Indiana is a dream of mine and an honor as I get to work with the BEST teams around…YOU!
Progress is being made! I want to welcome the following churches to the Indiana Oneharvest family:
Embassy of Christ in Evansville taking their first order this month.
Chandler United Methodist Church in Chandler taking their first order in July.
Paoli Wesleyan Church in Paoli taking their first order in August.
Welcome to all of you!
Don’t forget, be sure to do all you can to reach outside the walls of your own church. I know there are people out there needing your help through Oneharvest Food Ministries. Be creative and find them!
If your church isn’t a partner with Oneharvest then go to www.oneharvest.com and find a church near you and order! Feel free to contact me or any of the churches in the area to get promotional material like brochures etc. You can help us get the word out even if your church doesn’t participate. PASS THE WORD!!
Have a blessed and prosperous rest of June!
Just completed another successful drop in Indiana Thanks to the Evansville area and Bedford area churches!!
In May we have another new church joining the Oneharvest family of partners. Welcome Bedford First Church of the Nazarene!! They will be joining Avoca Baptist in Avoca and Harvest Community Church in Mitchell in South-Central Indiana along with Evansville First Baptist Church and Ft. Branch General Baptist in the Southern part of the state!
Our May drop will be a little earlier than normal due to Memorial Day weekend. May 19th is this month’s drop date.
Customers may order on-line at http://www.oneharvest .com and select the church you would like to pick up from.
I am holding a Oneharvest informational meeting on the North Side of Indianapolis and would love to network with all the partners in Indiana to get some contacts in that area.
Would you please pass the information along to anyone you know that is in ministry, Pastors a church or just has a servant’s heart?

Thanks in advance for sharing this with people you know!
The first Oneharvest organizational meeting for Lawrence, Orange and surrounding counties was held Feb. 27th at the Lighthouse Christian Bookstore in Bedford. Representatives from nine different churches and one food pantry were in attendance.
Avoca Baptist Church and Stonegate Faith Center, both of Bedford, have committed to partner with Oneharvest Food Ministries and I’m sure I’ll be reporting more partner commitments in the coming days!
Avoca Baptist will be participating in the March food distribution which will be held on March 24th. Participation times and more info to come!
We are gearing up for a second Distribution Day at Sherwood Oaks Christian Church in Bloomington on Saturday, Feb. 25th. SOCC pre-orders their food to make it convenient for the public which means all you have to do is show up at Sherwood Oaks at 2700 E. Rogers Road with cash, debit or credit card and purchase $70-80 worth of groceries for $35!!
Follow the signs into the church and drive home with a box full of enough for a family of four for about a week!

Here’s some of our SOCC friends from the last Distribution Day in January…
