November 18 – December 30, 2018

‘The Lord will indeed give you what is good,
and our land will yield its harvest.’

Psalm 85:12

The Gallery at Bethel announces ‘Harvest’, a photography contest and exhibition showcasing the different ways that God’s bountiful blessings are apparent in each of our lives. Entrance into the exhibition is open to anyone ages 15 and up wishing to present a photograph celebrating God’s blessings in the autumn of the year as we celebrate harvest in our agriculturally centered community. Whether or not you come from a farming background, this season is often a time to reflect on God’s blessings and goodness during the previous year. Bountiful blessings may look to you like long days in the field, or afternoons in the kitchen canning and preserving the fruits from a summer garden. If you live in town, it may look like a morning visit to the Red River Market downtown. A bounty of blessings may be the sight of all of your children crowded on your spouse’s lap to read a book, or a small group of your closest friends meeting at a coffee shop early in the morning to study God’s word. This aim of this exhibition is to visually celebrate and praise God for all that He has given us. Application is open to anyone-you do not have to be a member or regular attender of Bethel Church to participate. ‘Harvest’ will be on display from November 18 – December 30.

Applications are available ONLINE or at the front desk, and any and all questions should be directed Gretchen Barker – gretchenbarker@bethelfc.com or call 701.232.4476.
