The Harvest Life Church is having a food drive during their Easter services this year, as a way to give back to the community.
According to a release, the church’s Easter services will be happening at the Hylton Memorial Chapel at 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
“The church is preparing to receive thousands of people from the surrounding community this weekend,” stated a release.
The church is partnering with Action in Community Through Service (ACTS) to coordinate the community food drive.
“Our food drives are literally making a life-changing impact in the community. It is our goal that no one goes hungry in this county and region,” stated Senior Pastor Bishop Lyle Dukes in a release.
More on the food drive, from a release:
In the past, several local shelters have had to close their doors due to lack of donations, and Harvest Life Church is rallying the community to help stock these organizations’ shelves.
They are asking that everyone bring non-perishable food items to Harvest Life Church by April 15th or to Hylton Memorial Chapel on Easter Sunday, April 16th.
The Sunday services will include a free gift for all first-time guests, musical selections from the choir, praise dancers, mimes, a Children’s Community Choir that is open to all children age 3 years through 5th grade (rehearsal is at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 15th at Hylton Memorial Chapel), a special Easter message from Bishop Lyle Dukes and more. All are welcome to attend! For more information call (703) 490-4040 or toll free at (877) 867-3853. The Hylton Memorial Chapel is located at 14640 Potomac Mills Road, Woodbridge, VA.
Harvest Life Church welcomes corporate donations for the food drive as well as its other community initiatives.
