What is Lord's Acre? In the days of western expansion in the United States, it was often the custom of local farmers to donate to their church the harvest – or proceeds from the harvest – of one of their acres of crop land. Thus was born the concept of the Lord's Acre, which we build upon today. It is an amazing event that fosters congregational unity as well as raises funds for the church. We will use the proceeds from the sale of the many handcrafted and donated items given to our Lord's Acre to support ongoing ministries and missions of our church as well as our community.
