In the churches of the Salvation Army in Russia, a harvest festival was held. This is the time when the Salvationists thank the Lord for the fruits and harvest, for the blessings of this year and reflect on what kind of fruit they can bring themselves.
In many buildings, this holiday coincided with Self-Denial Appeal, which is held annually in the Salvation Army in support of its work and ministry around the world.
On the feast of the harvest, the Salvationists in St. Petersburg reflected on the words of Jesus: “I am the vine, and you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit” (John 15:5), thinking about what kind of fruit we bring in our lives.
In Veliky Novgorod, a colorful concert was held with children.
In Voronezh, the harvest festival was fun and also did not leave indifferent in thoughts about our fruit of spirit.
