Solid Rock Church celebrates farmers

| July 21, 2014

COSHOCTON – Solid Rock Foursquare Church showed an overwhelming support and appreciation to farmers in the community with its first Farmers’ Appreciation Day on Sunday, July 20 at 1 p.m.

“We just really had a desire to show farmers in the community how much we appreciate them,” said Pastor Larry Massie. “I don’t think we do enough as a society to show how much we appreciate our farmers.”

Massie said that he hoped to have the event again next summer and wanted to invite all local farmers to attend.

“I believe as farmers in the community find out about the event, more would come and receive a blessing from us,” said Massie. “We want them to know how much we appreciate their efforts in the community.”

There were activities for the whole family including games for the kids, food provided by members of the church, ice cream and milk donated by Dairy Marketing Services, a live DJ, corn hole, volleyball, Holy Board, and good fellowship. A hayride was planned but had to be canceled due to the trails being in bad shape.

“The last thing we want is a tractor sliding,” said Massie. “We’d rather be safe than take a chance on someone getting hurt.”

Massie is hoping to make next year’s event bigger and better.

“Any farmer in the community is welcome, even people who raise food in their backyard and give to their neighbors or sell at the farmers’ market,” he said.

Solid Rock Foursquare Church has services each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. They are located at 46160 CR 55.
