For over one hundred years, Falcon Children’s Home has been providing a home for children who, for whatever reason, are unable to live with their parents. Established in 1909, it has been estimated that approximately ten thousand lives have been either directly or indirectly touched by the various programs offered by Falcon Children’s Home.
In 2008, CEO Joseph Leggett and his wife, Sharon, arrived at Falcon Children’s Home to begin the journey of a lifetime. Together, they are making a difference in the lives of the children entrusted to their care. What a great ministry the IPHC has in Falcon, NC.
Are you making plans for Harvest Train 2016? It’s time to put the wheels in motion. The children sing a song, “The wheels on the bus go round, round, round, round, round, round, the wheels on the bus go round, round, round all day long”. With fall in motion, children in school, and all kinds of activities going on in our lives, our days will seem short. What better time than now to begin making plans for Harvest Train?
The Harvest Train offering provides for this institution, but more importantly, ministers to the children who come through their doors. Harvest Train offerings, like any other special ministry offering, may be collected throughout the year. However, it will be presented annually at the Harvest Train.
Each year, Falcon Children’s Home hosts this special event on Tuesday before Thanksgiving. This year, it will fall on Tuesday, November 22nd. Churches will bring monetary offerings and commodities on that day. Hundreds will gather from the different conferences within the IPHC for this exciting event. To kick off the Harvest Train activities, you are invited to decorate an automobile and participate in the parade that travels around Falcon and the Children’s Home on Tuesday morning. Come see what God is doing in the lives of children and women at Falcon. The Royal Home is doing a special presentation this year. Don’t miss it!
The Conference Women’s Ministries Directors will formally present their conference’s gifts at the Harvest Train service, which features a special program presented by the children and staff.
The children are already preparing a great program for our enjoyment. I have an inside source that tells me this year is going to be the “best ever”. Don’t miss this blessing; let’s get “The Wheels in Motion”. On your mark, get ready, set, GO!
