Harvest Community Church of Huntersville
Sunday Service | March 28, 2021
If you walk into the equipment room for a college football team, you will see LOTS of uniforms, shoes and equipment that helps prepare the team for their task. God left an important task to the church, and today’s message from Acts 2:1-13 pictures the Day of Pentecost as “God’s equipment room.”
