Farmers drive equipment to church for blessing

Grace Lutheran Church pastor Ken Hollis even sported a John Deere shirt as he lead the service. The parking lot was lined with 15 tractors and combines.

Members of Grace Lutheran church in Jackson Center know this harvest is going to be challenging. They held a harvest blessing service on Sunday morning outside the church. Farmer parishioners drove their tractors and combines to church.  A service was held inside the church and then more than 215 people gathered outside around the equipment for the special service that prayed for blessings on the harvest and farmers and for their safety this harvest season.

After the service the Jackson Center FFA held a breakfast that raised over $500.

The church hopes to make this an annual service each fall.

Lots of children were probably bribed in church with "if your good during church you'll be able to get in the tractors outside afterwords."
