The reach of God is present in the services Kings Harvest provides. As stated by Anne McVey, "God loves every person that passes through our doors, no matter how broken." God's love is readily apparent by the strong community support and number of volunteers.

King's Harvest provides an array of services for the poor and homeless in the Quad Cities. The services include, but not limited to, the serving of hot meals, maintaining a food bank, shelter for homeless men and women in the winter, shelter for up to 10 single mothers with children are available year round, and pet assistance for the poor and homeless (Food, spay/neutering and housing when King's Harvest is sheltering the owners). King's Harvest is hoping to expand their services to reach more people in need.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
