At Harvest, the best way to get involved is by joining a Community Group – small groups that meet in homes for encouragement, prayer, and studying God’s word. In addition to Community Groups, there are other groups that meet for various purposes and durations, whether for prayer, study, conversation, service, or recreation. Examples of ways to serve include helping with children’s ministry, youth, music, work projects, hosting groups, local outreach and global missions, social and food events, and various tasks that support our Sunday gatherings.
We look forward to knowing you, growing and serving with you as we share Christ’s love!
Harvest Life is a new interactive introductory small group where people who have been at Harvest for any length of time and are in any walk of life gather together for 9 weeks and get to know each other and get to know Harvest. Each evening will be both intentionally relational and focus on discussion-based teaching that communicates what we believe and why, and who Harvest is within the body of Christ. We would love for everyone at Harvest to go through this eventually, and we especially encourage those who are new to sign up because it’s a great way for you to get to know Harvest and for us to get to know you! Contact the office or talk to anyone on staff if you have questions. The next group will be on Tuesday evenings beginning April 9th.
Cultivate Groups will meet for 8 weeks to read through and discuss a book together. The goal of these groups is to sustain and continue growth in Jesus while discussing various topics of Christian living. We currently have two groups meeting. Stay tuned for information on the next round and the books we'll be reading.
The purpose of Community Groups at Harvest is to more fully share our life in Christ together than what can take place in an hour or two in our Sunday gatherings. Jesus designed His body, the church, to live the life He has given us in community together. In other words, don't try to live the Christian life alone! Most Community Groups consist of about 8-12 people. Groups share in applying God's word, share in caring for one another and meeting one another's needs, sharing meals together, and praying together (Acts 2:42-47). Please contact the Harvest office or a Community Group leader for more information, or just show up at a group! Some groups take a break in the summer, so please call the office to find out more information.
