What does youth group normally look like?
We exist for students to meet Jesus, grow in their relationship with Him (through Bible studies, service opportunities, discipleship, camps/retreats...), share his love in action and truth, and worship Him in everything we do.
We meet on Wednesday nights from 7-9 pm at Harvest. This group is available for students in 6th grade through their senior year of high school. Most Wednesday nights consist of teaching from the Bible, time in small groups for discussion, fun games, and time to hang out to encourage and enjoy one another.
Our volunteer youth staff is made up of adults who are committed to following Christ, attend Harvest, have a heart for youth, and have time to pour into their lives. If you're interested in working with youth, contact Matt to see what is involved or you can click here to begin your application.

Come and See
Belief in Jesus is a process. While many people believed in Jesus, we see that Jesus' constant invitation is to deepen their belief by exposing their "belief boundaries". During this series, we will primarily follow the disciples and attempt to "walk in their shoes" as we hear Jesus' invitation to them as if it were an invitation to us. We will see that this invitation always commands a response: it will either cause them to doubt or deepen their belief in Him.
The hope is that our students would hear the invitation of Jesus to "come and see" who He is, recognize where their belief in Him may be shallow, steadfast, or non-existent, and then embrace the process of Jesus exposing our belief boundaries, to ultimately fill us with a deeper belief in Him.
One of the most important goals for this next school year is to have more opportunities for students to meet in smaller groups with an adult volunteer to grow in their relationship with Christ. If you want to be part of a group like this talk to Matt or any of the staff to find out what is available.
