-Sunday Worship. We invite you to join us in-person for one of our two Sunday services. Alpha and Omega services are both in-person while we live-stream our Omega Service. Alpha is geared towards those who are serving in different ways during Omega Service.
-New Year 333 Prayer. As we move into May, we have two more months for this round of 333 Prayer before refreshing our prayer topics in July. We are incorporating a new prayer habit this year as we are seeking to pray three times a day, for three minutes each time, for three areas (our church, your house church/family, and personal/family). We have been praying for these same topics for the first six months of the year before submitting new requests for the second half of the year. The aim is that we would develop a daily habit of praying throughout the day, in addition to praying at set times daily.
-Newcomers Lunch. A newcomers lunch will be held on Sunday, June 4 for those who began attending Harvest this year. If you started attending Harvest in the past year or if we have yet to have the privilege of hosting you for one of our newcomer's lunches, we would love to have you join us.

A church’s purpose is to make disciples by connecting with unbelievers, bringing the gospel to them, welcoming them into the church, and then teaching them to obey the teaching of Christ. Disciples will then repeat that cycle with others. The New Testament Church did this as they met in homes where believers were discipled and non-believers experienced the power of the gospel lived out. We are not a church WITH house churches; we are a church OF house churches. House churches are the heartbeat of our congregation. They look inward, upward, and outward and go hand-in-hand with Sunday worship and our spiritual formation classes (Harvest 101, 201, etc.) as the 3-axes of our ministry. To get plugged in, talk to Rick Terrell (email@example.com)
