At Harvest you can expect to be yourself (even if you are not perfect).
God knows you for who you are and He loves you just the way you are. You couldn’t put on a facade for Him if you wanted to. You don’t need to put on a facade here. Being who we are is critical to our success in our spiritual journey. That is reflected in our unofficial dress code: “Your comfort is our dress code.” If you are a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, be that here. If you are in your element when you are dressed to the 9’s then dress up. To be real with God we need to be real about who we are.
Our music is a reflection of who we are. Typically our music is a blend of old and new music. Some of it was written before any of us were born and some is from the 21st century.
Our worship time includes a weekly reflection time called communion. In this time we reflect on Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. We do this by eating a special bread, Jesus called Himself the bread of life, and drink from a cup, Jesus described His death as a cup. Communion is not for Harvest members alone, but for anyone who is a follower of Jesus.
Part of the life of a disciple is the privilege of sharing. We do this in our offering time; a collection plate is passed around and people share as God has blessed them. We do not pressure anyone to give. We ask for folks to give if they love the act of giving.
The greatest book in all of history is the Bible. Every week we take time to look into the Bible in depth and find application for our lives. At the end of the sermon there is a moment of personal reflection in which we try to find application of the Bible’s truth to our lives.
Childcare is available for children ages birth through per-kindergarten in a loving, clean, and safe environment. Toddlers and preschoolers will also enjoy a short lesson and activity.
Elementary children are dismissed right before the sermon for age-appropriate lessons and activities in Children’s Church. If you are more comfortable keeping your children with you during the service, please feel free to do so.
