Christmas can be many things.  Many of those are good:  faith, family, and giving.  Some are stressful:  busy schedules, more spending and extra travel.  This Christmas, we’re remembering in a unique way what happened over 2000 years ago, in the little town of Bethlehem. A Savior was born.  He made our home his home.  Each Sunday between now and Christmas, we’ll explore the Christmas story to remind ourselves about the true Spirit of Christmas.
  • Come Home to Hope – Sunday, Dec. 10th (9:00am and 10:45am)
  • Come Home to Grace – Sunday, Dec. 17th (9:00am and 10:45am)
  • Come Home to Peace – Sunday, Dec. 24th (9:00am and 10:45am)
 

Ever wanted to experience more of God’s hand and God’s power in your life?  Through your life?  This Fall, we’re beginning a series going verse by verse through the book of Acts and we’ll explore how Jesus will create a ripple effect in your heart, changing you from the inside out.  And together with the Church, Jesus creates a ripple effect in our world, changing our church, community, region and world.  We can’t wait to see you there.  Bring a friend ( or 10) at 9:00am or 10:45am.

 
 
 
 
 
Life is strange. Our stories are sometimes strange. And frankly, some Bible stories are strange. If you think you have God all figured out, think again. Like life, God is full of surprises. Starting
Sunday, October 1st
, we’re going to explore some strange stories from the Bible —a mysterious hand appears to write on a wall—a donkey talks— a sermon kills someone — and we will discover some amazing truths. Don’t miss Sundays at Harvest Community Church at 9:00am and 10:45am.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Tweets are all the rage these days…Everybody’s got an opinion about everything.  Whether it’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat, there is no shortage of opinions in modern life.  But what about God’s opinion?  Have you ever wished Jesus would send you a short note to tell you what He wants for your life?  Bring a friend at 9:00am or 10:45am as we explore 5 short books of the Bible and discover that, indeed, God does have much to say to our lives. 

2 John – The Tweet About Truth and Love

3 John – The Tweet About Bad Influence

Philemon – The Tweet About Hurt and Forgiveness

Obadiah – The Tweet About Indifference

Jude – The Tweet About the Faith

 
 

Everyone can experience anxiety, including people who believe in and trust in Jesus.  Faith doesn’t exempt us from the pressure of this world.  But it can strengthen us to face it.  What if faith is not a magic easy button but a way to become stronger?  What if all of the things we try to pray our way out of are opportunities to become all that God wants us to be?

  • Spiritual Angst – Sunday, April 16th
  • Future Angst – Sunday, April 23rd
  • Social Angst – Sunday, April 30th
  • Financial Angst – Sunday, May 7th
  • Family Angst – Sunday, May 14th
  • And more…

Can you Trust the Faith?

We’ve all heard someone say something like “You don’t really believe the Bible, do you?” or “All religions are the same.  They all point to the same God.”   If you would like to have more confidence in your faith, and be able to have solid thoughts for kind discussions with those who disagree, bring a friend this Spring at 9:00am or 10:45am to Harvest Community Church.
 
We’ll Explore:
  • Myth:  You Can’t Trust the Bible
  • Myth:  God Won’t Give You More Than You Can Handle
  • Myth:  Jesus Was Just a Good Teacher
  • Myth:  All Religions Lead to the Same God
  • Myth:  You Can’t Take Jesus Seriously Because Christians are Just a Bunch of Judgmental Hypocrits
  • …And More

During summers, most people love to spend time at the lake.  Summer is long gone but we still long to be at the lake, hang at the lake, vacation at the lake. We come home from vacation and begin to think about when we can go back. The lake beckons us. We understand why. It’s a beautiful, soul filling kind of place.

Jesus did most of his ministry around a lake. And he calls us in much the same way. Jesus beckons.  Jesus said follow me. It’s an invitation to a relationship that will change our whole lives.

Bring a friend this week, at 9:00am or 10:45am, as we explore who Jesus is and what Jesus means when he says come and follow me. Let’s discover together why the Lake Rules!
 
Topics Include:
  • How to Begin a Relationship with Jesus
  • What it takes to Hear His Voice
  • How to Survive the Storms of Life
  • What Happens When Jesus Takes Over Your Life
  • Why You Should Tell Religion to Go Jump in the Lake
  • How to Let Your Doubt Drive You to More Faith

 

 
If God is For Us, Who Can Be Against Us?
 
Ever wonder what God wants for your life?  Most of us tend to think that God wants something from us. When we read His Word, we see words like obedience and immediately think, this is what you have to do to make God happy. But what if, in his grace, God wants something for you, not from you? Bring a friend this January to Harvest Community Church at 9:00am or 10:45am as we explore what it looks like to put Jesus first in our lives!

Lids:  Getting Unstuck

in My Relationship with God

There are places in the Christian life where I just get stuck.  Those places are lids that prevent me from moving forward in my life with Jesus.  And even worse, once I get stuck, I stop growing.  So we’re going to spend the next 5 weeks getting unstuck in our spiritual journey.  We’ll talk about what Jesus does to get us unstuck and how we can cooperate with what God is doing to move us to better places of growth.

Bring a friend this Summer to Harvest Community Church (Sundays at 9:00am and 10:45am)

Yet, it is highly relevant to life today – relationships, words, decisions, marriage, money, parenting, work–you name it. Buckle up. Let’s get Street Smart!
