Summer Shake-Up Begins June 4!

The Summer Sunday school quarter at Harvest begins this coming Sunday, June 4! Come along as we begin our special "Summer Shake-up" schedule for Adult Sunday School. 

Intro to Harvest

With Pastor Marshall, Kitchen.
Curious about Harvest? Have questions you might have been afraid to ask? This class will provide you the opportunity to learn about the history, beliefs, and organizational structure of Harvest. This class will run all summer and is designed for those who want to know more about the church. This class is required before becoming a church member.

June 4th-July 23rd (8 Weeks)

For the first 8 weeks, we will be offering three classes:

"Key Truths for Women"

With Gretchen Fant and Kim Baldwin, Hansen Building Rooms 302-303.
Keys are important. They let us into our homes, allow us to drive our cars, and even give us the capability to unlock safe-deposit boxes at the bank. Spiritual keys are even more important because they unlock the truths we need in order to grow spiritually. This class will cover the essentials for spiritual growth and help you understand how to apply them to your life.

"Managing Our Finances God's Way"

With Mike Yessa and Steve Plumb, Hansen Building Room 301.
What does it mean to manage our finances God's way? What is this supposed to look like in our lives and homes? The Bible is full of wise counsel concerning our financial life. This eight-week class will examine different key principles regarding biblical financial management. Some of the lesson topics will include: Dedicate it all to God, plan your spending, giving as an act of worship, God's solution to debt, and how to enjoy what God has given you.

"Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life"

With John Manthei, Hansen Building Room 304-305.
Do you have a desire to be really real with your God? Do you want to move beyond the stage of normalcy and begin pursuing a life of holiness and godliness? We live in an undisciplined age, but it takes discipline to be godly. The only road to Christian maturity and godliness passes through the practice of spiritual discipline. 1 Timothy 4:7 says to "discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness" (NASB). This class will cover various important disciplines that we as believers can implement that will ultimately cause us to become more like Christ.

July 30th – August 27th (5 Weeks)

For the last five weeks this summer, we will be offering the following two options:

"More Key Truths for Women" (301-302)

With Kim Baldwin, Hansen Building Rooms 302-303.

"Heroes of the Faith: Biographies of Sold-out Servants for God"

Various, meeting in the Auditorium.
What does it mean to be "God's Athlete"? What does it involve to be greatly used by God? Does following Christ come with a cost? What can God do through a believer that is totally surrendered to him? These are some of the elements that will be examined as we step into the lives of five different heroes that God has greatly used throughout our Christian history.

  • 7/30/17 Mike Jensen, Eric Liddell
  • 8/6/17 Joshua Bogunjoko, William Carey
  • 8/13/17 Brendan Stewart, D. L. Moody
  • 8/20/17 David Sperr, Jonathan Goforth
  • 8/27/17 TJ Carney, Hudson Taylor

Letter from Pastor Marshall and Jenna

Announcement

Dear Church Family, 

My family and I are very excited to announce that I have chosen to accept the calling from Harvest to serve as the Senior Pastor. Jenna and I are looking forward to what the Lord has prepared for our church in the coming years. From the beginning of this process, we have been consistently amazed at how God has worked in our hearts and in the hearts of others to show the path forward. Yes, this has been a long process, but it has been a rewarding one. God has allowed us to spend much time listening and talking about what makes our church special and how God might use our congregation in the local and surrounding areas in the future. 

We know we are stepping into some big shoes, and we won't be able to fill all the gaps left for us. But we know that God is gracious and will raise up men and women in our church to fill those gaps. 

Thank you to the deacons and pulpit committee for the time they put into this process. Thank you to Pastor Fant for his leadership and the time he has poured into me. It's been a wonderful experience to serve with my dad and mom in the ministry these past 8 years. We will be forever grateful for their impact on us.

Pastor Marshall and Jenna

Name Amnesty Sunday—January 15, 2017

 

The first step to knowing someone is knowing their name. Have you ever found yourself in the situation where you see someone whose name you should know, but you can't remember? And now you've been in church with them so long that to ask them their name would be completely embarrassing!

On Sunday morning, January 15, 2017, Harvest will be having our first ever Name Amnesty Sunday. 

What is a Name Amnesty Sunday? 

Read more about this idea at this blogpost (click here). Everyone will be wearing name tags—pastors, deacons, Sunday school teachers, first time guests—everyone! Anyone should feel comfortable greeting anyone! 

So come out ready to participate. We look forward to meeting (and re-meeting) you.
