Making Space: Lent 2018

It seems to make sense that a Gospel-centered church like ours should have a Gospel-centered calendar! So these past few years we’ve put a lot of energy at Harvest into preparing our hearts for Easter, when we celebrate the very center of the Gospel in the death and resurrection of Jesus our Lord and savior. That’s what Lent is all about. Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter (not counting the Sundays) during which we intentionally prepare hearts and minds to fully celebrate the Easter weekend. Each year we’ve done things a little differently but the goal is always the same.

This year Lent begins on Wednesday February 14, and while we will not hold an Ash Wednesday service this year as we have done in the past, we are encouraging all of our members to make intentional changes to your lives that make space to focus on Easter. Here are some specific suggestions for how you can do that this year, in no particular order:  Click HERE to continue

Joy in Christ Exalted - The Book of Philippians

Do you experience deep contentment and settling joy even when life is hard? Is that even possible!? The apostle Paul insists that it is, saying he’d learned the secret of genuinely experiencing joy no matter what. And the book of Philippians explains how this should – and can – be the experience of every Christian! Join us starting Sunday, February 4th as we walk through this New Testament book as a church, and together discover how your soul can be

satisfied no matter what: by seeing God’s infinite worth as ultimately beautiful.

 

Community Life Groups

Community Life Groups here at Harvest play a vital role in living out the mission of the church: Learning Together to Live Like Jesus to Reach Our World.  It is within these small communities that we can build personal relationships and practice applying the gospel to our lives.
