Home groups are a great way to get plugged into the community of believers here at Harvest in a laid back casual setting. They are definitely a vital part of the ministry here because God never intended for His people to do life alone but to be actively involved in a healthy biblical community. Our heart for every Home Group is that they would provide a place where you can GROW and be challenged in your relationship with Christ, where you can CONNECT with other believers, strengthening and encouraging each other, as well as providing an opportunity to SERVE and meet the needs of others both in and outside our congregation.
Home Groups meet on the first Wednesday of the month. We suspend our Mid-week service for that evening and encourage everyone to participate in a Home Group in their area. Some of the groups meet on different nights during that week depending on what works best for each group.
What can you expect to find on a Home Group night?
Each Home Group is designed to be a laid back friendly and welcoming atmosphere usually at a Host Family’s house. After people talk and have a few snacks, the Facilitator will gather everyone together for discussion time that is centered around Pastor Paul’s previous Saturday night or Sunday morning message. At the end of the discussion, there will be a time to pray for prayer requests and seek the Lord together! At the end of the night, there is more time to fellowship and eat snacks.
If you would like to join a Home Group or are interested in finding out a bit more about Home Groups please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and someone from our staff will get in contact with you.
