Missions Month

June is Missions Month at Harvest! We have several events throughout the month of June for you to GROW through learning and doing, to GIVE both prayers and finances, and to GO into our communities to spread the Gospel! Check out all the events below:

Grow • Give • Go

The overall vision for Missions at Harvest is to help the body GROW spiritually through an increased awareness and understanding of missions and the Great Commission; GIVE prayerfully, financially, and physically to local ministries and mission opportunities; and GO into the world through full-time missions, short-term trips, evangelism, and discipleship.

Growing Opportunities

5th Sunday

Working Together • Serving the Kingdom

What: Every month that has a 5th Sunday, we will have one service (9:00a) and then participate in service projects throughout the metro. Each 5th Sunday will have a variety of service projects to choose from. Our desire is to be a blessing to our local community and strengthen the relationships within our own body by serving alongside one another. We want our practice to match our beliefs – to worship in Spirit and truth while thinking more highly of others than we do ourselves, and using our resources to serve them.

When: 5th Sunday dates for 2023: Jan 29, April 30, July 30, Oct 29

Contact: Learn more information at www.harvestdesmoines.org/5thsunday
