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
