What a way to set the bar. The brand new Youth Ministry at Harvest really set the bar high during their first Youth Weekend. Kudos to the team on a job well done.

This team of dedicated volunteers overcame some last minute changes due to weather with only minor hiccups. The sky is the limit for this group, as they strive to develop godly character in our youth. Go get ’em. Pictures will follow soon.

Sunday Sentiments

Posted by Meredith Griffin on August 9, 2009

Wow! That is a fitting description of the service this morning at Harvest Christian Fellowship. We are all grateful for God’s moving among us this morning.

It began with the praise team energetically leading us in song. Their leading quickly morphed into spontaneous singing, worship, and praise that no one wanted to see come to an end. We continued the major thought from last week regarding how we relate to one another, this week dealing specifically with laying aside the old self and putting on the new self (Ephesians 4:22-5:2).

The put the exclamation point at the end of a great service by leading six persons to join the church today, with two of those making the initial decision to give their lives to Christ. That’s why we do what we do…we are celebrating two more into the kingdom of God. It was truly a great day. Thanks to all of the great Harvest volunteers!

Stay blessed.

Another glorious first Sunday worship service at Harvest this morning. I want to thank all of our great volunteers who arrived early in order to ensure that everything went well.

Today’s message “What the World Needs Now” dealt with society’s need to experience authentic love, and Church’s unique equipping to fill the need. We defined love as “the consistent demonstration of consideration, concern, and care for another person.”

Ultimately, our challenge as Christians is to get out of the pews and into the lives of other folk. Let’s stop paying lip service to love, and begin to demonstrate it consistently in our homes, on our jobs, and in our communities. Its not a choice…its our calling. Harvest is on board as a community of Christ followers! Love is an action. Who are you going to love this week?

Stay blessed.
