What is the Congregational Care Network?
Harvest’s Congregational Care Network provides a place to help connect you with others, meeting you where you are, and walking through life’s struggles with you. It is our desire to come alongside you and help you in your time of need, providing support and care through one of our care ministries.
One of the main purposes of Harvest’s Small Group Ministry is to help develop strong relationships between members the congregation. Small groups meet regularly for fellowship, discipleship, support and accountability.
When a couple considers marriage at Harvest they are asked to attend premarital counseling. This counseling prepares couples for a God honoring and stable marriage. The counseling can be done through a 7 week group series or by meeting with the pastor who has been asked to officiate.
Harvest offers compassionate biblical counseling to members in need of guidance through life’s many common struggles. Experienced counselors will listen to your situation, help you understand what God desires, and walk patiently with you as you make progress in living your life according to God’s word.
Through life, many of us will experience trials and hardships. These hardships may be steered by a job loss, living as a single mother or father, the death of a family provider, or a separate burden. At Harvest, our deacons oversee a fund which provides services for members who are experiencing a financial emergency.
Food pantry & Dinners
The Harvest Food Pantry provides non-perishable food items for members in need. We understand that emergencies arise and the Church will offer support through this difficult time. Harvest also has planned ahead for members experiencing a medical difficulty or other special circumstances. Our women’s ministry provides and stores frozen dinners to help members who are not able to make meals for themselves.
At Harvest we make it a priority to care for members who don’t have family close enough to care for them. Harvest has men and women who can provide support in ways such as: prayer, help with meals, getting to and from appointments, etc.
Weddings & funerals
The Harvest pastoral staff and our elders are available to officiate weddings and funerals.
The Harvest congregational care team visits the sick to provide prayer and encouragement. Encouragement is given through scripture passages that highlight God’s grace and provide comfort during this difficult season
Our prayer team is a group of individuals who gather to pray during our two Sunday services as well as during our 24-hour prayer watch. The prayer team prays for guidance, protection, and for the Holy Spirit to be present during worship and teaching time in each service. They also, along with elders and staff members, lift-up prayer requests submitted to the church throughout the week.
