Small Group Update

At Harvest Decatur, you hear a lot about Small Groups. That’s because we believe Small Groups are the best atmosphere for biblical care and fellowship. This summer is a great time to visit a Small Group in a casual setting . Meetings happen on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, with added summer social events. We are excited to announce that this fall a new group is forming to meet on Wednesdays. If you would like to visit Small Group this summer, contact Michael or Shelley Vernon, or indicate your desire on the Friendship Register.

Membership @ Harvest

MEMBERSHIP AT HARVEST: JANUARY 27
We believe that from the earliest followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, believers have identified with and committed themselves to a particular local body. In light of this understanding, Harvest Decatur affirms the value of formal membership. To get an informed sense of who we are, attend Membership@Harvest, an evening where our Pastors and Elders will fill you in on our vision, history, leadership, and values that are most important to us. The next class is Saturday, January 27 from 5-8 pm. Sign up to attend on the Friendship Register or in the Fellowship Hall.

Advent Season

IDEAS FOR THE ADVENT SEASON

Advent.png

IDEAS FOR THE ADVENT SEASON

Today begins the observance of Advent. Observing Advent with our families helps remind us and our children that the greatest gift is not the one under our tree. It’s the one deposited in our life through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as given to us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

If you’re not already, we encourage you to begin an Advent journey with your family. Make haste toward the “baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” (Luke 2:12) Build the excitement and awe of the Creator taking on the form of the created to redeem fallen man and call His own for His glory.

Here are some Advent resources to help your family get started:
