Our Vision

About Us

Harvest is a great place for families and people of all ages.
The heartbeat of our church is people, both those who are already a part of our Harvest family, and those around us in our community. Our desire is to be wherever people are, making a difference in their lives.

We encourage every person to be involved in church life and also helping others in our community. We believe that as we demonstrate the love of God in everything we do, we become what the church was always intended to be.

Go to all the world and preach to every person.

Strategy – Matthew 28:19-20
