community Groups

Community Starts Here.

We want to help people move out of isolation and into inclusion; out of anonymity and into community; out of independence and into interdependence. We are better together than we are apart.  We were made for Community. Community Groups provide a safe place for you to make new friendships and start growing in your faith.  

At Harvest Chapel, a Community Group is the best place for sustained life change to occur. In these groups, people study God’s Word and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It’s also where people pray together, care for one another, and are missed if they don’t show up.  Learn more about which groups are offered below. 

The Groups.

Read the description of the groups and sign up below using the form. If you have any question please contact Pastor Nate -- pastornatel.harevst@gmail.com
The groups will start the week of May 15

Support Group for Mental Health
Tuesdays / 6p / Harvest Chapel
It seems like everyone is talking about mental health these days.
Schools talk about it. Doctors talk about it. Even the government is talking about it. But often, they only talk about one piece of mental health. Without the whole picture, good mental health is a pipe dream. By understanding the spiritual component of mental health, and how transformative a life in the Church can be, then, and only then, is good mental health possible.
This group will  explores the impact of our mental health on our inner lives, as well as the importance of understanding that God made each one of us on purpose and for a purpose.

* This group will meet for 8 weeks *

Culture Shock
Wednesdays / 6p / Harvest Chapel
Where do you stand on issues like: Truth, the Environment, and the Church and Politics? More importantly, what does God say? More than ever before, believers must develop convictions based on research, reason, and biblical truth. But it doesn’t stop there. It’s equally important that you’re able (and willing) to communicate these convictions with a love and respect that reflects God’s love. This series will help you learn how to respond with love, even in the face of controversy. In the process, you’ll discover the power of bringing light–not heat–to the core issues at the heart of society today.

Blessings or Curse
Wednesdays / 6:30p / St. Stephen's Cafe (Brocton)
Do you know what forces are influencing your life from day to day? Do you feel under mental, emotional or financial pressure much of the time? Are your closest relationships in turmoil? Do you wonder why success comes easily to others but seems to elude you? In Blessing or Curse, Prince shows how the forces behind blessings and curses might be at work in your life. Drawing from God's Word and real-life experiences, Prince will help you understand the causes of curses and teach you how to be set free from them, so that you can start enjoying the benefits of God's blessings.

What The Woman Saw
Thursdays / 10a / Harvest Chapel
Do women matter to the kingdom of God? Jesus was surrounded by both men and women during his ministry on earth. He saw, valued, and cared for women, and he still does today. Each one of us has a significant role.

Through this study, you will discover who Jesus is through the unique perspective of women in the Bible. As you study the lives of Mary, Martha, Mary Magdalene and others, you will learn from their faith and failures and be reminded that Jesus cared for and valued the women he was surrounded by. He equipped them, listened to them, walked with them, healed them, and empowered them. And he does the same for you now.

LIGHT: Losing an Individual
as Grieving Hearts Transform
Thursdays / 6p / Harvest Chapel
Grief is a process of acknowledging the reality of what's happened, acknowledging how you feel about that reality, and ultimately fitting it into a new understanding of life with that loss. The flow is not as linear as we've sometimes heard - it's more of a cycle. This support group will acknowledge, validate, and step into the loss of a child (or any loved one) with you.

* This group will meet for 6 weeks *

Pat Astry

Bible Project Study
Thursdays / 7p / Zoom
Come join us on a series of mini-Bible studies from the BibleProject!  Each study involves a five minute animated video, several scripture passages and several questions for discussion. Topics include the following:  What is God like? Is God trustworthy? Is God slow to anger? Does God test us? Why did God enter into a partnership with humans?  And more.  No books to purchase

* This group will meet for 6 weeks *

John & Janice Neail

Christian Worldview by the Colson Center
Fridays / 6p / Gerry Free Methodist
Learn how to establish a biblical worldview that is based on what you believe the Bible says is entirely true, and then allow it to be the foundation of everything you say and do. You’ll have a great discussion about how to diligently learn, apply and trust God’s truths in every area of our lives — whether it’s watching a movie, communicating with your spouses, raising your children or working at the office — we can begin to develop a deep comprehensive faith that will stand against the unrelenting tide of our culture’s non-biblical ideas.

* This group will meet for 8 weeks *
