Harvest Church Builds Lifelong Friendships One Service at a Time

By Elisha Neubauer

Harvest Church prides itself on providing a safe space for their patrons. Their primary goal is to connect people to God and inspire life-change through Jesus. A come-as-you-are worship space, Harvest Church strives to make worship fun, exciting, and creative.

"We enjoy great music, practical and encouraging messages," says Krista Nicholls, Guest Services Coordinator for Harvest Church. "For Harvest, worship is a lifestyle that continues from the week into the weekend. We build friendships that help us not do life alone." The Church utilizes unique methods, such as Kidstown, which covers ages infant to 5th grade, to teach children life applicable lessons by presenting the Bible in fun and inventive ways. "From Kidstown to our adult Community Groups we value the bond and encouragement that grows from lasting relationships," Nicholls says.

The community built within Harvest Church passionately serves those in need in the surrounding area while making great strides to change their world both locally and globally. "Every person at Harvest is asked to grow by taking the next step because growing people change- for the better," exclaims Nicholls.

According to Nicholls, the biggest distinguishing feature setting Harvest Church apart from other worship centers is actually the people. "Around the church building and the community you're likely to see t-shirts proclaiming, 'I Love This Place!'" states Nicholls. "Harvest people love this place because they're being changed by the love of Jesus and the love for each other." She explains that what Harvest does best is connect people to Jesus.

"We are a Jesus centered, come-as-you-are church," she says. "We warmly accept everyone but, we also love you enough to tell you the Truth and help you move to the next step. We want our visitors to feel like family." She adds, "Everyone leaves knowing how to take the next step with an encouraging hope?because growing people change."

The atmosphere is another distinctive factor. "Our atmosphere is filled with good friends gathering for a time of good music and practical and encouraging messages," Nicholls details. "Laughter, hugs, and Krispy Kreme doughnuts fill the hallways."

The Harvest Community Groups work side by side for the benefit of their local area, offering such services as packing backpacks for students in need, partnering with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, and caring for each member of the group as need arises.

"You can't do life alone," Nicholls affirms. "We are a big Church, but that doesn't mean you have to be just another face in the crowd. Come worship with us, join a student or adult group, or serve on a ministry team. There are many ways to get connected here at Harvest!"
