message from the pastor : The Joy of the Harvest

A few days ago I called the office and told my staff. My crop has come in. By that I meant, I'm staying at home to "reap what I have sown." WOW! What a Day. It all seems to come in at one time. SUMMER TIME! 

Summer time to the Jews was a time of harvest as well. It fell right after Pentecost. (Shavuot). When Pentecost was over they all went into their fields and vineyards to "reap what they had sown." Proverbs 10:5 says, "He who gathers in Summer is a wise son. He who sleeps in Harvest is a son who causes shame.

Spiritually speaking, we also reap what we sow. After we have sown in the Spirit, the harvest will come. Sow the Spirit, Sow the Word into the lives of others and the harvest will come. Spiritually speaking, hear the words of Jesus in John 4:35-36, "Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields for they are already ripe unto harvest." Sow, Reap Rejoice.

connect

Growing spiritually doesn't happen when we know what Jesus says. It happens when we apply what he says. Application happens best within the context of community. Just a few of the many ways you can connect include: Sunday morning small groups, Men's Ministry, Women's Ministry, Student Ministry, and much more.

serve

We believe when people engage in service, it leads to life change. Whether you serve on a ministry team in our church, in our community, or in the world, God calls us to serve one another. We have many areas to serve in which include: Children's Ministry, music, kitchen, Hall / Door Greeter, production team, community projects and Mission trips.

invite

Jesus doesn't want the church to be an exclusive club. He wants everyone to know him and follow him. We think it is vital that as we become fully engaged in church, we invest in unchurched people in our lives and get to know them. Then when the time is right, invite them to take the next step toward Jesus.
