Faithful Servants of the Lord Needed
God’s Word says in 1 Peter 4:10, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
As we look ahead to prepare for regular Sunday morning services as a full church this summer, we need help! We specifically need help in these areas:
- Seeds Set Up: Come early to help set up the Seeds area
- Seeds Teardown: Stay after service to put away Seeds equipment
- Trailer AM: Come early to unload equipment cases out of the church trailer
- Trailer PM: Stay after service to load equipment cases into the church trailer
Please consider participating in building back up the body of Christ at Harvest. Contact Pastor Stan to explore a suitable ministry team to support.

- Fully Vaccinated: Masks optional
- Unvaccinated/Not Fully Vaccinated: Masks recommended
- SEEDs: Masks required for everyone in the SEEDs area

We are thankful to be able to have our Sunday services here. There are a few guidelines, we’d like everyone to follow:
