Tuesday, May 18th – Women in the Word with Others: Join us for an opportunity to do purposeful spiritual good in the lives of other women, and to grow yourself! Each meeting we pray for one another, share what we’ve been meditating on, and what we are reading and applying from God’s Word. We’re currently meeting on Zoom every other Tuesday night, from 7:00-8:30 pm. Join us as we seek to be and make disciples. For details, contact Kristal Westbrook at 658-7091.
More about Harvest Christian Fellowship: As redeemed sinners who have been raised from spiritual death to new life and adopted into the family of God, our response should be to praise God continually (Psalm 34:1)—to worship the one true God who exists eternally as the triune Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He has revealed who He is through the 66 books of the Bible and has particularly manifested Himself through His incarnate Son, Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:1-3).
When we gather together regularly (Hebrews 10:24-25), we sing God-centered, gospel-focused songs, pour our hearts out to Him in authentic prayer, and hear God’s Word preached.
Our daily desire is to be joyful “Psalm 1 people” by meditating on God’s Word and walking by the Spirit (Galatians 5:16) to live transformed lives (Romans 12:1-2) that display the authentic and active rule of the Lord in us. Empowered by God’s Holy Spirit, we seek to manifest His love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:22-25) in tangible ways among our family, friends, co-workers, community, and throughout the world to the praise of God’s glory.
If you have questions about God and what He says about the good life, please reach out through the contact form on our homepage and someone will gladly get in touch with you https://hcfellowship.com/.
