What are Next Steps?
Life at Harvest goes beyond weekend worship. It’s about ministering to our families, our communities, and each other. There’s so much happening here—we want to make it easy for you to meet people and find out all our church has for you and your family. There’s no better time than now to take your next step of connection. Check them out below, then get started with Step 1.
Step 1: Meet
Let us get to know you – whether you’ve just started coming to Harvest or have been here for a while, if you’re ready to get connected, Step 1 is for you.
Step 1 takes place once every month. You’ll simply meet our pastor and leaders for refreshments in a casual environment. It’s a great opportunity to get to know them, learn more about Harvest, and find out how to take your next step. And no matter what weekend it is, you can always find answer your questions at the Info Centre.
Step 2: Connect
Step 2 is about getting an in-depth look at Harvest – it’s a great way to learn about how to grow and how to follow Jesus and the mission He has given us.
This interactive class happens monthly at our church office. Led by our pastor, you’ll find out what it means to worship, walk with, and work for Christ—and how to put those into practice in your life. At Step 2 you’ll also learn about how to become a committed part of our Harvest family and how to continue growing in your relationship with God and with others in our church.
Step 3: Commit
In Step 3, we’ll walk together as a family – worshiping, walking with, and working for Christ.
This step is about continuing to grow spiritually and relationally – in a small group, in rolling up your sleeves through service to Jesus and His church, and in making Harvest your church home. It’s the step that never stops.
Step 3 starts with filling out a Commit Card at the end of Step 2 where you tell us what you are interested in: Salvation, Baptism, Membership, Small Group, Serving. If you’ve taken Step 2 and are ready to become a committed member of Harvest Bible Chapel, we would love to have you join our church family.
Christian baptism by immersion in water is a public identification with Jesus Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. Water baptism is a public acknowledgment that the person is no longer dead in his/her sins, but now is alive in Christ.
We value an intentional plan to help every interested person enjoy godly relationships in the church. Church membership is a by product of people who are growing in Christ and who grasp the importance of serving the Lord by using their gifts to serve others in the local church.
By dedicating your child to the Lord, you are acknowledging your need for God in your family. You are inviting God to be active in your family life, submitting your own desires for your child to God’s desires, and making a commitment to raise your child in God’s way.
If you are interested in getting baptized, becoming a member, or dedicating your child, please contact Pastor Mike Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org
