Thanks so much for checking out Harvest Happenings!
Come back weekly for updates on what’s going on here at Harvest, as well as reflections on what God has been doing.
Note: Harvest Happenings is (usually…) updated Wednesday afternoon.
If you’ve entered a relationship with Jesus Christ, but have yet to be baptized, I want to personally invite you (over the internet…) to join me for Baptism Class after 2nd Service this Sunday (Nov. 18th)!
We will discuss what we believe the Bible teaches about Baptism, and you will have an opportunity to sign up to be baptized on Sunday, November 25th during one of our Sunday morning services.
If you plan on joining us for this class, I’ll see you after 2nd service in the Harvest Kids K-3 Classroom this Sunday!
Family Fellowship Dinner (December)
Harvest, it’s time to get another Family Fellowship Dinner on the Calendar!
Our next Family Fellowship Dinner is scheduled for Sunday, December 2nd at 5pm. The Holiday theme for this dinner will be “It’s a Small World,” which means we’ll all be bringing in our favorite International dishes to share with one another. After dinner, we’ll have some Christmas fun as well!
Be sure to mark off this night on your Calendar, because these dinners are a great time of fun among the Church family, and a great opportunity to connect with others you may not have had time to connect with on Sunday morning.

Set Me Free Skit
Sunday morning, we had the honor of watching the Footsteps team perform a skit to the song “Set Me Free” by Casting Crowns. It was a tremendous performance, as it illustrated in vivid colors and words the struggle that so many face every day of their lives.
So many are yearning to be set free from things which are holding them down, leaving them feeling shackled and enslaved to things which hold them back from being all that God created them to be—or even from embracing Jesus Christ as Savior at all.
Yet, as this skit demonstrates, Jesus has the power over every enemy which seeks to hold us back from Him. When we call on Jesus, He has the power to overcome anything which is seeking to enslave us. Jesus has power over all sin and even over death, and He wants to be in relationship with us.
If you did not get to watch this skit, click the link below and watch it—let it remind you of the power of Jesus Christ over the sins in your own life!
We also had the tremendous privilege this Sunday of praying for the Armed Forces Veterans among us in our morning services. It is a tremendous honor to be able to enjoy their company, and a testament to the kindness of God for protecting them while they fought to protect our freedoms.
As the saying goes, ‘freedom isn’t free,’ and it is certainly true. Armed Forces veterans serve faithfully protecting our right to so many different freedoms we enjoy as Americans (including the right to join together to worship the Lord, and the freedom to write about Him here on this website!).
If you have a friend, family member, or neighbor who is a Veteran of any branch of the Armed Forces, please take a moment to pray for them this week, and take an extra moment to thank them for their faithful service to our nation.
The Lord calls us to give ‘honor to whom honor is owed,’ (Romans 13:7), and these men and women are certainly worthy of honor as we think about all the benefits we enjoy as a result of their willing sacrifice of time to preserve the liberty of our nation.
Thank you, Veterans (including my own Dad… Thanks Dad!), for serving our nation, and may our nation never forget your sacrifice as we freely worship the Lord together each week!
Thanks for checking out Harvest Happenings! Come back next week to keep up on what God’s doing here at Harvest!Geary Lutz
