You are invited to join us for our 2-day Christmas celebration!
 

We are so excited that you've decided to join us for our Christmas celebration! This is the season we celebrate the birth of Jesus and anticipate His future return. This 2-day celebration is themed "Prayer & Praise."

  • PRAYER: On Saturday, December 16th from 9:30-10:30AM, stop by Braswell High School as we'll be in the parking lot eager and ready to pray with and for you PLUS there will be plenty of hot cocoa to keep you warm.

  • PRAISE: On Sunday, December 17th at 11AM, join us for church as we'll have plenty of festive decorations and don't forget to wear your ugly sweater to take home bragging rights if you win the ugliest sweater competition.

Whether you've been in church most of your life, have never been in church before, or have been in and out of church over the years, Harvest Ministries is a great place to feel known, loved, and safe. Our prayer is that as we continue to have weekly services at Braswell High School well into the New Year, it will bring us back closer to God and our neighbors while stirring our hearts to connect with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

If something you hear during the service leads you to make a first-time decision for Christ or caused you to recommit to a decision made a long time ago, we would love to know that and to have the chance to connect with you. We were meant to be in community!

Children's church will be available on Sunday, 12/17, for ages Kindergarten through 3rd grade. We recommend registering early to assist the check-in process.

What is Advent?

The birth of Jesus Christ is known as the 1st Advent and His return will be His 2nd Advent. But what does "Advent" really mean? Watch this brief video to find out.

 

Advent marks the beginning of the Christmas season and the Church year for most Western churches. The word “Advent” means “arrival” or “coming” in Latin and represents the approach of Christ’s birth and the awaiting of Christ’s second coming. It is comprised of the four Sundays leading up to Christmas day.

 

For Christians, Advent is a time of reflection about the amazing gift God gave to us in the person of His Son who came to live among us on earth. It is also an opportunity to restore Jesus to His rightful place as the center of our holiday celebrations. The prevailing themes of the Advent season, and the symbolism behind activities churches and families share, are expectation and hope, preparation and peace, joy and sharing, and most of all, love.

 

Every church may celebrate Advent with different expressions but the focus continues to be the great news that the Messiah was and is coming and how we live out our heartfelt longing for both.

Please refer to our frequently asked questions below to help plan your visit.
