Community Starts Here.
We want to help people move out of isolation and into inclusion; out of anonymity and into community; out of independence and into interdependence. We are better together than we are apart. Community Groups provide a safe place for people to make new friendships and start growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

At Harvest Chapel, a Community Group is the best place for sustained life change to occur. In these groups, people study God’s Word and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It’s also where people pray together, care for one another, and are missed if they don’t show up. There is not a way for the staff to personally minister to everyone who attends our church. That’s why we place such emphasis on group life. It’s how we minister effectively. Community Groups are small groups comprised of eight to twelve individuals or five to six married couples that meet at various locations for fellowship, Bible study, prayer, and accountability. They are semester based groups that meet eight to twelve weeks and then take a month off, starting new groups and new topics. We offer Community Groups for college students, married couples, men, and women.

Study: Starting Point — A Conversation About Faith (by Andy Stanley)

Time: Mondays @ 6:30 – 8:00pm (weekly)

Who: Open to all

Leader: Linda Kaminski

Location: 10 Marthas Vineyard Drive (Fredonia)

Everything has a starting point- your life, your relationships, your education, your career. Sometimes we forget that faith has a starting point. Too often, a faith formed in childhood isn’t strong enough to withstand the pressures of adult life. But what if you could find a new starting point for faith? Join us for an 8-week video series exploring faith. (Cost: $8 for study guide)

Isaiah declared that “the year of the Lord” had come and God’s people needed to either step up, or stand down. Indeed, when Isaiah spoke, kings trembled. But when Isaiah speaks today, we have trouble hearing. Why? We often miss the larger context. This 8-week study explores the definition and role of the prophets, and helps us to apply the message of faith to our lives today. (Cost: $5 for binder)

Our faith in God often hinges on his activity—or inactivity—in our daily experiences. When our prayers are answered, our faith soars. When God is silent, it becomes harder to trust him.
