Who Cares?
In life, we need simple reminders that people care. Beyond that, we need to be reminded that God cares -- He cares for us very deeply. He even tells us to cast all our concerns, anxieties, fear and dreams -- all of it -- on Him. He cares about the little and big things in our lives. The question is, do we trust, the God of the Universe, really cares for us?

    What Do You Expect?
    We start journeying 40 days of praying. Why 40 days? We believe it takes 40 days to make something a habit and praying is a habit worth forming as we grow spiritually. So we began, Week One looking at how our expectations determine our experience. In life, two people can experience the same thing and have two very different reactions. One might be pleasantly surprised, while the other is surprisingly disappointed. Our prayers often have that type of reactions -- surprised or disappointed. However, Pastor Jim challenge of what do we expect when we pray might be surprising. Instead of coming with needs and wants -- what if we come to God with "immeasurably more." What if we raised our level of spiritual expectation!

    Gospel Preached to the Poor
    We set aside one Sunday during the year to move in the direction of freedom -- we join thousands of other churches to proclaim freedom for the lost, broken, poor, enslaved and needy. We call it Freedom Sunday. This year we focused on raising funds for Impact Middle East -- those refugees who were affected by ISIS and the need for schooling, housing, and healing. Pastor Jim talks about the impact Jesus made in the world by taking care of the poor and widows. This was the hallmark of Jesus' ministry. This, too, should be our mark on the world -- to care for the poor and broken around us.

    Everyone With A Gift
    Series: n/a
    We all have been given a gifts that have gone unused. Perhaps a Christmas or birthday gift from grandma that you have tucked away in the closet. Never to be seen from again. It's the same thing that God has given us -- talents, gifts, unique abilities to carry on for the church (the people, not the building). However, a large percentage of people think, "I have nothing to offer." Wrong! We need everyone to play a part. So what are you doing with your gifts that God gave you!

    On Mission
    Dr. Paula and Dr. Delia (Area Directors of Latin America) gave us a great report on the work done in Central and South America where the Free Methodist church and its leaders are exploding. Harvest Chapel has been financially and strategically  partnered with Olver's the past 25 years. 10% of all money we receives, goes out to bless missionary work locally, nationally and internationally.

    Harvest Chapel UNITED

    We took our location on the road at Fredonia High School Auditorium for a special joint service between the 9:30 and 11:00 services. Together, we united on mission for Christ and learned how we (the people) are church. Enjoy the entire service including the bagpipes!

    Remembering Jesus
    Series: n/a
    Have you ever wondered why we eat small pieces of bread and drink a sip of juice in some church services? You are not alone. Communion from an outsider perspective...it's weird. Yet, there is a lot packed into this tradition that has gone all the way back to Jesus. (Re)understand the tradition of Communion and how to remember Jesus.

    Love Your Neighbor As Yourself
    As we conclude our summer sermon series, The Ten Commandments, we finish up with the tenth word from God: coveting. Coveting is not merely an appreciation of something from a distance, but rather an uncontrolled, inordinate, selfish desire to crave something you do not have. Pastor Jim gives both silly and serious examples in his message to us.

    Blessed by the Truth
    Relationships depends on truth. We all know that truth-telling is essential to build trust in a healthy relationship. Then why is it so hard to tell the truth and lie. During this series, The Ten Commandments, commandment #9 says, “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.” When we stop to consider this command, we realize, we are bound by lies, but blessed by the truth. So what falsehoods or deceits do we need to confess and give up this week so we can be blessed by the truth.

    Do Not Steal
    Guest speaker, Damian, has some great insight to Commandment #8 -- do not steal. We have made stealing to be a rather gray area, but Damian gets to the heart that stealing is stealing. You are either a person who takes or a person who gives. Giving is what brings life to those around you. Be a giver!
