Why small groups?
Since the church exists to glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matt.28:19-20) in the spirit of the Great Commandment (Matt.22:37-39), then making quality disciples is paramount. At Harvest, we believe quality disciples worship Christ, walk with Christ, and work for Christ together through unashamed adoration, unapologetic preaching, unceasing prayer, unafraid witness, in uncommon community.
It is the gospel of Christ that makes the church such an uncommon community, and one of the best ways to see and experience this unique gospel community is in small groups. Walking with Christ together in small groups is the primary pathway of discipleship at Harvest, by which we mature and multiply to make other disciples of Christ. That's why we are a church of
small groups, not just with
small groups, because small groups provide maximum growth in the gospel.
What happens in a small group?
Like spiritual greenhouses, small groups enable us to experience catalytic growth both personally and together. Each week, as small groups meet for worship, prayer, Bible study, mutual ministry (care and accountability), and outreach activities, we experience the quality of discipleship that we long for and that God calls us to - supernatural transformation toward Christlikeness through God's Word, by God's Spirit, with God's people.
What kinds of small groups are there?
God's Word repeatedly emphasizes the pattern of intergenerational discipleship (Ps.71:17-18; Tit.2:2-6), and small groups are arranged to allow for this biblical dynamic as much as possible through either Mixed Groups, Men's Groups, or Women's Groups at Harvest.
