We love first-time guests. We want you to come as our guest, and we believe you’ll leave as our friend. But we know that going to a new church for the first time can be intimidating. So we trust the answers to these questions will help you have a great experience.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
What you wear is not near as important as you might think. Our regular crowds dress casually, and our pastoral staff is typically dressed business casual. Most of us prefer blue jeans and other comfortable clothes.
WHERE DO I PARK?
You can enter our paved lot at 1095 Muscogee Road. You’ll have a designated GUEST spot with a short walk to the entrance. You’ll recognize the entrance doors with the bold “Welcome Home” lettering, and a smiling face will greet you there.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Our Sunday morning worship service begins at 9:30...but, you might want to come early to enjoy a free cup of coffee and a sweet treat.
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN AND OTHER NEEDS?
As soon as you enter our lobby, you’ll sense the excitement of genuine hometown hospitality. Right away, you’ll see our staffed nursery is closely located for your precious little ones, and clean restrooms are also easily seen. As well, one of our greeters will be glad to help you get your children checked in to our Children’s Church ministry area.
WHAT ARE THE PEOPLE LIKE?
Harvest Christian Center is a church of all ages that exists for all generations. Our people are from all walks of life. However, we’re kind of a mess. As a community of people that’s finding out what it means to have life in Jesus, follow Him daily, and leave our pasts behind, we desire to be better. The grace of God is what we’re dependent upon, and He is the source of our blessings.
WHAT WILL THE WORSHIP SERVICE BE LIKE?
Our music is contemporary, modern, and Christ-focused. Don’t worry about not knowing the words because we’ll have them projected onto screens for you to follow or sing along. The spoken ministry will feature a practical Bible-based message. Our 9:30 worship service is always over in plenty of time for lunch and other afternoon family activities. If you’d like to know more about our worship services before coming, the next best way to check us out is on our YouTube channel linked here.
WHAT IS REQUIRED OF ME?
Nothing. We won’t pressure you to do anything. You’ll be asked to fill out a Connect Card that gives us your name and contact information. This is so we can mail you a brief thank you note for being with us. And if you turn in that filled out card on the way out, we’ll give you some homemade treats and a free pizza in exchange. When our tithes and offerings are received, we will not pressure you to give. Guests are not expected to give financial gifts. After our pastor’s sermon, an invitation will be given for prayer. You’ll only come forward if you want the spiritual ministry of prayer with one of our altar workers.
