Small Groups

In times of need and times of fun, Small Groups are your source of friendship and support. They're your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues. Groups are 6 to 13 weeks long and typically last 1 to 1 1/2 hour. Books, if required, need to be purchased prior to first meeting from Harvest or commercial bookstores. Harvest Small groups are open to the public, so invite your friends to join in the fun!

Small groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet once a week in homes, businesses, restaurants, or at the church. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You'll never fully experience all that Harvest has to offer until you connect in a small group!

Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ. Acts 5:42

Small groups were vital to the church's growth then, and they are just as vital now. Scroll down to see a list of the Small Groups that are currently available.

Monday

Victory in Spiritual Warfare by Tony Evans




In this timely, unique exploration of spiritual warfare, Dr. Evans unveils a simple yet radical truth: every struggle and conflict faced in the physical realm has its root in the spiritual realm. With passion and clarity, Dr. Evans demystifies spiritual warfare so that readers can tackle challenges and obstacles with spiritual power and God's authority as they: understand how the battle is fought by Satan; actively use the armor of God; find strength in prayer and sufficiency in Christ; and win over chemical, sexual, emotional, relational, and other strongholds
