-Sunday Worship. Join us in-person for one of our two in-person Sunday services. We worship in-person for Alpha and Omega services while we live-stream our Omega Service. This Sunday, we will continue our sermon series on the book of James as we look at the end of James 4. Pray for Albert Kang and others who will lead praise, PDL who will be preaching, our worship intern Min who will be presiding, and for new member Jin Nam, who will be sharing his membership testimony. Remember that all are welcome to join us at 10.10am each Sunday morning in the cafe for a time of heart-check in prayer. Let’s come prayerful and hungry and ready to give God our 100% worship. Let’s not be distracted and let’s prepare well for what God is doing in us.
-Sunday Morning Prayer. All are invited to join in prayer every Sunday in the cafe at 10.10am. This will be a time of prayer to turn our hearts to God and to intercede for our Omega Service
-Prayer Meeting. These are times of worship through song, hearing a devotional and spending time in prayer for ourselves, our church, and our world. Prayer time is guided as we pray through different topics of personal need, church-wide intercession and world concern.
-Childcare Opportunity. This Friday through Sunday, Vision Church will be having revival services with Pastor Inki Kim preaching. Any Harvesters who would like to serve by providing childcare can talk to JP Kwak at [email protected] Serving opportunities are available on Friday and Saturday nights from 730-930pm. They are expecting between 20-30 children.
-College Ministry Barbecue. Last week, there was a wonderful BBQ lunch and game time for college students. There will also be a beach trip coming up on July 30. Talk to Hannah Kim, Jane Chang, or Yoonhyuk Kim for info.
This ministry to college students will continue to serve those who are in-town during the school year as well as those who are out of town during the year. If you would like to get more information, please talk to one of our leaders.
-Installation and Commissioning Service. THIS Sunday, June 26 at 5pm, there will be two separate but continuous worship services for Vision Church starting at 5pm. Everyone is invited to celebrate with Vision Church as new Pastor Chris Inchul Nam is installed as pastor of Vision Church and Pastor Inki Kim is commissioned to serve God’s Kingdom through house church ministries and other means. Services start at 5pm in the Vision Church Sanctuary. The installation service will involve leaders from Central Florida Presbytery as well. All are invited to come and celebrate. Dinner will be available afterwards.
-Harvest 201. Harvest 201 is a 12-week class that will help believers grow in their discipleship. Signup will begin in a couple weeks. Harvest 201 meets on Tuesday nights from 7-945pm and is a crucial step for all those who call Harvest home.
-Encounter - Pioneers. Sometimes those with an interest to go overseas hold back due to barriers like fear, doubts, unknowns, or how to even simply take the next step forward into missions. Pioneers will be holding a conference in Orlando in August to help people like this meet with missionaries and hear presenters in an intimate environment designed to foster community and address any barriers. Attendance is capped at 150 to ensure good interaction. Visit the Encounter website: https://encounter.pioneers.org/ or talk to Chris Lee with any questions.
-Urbana Missions Conference. Urbana, one of the most influential mission conferences in history, takes place every three years. It will be held from December 28-31 in Indianapolis, IN, Urbana.. Anyone interested in attending can talk to Hannah Kim or P.DL
-Serving Breakfast. Some of our servants arrive early on Sunday morning to lead our church in worship by serving at Alpha and Omega services. If you would like to serve breakfast for about 10-15 servants, please talk to Jaime Fan
-Support Ukraine. The situation in Ukraine remains dire. While dying down in the news, Russia continues its atrocities, perpetuating war crimes and inhumane, indecent acts against the people, including women and children. The church is faithfully standing, shining, and serving, but the atrocities and bloodshed are devastating. Please do not let out of sight be out of mind. As we continue to pray for the war in Ukraine, anyone wanting to help in other practical ways can visit our giving page at www.donate.harvestkpco.org - P.Josiah is in contact with a few pastors whose churches are in dire need of support. Any amount helps.
-Join a House Church. Anyone who would like to be placed in a house church can fill out a house church application. There may be a wait time or those interested may be asked to take Harvest 101 before joining a HC: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1lQIQEnM6mClWyVNEMyTIa0VepkBL4G5ZTJVEPkRtW1Q/edit?ts=611fab7a
A church’s purpose is to make disciples by connecting with unbelievers, bringing the gospel to them, welcoming them into the church, and then teaching them to obey the teaching of Christ. Disciples will then repeat that cycle with others. The New Testament Church did this as they met in homes where believers were discipled and non-believers experienced the power of the gospel lived out. We are not a church WITH house churches; we are a church OF house churches. House churches are the heartbeat of our congregation. They look inward, upward, and outward and go hand-in-hand with Sunday worship and our spiritual formation classes (Harvest 101, 201, etc.) as the 3-axes of our ministry. To get plugged in, talk to Rick Terrell ([email protected])
