CONNECTING TO GOD's Purpose

As our relationship with Jesus develops, we learn how God has uniquely gifted each of us to grow His family and build up the body of Christ. 


As the Apostle Paul writes, "...Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 2:10 NLT).

 

At New Harvest, Serve Groups are where you can start to fulfill God’s purpose for your life by serving others and building relationships within the church, in the community, or in missions across town and across borders. Our heart is to help you find your "sweet spot" of serving where you are thriving and excited about how God is using you.
