What do I do once I get to Harvest Baptist Church?

We have a Welcome Center set up right in front of the church auditorium on Sunday mornings. You will find helpful people who will be glad to answer any questions and direct you where to go.

What options are available for my children?

On Sunday mornings starting at 9:30, we offer an exciting program called Children’s Bible Time, where the children will enjoy singing, craft time, Bible lessons, missionary stories and more. On Wednesday evenings, children are invited to attend our AWANA program which starts at 6:30 pm and is available for 2 years-6th grade. (AWANA does not meet during the months of June and July).

What is there for teenagers?

For 7th-12th graders, HEART for Christ is a great place for them to have the opportunity to cultivate friendships with other teenagers and be personally challenged in their walk with God through preaching and personal discipleship. They meet every Sunday at 9:30 am and every Wednesday at 6:30 pm (Thursdays during June and July). There are also many exciting and life-building activities throughout the year.

What about my youngest children?

The Harvest Baptist Church Nursery provides love and care to all children. Nurturing volunteers help with the care of each child during every service. We provide a clean, safe, and comfortable atmosphere for the children to play, rest, and eat. The infant room (0-12 months) is equipped with swings, walkers, highchairs, bouncers, and beds. The Walker room (12-24 months) is designed to give the children ample room to play inside with an inviting atmosphere of a beautiful garden mural as well as a covered outside area with slides and tricycles. During church, these children will be introduced to Jesus by singing Bible songs on DVD and coloring a Bible story. Our toddler room (2-3 year olds) includes a huge covered outside playground area and a spacious updated room with lots of toys. Every service the children have a scheduled time of playing outside, snacks and water break, story, songs, coloring, and using the potty or changing diapers.

Where can I park?

There is guest parking provided by the church building. It is the first row of parking spaces closest to the auditorium.

What do I do before the service starts?

If you arrive before the service starts, you will notice that our auditorium is filled with comfortable pews. There are no reserved seats, so you may sit anywhere. Many people will be greeting one another during this time.

What are the services like?

Services generally last about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Our worship services are a time of joyful worship and praise, with a focus on congregational worship. Pastor Herron gives Bible-based messages lasting 30-45 minutes. His messages are timely and applicable. Audio CDs of the message are also available as well as video and audio downloads online.

How will I know when to stand?

The pastor or the music director will ask the congregation to stand or sit. Generally we stand while singing and during times of public prayer.

Do you give public invitations at the end of the service?

At the end of the message, Pastor Herron invites anyone who does not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ to accept Him. This is also a time for personal prayer with God over changes we may need to make in our lives. Counseling is also available.

Do I need to donate money when I visit?

Harvest Baptist Church does believe tithing is a Biblical principle and we do encourage it. However, our guests should not feel any obligation to participate. We would request that, as a guest, you would fill out a Guest Information card, and we would ask you to drop it in the offering plate.

What happens after the service?

After each service, we welcome everyone to stay and enjoy the fellowship with each other. We take a special time after the Sunday morning services to meet with our guests. We invite them to join us at our campus coffee shop, HeBrews Woldwide Café, to enjoy a free tea or coffee as a thank you for visiting.
