VBS 2018 • June 4-8 (M-F), 9-11:45am

Theme: Mega Sports Camp

"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other,
just as in Christ God forgave you." Ephesians 4:32

The best part of being on a sports team is sharing experiences together. Success comes from cooperation and respect, even when someone makes a mistake. These same qualities that help athletes win are also valuable in everyday life. Even Jesus chose a team to show us what TEAM Spirit is all about.

MEGA Sports Camp sports ministry outreach gets preschool and elementary kids out of their chairs and into the Word of God. Bible teachings interwoven with sports training make an unforgettable, life-changing outreach event.

Harvest Dinner

Every year we come together and recognize the blessings that God has given to us as individuals as well as to us as the Body of Christ. As a church we have been given every opportunity to support ministries locally and abroad. Each ministry is equally important and has an impact on the Kingdom of God by spreading the good news of Christ, thus working to accomplish the mission that Christ set for us in Matthew 28. 

The Harvest Dinner & Offering has long been a call to each of us in the church to give above and beyond our normal giving to help support each one of our regular missions as well as particular needs that might arise within the community. We invite you to join us for our annual Harvest Dinner & Offering on Sunday, November 12th following worship. The meat and potatoes will be provided, just bring two sides to share with everyone!

CIY Superstart
Oct

to Oct 8

CIY Superstart

  • Harvester Christian Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

SuperStart! is an event where preteens will encounter Christ through worship, interactive teaching and small groups – all of which are designed with their unique needs and maturity in mind. Preteens who attend SuperStart! will leave the weekend with not only a great experience, but also the teachings and foundation to further amplify Christ’s call on their lives to become Kingdom Workers.

The demand for preteen-specific ministry has continued to increase within America's churches over the past decade. Many of today's church leaders realize the importance of a purposeful discipleship tactic for young people in fourth through sixth grades. These preteens need more time, space and resources. They need teaching that is specific to their age group - not too young (or "boring," as they would say it) and not too old. CIY's SuperStart! exists to help fill the void for this age group, and to come alongside the church in a fun, inventive way to reach students that are often overlooked.

REGISTRATION IS DUE BY SEPTEMBER 3RD!! Please contact our Children's Ministry Director, Brenda McFarland, if you would like to register your child for SuperStart!

You can also find our more about SuperStart! by visiting ciy.com/superstart
