1. What is the vision and purpose for Harvest?
Our direction is clear - given to us by Jesus Christ in the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20). Our mission echoes this: Leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Briefly, the church exists for evangelism and discipleship. We must have both or the church becomes off mission and out of balance.
2. Who is your target audience?
We are specifically aiming to reach the unchurched that are undecided about Jesus Christ. They are real people living in the community or surrounding community and are not against Christ...they just haven't decided to follow Him, yet.
3. How many Services do you have?
We currently offer two services being held at 9:00am & 11:00am. Generally, we offer one service @ 10am during the summer. Please check the events calendar to confirm service times.
4. What should I wear?
Our style is very casual, the bible is very clear that God is more concerned with our inner thoughts and attitudes than our clothes. Come as you are.
5. What will the music be like?
We believe that even on “our” worst day... there is a God who is worthy of worship and celebration. Our music style revolves around celebrating Christ and His work in our lives. You can expect a lot of the music to be upbeat with a mixture of contemporary praise and hymns that focus on Christ.
6. What does ministry to children look like on a Sunday morning?
We currently have space to minister effectively to children from birth to fifth grade during our 9&11am services. Jesus said, let the children come to me – we are with Jesus. Jesus placed a high value on children and so do we.
*We take ministry to children seriously, all of our children and youth ministry volunteers are screened through a National Background Check.
7. Do you have a youth ministry?
Yes, we have a youth ministry for students 6th grade-12th grade. We meet Sunday night 6pm-8pm at the Selah Civic Center located at 216 S 1st St, Selah. We believe a lot of life-change happens during these years and are all about making young lives count for eternity. (Note: our summer location & times will be different. Check our facebook page or Youth Ministry page for updates).
8. Is Harvest part of a denomination?
Harvest is not a part of a denomination (a governing structure, which provides oversight to particular churches). We consider ourselves non-denominational but not isolationists. Harvest does have some strategic relationships/partnerships to see the cause of Christ advanced more effectively both locally and globally.
9. When will you get a “church” building?
We have contracted with the Selah Civic Center (216 South First Street in Selah, WA 98942) and will expand to multiple services at this location before we would buy or build.
10. Is Harvest a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit?
Yes, we are a fully recognized 501 (c)(3) non-profit. Any donations given to Harvest are tax deductible. *Donations must have your name and address in order to receive credit.
11. How do I become a member?
1) Receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. 2) Attend our Welcome Lunch & Foundations class. 3) Be in agreement with Harvest's statement of faith, strategy, and structure. 4) Make a commitment by signing Harvest's Membership Covenant.
