Back to School – Week 4 at Harvest Church

harvestwebpromobanners copy.031

This weekend at Harvest Church we continue in our series titled, Back to School, a Guide to Discipleship. In the series we are discussing the spiritual disciplines of a follower of Jesus Christ, by looking at Jesus’ life for example of the disciplines and what he did to live out the discipline.

Having Time with God (Developing a habit of prayer.) Accountable Relationships (Relationships where you are able to be yourself and still be loved.) Bible Memorization (Committing to memory God’s Word.) Involvement (In the Life and Ministry of the Church.) Tithing/Giving (Understanding how we are to Worship through our giving.) and Studying Scripture (Investing in the Word of God to know God more.)

This weekend we will tackle the topic of Involvement. Throughout the New Testament, we read about the importance of being part of the Body of the Christ. But what did it look like for Jesus to be involved within the life of his faith and his community? Do we see occasions where Jesus demonstrates his commitment to the life of the church (or synagogue) and the community around him?

So this Sunday, we will take a fast-paced walk through the Gospel of Luke, stopping to catch the little snapshots of Jesus living out the habit of being involved, both in ministry and in life.

I want to invite you to come and join us this Sunday, at Harvest Church. We meet at VFW Post 764, located at the corner of Valley Brook and E McMurray Rds. in McMurray. Our worship service begins at 10:00 and concludes around 11:15 a.m. Children in grades Pr-K through 5 will love Sprouts, our exciting Children’s Ministry that meets between 10:30 and 11:15 a.m.

Visit Harvest’s website at, for more information about the church, how to contact us, and directions to VFW 764. We would love to welcome you and your family as our guests this Sunday!

Left Behind – The NEW Movie

left-behind-movie-poster-1It’s coming back. But it’s not a sequel. In fact, it’s not even a remake. It’s a totally different telling of the widely popular, widely read book, Left Behind. I was asked by a member from my church, what I thought about the coming release. Well, to be honest, I haven’t really looked into the movie just yet. So to give an opinion or thought at this point would be to do so as an uneducated nah-sayer. So instead, I came across this article by a guy who know a little bit more about all of this than me, Jeffery Overstreet.

Check out the article about the upcoming movie, Left Behind. And as I take a look into the movie myself, I’ll post something here later on.

Oh, and when you’re done reading the critics post, come back here and share your initial thoughts. Are you looking forward to the movies release? Will you rush out and see it opening weekend? Or will you wait till its the local DVD vending machine in your neighborhood?

As always, thanks for reading! Be sure to subscribe to the blog!

Yesterday, I received an advertisement distributed by Christianity Today in which Tim LaHaye said this about the new Left Behind movie:

You will be moved, blessed and thrilled.

Yeah, I remember how, when I was six years old, I wrote a story, stapled it together, and then, to make it look like a real book, I put my own rave-review blurb on the cover, praising my own story. Because that made it real. And who better to describe the greatness of a story than the guy who wrote it?
