At Abiding Harvest we believe we've been called to make fully devoted disciples of these and future generations through authentic Christian community. We believe the best way to accomplish this is through small groups...Home Teams! Being involved in a Home Team allows us to experience the biblical admonitions to be devoted to one another...accept one another...bear with one another...forgive one another...honor one another...live in harmony with one another...serve one another...submit to one another...stop judging one another...encourage one another...offer hospitality to one another...be humble towards one another...and most importantly...LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
The Abiding Harvest family invites you to join a Home Team, where you and others will do life together.
HomeTeams are living-room sized gatherings of those who have heard the Word preached on Sunday mornings and through their own discussions take it for a “test drive.” After all, the hard part of most messages is not hearing it, but living it. Too often we churches leave the toughest part of hearing a sermon to individuals to pull off by themselves! No wonder so few messages ever get translated into real life. Hometeams collaborate on the next steps of application together and that usually makes those steps far easier and more likely. We are all fellow-strugglers. None of us are perfect. We are all ordinary people supporting one another in learning how to please God in real life places that often resist even life-giving adjustments in the routine; in our homes, in our offices, in our relationships. Everyone shares at their own pace. We don’t coerce or force our agendas on one another. No one is put on the spot. Anyone can find encouragement, clarification, hope, and a friend that cares enough to pray you through and who often shows up when you need them most. It’s here that a lot of us are discovering that being church is so much more what we’ve been looking for than justgoing to church. Check out our HomeTeam roster for a group that meets at a time and place convenient for you. Feel free to call and visit with the leader before you go. You’ll be received like an old and good friend. Try several if you like until you decide upon the one best for you.
