We were made for dynamic, life-giving relationships with God, other people, and the world around us.
Jesus lived into these relationships within his own life. He was regularly found spending time alone with the Father, doing life in a community of people who knew him well, and bringing healing, restoration, justice, and good news to the people and crowds he encountered.
Here at Harbor Churches, we want to help you take steps to deepen each of these relationships in your own life. To do this, we create communities of belonging centered on Jesus where you can be formed and sent to be good news.
MCs are ongoing groups of 15 – 25 people who exist to be good news to one another and the people around us. MCs are small enough that we can genuinely care for each other but large enough that we can dare to make an impact in the lives of the people around us. MCs are designed to invite our neighbors, friends, co-workers, and classmates to experience good news through a community of belonging. MCs share a meal together at least 2x per month, pray and give thanks together, and find creative ways to ‘help people find their way back to God.’
Anchor groups are a men’s small group/bible study opportunity for 6-8 people to explore together what the Bible says about God and about humanity. Utilizing the Discovery Bible Study approach, we will practice hearing the word but also doing the word through both life practice and missional rhythms. Anchor groups will run 6 – 8 weeks each fall and spring term based on a sermon series and/or special topic chosen by the leaders.
Cultivate groups are a women’s small group/bible study opportunity for 6-8 people to explore together what the Bible says about God and about humanity. Utilizing the Discovery Bible Study approach, we will practice hearing the word but also doing the word through both life practice and missional rhythms. Cultivate groups will run 6 – 8 weeks each fall and spring term based on a sermon series and/or special topic chosen by the leaders.
Theology + Practice:Labs
How does my faith connect to the big issues of our time? What does Scripture and theology say about the things I grapple with day to day? How do I talk about what I believe in ways that are winsome and compelling? Our Theology + Practice:Labs are an experimental space in which we explore a particular topic for 4 – 6 weeks through the lens of Scripture and theology to help us discover and practice meaningful ways of embodying what we believe in our everyday lives.
Faith|Work: as part of the Invocation Project
What am I called to in this next season of life? How do I integrate my faith with my work? How can I lead effectively? How can I help the people, organizations, and communities within my sphere of influence thrive and flourish? We’re asking questions like these as part of our Faith & Work Project, which is designed to help Christ-followers – whether you work at home, in the community, in a school, in the trades, or in a corporate office – 1) discover calling and purpose and 2) integrate your faith with your work more fully.
