Groundhogs

Groundhogs are responsible for keep our grounds looking beautiful. Typical teams of 3 to 4 people use a riding mowers for the main area, use a push mower to trim, and operate a weed whacker or edger. 

 

Volunteers Needed to work with  our Ground Hogs


It's mowing season and we need volunteers to help mow our grounds.


Work 3 to 4 Hours once per month on Thursday or Friday morning between the hours of 7am and noon. Our goal is that each volunteer works once per month.

Prayer is essential

Prayer is absolutely essential to the life of any believer and any church. 

Prayer Ministry

Therefore, our prayer ministry begins by encouraging everyone at Harvester to be a person of prayer. Prayer needs are listed in the worship bulletin on a weekly basis. 

There are so many needs in our church and beyond that must be covered in prayer.
