HOUSEFIRE | Homegroups
Healthy community is a key component to having a strong and thriving church.
We are believing for a dramatic increase to see miracles, signs, and wonders here at Harvest Chapel as people encounter the love and power of God through a healthy community in a home setting.
When people connect to a homegroup, encourage one another as the Body of Christ we will truly step into the reality of the Kingdom that will unlock healing and a greater depth of personal identity in Jesus in an incredible way.
As people encounter God through community, we will see people set free and truly begin to walk in freedom. What will happen when multiple home groups become set on fire for Jesus then come together on a Sunday morning for corporate worship? Our house fire will become a wildfire!
