HARBORSIDE NEWS

August 20

7PM

 

We believe God is fighting for high schools and that he is starting a movement of bringing the gospel outside the four walls of the church and directly into the world. The Movement is a high-school-only event designed to guide students to an encounter with Jesus, the only answer. The vision for the night is to create a space designed for students to be free of depression, suicide, pressure and lead them to become part of our family. The goal is to become an activated church and become a movement of domestic missionaries in our high schools.

The next Movement will take place on Tuesday, August 20. We will be there starting at 6:30, and the service will last from 7:00pm-8:30pm.

Location:
Marble and Plum, 2449 McMullen Booth Road N, Suite A, Clearwater, FL 33759

In NEXT you’ll get to know Pastor Kurt Parker and other Harborside staff in a comfortable setting with coffee and refreshments. No sign-up is required.  We’re expecting you. We want to help you connect with God and God’s people. Through Next, taught by Associate Pastor Tom Goodlet, we explore the basics of the Bible, our beliefs and baptism. Then we cover who we are, what we do and where you fit in (i.e. our values, programs and church membership).

Special Needs Buddies Needed on Sundays

Our children’s ministry is currently ministering to several children with special needs – from age 2 to 5th grade. Their parents prefer that their children be integrated into the classroom with children their own age rather than have them attend a class for kids with special needs.

We are in need of 8 “buddies” – people who will serve as a one-on-one friend to each of these children during one worship service per week or every other week.

The preference is for people who have some experience or training in working with kids with special needs.

If you are interested in helping:
