HARBORSIDE NEWS

Churchwide Connect Group Session begins January 27

 

Most people don’t know how to be honest about themselves. Even if we don’t want to be honest, we need to be. When we experience true honestly regarding ourselves, it opens the doors for growth and freedom in our lives. We don’t always know how to talk about these tough topics in church, but we desperately need to. This will be our focus together, as a connect group. Let’s start 2020 off strong. Let’s be honest.

You can still jump into a group!  Browse open groups online and email the leader to join.

March 1

10:00 AM  |  Room 218

 

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).
