Join us this Christmas season for opportunities to worship, connect, and help make a difference, as it fits your schedule and makes sense in this unique season.
CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS WORSHIP
We are captivated and inspired by the story of Jesus’ birth every December. No matter how familiar we might be with it, Christmas always has the capacity to awaken something new within us.
Each week of worship during this season there will be a celebration of a beloved tradition, coupled with growing our understanding of God coming to us in Jesus. We invite you to join us!

The Drive-Thru Christmas Lights experience on the Harvest campus was amazing! The event featured tons of light displays, complete with music and wonder. This was a great opportunity for people from all over the Manatee County area to get out of the house and share some Christmas cheer inside the safety of their own vehicles, driving through the beautiful display. We are grateful for all those who were able to view this free, the two-night extravaganza. Join us for Christmas Eve worship online on the hour from 3 to 11 p.m.!
