Reminder of the Fifth Sunday

Special Offering on December 30

Help a sister church destroyed by fire and help Harvest reduce it's debt.

Dear Church Family & Friends,

A sister church burned to the ground in Paradise, California and most of its people are without homes after a massive wildfire swept through their town last month. We, as a church family, would love to bless these brothers and sisters in Christ by coming together and collectively giving to our special Fifth Sunday Offering, December  30th.

The first $10,000 of our offering will go toward a benevolence ministry for the people of Calvary Baptist Church in Paradise. We are working through our association home office, which is coordinating this multi-church relief effort. While insurance will eventually cover some of the major expenses caused by this catastrophe, our gift, along with many others, will help alleviate current day-to-day needs by providing food, clothing, rent and various daily necessities.

The remainder of our Fifth Sunday Offering will go toward helping pay our debt off early. This is something we've done with our previous three buildings and are planning to do with our present Worship Center. Here is a rundown of where we are:
$8 million - Total cost of Worship Center
$6 million - Amount borrowed
$2 million - Mortgage paid to date
$4 million - Remaining mortgage balance
In four years one-half of our building has been paid, and one-third of our mortgage has been paid.
God has done a great work in a short amount of time through the generosity of His people. Let's continue to be good stewards, as well as bless our brothers and sisters in California.

May we pray seriously and give generously,
Scott Poling,

Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. -2 Corinthians 9:6-7


Giving online is safe, secure, and convenient.

Text Giving

Giving by text is as easy and intentional as sending a text.

Text the word “Help” to 630.590.0202 for complete instructions.

Giving Statements

Giving statements are available online and are emailed or sent by first class mail annually.  If you gave but did not receive a giving receipt or statement, please contact the church office.

A note about giving statements: Online giving is credited to the individual, and giving in the offering plate is most often credited to the families’ head-of-household.  For example let's assume the family Jack & Jill Smith give by check in the offering plate.  That contribution will be recorded under the head-of-household, Jack Smith.  Now let's assume that Jill Smith decides to give online.  The online contribution will be recorded to Jill Smith.  Jill can view & download giving statements specifically related to her individual online giving, but she cannot see family contributions given in the offering plate because they have been recorded to the families’ head-of-household, Jack.  Jack needs his own online account to view those contributions.  The two statements together represent the total giving for the family.  To avoid the trouble of multiple statements, often families will give online using a shared account with a shared email address and password.

Offering Envelopes

Personalized offering envelopes can be mailed to your home monthly free of charge.  To subscribe contact the church office.

Bill Pay

Most banks offer an online bill payment service that will issue checks thru the mail.  Harvest does not recommend this method of giving because it lacks the security and speed of online giving, and it costs additional in-house processing expense.
