Sunday Service will be Live Streamed at 9:30 am Sunday Morning on our Website and the Harvest Facebook Page.
Updated May 26, 2020
Per the recommendation of the CDC and the Governor’s current Stay-at-home order, Harvest will not be holding in-person services until further notice due to the spread of COVID-19. We believe these decisions honor the governmental authorities God has put over us and allow us to love our neighbors well. When Multnomah County enters Phase 1 and begins to open up under certain parameters, the Elders and staff at Harvest will be wrestling with these matters about when the right time will be to open the doors at Harvest for services again.
At this time, Harvest is holding some small groups and other activities onsite that meet the 25-person limit. We expect that appropriate social distancing and sanitizing measures are taking place to ensure the safety of those in attendance.
In addition, our church office will have limited hours. Please contact us at 503-492-9800, our website (harvestworld.com) or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or have any needs that we can help with.
How is Harvest worshiping together during this time?
On Sundays at 9:30 am, we are gathering for Church at Home, a live streamed worship service featuring prayer, Scripture reading, worship, preaching, and more. During production of our services, we will adhere to the Governor’s mandate of avoiding groups of more than 25 people. You can find the order of worship, weekly resources, some next steps, and more on our livestream page, which will be updated weekly on Fridays.

How should I respond to COVID-19?
Though situations like these can stir up fear and anxiety, God is sovereign over all things, and our ultimate hope is found in Jesus. Although we won’t be gathering for services and events, we encourage you to stay connected to the church body through calls, texts, and online engagement. Pray for those affected by this virus as we wait for Christ to return and bring about a day without sickness, suffering, and death.
To minimize the risk of illness, here are a few practical things you can do to love your neighbor:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
