Harvest Community Church is involved with the following local ministries and global missions. If you are interested in serving with and/or supporting these groups see the contact information provided or contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org
East Clark County Young Life, Kathleen Eldredge - Young Life is an organization that aims to introduce middle school and high school students to Jesus by first building relationships with them, entering into their world, having a blast, and "earning the right to be heard". Young Life aims to reach students who may never set foot in a church or kids who are considered "farthest out kids" to show them who Jesus is and that He loves and cares for them no matter what circumstances they face or decisions they make. In addition to supporting Kathleen Eldredge financially every month in her ministry with Young Life, there are other leaders and committee members who are regular attenders at Harvest. We aim to encourage, support, and partner with those who are involved in this ministry. If you want to learn more about what Young Life is or how you can get involved, click here or talk to Kathleen.
Open House Ministries- OHM in downtown Vancouver is a shelter for homeless families in the greater Clark County-Portland area. The facility has 33 rooms sheltering up to 107 people, 50% of whom are children. They provide case management, work skills, and continuing education. Visit www.sheltered.org for more info. Harvest supports OHM by participating in the Adopt-a-room program: collecting household items to fill a room as one becomes available. The items that we collect to place in a room are items the family gets to take with them when they graduate the program and are ready to begin their new life independent of the shelter.
Pathways Pregnancy Clinic of Camas/Washougal- Pathways is a pregnancy and family resource center that empowers women and men to make life affirming choices. They provide free resources for women and their families who find themselves in an unexpected pregnancy or difficult situation. They aim to care for the mothers and their families, as well as their babies. Visit www.pathways180-partners.com for more info and for recent newsletters.
Kent Place Assisted Living - Regular visits are made to this care facility in our neighborhood to show the love of Jesus for those who are elderly, ill and lonely.
All God's Children International, Ethiopia & Haiti
As a church, we financially support AGCI and their work in orphan care specifically in Ethiopia and Haiti, both places we have gone on short term mission trips through AGCI.
How you can help: For the small amount of $35 a month, you can take part in the care of an orphan at Rivers of Hope in Haiti (the orphanage that our Haiti team recently visited). Your contribution for a child will go towards food, medical needs, caregivers, the basic upkeep of their living space, education, and the chance to have individual attention. As a sponsor, you will recieve updates on your child with specific prayer requests and the joy of knowing that you are caring for a sweet orphan!
