- Sunday: 9:00a & 11:00a
The Mission of Harvest Bible Chapel is "to make disciples". The Missions ministry of the church seeks to fulfill that mission via church planting. Thus, the Local Outreach aspect of Harvest Missions helps Harvest Peoria shine the light of Jesus in the local community.
This is accomplished by actively involving our body in the life of the surrounding community with the specific intent of helping felt needs, in order to act as a light to draw others back to the local church. These activities may be decidedly evangelistic, or they may just be compassionate in nature. But they will always allow the church to be a local light and eventually lead to sharing Jesus.
