What is Fellowship?
We believe fellowship is one of the blessings of Christ’s church. The church is more than a place to hear sermons. It’s a family of believers. The early church was devoted to fellowship. “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42). Fellowship is a certain friendship and sharing of life together. Fellowship in the church is precious. The Apostle John writes, “indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ” (1 John 1:3). John goes on to describe Christian fellowship in the church this way, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). When we walk in the light of God’s word, we share together in all that God has done for us including the forgiveness of our sins.
don’t neglect Fellowship
Jesus called us to be a part of his church when he said, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18). Furthermore, the Bible encourages believers not to neglect fellowship. The writer of Hebrews says, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:24-25). At Harvest Church, we enjoy fellowship in worship and the Lord’s Supper each Sunday. We observe the Lord’s Supper in the morning service each Sunday except the last Sunday of the month. On the last Sunday of the month we observe the Lord’s Supper in our evening service. We also enjoy a fellowship lunch on the first Sunday of each month.
