Life Groups

Life Groups meet in different places, from homes to the church office, and at different times through the week. These are groups formed from the interests and needs that others may have in common. These groups can be highly creative and varied. Each group may center on a certain topic or a similar interest. Discipleship and relationships evolve and are nurtured from each group.

We run life group semesters every 12 weeks.  If you wish to be involved please call the church office 804-353-2997 or sign up here.

Chocolate, coffee, tea and lots of pampering for each other! The desire is for this to be a mom’s only event without children.  Nursing babies are welcome.  To find out more information please email Cheryl at for details and to signup.

Of the many challenges being faced by men today, a lack of knowing God’s vision and dream for their lives is foremost. Men often don’t know the fullness of the Father’s love and often choose not to walk in relationship with one another.   At HRC, men are stepping into the fullness of the Father’s love and embracing the God given talents to do His work here on earth.   As a group, the men at Harvest are coming together to gain an understanding of what it means to have “Vision” and “Dreams” for their lives and family.  We encourage one another and keep each other accountable by being in relationship with one another.  As we mature as Godly men, we are stepping into all that God has created for us to accomplish while growing deeper in love with Jesus and those that we care for and cherish.
