Beginning the second Sunday of January we will begin a new sermon series entitled "The Glorious Church: Exploring what it means to be part of the body of Christ". Not only will it explain the principles that Harvest Church was founded on and continues to rest on, it will answer questions like these.....

Why do some people leave the church?
Why is it sometimes hard to find close friends within the church?
Why do people fight at church board meetings?
What is the proper way to deal with sin within the church?
Why isn't the church going the way I want it to?
What is church discipline?
Why aren't people more friendly at church?
Why does it seem like the decisions are made by just a few people and not the entire church?
What is a deacon?
What does the pastor do during the week?
How can I be more involved?
Where is Harvest Church going?

Come join us as we explore the Church together from God's Word.

**** Introducing ****  Interim Pastor Bob Brueggen

Pastor Bob Brueggen has joined us in ministry while Pastor Charles is away. Pastor Bob started his ministry with Harvest Church on August 1, and besides preaching duties he has been busy getting to know people and working toward further developing our small groups ministry for this fall. Pastor Bob has most recently served as Pastor of Adult Ministries at First Evangelical Free Church in Maplewood, MN, the 'mother' church of Harvest Church. A short biography of Bob and family follows:

Bob & Dottie Brueggen live in Woodbury and have been married for 26 years.  They have three children: Bethany (19), Matthew (15) and Jonathan (12).  Dottie is a RN at Woodwinds Hospital and Bob has been in ministry for over 20 years and served churches in Nebraska, Michigan and Minnesota.  He is a graduate of the University of Nebraska (BS, 1979), Grace Theological Seminary (ThM, 1986), and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (DMin, 2006).  Bob enjoys traveling with his family, reading, college football, outdoor activities but most of all being with family and good friends. His passion is to bring lives to Christ and Christ into everyday living.  His life quest is to live for the good of others and the glory of God (Galatians 1:24).

Pastor Bob served with Harvest Church until March 1, 2007, when he began a full time position at Five Oaks Church in Woodbury.

Sundays

        October 1, Worship Service at 6:00PM at New Life Church

    Last service at 6:00PM at New Life church building ...
        October 8, Worship Service at 6:00PM at New Life Church 
                - Communion, as part of the worship service

Here it is: The Big Announcement ...

Please Note: "Permanent" Change in Worship Service Time and Location

Beginning October 15, Harvest Church is now meeting for worship on Sunday Morning at 10:30AM at Century Jr. High School (map), just off Highway 97 on the south side of Forest Lake. Century Jr. High is just 6 miles up Highway 61 from downtown Hugo. For directions, see the 'Directions/Contact Us' page.

This change in worship time and location starts a new chapter in the life of Harvest Church. We believe this move will allow us to better serve the people of Hugo, by providing a Sunday morning worship opportunity, and now, with this new location, allow us to better serve the people of Forest Lake. While we will not be changing the fundamentals of Harvest Church, we are using this time as an opportunity to re-evaluate all we do. Come join us for this "new start".

This also means that after October 8th, we will no longer be having a Sunday evening service at New Life Church in Hugo.

Please note that previous scheduling makes the Century Jr. High School building unavailable to us for certain Sundays after the first of next year. On those days, we expect we will be using another school building in Forest Lake as an alternate location, and the service time will remain the same. Please make note of this, then listen for further announcements or watch this page for notice of any change of location.
