It's harvest time.
...“The food that keeps me going is that I do the will of the One who sent me, finishing the work he started. As you look around right now, wouldn’t you say that in about four months it will be time to harvest? Well, I’m telling you to open your eyes and take a good look at what’s right in front of you...It’s harvest time! —John 4:34-35
Harvest-Time Worship Center has been a Christ-centered fellowship for over 60 years in the city of Salem, NJ. Our focus has always been to bring people to a saving knowledge of Jesus, and to help them mature into disciples that understand the focus of our life is to bring glory to God.
As a fellowship we honor and support our local community. For many years we have also supported missions and missionaries throughout the world. We walk in the joy that Jesus has provided and are excited to discover all that God has planned to use us to bring in a great harvest in these last days.
