What to expect when you visit us

It can be a little intimidating when you come to a church for the first time so we want to give you a small glimpse into what you may experience. 


Covid-19: We want to keep you safe, so we disinfect our church and chairs, practice social distancing, and take temperatures of everyone entering our buildings. Masks are not mandatory in our main sanctuary but  are in our Youth Building where those with compromised health issues can come and worship together. 


COME AS YOU ARE

You will find that many in the church will be dressed in shorts and flip flops or jeans and t-shirts. Now, if you feel more comfortable in slacks, sports coats, or dresses that’s great. Come as you are.


YOU WILL BE GREETED

You will receive a warm greeting, a smile, and a bulletin at the front door of our building or sanctuary from one of our Greeters. The Harbor Church "First Impressions" team will help answer any questions you may have and if you have children, they will help you get them to their classrooms. 


FRIENDLY PEOPLE

The Harbor Church people are friendly. Don’t be surprised if someone introduces themselves and introduces you to others in the church. You will NOT be asked to stand and introduce yourself in our services. That would be awkward for all us. LOL!


MUSIC IN THE SERVICES

You will see three screens in our sanctuary projecting our music, sermon notes, and videos. We have a contemporary worship style centered on the message of Jesus Christ. Also, you may hear some original music written by our band. 


PREACHING IN THE SERVICES

Preaching by Pastor David Towner and his team is mostly expository but can also be topical. You can expect the teaching to be Biblical, theological, and practical with a “Home Application” section you can use at home for the week. The preaching team does use a lot of humor, videos, and stage props in their sermons. You will not be bored! In your bulletin you will find an outline in which you can write notes from each week’s sermons.


CHILDREN SUNDAY MORNING CLASSES

NOTE: Until further notice all on-site children's classes are closed. Please go here for online Harbor Kids!


We have class rooms for nursery, toddler, 3-K, and 1-2nd grade and 3-5th grade in both services. Your children will have fun with trained teachers who love kids! As you drop them off into their classroom you will receive a number through our computerized security system. This is a security number that keeps the children safe and helps our teachers make sure the children leave with their parents.


STUDENT GATHERING

The Harbor Students (6-12th grade) meet on Sunday evenings.  This is a complete service for students that includes Student Led worship, and interactive and challenging lesson, and Small Group times with students their own age.
