For The City: Waco (an update from intern Caroline Thornton)

“Our group signed up through For The City: Waco to partner with Arrow. […] The beauty of this service opportunity for our group is that we do not have to organize every person's schedule to line up for one big event, but instead, one of us or a few of us at a time can respond to Arrow and offer to take a meal, clean up a house, install a ceiling ...

Faithfulness in the Past, Loving-Kindness for the Next

The Brooks household has grown in many ways since first connecting with Harris Creek. The family is different now and the same could be said of Harris Creek. No with 2 kids added to the Brooks household and with 2 campuses now making up Harris Creek, God has continued to demonstrate great faithfulness in remaining present with us.

The Fear of Safety

It only takes one conversation with John Bernhart to realize he is mature for his age, experienced in spiritual wisdom and disciplined devotion beyond his years as a twenty-something. For that alone, Harris Creek cannot simply claim him as a model prototype of our ministry efforts, but rather we are quick to applaud the work of his primary faith-influencers (his parents) and the previous saints who have shaped John's faith. It is noteworthy though ...

Story of Restoration

We know how God's presence was evident in previous generations, and we invite God to make Himself known in our time (Habakkuk 3:2). God's story has always been one about restoring peace, and with the "Our Turn" campaign, we recognize our opportunity to see how each person's story is a glimpse to God's greater narrative of peace/welfare. Steven and Jessica Gereghty, covenant members at our Downtown Campus, openly share about a recent ...

By Faith

We are delighted that people of all ages are resonating with the God-given vision of the "Our Turn" campaign. As a church (in a college town) devoted to the discipleship of the next generation, it is important to us that we hear our college students actively involved with the project, regardless of how much longer they may be located in the Waco area. Kara Miller, a Baylor student and a ...
