WHAT TO EXPECT
 

Harford Community Church     2504 Creswell Road   Bel Air, MD  21015  (directions)

Welcome to Harford Community Church! If you're searching for a relaxed church environment with a family feel, you've found it here.  If you are looking for a group of people who desire to make a difference in the community and region, you’ve come to the right place. 

 

Where we meet: 

From I – 95:  Take Exit 80 (Rt. 543) towards Churchville.  In less than a mile you’ll see our sign on your left.  Turn left into our driveway. 

From Bel Air – Take 543 east towards I – 95.  You are close when you  see the Highlands School on your left.  We are just a little further down 543 on the right.  You will see our sign and will be making a right turn into our driveway. 

*Please note:  Beginning June 11th we will have one service at 10am for the summer.  Our Coffee and Connection time will be immediately after the service.

You will be welcomed by greeters who will answer any questions you may have upon arriving.  We invite you to our Fellowship Hall for coffee and light snacks after the 9am service and before the 10:45am service beginning at 10:15am.

Our Sunday Services (9am and 10:45am) are designed to help each of us engage with God, grow spiritually, and connect with our community of faith.  The Sunday celebration is really like a drama of our faith in every day life.  Daily we are called to worship God, pray, be in His Word, connect with other believers and minister God’s encouragement, inspiration, challenge and forgiveness to one another through testimony, communion and giving. Our prayer is that each person will know God better for having devoted the time to worship.  By experiencing God's presence among us we can learn more about his heart, will, and purposes and we can connect with His plan for our lives through faith in Jesus.  Through contemporary worship music and projected lyrics, prayer, weekly communion, and inspiring Bible-based messages we invite God to capture our hearts and move us to full devotion in Christ.  As we leave we carry His presence into our every day lives.

 

We use various creative elements like video clips, interviews, and real life testimonies of our involvements with God, desiring to picture a life of faith in authentic and genuine ways.  We hope to make the gospel of Jesus accessible and understandable no matter where we are on our spiritual journey.  

 

One thing folks say after they've been with us for awhile is, "We really love it here, because from one Sunday to the next, you never know what will happen!  We are never afraid to try new things."  We just want you to know, we like change, so keep checking our website for service times and places.  We have been known to worship in the park or meet outside too. 

 

I have children and or teens:   

*Please note:  Beginning June 11th we will have one service at 10am for the summer.  Children will be dismissed to their classes, but the teens will be taking a break from their small groups.  Check our calendar for some fun outings they will be planning throughout the summer.

CROSSWALK
is our Children's Ministry.  We believe children are a gift from God and we treasure each one of them!  HCC Crosswalk Children's Ministry offers a safe environment filled with fun and creative programming.  

9am Service - A Toddler class is available throughout the entire service.  Older kids [PreK (age 3 & diaper graduate)-5th grade] will join their families for worship and will be dismissed to their classes @ 9:15am.  Our CrossWalk kids use the Gospel Project curriculum that takes them on a chronological walk through the Bible via stories.  We do this in an interactive, ages-divided, classroom type setting.  Included are Bible memory verses, engaging activities, and follow-up materials for families to use at home. We have a self-serve infant room available at any time during the service downstairs with live streaming of the service so that you won't miss anything..

10:45am Service - The second service for kids is our CrossWalk Remix which will build upon the same stories from first service, but in one large group format - including PreK through grade 5 - with application projects, art, worship, music, drama, and service.  On the 5th Sunday of the month, this group will share something in adult worship they've learned during CrossWalk Remix.  Each children's program stands alone, or can be enjoyed in the same day without feeling like it's a repeat.  We have a self-serve infant room available at any time during the service downstairs with live streaming of the service so that you won't miss anything.
 

J-Walkers is our Youth Ministry (6th through 12th grade).  Teens stay in the service for our worship and communion time and then are dismissed to their classes with the J-Walkers Ministry Team (1st and 3rd Sundays of the month - 9am service only)  The 2nd, 4th, and 5th Sundays they stay in for the entire message time.  The teens will remain in the service all Sundays for the 11am service.  J-Walkers will often discuss the same themes being taught during the adult Sunday morning message time so families can discuss the implications of the biblical lesson together after the service. 

Dress: Casual.  You will see everything from an occasional suit, to shorts and flip flops in the warmer months.  Generally you’ll see jeans to business casual.  We sense God is more interested in the quality of our hearts for worship then the quality of our dress.  Our key suggestion is modesty.
