Keep those pictures coming in to us; this site will be as special and memorable as WE make it!

Major Changes in Harvest Time's Online Resources

We're making some changes to help you access Harvest Time information better and have fun doing it, too! Two things we want you to be aware of:

1. Flickr

What's a flickr? Flickr is the leading photo website on the entire Web, and now Harvest Time has its own Flickr site!

You can see Harvest Time's pictures by visiting this address:

There are tons of great features, albums to see and no passwords or accounts are needed to view pictures.

Do you have some great HT pictures you'd like us to post? Send in your great digital pictures to the church office. (Sorry - no time to scan!) It can be a photo of a church event, or even a great picture of Greenwich. Remember... these photos, once submitted, will be posted online. Don't panic - if you see a picture of yourself online that you'd like pulled, just let us know. We aim to please! So... start sending us your best HT pictures!

2. Airset Calendar to be replaced by Google Calendar

I'm afraid that the Airset experiment is not working out. Although it has some great features, the need for a password can create extra steps and annoyances for some people. Also, we do have a privacy concern with Airset as there may not be sufficient anonymity, particularly as the church continues to grow. For these reasons, we will no longer be updating the Airset calendar. It will not be taken down right away, so if you need data, it will still be available.

In place of Airset, we will begin to use Google Calendar as a web calendar. Google Calendar is up and coming and I think you'll enjoy it. The link to the calendar is impossibly long, so access it via the links on this blog or through the home page of our website at No passwords needed! We'll continue to update the events list on the website, of course.

(Bonus for Gmail users: if you are using Google Calendar as your personal calendar, you will be able to subscribe to HT's Google calendar. How cool is that?)

Please contact us if you have any comments or questions about these two steps, and thanks!

The Siloam Band

Tonight Mid Point Cafe features the music of Siloam Band. Doors open at 6:30pm, event starts at 7:30 p m. Donations at the door: Adults $10 Teens $5.

The Siloam Band, winners of New England Musicians Expo national talent showcase, takes the stage with authority and passion beyond their years. Alden Skidd, the 14 year old lead singer, is a gifted songwriter and guitarist, whose passionate vocals sing of God's mercy. Georgia, provides a solid foundation for the band through her classical training and rock influences on keyboards. Georgia's voice adds an airy texture to the strong harmonies. Gabrielle plays an electric 5 string violin with boldness and energy. Although classically trained she is not afraid to use her pedal board to challenge the guitar solos. Auguste, the youngest member, is a powerhouse on vocals and an accomplished organ player, who co-wrote with Georgia the track "Breakdown".

Become A PowerPoint Star!

This is your chance to become a PowerPoint star...

If you've always wanted to have your finger on what's happening in our services - literally - then this is the opportunity you've been looking for!

Our Worship Coordinator, Sue DiPalma, is on the hunt for fresh volunteers for the PowerPoint ministry. In our technically advanced era, we've come to rely on presentation software for our song lyrics, announcements and sermon notes. You can pick up some new computer skills and bless the congregation by learning to run PowerPoint in either the first or the second service. As a special bonus, you'll also get to hang out in the back of the room with the cool sound guys and ushers!

If you're interested, please call the church office at (203) 531-7778.

The Alpha Course at Harvest Time

Three times a year, Harvest Time Church offers the Alpha Course. Alpha is an eleven week study for those interested in finding out more about the Christian faith, and is the most popular course of its kind in the world. Some 8 million people worldwide have been to Alpha!

  • Does God Heal Today?

This Fall, Alpha will meet from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Tuesdays beginning September 12.

There is no registration fee for Alpha; coffee and dessert will also be offered free of charge each week. Interested in attending the Alpha Course, or maybe helping out on one?

Cleansing Stream Seminar Returns

Cleansing Stream Returns to Harvest Time

Click Here to Register Today!

Meeting times:

Tuesday evenings at 7 PM, beginning September 5

What’s It All About?

Cleansing Stream is an eight-week seminar which helps us to understand that true Christian growth means developing a Christ-like character. True discipleship is more than simply acquiring theological knowledge, it’s cooperating with the Holy Spirit as He works to make us look more and more like Jesus every day. With this in mind, Cleansing Stream addresses some troublesome areas of behavior and ways of thinking that perhaps we grew accustomed to in our life “before Christ.” Born out of a conviction that radical change is possible, this seminar will challenge you to reach out for the Lord’s transforming power in important areas such as:

* Walking in the Spirit as opposed to walking in the flesh

* Developing a lifestyle of worship

* Seeing your home become a place of worship and God’s peace

* Learning to speak words that minister blessing and life

* Walking in forgiveness

* Closing the door on the occult and unclean behaviors

In addition to live teachings and small group discussion, participants listen to anointed teaching messages on CD and read several books by well-known Christian authors who convey powerful truths about the freedom that’s ours in Christ.

The highlight of Cleansing Stream is a weekend retreat where, in an atmosphere of worship, participants pray to break and renounce thought patterns, behaviors and influences that have kept them from enjoying the abundant life that Jesus died to bring them. Many Harvest Time members have described the Cleansing Stream Seminar and retreat as life-changing and have testified that they will never be the same again!

(Please note that there are costs associated with this seminar for materials ($90.00 for Singles & $125.00 for Married Couples) and the retreat (TBA) which are set by the Cleansing Stream ministry and over which Harvest Time has no control.)

Five great, free bible resources!

There's a surprising amount of high-quality Bible study material and helps available online nowadays, and with just a little effort your library can exceed what once would have required literally yards of bookshelf space. Let's look at five of these, each one of which has its own unique flavor.

Christians haven't ignored society's increased reliance on the Web, and are also taking note of the "Web 2.0" phenomenon, where web applications can replace, or nearly replace desktop software. A new entry in the online bible study field,, consciously takes a Web 2.0 approach by allowing you tag verse and save bookmarks. Several different Bible versions are available and they seem to be adding features. Note: this is a beta release.
This site boasts an impressive number of Bible resources and free commentaries, and also hosts a lot of articles, audio resources, pastoral and worship resources, etc. Visually, this site is a litle cluttered, but I can excuse that because they are packing so much into it. It's a great place to poke around.
Those who want to do a little more theological digging should try out This site also seems to be growing by leaps and bounds, probably capitalizing off the interest in their NET Bible translation. If you want to read a deep, exegetical commentary on the Book of Nahum, this is the place for you! Another bonus: the organization not only enables you to freely download their translation, but to use it without fear of copyright infringement.

Blue Letter Bible
I've had this one bookmarked for a long time - and for good reason! It has some great features, including easy phrase searches. If you still rely on Strong's Concordance, you'll find it a joy to be able to search phrases like "Kingdom of God" without going blind in the process. Lots of study tools round out the picture, including audio and video from preachers past and present such as J. Vernon McGee, Ray Stedman, and many of the well-known Calvary Chapel pastors.

This last one is a real gem - the most powerful free Bible software you are likely to find in the English language. This is not a website, but a free software download for Windows and Pocket PC. Developer Rick Meyers believes in "freely you have received, freely give," and he demonstrated it here. He compares E-Sword to $500 packages that the typical layperson finds inaccessible - and he's not bragging. A number of additional "modules" can be downloaded to add extra dictionaries, concordances, and other well-known works. There are powerful note-taking features and basic word processing for your own writing. A fuller feature list is available here.

Whether you're looking for a good daily devotional or are up to your elbows in serious study, even sermon preparation, these free resources will prove to be a great blessing.

Popular 40 Days of Purpose course returns to Harvest Time!

Find out what on Earth you're here for!

What is 40 Days of Purpose?

  • A spiritual growth emphasis in which we'll discover and learn to walk in God's purposes for our lives.
  • A journey in which we'll explore God's 5 purposes for each one of our lives and answer the question, "What On Earth Am I Here For?"
  • A national campaign that literally thousands of churches have participated in.

40 Days of Purpose is based on the book The Purpose-Driven Life, by Pastor Rick Warren. Over 25 million copies of this book have been sold, making it the best-selling non-fiction book... ever! Forty brief, daily readings help us connect with God's plan for our lives. We'll also study a special Purpose-Driven Life curriculum in small groups over six weeks.

The Campaign begins with a Simulcast of a message by Pastor Rick Warren on Tuesday evening, June 6. On Wednesday, June 7th, we'll also begin reading The Purpose-Driven Life together, one chapter a day.

Join us and discover the excitement of purpose-driven living!

Revival meetings are over - revival will go on!

We give thanks to the Lord for His goodness over the past several weeks - the final count of decisions for Christ during the time Tommie Zito's ministry was among us was over 1380! Many people reported that they led friends and family members to the Lord, some of whom they had been praying for for many years.

This past Sunday, Pastor Glenn delivered a powerful message on looking honestly at our ways. Our motives may be right, but our ways may not always be according to the Spirit of Christ. In both services we also received an inspiring and challenging prophetic message from our friend David Wagner. In the evening, our network churches gathered together for worship and to hear a great word from Pastor Jan Nel about the coming move of God in our region. What a great day in God's house!

Continue to press in with us in prayer for a greater and deeper work of the Spirit in our midst.

May 17th Revival Update

Last night was another night of celebration in God's house, as 164 decision cards were brought in and "thrown before the Lord!"

Read this powerful testimony: a man went to share the Lord with someone who was in a coma. Although perhaps not being 100% sure if the sick person could could hear him, he prayed for his friend anyway. At the point in the prayer where the person would ordinarily ask Christ into his heart, the comatose man opened his eyes and squeezed the hand of the man who was praying! The Word of God is truly alive and powerful.

People are picking up the habit of sharing Christ all over. A young security guard was led to the Lord in the mall today while helping a sister find a store. Another sister in the congregation led four members of her family to Christ at dinner!

Thank God for what He's doing!

Come out tonight for more great reports and a wonderful time of seeking God, at 7 PM.

May 16th Revival Update

Join us tonight for a 7 pm revival service - this week let's press in to God!

This past Saturday night there was joy in the house as over 100 salvations were reported. It's starting to rain down decision cards!

We also basked in the glory of God and were encouraged to "ask God for anything!" One sister reported an instantaneous healing as she did so.

Join us tonight and see that anything can happen - and probably will!

May 14th Revival Update - Meetings Extended

A message from Pastor Glenn:

Dear Friends,

This past week we experienced a tremendous outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Harvest Time. Each night has been characterized by a different sense of His presence — some nights have been filled with prophecy, some with dancing and rejoicing and others with intense intercession for Greenwich and the region. As of Friday evening, we have seen over 700 documented decisions for Christ! Among the converts are Muslims, Hindus, Jews and Jehovah’s Witnesses. Many long-time members of our congregation have found new grace to lead family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors to the Lord. One businessman in our congregation led his younger brother to the Lord after praying 23 years for his salvation!

Because of the tremendous move we have experienced, we are extending the revival meetings with Tommie Zito into this week. We will meet tonight at 7:00 p.m. and Tuesday-Thursday at 7:00 p.m. On Wednesday-Friday, we will meet at 10:30 a.m. for the personal evangelism training that has turned our congregation upside down. We hope you will join us!

Love and blessings!

Revival Update: May 11

From Pastor Glenn:

Yesterday was our second day of personal evangelism training and practicing with the team from Tommie Zito Ministries. In the last two days we have had gathered over 350 commitment cards with decisions for Christ. After receiving the training, many long-time Believers have found new grace to lead family members, co-workers, friends and neighbors to Christ. A 21 year old woman who was saved during the Sunday morning service took the training on Tuesday morning and came last night with a half dozen people that she has led to Christ.

The sanctuary was packed for the 7:00 p.m. service last night. The worship EXPLODED and the entire sanctuary was dancing before the Lord for almost an hour. At the end of the service Tommie Zito prayed over each person for an impartation of evangelistic anointing—people were out under the power of God all over the sanctuary and foyer. I have experienced revival in several places, but last night’s service was one of the most amazing I’ve ever been in.

We will meet at 7:00 p.m. tonight and tomorrow night. We will have evangelism training tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m. We will also have an anointing service Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. We would love to see you! Blessings!

The Harvest is coming in!

Amazing things are happening this week as the people of God are experiencing the "Day and Night Church!" In the daytime, teams of people are sharing God's love on the streets and elsewhere. At nights, people are soaking in His Presence and seeking more of His empowering for service!

Here's a word from Pastor Glenn:

Monday evening Tommie Zito spoke a powerful prophetic word over our congregation that confirmed many of the words that have been spoken over us by others. Significantly, he spoke many of the same words that David Wagner spoke over us, including supernatural debt cancellation and the release of significant financial resources for the work of the ministry. I felt as Tommie was speaking over us that God was releasing the fulfillment of these words now. I believe we will see significant things happen immediately.

Tuesday morning a large group attended a training session in personal evangelism and then we “hit the streets.” On Greenwich Avenue I personally held the hand of a Muslim man, Ali, and prayed for him. I led a man named Gene in the sinner’s prayer. I walked by one of our Harvest Time members as she was leading a woman to the Lord in her car—the woman was in a pool of tears. I encourage you to join us this evening and tomorrow morning as we “hit the streets” again. Love and blessings!
And again, yesterday, Harvest Time experienced one of its most amazing days, between the action on the streets and a life-changing service at night. One man came to the Lord as he was walking his dog around the property!

Do not miss the remaining training sessions and services!

Meetings With Tommie Zito Next Week At Harvest Time!

Evangelist Tommie Zito and his Crusade Team will be with us from Sunday, May 7th through Saturday, May 13th.

Tommie not only has an amazing anointing to lead people to Christ, but his larger vision is to see congregations themselves receive a powerful evangelistic anointing.

During the weekday mornings there will be a school of evangelism. Revival services will be held each night at 7:00 p.m. Tommie's services are marked by a heavy presence of the Lord with healings and conversions.

Join us in prayer and join us for these life-changing meetings!

National Day of Prayer Today

Join us today in lifting up our nation in prayer, and specifically ask God to be merciful to us. The theme of this year's National Day of Prayer is "America, Honor God."

The following prayer has been composed for the day by Dr. Henry Blackaby, who is the Honorary Chariman of the National Day of Prayer:

Oh Heavenly Father, You have made Yourself known to us as a nation by Your mighty works throughout our history. From the beginning, You have been with us through many wars and conflicts; Your right arm has saved us. We have been amazingly and graciously blessed.

Today, we confess our sin of not responding to Your right to rule in our lives and our nation. Too often we have despised and rejected Your will while imposing our own, and we are now facing the consequences of our disobedience. Draw us back to Yourself, that we may return to Your ways once again. Without You we can do nothing. You have promised that if we honor You, You will once again honor this great nation.

That is our fervent prayer. For Your honor and glory we pray, Amen.

  • Lots of new text and information on the church in general such as our history and the story of how God led us to our new property.
  • Complete calendar information which includes online registration for many events - especially appealing to those of you who never remember to sign those clipboards at the Welcome Center!

  • Schedules for ministries such as Greeters, Nursery, PowerPoint, Ushers, and Worship Team are now all online (please note: private information such as e-mails and phone numbers will not appear).

Website changes to check out -

Hello all! We've been working to upgrade the readability and usefulness of our website. Stop by and explore - although it doesn't yet contain everything we'd like, we're adding to it all the time. Already there are more news events and more helpful ministry features.

Attention Ministry leaders!
We're now able to upload documents or messages you'd like your teams to have onto the Web. For example, we have recently posted the ushers' and PowerPoint teams' schedules, as well as class notes for Christian Life Workshops 2 and 3. For an example, go to the site, then click on Ministries, then Media and Tech, and you'll see the PowerPoint ministry schedule.

We'll be working to flesh out more areas, but we need your help. Send anything you would liek to appear on the site to Pastor Nick. We can accept just about any format - Word, PDF, even pictures of your ministry in action!

Please note; if you do not see your ministry there yet, it's not because we forgot about you! We will gradually get everyone up there so the congregation and the community can see how we at Harvest Time are reaching out with the love of the Lord!

Testimony: Bernie C.

I always said that I am too old and weak to do missions, but this Mission Trip to Trinidad stayed in my heart, so I said I need a confirmation from the Lord to go. I was reading 40-Days of Purpose and it said that you are not too old for missions. Some of my friends also gave me some kind of confirmation, but I did not listen. Then, one night when I arrived at our missions meeting just as I came in the door Steve pointed his finger at me with a strong and stern voice and said, “You are going on this Missions Trip.” I got scared and I went. This trip was the best blessing that the Lord has given me.

On the first trip to Kistow House, my first time to go to an orphanage, I was shocked and in tears. I looked at the eyes of the kids and saw there is something in their eyes that was missing and it touched my whole being. When we started the singing and decorating the Christmas tree the kids became lively and with smiles they helped with the decorations. The giving of the sneakers and especially the bicycle gave glow to their eyes and they became very excited and everyone wanted to get the first ride. That was fun!

On the VBS at Lady Ho Choy I was in charge of the children’s snack. It was just a joy to serve the down syndrome teenagers because they love the Lord. I got the idea of asking them to sing while waiting so everyone wanted to sing and dance and we all enjoyed singing together and one girl danced the African dance. That was great!

The 2nd VBS at St. Mary’s was with over 200 kids. While having the snack with the teenagers, there was one boy who carried his test paper with the grade of 95 and was trying to show it to anyone who would be interested. Me and my coworker focused on this need and we gave him praise and advice about continuing his education. He and the others interacted and talked about working hard to study and have an education. Then I heard that those kids over 18 are sent out in the street because they only house kids up to 18 years old, and sometimes they have nothing to eat out there so they go back to the orphanage to beg for food. I cannot do anything but pray for these kids and their future daily.

The dump experience was great. I was giving out tracks and these kids were following me and asking for tracks for their whole family. I was so excited while giving out these tracks. What I have noticed in these areas, the families are really poor but the children are different – they are happier and when you look in their eyes they are content. Then I realized that these kids are blessed because they have parents and they care and love and protect and feed them and do other personal matters in the family.

I ended up with diversified job helping in the shoe box preparation – organizing and checking the contents, removing the chocolate candy that had melted in some (!) and setting up a system for quick distribution. At the Faith Center we gave over (200++) gifts and shoeboxes and I bathed in my own perspiration.

I also joined the Salvation Show and that was a great show. At the end we stood in the back of the church. When the first call for salvation came only a few people stood up. We were all praying in the back. On the 2nd call a man went to the altar and over 100 people stood up and 6-8 orphaned children received the Lord. (These were the kids we ministered to at Hope Center!) That was a great night and the joy that I experienced there was indescribable.

It is great to work for the Lord. I came back a changed person and if it is God’s Will, I will go again.
