    New to Harvest?

    Welcome. We're glad you're here.

    Harvest Bible Chapel is a church that seeks the vertical, full expression of God’s glory. One church on multiple campuses, with James MacDonald serving as our Senior Pastor. Together we're going after high-impact, window-rattling, life-altering worship services and discipleship ministry that gives glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The gratitude in our hearts is authentic. The grace we experience is real. This is Harvest.

    To Him be glory in the church, through Jesus Christ, now and forever more.Ephesians 3:21



    Our Church

    We are one church on seven campuses with one purpose: bring glory to God. And our story is still being written, as He continues to change lives by His Spirit through our ministries and people.

    News and events of all campuses are displayed on our homepage and on ministry pages. To filter these on all pages to a specific campus, click the gold "Choose a Campus" button at the top of any page and select that location.

    When you arrive for a worship service, you’ll find friendly people who aim to make your first visit an encouraging one. Our parking ambassadors will direct you, then our greeters will guide you and answer any questions that you have. If you have children from birth through fifth grade, you may check them in at our secure Children’s Ministry area.

    What to wear? The Lord focuses on the heart more than on the outward appearance, and so do we. You'll find a wide variety in dress among our congregations—from casual jeans and shorts, to more formal. We simply aim to dress so as not to draw attention to ourselves, but keep the focus on Jesus Christ alone.


    Our Services

    We seek to lead people further into a life-altering relationship with the living God—and our worship services reflect that. The authority of God's Word is preached without apology and His Son is exalted with gratitude and adoration.

    As you enter the worship center on any campus, our ushers will welcome you with a bulletin for you, and if helpful, are glad to direct you to your seat.

    We encourage early arrival as services always begin on time, and last approximately 1.5 hours. Our times of worship begin with music (mostly original and contemporary songs, with occasional hymns and new arrangements) and prayer, then we open God's Word together with expository, verse-by-verse preaching.

    Senior Pastor James MacDonald preaches live at the Rolling Meadows and Elgin campuses, alternating between them. Weekend services on all other campuses include live worship and the weekend message delivered through simulcast.

    When Pastor James is not preaching, our pulpit is filled by our Campus Pastors or occasionally guest preachers. Sermons are captured on audio and video and available at our Resource Center at the Rolling Meadows Campus and at the Walk in the Word counter on all of our other campuses before and after our weekend services.

    Don't miss the Guest Reception that immediately follows each service. There you’ll meet our staff and leaders who are glad to answer any questions you may have and provide you with resources.


    Our Families

    Harvest Kids for boys and girls from birth through fifth grade is provided during weekend services on all campuses.

    Student Ministries serve junior high through high school.
    Meeting weekly, students gather for large group teaching (and fun!), then break into same-gender Small Groups each week. Students are encouraged to support one another and to take part in serving our body, in summer and winter camps at Camp Harvest, and in outreach opportunities throughout the year.

    Our Adult Ministries are extensive—from 20s to Single Adults to Seniors', and nearly every demographic in between. Ministries meet on various campuses with opportunities to engage in worship, serving, retreats, short-term missions, and community outreach.
