Connecting through Ministries
It’s important to stay connected to the body of Christ and build strong, healthy relationships with other believers who share the same values. Whether you’re new in your Christian walk or you’ve been on this journey all your life, we want to connect with you! Check out our small-group ministries below and join us.
So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT
If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Ecclesiastes 4:10 NLT
There’s something fresh, relevant and engaging at New Harvest Stockton and you don’t want to miss out -- Come to RELATE!
RELATE stands for:
RELATE home groups are a place where the love of Christ is experienced in a most personal way; through friendships, care and practical expressions of love and kindness. It’s a place where you can learn God’s Word in an intimate, encouraging, interactive, and casual environment. We start each session by catching up on the week. Then, we spend some time looking into God’s Word. Finally, we finish things off with a time of prayer and fellowship.
Fridays at 7:00pm. Come, hang out, fellowship, enjoy some snacks, and of course, God’s Word. Find location details on the calendar. See you there!
Men’s Discipleship Classes
One of the staples within our fellowship is our Men's Discipleship Classes. We join with men from our Northern California churches (Sacramento, Madera, Fresno, Salinas, Hollister, Modesto, Visalia, Hanford, and San Jose). Our goal is to equip the men of God with tools necessary to reach their potential in God's Kingdom, have healthy marriages, be excellent fathers, and in return, become mentors to other men.
Classes rotate between church locations. Please see the calendar for upcoming class details.
Women Under Construction
Our women’s group, Women Under Construction, meets in a comfortable and close-knit setting about once a month. In these sessions, women have a safe place to relate with one another while opening up about life’s challenges and blessings, and meditate on God’s Word through our journey. Monthly blogs are also available to remind us that we are a work in progress, continually being shaped by God.
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ… Philippians 1:6 NKJV

We believe your children are the future and recognize how important it is to mentor and prepare them. Our goal in all youth activities is to introduce your children to Jesus and set Him as their foundation in life. We teach children to love God, love others and love themselves; respect authority; be kind, compassionate and forgiving; live pure and honor God with their lives; how to respond to every day situations; and so much more! To do this, we offer a variety of different ministries based on age.
