The Harbour was a church plant of the Northeast District of the North Alabama Conference on Easter Sunday of 1999. The purpose of planting a new church in this community was to offer the community an alternative style of worship. With that goal in mind, Rev. Tony Johnson held the first services in his home kitchen. It didn’t take long for the church to outgrow his kitchen and the current building was purchased.
With this alternative worship experience in mind, the services were designed with breakfast served each Sunday, and people sitting at tables. The purpose was to reach people in the community who didn’t want a traditional style of worship as well as those who had not been in church for years.
We at The Harbour have seen many changes as we continue to try and find ways to be better. First, we strive to be better as individuals. Through a closer relationship with Christ, we find our pathway to becoming a better person and partner at The Harbour. The leadership in our church has grown leaps and bounds over the last 5 years, and this momentum has spread among many new leaders. This congregation truly wants to be a resource in our community and reach those that are looking for a church family. Most of all, we strive to reach those that are searching for the Lord and don’t know for sure what they are searching for…yet.
God is doing some great things at The Harbour as we launch our second service. We want to invite you to see for yourself the excitement and love of the people at The Harbour. Join us as we grow our relationship with the Lord and with the people within our communities.
We exist to make disciples for Christ for the transformation of the world by sharing our stories, building relationships and growing in faith.
