WHO WE ARE
What makes the New Harvest Christian Fellowship Church special is the wonderful group of people God has brought together. At our church, you will find people of all ages with many different backgrounds, personalities, and levels of spiritual growth, but united together in Jesus Christ. We strive to maintain an environment where all feel welcome and challenged to reach new heights in their relationship with God.
We strive to bring glory to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit while we follow the Bible’s direction to worship Jesus Christ as Lord. We seek to teach, disciple and encourage each other to become more like Jesus as we teach this world all that God commands.
So, whether you are passing through Pearland, Texas or are looking for a church to call home in the Pearland area, please come and visit us. If you have any questions about our church, the Bible, or Christianity, please feel free to contact us. We will be more than happy to help you in any way that we can.

From the Pastor’s Desk:
Thanksgiving is a national holiday in the United States, celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Thanksgiving has been celebrated nationally on and off since 1789, with a proclamation by George Washington after a request by Congress.Thanksgiving became a federal holiday in 1863, during the Civil War, when Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens,”
The event that we commonly call the “First Thanksgiving” was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. This feast lasted three days, and—as accounted by attendee Edward Winslow—it was attended by 90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims.
On October 3, 1789, President George Washington made the following proclamation and created the first Thanksgiving Day designated by the national government of the United States:
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”
Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks, for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation, for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war, for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed, for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions, to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually, to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed, to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord. To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and Us, and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
See you in church! Pastor Keith
