15th Sunday After Pentecost Announcements


Immediately following our worship service on World Communion Sunday (October 2nd), we will gather to hear about a new program in our church.  The Prayer Partner Program will pair up members of our church to support and to pray with and for one another.  THIS PROGRAM IS COMPLETELY OPTIONAL; only those interested need to attend.  (Pastor Mark has had a prayer partner for a handful of years at HPC, and it has helped them both in difficult times.)    Here are some things to know:

  • Pastor Mark will pair up all volunteers
  • How you pray together is your option: via text, on the phone, via Zoom, in person, etc.
  • How often you pray is also your option: daily, weekly, one in a while, whenever urgently needed, etc.
  • A separate Zoom meeting will be held on Monday night, October 3rd at 7:00 PM for those who cannot attend in person.

We hope that anyone who wishes to participate will join us on Sunday, October 2nd or Monday, October 3rd for an informational meeting.

Now that school is in full swing, it is time to begin seeking our next class of Young Music Ministers.  This wonderful program has been at Heritage PC since 2014.  In that time, we have welcomed high school and college voice and choir students who wish to share their gift of voice and to grow in their skills.  If you know of any young person who might be interested, please put them in touch with our Music Director, Nancy Kissinger, for more information and a try-out.

We hope to hire at least four YMM’s for this school year.  Help us find them!

It’s that time of the year again: our Nominating Committee began its work on August 1st, with Elder Katie McMillen serving as this year’s chair.  Each year the outgoing church officers and a few congregation members work together to find church members to serve as Session elders, Deacons, and to serve on next year’s Nominating Committee.  This is important work; all presbyterian churches are run by the local Sessions.  

Each congregation elects its own church officers.  If asked to serve, please prayerfully consider the request.  We need a new Worship elder, a new Christian Education elder, and one Deacon.

And keep praying for our Nominating Committee!
