July Announcements

Summer Sunday School 9:15-10:10AM in the Ballroom

“A Trip to the Holy Land” – Every Sunday in July, we will have a class taught by Dean and Diana Forbes, two Christians who have toured the Holy Land (just like we will in 2020).  They will be teaching us about the geography of the area, the AMAZING places we will see, what it’s like to travel where Jesus walked, and what travelers can expect.  Dean and Diana are friends of Pastor Mark.

“David’s Ladies” – Beginning Sunday, August 4th, Nancy Giffin, a friend of Heritage, and Jodie Smith will be offering a 4-week study on women who were part of King David’s life and their influence.  We will be studying Michal, Abagail, Bathsheba, and Tamar.  Join us for some interesting discussions.

Free the Captives – This wonderful organization is constantly working to combat and to end human sex trafficking throughout Houston and the world.  This is an uncomfortable topic and one that most people would rather not discuss; however, as Christians we are called to fight against wickedness!  The worst thing we can do is to remain silent.  Because today is Communion Sunday, we have a special “Gold Bag” offering for this organization.  We have also invited their speakers to address us and to discuss how we can join their fight.  Thank you for your support!
