Men’s Cookout

Men’s Cookout

Brothers, join men of all ages for a cookout on Saturday, June 19. We’ll gather at 1925 Fairview Road, Fountain Inn, SC, at the property of a friend of Heritage. Come as early as 2:00 for lawn games, hiking, fishing, and other activities. Food will be served around 4:30. After hearing some brief comments from God’s Word, we conclude the evening with more games and activities. We want this time to be a relaxed time of fellowship with other men in our church. You’re welcome to come when you can and leave when you need to, but we’ll wrap up at 7:00 p.m. 

Sign up below so that food can be prepared. Please join us!

Women’s Ministries Summer Fellowship

Women’s Ministries Summer Fellowship

Ladies, we invite you to join us Tuesday evening, June 29, for our Women’s Ministries Summer Fellowship. We will meet in the Fellowship Hall at 7:00 p.m. to hear from Rachel H., one of our oversees partners. There are many ways that we as a church seek to support and encourage those who go out from us to share the Good News in other countries, and this is one more opportunity for you to do just that! Come listen to what God is doing through Rachel and her family in their country and get a better idea of how you can partner with them in their work. After we hear from Rachel, we will enjoy relaxed fellowship around dessert and coffee. Bring your friends and your daughters and come hear how God is working to build his kingdom!

Praise in the Park

Praise in the Park

Due to inclement weather two years ago and Covid last year, it’s been some time since we’ve enjoyed Praise in the Park. We are eager to resume this tradition on Sunday evening, May 23. We’ll meet outdoors at Greer City Park in their amphitheater at 4:30 p.m. for a time of singing and hearing the Word. Then we’ll spread out across the park for a church picnic. Because of lingering Covid concerns, we will not be providing food this year; however, we will provide bottled water and canned drinks. We ask that you BYOP—bring your own picnic. Invite a friend from the community, bring your lawn chairs and blankets, pack a picnic, and join us for Praise in the Park.

Women’s Ministries Spring Fellowship

Women’s Ministries Spring Fellowship

All ladies and young ladies are invited to join us April 29 at 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall for our Women’s Ministries Spring Fellowship. We will spend a good portion of the evening getting to know one of our long-time members, Donna Lawrence. Donna will share her story of grace and give us an inside glimpse into what God has done in her life and how He continues to grow her. We will also get to hear how God has used some of the things she has learned and experienced at Heritage to write and publish a Christian fiction book, Shoshana’s Refuge. After we hear from Donna, we will enjoy a relaxed time of food and fellowship. Bring a friend, and come ready to make new friends or catch up with old ones! We hope to see you there!

Our Plans for Singing on Sunday, April 11

Our Plans for Singing on Sunday, April 11

For some time now we have wanted to host a weekend workshop specifically for our Sunday musicians. We are well served by talented and church-loving musicians each Lord’s Day and this is a way of investing in them spiritually and in the practical work of leading congregational singing as a team. That’s what we’re doing the second week of April with the help of our guest song-leader, Drew Hodge, Worship Pastor at Desert Springs Church in Albuquerque, NM.

Redemption Songs in the Morning,
Hymns in the Afternoon

On Sunday morning, April 11, we will hear the Word preached from the oldest song in the Bible, the Song of Moses, from Exodus 15. This will be the first installment in a periodic series we’ll call, Redemption Songs, in which we work through the songs embedded in the Bible’s story of redemption. That morning we will be led by Drew and our musicians.

That afternoon, at 4:30 PM we will host our first Hymn Sing. Drew and our musicians will lead us in singing our faith for an hour or so. Bring the family and plan to sing out. You might hear some new arrangements and sounds.

Meet Drew Hodge

Drew Hodge is a dear friend of mine (Trent) as we served together for seven years and met weekly with our families for our Community Group during that time. I’m eager for you all to meet him and for Drew to hear you sing. In view of this visit, I asked Drew if he’d write up a little bio of himself. Here’s his story:

I’m a husband to Crissie for 15 years, father to five kids (Arabella 12, Priest 10, Kanon 9, Halliday 7, Arrow 4), and Worship Pastor at Desert Springs Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for the last eleven years.

Music and church always went together for me. My dad was a Southern Baptist Pastor for most of my life and my mother a talented musician. Growing up homeschooled by a musical mother meant that music was an expected discipline. I learned to sing and play piano as sure as read and write. By the age of 15 the Lord had placed in me a deep desire to serve the church in music and I haven’t ever pursued anything else.

Through high-school and college (Where I studied Vocal Performance) I labored to grow as a musician in order to serve the local church. Music and the church are both wonderful gifts, but one serves the other. Music is not a end in and of itself, but a means to the glorious end of God’s worship in the church.

Writing songs for the church has helped me to appreciate the church’s voice and learn the church’s heart. Letting the word of Christ dwell in us richly through singing together, as a church, has been one of my life’s greatest joys. By His grace it will continue to be for as long as He allows.

Membership Matters

Membership Matters

Membership Matters is an orientation class that is a prerequisite for anyone desiring to become a member of the Heritage Bible Church family. The class will be held during the Elective hour, June 6 – August 1. We believe that local church membership is vital for the growth of every follower of Jesus, and various elders will walk through the biblical foundation for membership, our Confession of Faith and Membership Covenant, as well as key aspects of body life at Heritage. If you are considering joining Heritage, please plan to participate in this class. Sign up on the Electives page.
