About Book Clubs

Join us for our 2023 Summer Book Clubs! The purpose of these Book Clubs is twofold: to encourage you in your spiritual growth by introducing you to theologically rich books and to deepen your relationships in our church by connecting you to other women interested in discussing those books in community.

We are offering four book clubs in the categories of theology, relationships, practical Christian living, and Christian biography. Be sure to pay close attention to the details of location and time before signing up as each of these clubs will meet at different times and places. Due to space constraints each book club will be capped depending on location, so sign up early!


What It Is, How to Train It, and Loving Those Who Differ

Overview: Christian, meet your conscience.

What do you do when you disagree with other Christians? How do you determine which convictions are negotiable and which are not? How do you get along with people who have different personal standards?

All of these questions have to do with the conscience. Yet there is hardly a more neglected topic among Christians. In this much-needed book, a New Testament scholar and a cross-cultural missionary explore all thirty passages in the New Testament that deal with the conscience, showing how your conscience impacts virtually every aspect of life, ministry, and missions. As you come to see your conscience as a gift from God and learn how to calibrate it under the lordship of Jesus Christ, you will not only experience the freedom of a clear conscience but also discover how to lovingly interact with those who hold different convictions.

Authors: Andrew David Naselli (PhD, Bob Jones University; PhD, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is professor of systematic theology and New Testament at Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minneapolis and one of the pastors of the North Church in Mounds View, Minnesota.

Real Change for Real Sinners

Overview: How do Christians grow? Few question the call of the Bible to grow in godliness, but the answer to exactly how this happens is often elusive.

In this book, Dane Ortlund points believers to Christ, making the case that sanctification does not happen by doing more or becoming better, but by going deeper into the wondrous gospel truths that washed over them when they were first united to him.

Drawing on wisdom from figures throughout church history, Ortlund encourages readers to fix their gaze on Jesus in the battle against sin, casting themselves upon his grace and living out their invincible identity in Christ.

Author: Dane C. Ortlund (PhD, Wheaton College) serves as senior pastor of Naperville Presbyterian Church in Naperville, Illinois.

Extraordinary Hospitality

for Ordinary People

Overview: Generous hospitality is a significant way in which God works through our lives to bring life to others, yet many of us feel ill-equipped and overwhelmed at the prospect, especially if we don’t have big houses and we are not wonderful cooks!

Carolyn Lacey encourages us to focus on the goal of hospitality, which is to reflect God’s welcoming heart, and shows us how we can all do that, regardless of our bank balance or living situation.

She explores seven ways in which we can reflect God’s character in the way we welcome others into our homes and into our lives, and so point people ultimately to Christ.

This practical and realistic book explores how to make generous hospitality part of everyday life without becoming exhausted and overburdened.

Author: Carolyn Lacey is a writer, speaker and pastor’s wife. She serves alongside her husband, Richard, in Worcester, UK, where she works part-time for her church as a women’s worker. She teaches the Bible regularly at women’s events and conferences, and is a mum to two grown-up children.

Time and Dates: Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m., May 30-July 18, except July 4

Book: Available online at Amazon, Christian Book, Westminster Bookstore, and others. This is also the book that was given to those who attended the HBC Women’s Conference earlier this year.

Overview: The True Story of One Woman’s Triumph of Faith

Newlywed American missionary Darlene Deibler Rose survived four years in a notorious Japanese prison camp set deep in the jungles of New Guinea.

Good Friday & Easter

Good Friday & Easter

Easter weekend converges with a high point in our series through Hebrews, that memorable exhortation: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God” (Heb. 12:1, 2). Join us for Easter weekend for our two-part series, Looking to Jesus, as we look to Jesus on the cross (Good Friday, 7:30 p.m.) and on his throne (Easter Sunday, 9:30 a.m.). 

Good Friday 

  • We will gather at 7:30 p.m. on April 7 in the Fellowship Hall. Childcare is provided for nursery and preschool age children. We will sing, read Scripture, and Pastor Jason Read will preach, followed by communion.

Easter Sunday

  • We will gather at 9:30 a.m. on April 9 in the Auditorium. Again, we will sing praises to our risen King and Pastor Trent will preach.

Two reminders for Heritage members: First, pick up a stack of invitation cards. We’ve printed an abundance of wallet-sized invitations cards. Use these to invite your neighbors and others around town. Second, help ensure a seat for our guests. Come early and consider taking a seat up front in the auditorium to help us take advantage of our available seating.




This summer our 1st-5th graders will be studying about who God is and what He is like at our Mystery Island VBS, June 19-23, 9:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. We will be transported to a beautiful paradise where we will trek down the truth about the one true God.

Registration is open through June 4 for our rising 1st-5th graders. You are encouraged to invite your neighbors’ children who need to hear more about Jesus as well! Registration is required to attend, and the cost is $20/child. All families participating in Mystery Island are welcome to join our Closing Assembly and Hot Dog Lunch on Friday, June 23, starting at 11:30 a.m.

If you have any questions, please email Kevin Delp.

Evening Prayer & Church Supper

Evening Prayer & Church Supper

On Sunday, March 12, we will gather at 4:30 p.m. for our monthly Evening Prayer. Following our prayer time, we will have a catered church supper. Come one or come all but come to pray. Chad Asire, one of our Shepherding Group Leaders, will preach a ten-minute sermon “Yahweh Who Sanctifies” in our evening teaching series, Walking in His Name. As Jesus did with His disciples at the end of the night on the eve of His arrest, we’ll close with a hymn. But the rest of the time we’ll be praying together for God to work in our lives, in the life of our church, and through our church for His name. Childcare will be available for children up through preschoolers. 

In order to make adequate preparations, we need a count for the meal. We must have an accurate count for the food no later than 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, March 8, so please sign up below and make your plans to join us! 

2023 Women’s Conference: February 24-25

2023 Women’s Conference: February 24-25

Welcome One Another

HBC Ladies – you are invited to enjoy worship and fellowship together as we welcome our guest speaker, Abi Byrd, for our 2023 Women’s Conference. Come learn what it means to “welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God” (Romans 15:7).

When you think of hospitality, perhaps beautiful tablescapes, gourmet meals, and Instagram-worthy guest rooms come to mind. Or maybe you think of awkward small-talk, financial sacrifice, and panic cleaning. But what if God had something deeper and more significant in mind when he commanded his people to love and welcome other people into their lives?

Our world is experiencing what researchers are calling an “epidemic of loneliness.” Being on this side of a global pandemic in which we all experienced isolation more than usual, we have a better understanding of the basic human need to be in meaningful relationship with others. Who among us doesn’t want to belong and be welcomed into the lives of others? Who among us doesn’t want to be truly known and truly loved?

The good news for believers is that through Christ we have been welcomed like this! We who “were once far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ” (Eph.2:13). We who were strangers and slaves have been made sons and heirs (Gal.4)! Through Christ we have been shown the greatest act of hospitality, and this is what fuels and motivates our hospitality toward others.

Biblical hospitality is not an end in itself. It is a means toward fulfilling the great commission that we have received to share the good news of the gospel with our neighbors. It is a way for us to welcome other believers into our lives for the purpose of discipleship and deeper friendship. And it is a way to demonstrate love and care to “the least of these” among us.

Come, join us as we hear from God’s Word the importance of this basic, yet deeply meaningful practice. We have been welcomed so in return we welcome others!

Abi Byrd serves on staff as a Ministry Associate at McLean Bible Church, Loudoun Campus, in Leesburg, Virginia. She works in women’s ministry, discipleship, and coaching for Church Groups. She is an instructor for the Charles Simeon Trust women’s workshops, training women to study and teach the Bible. Abi has a BEd Honors degree in music and education from Cambridge University. She has been a teacher in elementary school and served with the children’s ministry on staff at Capitol Hill Baptist Church. She and her family have also served as missionaries in the UK and Kosovo with Radstock Ministries.
