Praise in the Park

Sunday, May 22, we will gather at Greer City Park for our annual Praise in the Park! We will begin in the amphitheater at 5:30 p.m. for a time of singing and Scripture. Following the service, we’ll move down the hill near the picnic shelter for a church picnic. Heritage is providing subs, chips, cookies, and drinks at no cost to you this year. In order to help us plan, please let us know if you will eat with us. Sign up by Sunday, May 15.

Invite a friend from the community, bring your lawn chairs and blankets, and join us for Praise in the Park!

About Book Clubs

Join us for our 2022 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 three book clubs in the categories of theology, relationships, and practical Christian living. 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 at 25 members, so sign up early!

None Like Him

10 Ways God is Different From Us (and Why That’s a Good Thing)

Overview: God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible. We’re not, and that’s a good thing!

Our limitations are by design. We were never meant to be God. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone. Calling us to embrace our limits as a means of glorifying God’s limitless power, Jen Wilkin invites us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.

Author: Jen Wilkin is a speaker, author, and Bible teacher from Dallas, Texas. She has organized and led studies for women in home, church, and parachurch contexts. Her passion is to see others become articulate and committed followers of Christ, with a clear understanding of why they believe what they believe, grounded in the Word of God. She is the author of Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds.

Hostesses: Annette Hendsbee and Amina Deang

Location: Hendsbee home, 1200 Carriage Park Circle, Greer, SC 29650

Time and Dates: Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m.; May 31-July 12

Book: Available online at Amazon, Christian Book, Crossway, Westminster Bookstore, and others

Closer Than a Sister

How Union with Christ Helps Friendships to Flourish

Overview: This book explores what the Bible means when it speaks about friendship. Built on our unity with Christ, these are real life, flesh and blood relationships. They are there as a means of grace, bringing with them the opportunity for help, comfort, love—the opportunity to grow and to give of ourselves. Through hardships and joys, these unique, God-ordained friendships are a ‘cord of three stands, not easily broken.’ (Ecclesiastes 4:12).

If you are seeking friendship, longing for deeper friendships, or want to become a better friend yourself, this book and the discussion with sisters in Christ is for you!

Author: Christina Fox is the author of A Heart Set Free and a blogger who chronicles her faith journey. She writes for a number of Christian ministries and publications including Desiring God and The Gospel Coalition. She lives with her husband and two sons in Atlanta, Georgia.

Hostesses: Martha Winstead and Elizabeth Godwin

Location: Winstead home, 209 Kittansett Court, Taylors, SC 29687

Time and Dates: Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.; June 9, 23, July 14, 28

Book: Available online at Amazon, Christian Book, Westminster Bookstore, and others

Love to Eat, Hate to Eat

Breaking the Bondage of Destructive Eating Habits

Overview: Have you ever wondered if God cares about what or how you eat? Are you already convinced that he cares, but you’ve given up fighting this battle? Or you find yourself in an endless cycle of fighting for a while only to give up again? In this book, Elyse Fitzpatrick will help you to identify the destructive eating habits holding you captive, from rejecting God’s good gift of food to idolizing it (and everything in between). She strives to help you break the vicious cycle of emotional eating, surrender your desire for control, and suggests practical ways to move forward*.

Most importantly, she will point you to a God who created you, knows everything about you, loves you, and wants you to be free from your bondage to food—in whatever form that takes!

*This book is not a diet plan. While there is some practical advice offered toward the end of the book, this book (and the book club discussion) is primarily focused on inward transformation rather than outward. Dietary and exercise needs are individual, and we suggest that you seek your own counsel from a trusted doctor or dietitian.

Author: Elyse Fitzpatrick is the head of Women Helping Women Ministries and holds an MA in biblical counseling from Trinity Theological Seminary. She has authored more than two dozen books, including Women Helping Women. She and her husband, Phil, have three grown children and six grandchildren.

Hostesses: Sarah Bradshaw and Carly Mullenix

Location: Mullenix home, 7 Huddersfield Drive, Simpsonville, SC 29681

Time and Dates: Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m., May 31, June 14, 28, July 12, 26

Book: Available online at Amazon, Christian Book, Harvest House Publishers, Lifeway, and others

Women’s Spring Fellowship

Women’s Spring Fellowship

All ladies are invited to our Women’s Spring Fellowship on Monday, April 25, at 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. That evening we will have the privilege of hearing from one of our mission partners, Marla Allston. Marla will be sharing her story of God’s grace in her life, including many of the things she learned while serving Him in Togo, West Africa. In addition to hearing from Marla, some information will be shared about our Summer Book Clubs, which is new for our Heritage Women this summer. You won’t want to miss that! We’ll also enjoy a time of relaxed fellowship over dessert and coffee. This is open to ladies of all ages so bring your friends and your daughters, and come enjoy an evening with your sisters!

Easter 2022

Easter 2022

We’ve been working through the book of Leviticus on Sunday mornings. On Good Friday and Easter Sunday we will continue with our series, showing how this ancient and at times obscure book makes sense of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Even more importantly, we will see how the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are the way out of death and into abundant life with God.

Good Friday 

  • We will gather at 7:30 p.m. on April 15 in the Fellowship Hall. Childcare is provided for nursery and preschool age children. Pastor Jason Read will preach from Leviticus 10, followed by communion.

Easter Sunday

  • We will gather at 9:30 a.m. on April 17 in the Auditorium. Pastor Trent will preach from Leviticus 11.

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.

Shepherding Groups

Shepherding Groups

Strong relationships with other brothers and sisters are essential to following Jesus. Our God intends that we live life alongside of and with each other as we walk together toward our Savior. Shepherding Groups are the relational hub for our church family and the heartbeat of our life together. In a church our size we can’t know everyone, but we need to know some and be known by them. These small groups are a crucial place for growth in our walk with Jesus. It’s also the primary place where our church leaders watch over us (Elders) and care for us (Deacons). It’s where we bring the Word into each other’s lives and speak of Christ to one another. It’s where we encourage and confront each other. It’s where we pray for each other. It’s where we care for each other.

Participating in a Shepherding Group is something we expect for each of our members, and we welcome others who are learning about our church to sign up as well. If you are not currently part of a Shepherding Group or if you would like to change groups, sign-up for 2022-23 is taking place through March 15. We will organize the groups over the next month, and new groups will begin April 3. Group participants who wish to remain in the same group do not need to complete a registration form.

WHAT ARE SHEPHERDING GROUPS?
Places to Follow Jesus in Relationship with Others
We GROW together as a church family as we spend time together focused on Jesus Christ, so relationships are at the heart of our Shepherding Groups. In a church our size you can’t know everyone, but you need to know someone and be known by them. These small groups, usually made up of 15-20 people, are a crucial place for encouragement and growth in your walk with Christ.

WHEN AND WHERE DO THEY MEET?
Homes around Greenville
Groups meet twice a month in homes, typically on the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings for 1-2 hours.

WHAT HAPPENS?
Speaking the Word, Praying, and Caring
Group members love one another by living out the “one anothers” of the NT. In this setting, we share life together, confess our sins to one another, speak God’s Word into each other’s lives, and pray for each other.

When the group gathers, the discussion focuses on the preached Word from Sunday morning. Through the Spirit’s help we seek to understand and apply the Word which we’ve heard.
