Heights Christian's 85th Year

It's has been 85 years since the idea of a Disciple Church being bulit in the Heights area was a gem of an idea.  Our forefathers dreamed big and we now worship, do mission work and education on issues of the day from this beautiful church on a triangle in Shaker Heights.

Our 85th Celebration begins this month and will include special monthly activities ending with our Annual Dinner in June 2015.  Because our theme for our work this year is "Building Community", each mouth we will go out, as a group, into the community to support a project, an entrepreneur, a restaurant, etc. who will welcome our participation and then, by our actions, spread the word to others.

April's event to highlight our theme "Building Community" in celebration of our 85th Anniversary will be, Sunday, April 26, after church we will have a light lunch here and then car pool to Painesville to have a guided tour of the historic Steele Mansion beginning at 2:30 p.m.

It will end with a delightful tea and coffee with "decadent desserts" and conversation in the Gathering Room.  Cost: $20 per person.  Reservations are a must by April 22nd.  Please call the church office at 216.561.4800.

We encourage all to join this celebration.  An 85th Anniversary Support Fund will be available to any family or senior needing assistance in order to participate.

 


 

Lenten Prayer of the Week

Dear Heavenly Father, I lower my head before you and confess that I have too often forgotten that I am your child.  Too often, I carry on my life as if you do not exist, falling far short of being a bold witness to You.  For this, I ask your forgiveness, and I pray that you will give me strength, courage, a clear mind and an open heart when you call upon me to witness to your mighty love.  Remind me always to strive to be who You would have me be, no matter where I am, or what I am doing, or who I am with.  Make me into your lantern, precious Lord, and let your light shine through me so bright that all can see it.  Amen.

In our prayers...

Open our eyes, Lord that we may see you.
Open our ears that we may hear your still, small voice.
And open our hearts that we may feel your presence this day and everyday.  Amen.
