ZOOM All Church Conference on Sunday, September 27th at 1pm
Our Heritage Leadership (Church Council members and Nominations and Leadership Development members) have been in conversation about changing to the Simple Board model of governance. We invited a Great Plains Conference staff member, Rev. Nicole Conard, to make a presentation in January to our Nominations Committee and Church Council.
We have continued to have refining conversations about it since and are ready to proceed with the next step. This board model will allow Heritage to become more focused on our missional goals and fulfill our vision to see transformed lives reflecting God’s love.
Instructions on how you can attend the zoom meeting will be coming soon. We will have volunteers available to assist anyone who wants to attend this meeting and is unfamiliar with how Zoom meetings work.
Please reach out to any member of the Nominations committee, Church Council or Pastor Maria if you have any questions about this new model of leadership. We are open to questions and discussions before the model is presented for a vote on September 27th.
CALLING ALL PARENTS
Can we help? Let us know if you would be interested in bringing your child/dren to a LEARNING POD (a safe space where your child can do their school work while being monitored) at HUMC during the school week. We would not be providing educational support. We are taking a pulse of the current need for kids K-12 in our congregation. Please respond ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details to follow based on response.
Heritage UMC Prayer Wall
Stop by Heritage United Methodist Church and add a prayer or lift up a joy or concern on the PRAYER WALL. Colorful ribbons are available in baggies, clipped to the chain link fence around the preschool playground. Bring a sharpie pen from home and write something you want to lift up in prayer to God. Simply write your message on the ribbon and tie it to the fence. When finished, please leave the empty baggie clipped to the fence for disposal.
We know God knows what is in our hearts and our prayers but this is a simple visual way to share our prayers with others and pray for each other’s prayers too as the Prayer Wall is open to everyone. Let’s show our community spirit by building a colorful prayer wall.
