JOIN US THIS SUNDAY for the 2023 LEADERSHIP EVENT after worship

Sunday, January 8 from 10:30am-12pm.

Stay after worship and help us start the new year strong! We will celebrate 2022 and set goals for 2023. Our focus for 2023 is HOPE. We are excited to WORSHIP, GROW and SERVE together and see what God has in store for Heritage in 2023!

This event is for current committee and team members and anyone wanting to be a part of planning for 2023.

Missions Team Fundraiser SCRIP Program SCRIP orders due Jan 8

SCRIP gift cards work at your favorite retailers, restaurants and for your Amazon orders. A $25 gift card costs you $25 and has $25 value. It is easy to participate. The missions team makes a percentage of each scrip gift card purchased.

Pick up a SCRIP order form on the kiosk in Fellowship Hall.

January Missions Projects


During the month of January, we will be hosting “Soup” Sundays

Bring a can of soup for the community food pantry every Sunday in support of our neighbors at the New Hope Food Pantry in Olathe, KS.

Just imagine, if every person in worship donated at least 1 can each week, we could collect and donate over 500 cans for the community food pantry!

What a great way to start off the New Year by helping those in need in our community.
