MEN'S BIBLE STUDY
Our fall men’s Bible Study began on Thursday, September 13 at 6:15 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Men are exploring the great deliverances of God for Israel which point to the greatest deliverance of mankind from sin. The format is similar to past studies, beginning with a large group and then splitting into small groups led by men who will guide us through the study. You can still join us in the morning or the evening as we grow together in our love for God and His Word. Email Barb Illsley if you would like to sign up. The book, Exodus: Liberating Love, is available for $5.
LADIES' BIBLE STUDY
This fall we are welcoming all of our women to join in seeing God through the book of 1 Samuel! Tuesdays, at 9:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., we will discover together the True King’s heart for His people as He raises up their first royal leaders. Bible study will run from September 18 – November 6. Email Liz Stratton if you would still like to sign up. The study notebook can be purchased for $6.
WOMEN'S MINISTRIES FALL FELLOWSHIP
As women we have many callings—we wear many hats. Sometimes we enjoy these roles and responsibilities; sometimes we don’t. Sometimes they seem to be in balance; and many times they seem to conflict. We compare our callings to others’, and we fear the judgment of others. Sometimes these callings change, and we struggle with identity and purpose. Join us in the Fellowship Hall on Friday, September 21, at 7:00 p.m. as Michelle Radford leads us in a study of what God’s Word says about callings. We will spend time in small group discussion and prayer, applying God’s Word to our lives, and then leave renewed with a fresh vision for God’s work in the world through your own life. If you’d like to contribute to the food, bring your favorite pie to share!
Numbered offering envelopes for the 2018-19 fiscal year are available for those who use the numbered envelope system. Envelopes are on the tables next to the Welcome Center in the South Lobby. Just a reminder that only contributions received through our numbered offering envelope system or online are posted to church records. If you are not presently a part of the numbered envelope system but would like to be, please contact the church office.
Our next Family Meeting is on Sunday, September 30, at 5:30 p.m. In addition to the review and vote on the budget for the 2018-19 fiscal year, we will welcome new members and have a time of food and fellowship. Each family is asked to bring at least one sweet or savory finger food to share. More details will follow in next week’s Life in the Body email, but make your plans to join us and bring a yummy snack.

You can give your gifts and offerings to Heritage Bible Church online, if you so choose. We want giving at Heritage to be simple, habitual, and cheerful for our entire church family. We will still take an offering during the worship services, we will still have offering envelopes, and the offering boxes will remain in the lobby. But for some time now a number of you have asked for the option of online giving, and we are happy to provide that for you.
Giving online is easy and allows you to set up automatic recurring contributions and view your complete online giving history from anywhere you have access to the Internet. Simply follow these easy steps:

- Click on the Create Profile button, then
