CHILDREN'S MINISTRIES PARENT & VOLUNTEER MEETING

On Sunday, August 20, parents of 1st-5th graders and Journey Group volunteers are invited to The Cave at 11:00 for a meeting with information about our elementary-age children.

FAMILY BOARD GAME NIGHT

Another Family Board Game Night will be held Friday, August 18, in The Cave. Join other families and friends for a fun evening of board games. The festivities begin at 7:00 p.m. You are welcome to bring your own games and enjoy other people’s games. There is no set schedule, so come and have a great time doing life together with other HBC families!

PICTORIAL DIRECTORY UPDATE

Sunday, August 20, during the 11:00 hour, we will take updated or new pictures for our online pictorial directory. If you need to update your picture or if you are a regular attender of Heritage who has never been photographed, this is for you! This directory is a great tool for getting to know one another. As a bonus, a helpful app is available only to those who are pictured in the directory.

FALL ELECTIVES

We are looking forward to beginning our Fall Electives on Sunday, September 3. Additional information and registration will be available later this month.

CHILDREN'S JOURNEY GROUP PROMOTION

Toward the end of each summer we promote children to their new Journey Group based on the school grade they will be entering in the fall. This year Promotion Sunday will be August 27. Children entering 1st-5th grade will be dismissed from the Morning Worship before the sermon and escorted down to The Cave for Children’s Church. They will be divided into their new grade level groups, and parents can pick them up in the Children’s Wing after the 11:00 hour. If you have any questions, please contact Kevin Delp.

AUGUST 27 COMBINED MEN'S AND WOMEN'S MEETINGS

Sunday, August 27, we will have our annual Combined Men’s and Women’s Meetings during the 11:00 hour. Among other things, the hour will include plans for the Men’s and Women’s Ministries for the 2017-18 year such as Bible study opportunities and special events. Mark your calendars for this important hour!

NURSERY MINISTRY

Looking for a place to serve and an opportunity to be a blessing? Our nursery is always in need of  additional volunteers to work on a rotational basis. If you are willing to assist in this ministry, please contact Barb Illsley to volunteer to serve our children or to get more information on the opportunity.

CHILDREN’S WING RESTROOM

For organizational and safety purposes, the Children’s Wing restrooms will be reserved for children only on Sunday mornings.

SUNDAY EVENING SCHEDULE REMINDER

Shepherding Groups meet on the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings, and we have Evening Prayer on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. These are vital opportunities in the life of the church. Don’t miss out on the relationships and encouragement that come through these times.

OFFERING ENVELOPES

Only contributions received through our numbered offering envelope system or online are posted to church records. If you are not presently on the envelope system but would like to be, please contact the church office.

ONLINE GIVING

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:

  1. Click on the Online Giving in the top right corner of this page
  2. Click on the Create Profile button, then
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions to create an online profile and to schedule your recurring contributions.

A Frequently Asked Questions document will answer some of the questions you may have. Thank you for your ongoing financial support of Heritage Bible Church!

All regular attenders of HBC who are permanent residents in the Greenville area are encouraged to be included in the HBC database with accurate information.

You can turn in your form through an offering box or plate next time you attend. We desire to have all regular attenders included in our database.
