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.
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.
Neighbors, friends and family are always welcome.
Sharing love in and around the Community!

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.

Green Chalice Project
Is your collection of plastic shopping bags growing and threatening to overwhelm you? Please feel free to donate then to a good cause. This summer at the General Assembly, Disciples Women's Ministries is helping Disciples Youth turn them into crocheted plastic sleeping mats for the homeless. We can help by creating balls of “plarn;” plastic yarn made from plastic bags. HCC’s Creation Care team will be planning opportunities to make plarn and/or teach you how to do so at home. For now, start saving those bags.
