What's Happening at HCC...
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.
This month's activity will be during the Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) at the Tower City Cinemas to see "Finding The Gold Within" on Saturday, March 21 @ 4:45 p.m.
Six young men from Akron, Ohio move from an adolescent support program into college and university life. Inspiring, heartbreaking, and unflinchingly honest, this film is not just about the journeys these men must take, but the journeys we all must share to bring about church. Call the church office at 216.561.4800 for more information
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.
Lenten Prayer of the Week
Dear Heavenly Father, I lower my head before you and confess that I have too often forgotten that I am your child. Too often, I carry on my life as if you do not exist, falling far short of being a bold witness to You. For this, I ask your forgiveness, and I pray that you will give me strength, courage, a clear mind and an open heart when you call upon me to witness to your mighty love. Remind me always to strive to be who You would have me be, no matter where I am, or what I am doing, or who I am with. Make me into your lantern, precious Lord, and let your light shine through me so bright that all can see it. Amen.
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.
