Welcome to Heights Christian Church
What's Happening at HCC...
100 Mile Potluck Coming in September
On Sunday, Sept. 14, we will be hosting a “100 Mile Potluck” to focus on the importance and benefit of local foods and supporting local growers and producers. For the 100 Mile Potluck, we are asking everyone to bring a dish or food item that has at least one ingredient that was produced or grown within 100 miles of Shaker Heights. We will share recipes, local food resources, educational information, fun and fellowship! We also hope to have a related speaker on the topic as part of the event.
First Green Chalice Congregation in Ohio!
On March 19th, 2013 Heights Christian Church became the first Disciples of Christ congregation in Ohio to meet the criteria to be named as a Green Chalice Congregation. HCC's Creation Care team has instituted several environmentally freindly practices in our church. At the January board meeting the Trustees voted to accept the Disciples Green Chalice Averna Covenant. New "Green" changes and adopting the Alverna Covenant are all a part of making the official commitment to being a Green Chalice Congregation. More information about Green Chalice is available here.
Prayer for the Week
Lord God, may we be grateful for our lot, and compassionate toward all those who are suffering every kind of distress at this difficult time. May we hold back nothing, and hasten to be ministers of prayer and mercy, like the disciples of Him who went about doing good in times of need. Amen

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.
