Welcome to Heights Christian Church
What's Happening at HCC...
First Green Chalice Congregation in Ohio!
On March 19th 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
Gracious and Heavenly Father, we give you thanks for calling us into your flock as disciples of you Son. We know that with your gifts of joy and wonder comes the call to mission.
Send forth your Spirit among us, the people of your Church, that we may be one and, together with those you have chosen to be shepherds of your flock, become a visible sign of your kingdom on earth. O Lord, protect us, so we may follow Christ you Son more closely.
We ask your help in committing ourselves to the living of our faith.
May we be always grateful for the gift of life and the many blessings we have received, so that we may contribute to a better world.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. 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.
