Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

This Week:
Sunday Morning Worship, October 20, 9:30 AM

Miles, Levi, Ledger, and Waverly will all receive the sacrament of baptism this Sunday morning.  We celebrate God’s covenantal promises with their families and our Heritage family.  Part 2 of our “Seeking God’s Will” series will continue with a look at the Prerequisites to Discerning God’s Will from Romans 12:1-2.  Jordi Helmholdt will offer music ministry.

11:00-11:45 AM – Sunday Morning Conversation with Matt Spoelstra.  A 2 part Class on Biblical Interpretation. We are going to study the book of Galatians using an interpretive strategy to help shape and deepen our understanding of the text, spending most of our time diving into the text itself and discussing its various aspects. We will assess what our preunderstanding of the text, its interpretation, and what its core theology means for us as we find a modern application of the book.

Sunday Evening Worship, 5:00 PM

Isaiah 59 reminds us that even though some may say that repentance sounds old fashioned, as long as there is sin, it is never outdated.   We continue our series on Isaiah: The Prince of the Prophets.  We will also introduce a new song to Heritage “Ever Be”.
