9:30 AM Sunday Morning Worship
Welcome back to one of our former pastors, Rev. Dale Slings. Dale and his wife Gloria were at Heritage from 1987-1999. We are grateful to have them join us as part of our 50th-anniversary celebration. Pastor Slings will open God’s word with us from I Samuel 17:312-52 and Hebrews 11:5-10 with the theme, “Jesus Our Champion”.
5:00 PM Evening Worship
We gather to lift up our hearts to God in worship and prayer in remembrance of the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. PrayerCast videos and testimonies will prompt our prayers for God’s people around the globe, especially where it is the most dangerous to be a follower of Christ and where some of our missionary partners are serving.
Sneak Peek – Thanksgiving Day Worship
Thanksgiving Day Worship will be at 9:30 AM. Come early for breakfast served by our high school students and fellowship with our church family. Our Thanksgiving Day Worship will include time for your Ebenezer Stone testimonies of God’s faithfulness during this past year. You can also submit a video of your testimony of God’s faithfulness and send it to Pastor Bob by Sunday, November 21 to be included in our Thanksgiving Day Worship Celebration. (firstname.lastname@example.org or 616.682.7685). Assistance with recording a video is available as well.
Our time of worship will conclude with a Celebration of the Lord’s Supper.
(Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.” I Samuel 7:12)
Thank You for your Gifts, Tithes, and Offerings
Thank you for your generosity to Christ’s Church. We encourage you to prioritize your local church in your giving because the local church is the bride of Christ, and Jesus is the hope of the world. We excel in the grace of giving when we honor God with our time, our treasures, and our talents.

Pastor Bob Huisman
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
And over all these virtues put on love,
which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:12-14
