As our Renewal Team seeks to discover God’s vision for our next chapter of ministry together, our first goal has been to listen.  Listen to God’s Word; listen to God’s Spirit, listen to God’s people; listen to our community and our history together.

In order to listen together for God’s leading, the Renewal Team hosted a series of three listening events – 2 in May and one in the Fall.

YOU were invited to join the events that were fitting for you. Click on the following links to see the results from these 3 gatherings:

Phase One – Listening to our Founders – Sunday, May 7, 6:30-8:30 PM
Charter members and long-term members (40+ years) are invited to tell the story of God planting and growing Heritage CRC.
Results: Listening to our Founders

Phase Two – Listening to our Leaders – Sunday, May 21, 6:30-8:30
Council members and Ministry Leaders are invited to share their perspective on what has changed at Heritage and in our community.  What values have stayed the same?  What opportunities do we see?
Results: Listening to our Leaders

Phase Three – Listening to our Community – Sunday, November 19, 6:30-8:30
The entire congregation and community are invited to process the learnings and observations from the first two phases as we seek to clarify God’s vision and mission for Heritage for the next 3-5 years.
