Unable to attend an in person experience?
That's okay, there are plenty of ways to stay connected!
We know some of you may not feel comfortable worshipping in person with us yet, so we will continue to have our Sunday online experience at 9am, and 10:30am.
You can find our church online experiences live streamed each week via YouTube, Facebook, and our Church Online platform. The link to our online experiences and anything else you may need to stay connected with us during this time, can be found on our Heights App or website.
Continue partnering with us as we lead people to experience the God who can change their lives! Hundreds of people have started a relationship with Christ in the midst of this pandemic and that would not be possible without your generosity!
We are so grateful for your gift, lives are being changed because of your faithfulness to the Lord through your tithes and offerings!
