Community Groups

A great way to get involved at The Heights Baptist is to connect with a group. Community Groups are designed to give you an opportunity to make new friends and enjoy things that you currently love doing anyway (or have an interest in beginning). We have a wide variety of groups that meet throughout the area and range from sports and exercise to Bible studies, with just about everything in between. Set aside some time and get started by participating in one or more of the groups. And, while you are at it, invite a friend to come along with you. Community groups are not created to replace LIFE Groups, but rather are an additional way that you can grow in your Christian walk by spending some time with new and old friends who share something in common with you.

GENERAL

Connecting Through Prayer
Led by David Ilori and Tim Meade

Is a place to arm yourself with the weapon of prayer. You will learn to pray the word of God, exercise your faith, and stir up the gifts God has placed in you.

Learn how to stand in the gap for our nation, state, community, and church.  More importantly, learn how to pray for victory, healing, deliverance, and salvation for yourself and loved ones.

Motorcycle
Led by Steven Westermann and Sandra Wallace

This group is for anyone with a motorcycle or tricycle that likes to ride with other Christ-minded people.  We will meet at the church several times over the next 6 months as weather permits to ride, sight see, have a meal, or maybe ride in a toy run.  All trips will be day trips only and each rider must supply his/her own motorcycle & fuel.  The group is designed to bring people together to enjoy nature and exchange personal testimonies. No fees are required but you must have a valid driver’s license with a motorcycle designation and have current insurance on your ride.

LOVE804 Builders
Led by Michael and Kathryn Tolliver

LOVE804 Builders provides opportunities to help build wheelchair ramps or do minor home repairs for people in need in the local communities. Repairs range from installing grab bars to repairing stairs, railings and decks.  We partner with Project Homes, a non-profit dedicated to improving lives through home rehabilitation and weatherization. Project Homes provides the funding for the materials, so all you need to do is volunteer! You do not need to know how to do any of this – we’ll teach you! We can also provide smoke detectors if you want to provide these to a community area or street. You can take on a project with your life group or simply volunteer to work with another team from our Church. The money is provided by grants, so there are income limitations, but it’s really very generous.  There is a short (5 minute max) 2 page form that you and the home owner need to fill out – we can do this for you if you prefer. We do the assessment with you and help you with the materials list – or you can do this yourself after you’ve done a project if you prefer. We provide the tools if needed, and of course, all of the materials needed to complete the work. These projects offer opportunities to pray with families, share the gospel, to be present and listen, and to show God’s love through your caring and loving the people you are serving. It is extremely rewarding

They provide a remembrance for occasions of joy and celebration, for grieving, and for comfort. The items they create are gifts that open doors to share the love of Christ. They reach out to the neighbors in their hometown, children in their state capital, strangers in their hemisphere and even the other side of the planet. God is so good to have given them these gifts and talents. Others are blessed because they do not squander their gifts but instead faithfully use them to spread The Gospel.  Meets Tuesdays 10am
