Living in community is very important! In a large church it is easy to slip in unnoticed and never really form the relationships that are necessary for living out God’s plan for us as far as being a part of a real community of believers. At The Heights, we connect best with others through LIFE Groups. It is in these small groups “where friends become family.” Through LIFE Groups we experience individual spiritual growth, strengthening and support from others and a sense of direction and purpose from God. Many of these life groups also work together to serve our community, many of which have a focus area where and/or how they serve.
CarePortal is a technology used to connect platforms that bring the needs of hurting children and families in your community to your attention. Caseworkers uncover the needs and CarePortal makes local churches and community members aware of the specific needs. This gives individuals real-time opportunities to respond and help vulnerable children and families. Requests submitted through CarePortal come from caseworkers at government child welfare agencies and other child-serving organizations approved by CarePortal to vet needs.
Our life groups are considered “Response Teams” for these needs. If you are interested in joining a team, ask your Life Group’s Love804 coordinator for details.

Ministry Opportunities for Truck Drivers
There are approximately 3.5 million truck drivers traveling America’s interstates and highways every day. They keep our country moving by hauling supplies, fuel, food, etc. Often, the job requires truck drivers to be away from their families for days or weeks at a time. With this type of schedule, going to church consistently may be very challenging for these drivers.
We are blessed to have a TFC Global chaplain, Clint Bivins, within our church. TFC Global is a ministry dedicated to the trucking industry since 1951. He and Ryan Goodson have been pouring into the trucking community for the past two years. They have prayed, written letters, posted online discipleship videos, stocked Daily Breads, supplied Highway News magazines, and provided THBC sermons on CD at cooperating truck stops. If you have any questions, please contact the email below:
