Heritage Family,


This will be where you will find information needed during the next few days as we continue to monitor the impending storm. We will be canceling all Midweek activities at the church house this week. The office will be closed Wednesday through Friday, but we will be checking on our church family and assisting in cleanup as needed.


We will get information to you as it continues to change. We are praying for you. Scripture teaches us:


When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. Isaiah 43:2


Helpful information:


We are asking everyone to please update their contact information at this time so we can be ready to assist you immediately if/when needed. To do so, text INFO to our text line 352-358-7770. You will receive a link. Look it over to make sure everything is correct or edit any changes.
