Saturday, Dec 1 - Sunday, Dec 9
Sojourn Heights is committed to church planting not only within Houston but also abroad. To that end, we have an ongoing partnership with the Acts 29 Italy organization, Impatto.

Justin McGhin, a pastor in the central Italian city of Budrio, as well as his wife, Carli, and sons, Luca & Ephraim, have dedicated the last several years to making the gospel known in Italy. While Budrio is home, they are originally from the US and are beloved friends of many Sojourners here in Houston.

Excitingly, they will be visiting Houston from December 1st to 9th to rest, gather with friends, and raise support for their work in Budrio! While they are here, we have the opportunity to bless them by providing them with a few needed items:
           - One rear-facing car seat for their 6-month-old, Ephraim.
           - One Pack-N-Play
           - A vehicle to borrow while they are in the area

If you would like to provide them with any of the abovementioned needs for the entirety of their stay, please send an email by clicking the button below.

December 2018
Every June and December, we ask all of our Neighborhood Parishes to find ways to rest, reflect, and recreate together. Our purpose is not to escape community; rather, we see this month of rest as an opportunity to express “church as family” even more fully. Please consider how you might bless your Parish Leaders during the month of December.
Saturday, December 1 | 10am to 11am
The meeting will take place in the Sanctuary at 608 Aurora from 10am to 11am. Childcare will be provided for ages 0-3 years. Please arrive early to check-in your children.

If you have recently taken the Membership Class and intend to covenant with our church family, please sit down with your Parish Leaders to discuss this step in further detail.
1 Corinthians 16:1-24
We are concluding our sermon series through Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. The city of Corinth was a Roman colony in Greece. It was a lively, global city, a center for thought and creativity, comprised of diverse peoples and cultures. Most of the early Christian converts in Corinth were non-Jews, former pagans and polytheists. Thus, Paul’s message to the Church in Corinth was a radical departure from the status quo: Through the counterintuitive victory of the crucified Christ, the world is being swept up into the grand, redemptive movement of the one true God of Israel. And this changes everything!
