 Heit's Point Notes for Bulletins #55 by Gary Barkhaus 

LCMS Confirmations Groups – Heit’s Point Lutheran Ministries offers the following Confirmation retreats in November 2014.  Retreats begin Friday with registration 7-8PM and conclude on Sunday by 10AM.  

Baptism – This retreat is led by Rev. Green, King of Kings, Kansas City on November 7-9.  You will increasingly see how your baptism has daily value in your life.  

Lord’s Prayer – This retreat is led by Rev. Hagerman, Trinity, Springfield on November 14-16.  Take the Lord’s Prayer and internalize it, from your lips, into your hearts, and out into your life.  

Ten Commandments – This retreat is led by Rev. Krueger, Faith, Branson on November 21-23.  A whole lot of fun?  The Ten Commandments and the Law of God?  How can that be?  But The Ten Commandments aren’t just about boring and restrictive rules.  They are all about love for God and love for our neighbor.  They don’t just tell us how to show our love to God and others.  They also drive us to seek God’s love for us in Christ.  Come to learn what love is really about!

This is a wonderful time for a confirmation group to experience the beauty God has created.  Heit’s Point is a special place where ministry happens everyday with the passing of seasons; in the abundance of wildlife and God given beauty.  Take some time and enjoy what we have to offer:  “Strengthening your Connection with the Vine”

From the Board – The Board continues to work on ways to make Heit’s Point financially sound.  Even though the 2013 sale of some property would seem to have put us in a more positive financial position, we still need your help.  Because of the economy, some reservation/event cancellations and lower summer camp attendance, we need your continued financial support and prayers to achieve long-range stability.  Your support can come through participating in the Year End Appeal, by the Simple Giving program endorsed by Thrivent Financial Bank, by designating your Thrivent Choice Dollars to Heit’s Point, by planning an Action Team Project for Heit’s Point and by coming and using the facilities.  Your choice is a huge blessing as we partner together in our Ministry.  

Remember, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men . . .Colossians 3:23

 Be a Volunteer! 

The Lord provided each of us with talents that can be put to use in service to the Lord by serving others.  There are several ways you can choice to perform volunteer service at Heit's Point.    They include...

  • individual
  • part of a group from a congregation, organization, or service group
  • Work/Camper program.  Several individuals (single and husband and wife teams) come to Heit's Point for extended periods during the year, camp in our camp grounds, and perform volunteer work.  Most of these volunteers come during the sumer months, but this type service could be performed at other times during the year.  Camping services and meals are provided free.

Regardless of which category you might choose, your time and work will be greatly appreciated and respected.  We only ask that you coordinate your desires for service with us well in advance of when you want to come.   By contacting us early helps us better align your wishes and schedule with the needs of Heit's Point.
