NHBC Stepping Out is National Heights on mission in our community. You can participate as an individual, couple, family, or group, and participate in as many ministries as you would like. Ephesians 2:10 tells us ‘we are created to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do’! Our prayer is that when NHBC members are placed in positions of service throughout the community, people will see the face of Jesus, and God will be glorified. Join in –there’s something for everyone! Our community will be blessed, and you will as well, as we put into the action the love we talk about. What a joy to be able to participate together!
Opportunities to Serve:
1) Many organizations around Springfield help those in need, and we can love like Jesus by joining in. Below are links to wish lists for Ronald McDonald House, Newborns in Need and Harmony House, just to name a few:

2) Especially at this season of giving, our hearts turn toward ways we can share the gift of time. Here are links to two organizations who desperately need YOU.
3) On December 16 between 8:45 and 9:00 a.m., arrive at the Victory Mission Donation Center (700 W. Chase Street). You will then have the opportunity to deliver Christmas baskets to those who have signed up and been approved. As you meet each family, you have the opportunity to show the face of Jesus. You can speak with them about specific prayer requests they have, and you never know how God can use you in their lives!
4) Our on-site Blessing Box will be up and going very soon. Please pray for ways God will meet both physical and spiritual needs of those in the community right around our church through this ministry.
