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!

4) Phone seeds! 

Proverbs 3:27 (ESV) says, “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.” There are many who are giving 110% these days. Your kind word could mean so much to them! Say a prayer before you call, and simply let them know they are appreciated and being prayed for. It will only take a few minutes, but the effects will be timeless. Here are a few suggestions….God may lead you to others.
