Today we turn the calendar page from August to September. Though the weather here in Cambridge still feels like summer, we are thinking “fall” at Heritage. It’s time for a new school year to begin.
Our campus has been upgraded over the summer: a new patio in front of the Heritage Community Centre and a new look for our chapel.
Now we are ready for the wave of new students who will arrive on Labour Day. They will be moving into upgraded residence halls; each apartment has a new stove and refrigerator. I’m grateful for the generous giving from supporters of the school that made all these improvements possible!
While I’m delighted with the improvements to our campus, I’m most excited about the changes God will be working in the lives of the students who are coming to Heritage this fall. Students will be impacted by studying God’s Word in their courses. They will be shaped by our times of worship in chapel services. They will be supported by our staff and faculty. They will be stretched by ministry opportunities as they serve in local churches and our local community (I’ll write more about this in a future post!).
As I travel throughout Ontario I hear good reports of the way Heritage grads are serving Christ faithfully and fruitfully. It’s our deep desire and joy to see more men and women trained to serve Christ, His Church and His mission in the world.
On Fridays, I hope to post specific prayer requests for the school and for Linda and myself. I’ll also detail some answers to prayer. I’d ask you to check this site on Fridays and join us in asking God to do a great work in and through Heritage.
