Our purpose is to intentionally build relationships and share the revolutionary love of Christ with women involved in the adult nightclub industry. Our goal is to awaken hope and empower change as we minister to these women and connect them to community and spiritual resources. One Friday per month from 7-11pm, a group gathers at The Heights to reach these women. Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
Care Team – assist with hospitality opportunities for the ministry including baby showers, grocery assistance, meal coordination, cards (birthday, get well, sympathy). This team will also assist in bag stuffing one night per month, prior to the event.
Prayer Team – will intercede for not only the monthly outreaches, but for the ministry as a whole. They are responsible for intersession for the club team, security team, clubs, and staff, before and during outreach. They are committed to praying for the dancers, staff, owners, and the ministry on a weekly basis.
Security Team – responsible for transportation of the Club Team to and from the clubs. These men will assist with loading and unloading of gifts from vehicles, will be expected to build relationships with club security, bouncers, and managers, and assure that the Club Team enters and leaves the clubs safely.
Club Team – responsible for meeting and engaging with dancers both during outreach and outside of outreach nights. This team is committed to serving for a minimum of one year with monthly outreach participation, and assisting the dancers with various needs, including finding appropriate resources.
The prayer shawl team is made up of a committed group of women who knit “shawls” for those who are undergoing various illnesses and life struggles. This ministry began in 2005 and over the years, these knitters have given over 9,000 prayer shawls to people in need; including baby blankets, blankets for children, shawls for women, and lap throws for men.
We meet together 4 times per year; 2 luncheons and 2 desserts, with knitting or crocheting each time
There is always a need for another knitter on the team. All knitting or crocheting is done at home, on your own time schedule
Texas Baptist Men
The mission of the Texas Baptist Men is to assist Texas Baptist churches as they lead men into a relationship with Jesus Christ that will thrust them and their families into a lifestyle of missions and ministry that fulfills the Great Commission. Both men and women serve in over 17 ministries that TBM offers. There are opportunities to serve locally, nationally, and internationally – for both skilled and unskilled volunteers.
Outdoor Ministry – provides an opportunity for Christian men and women to network together for fellowship and to share the message of Christ with individuals that do not have a personal relationship with Him.
This ministry is made up of a group of faithful Heights women who create quilts for those in need. The ministry started in 2013, making and giving away almost 1,000 quilts. We meet on Thursdays to work together in the creation of the quilts. We complete over 100 quilts each year, and in October or November, we hand-deliver them all to local shelters.
Quilters – quilt creators are always welcome! Quilt “kits” can be provided to complete at home if the Thursday meetings do not fit within your schedule.
Donations - donate old sheets, pillowcases, draperies, table cloths, blankets, or bedspreads.
Prayers - for the quilters as well as the families that receive the quilts; that they will feel God’s love during their time of sadness or pain.
