What to Expect
Worship at Heartland is an experience of warmth and community. As a first-timer, you will find the sanctuary bustling with activity as those gathered are greeting each other and sharing conversation. There is a good chance you will be welcomed by more than one family as you find your way to an empty pew. Attire of those gathered ranges from Sunday best to jeans and sneakers. There is no right or wrong way to dress for worship with us!
Our service is of traditional format, with the addition of jazz music. We follow the theology and liturgy of the PCUSA and sing traditional hymns together. You will find yourself moved and lifted up by the way our band is able to capture God’s spirit through music! A bulletin will be given to each adult upon entry of our sanctuary. This bulletin will outline the order of worship for that day and allows everyone to easily follow along and participate in the service.
At Heartland, we celebrate the Sacrament of Communion on the first Sunday of each month. All who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior are welcome to take communion; no baptism or prior ceremony required. (This includes children of any age.)
Children are invited to worship with us and are always welcome. A child’s voice in worship is a blessing for all to hear! As a parent, if you would like a more tranquil time for your own worship, childcare if available off the main hallway.
