Whatever you'd like! Jeans or suits, slacks or overalls, T-shirts or button-downs: all are welcome. We believe Jesus when he said, "Don't worry about what you will wear." We're not worried. We don't want you to be either.
Worship has a feel of warmth and approachability. We want someone who has never stepped into a church to be able to follow along. That's why we project onto a screen all the songs, prayers, and sermon PowerPoint slides. That said, our worship is not casual; after all, we worship the living God! With God's help, we seek to strike a balance between proper reverence and approachability. To learn more about a typical Sunday service visit our worship page.
Yes! We strive to worship God in a way that is true to who we are. Since we are truly an intergenerational community, this means worshiping in a way that taps into the hearts, minds, and spirits of all ages of people. Therefore, some elements of our worship are rooted in the Christian tradition: "passing the peace," singing the "Doxology," partaking of Communion weekly, and signing a hymn or two. Other elements of our worship give witness to the newness of God's work among us: contemporary statements of faith, relevant sermons, and newer songs played with a piano, a guitar, and a box drum.
No. The offering is for those who call Heartland 'home'. As our guest, we simply hope that the worship service has been a gift to you.
Absolutely not. We especially welcome the curious, the doubting, the skeptical, and the broken. After all, we've all been there. And Jesus welcomed us.
