Who is welcome?
Whether you’re a life-long church goer in search of a new church home or have never been to church in your entire life, you will be welcomed at Heritage with open arms. There are many reasons you may be looking for a church to visit. To name a few:
In any case, we welcome you to join us as we seek out the unparalleled wisdom and unfathomable love of God offered to us in the Bible. Jesus said,
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
We have found this to be true. We invite you to come and find out for yourself.

Social distancing and masks required. Screening, contact tracing, and sanitization procedures followed.
Bring chairs or a blanket for seating. Distancing followed but no masks required.
The morning service is live-streamed in real-time at 11:00 AM Sunday morning. The recording of the service is available by Sunday afternoon. Live worship and recorded services are both accessible from our online worship page.
What should I expect?
Directed by Scripture, blended in style
Heritage Church has what you might call a blended worship style. That is, you will see a mix of traditions and fresh expressions of faith; hear centuries-old hymns played with full modern band accompaniment interwoven with contemporary praise and worship songs, all guided by the principles laid down for our worship in God’s Word. We do not give prominence to tradition for tradition’s sake. Neither do we clamor to modern fads in order to be “relevant”. Rather, the Bible instructs us to honor God’s work in the past by recalling the testimonies and singing the songs of saints gone by (e.g. Deuteronomy 31:22 & 31:30-32:44) as well as by singing new songs to God, praising Him for the work He is doing even now to save sinners (e.g. Psalm 33:3, 40:3, 96:1, 144:9, 149:1, Isaiah 42:10, Revelation 5:9, & 14:3).
There is more to worshiping God than singing songs of praise. He is also worshiped and honored as we draw near to Him in prayer, repentance, examination of the Bible, and through the celebration of the sacraments (Baptism and the Lord’s Supper). Some of the elements of our worship service are liturgical in nature, such as the Call to Worship. But through each element of the service we seek to experience and be reacquainted with the Gospel message by allowing the Bible to shape our hearts and minds.
For those who are unfamiliar with some of the elements of our worship service, we often take time during the service to explain what we are doing and why we are doing it. We do this so that those who come from other backgrounds do not need to feel uncomfortable or excluded. We also do this so that those who are more used to the style and format of our service won’t become so familiar with it that we lose sight of why we do what we do.Download the most recent bulletin
How should I dress?
Two valid approaches
There are two approaches that people often take when it comes to deciding how to dress for church. There are those who believe we should come as we are, since God is more concerned that we approach Him with humility and freedom from worry about impressing others with our appearance (see Psalm 18:27 & 1 Timothy 2:8-10).
Others believe that we are to offer God our very best in all things including attire, not out of a motivation to impress others but out of devotion and desire to glorify God as we come into His holy presence (see Leviticus 20:7 & 1 Corinthians 10:31).
There are merits to both sides. At Heritage there are people who dress casually (jeans and t-shirts) and those who dress formally (suit and tie) and everything in between. It’s a mixed bag of people who seek to honor God without fear or judgement from others. However you decide to dress for church, just know that there is no reason to fear what others will think. That’s not why any of us are there after all. We’ll just be glad to see you.
