Welcome

First, THANK YOU for your interest in Heart Lake Baptist Church.  We want to give you a quick look at what you can expect as you come to meet us.  On Sunday morning, you will be welcomed by our Greeters and they will be glad to offer you any assistance you need.  Also, you can pick up a Welcome Package at the Welcome Center in the foyer as you enter the church.  This will introduce you to our congregation and highlight different ministries, please pick one up.  A weekly bulletin is available which highlights many opportunities here at Heart Lake and you are most welcome to join in.  Look for the next New Comer's Luncheon and let us introduce ourselves to you.

Our Sunday Worship Service is at 10am with Nursery/Toddler care and Kids Class for children up to Grade 5.  Our Jr.& Sr. High meet upstairs in the youth room during the 10am service, with the exception of the 1st Sunday of the month they join in the Worship Service in the sanctuary. (Note: During the summer there is no Youth class Sunday Mornings)

 

First Time F.A.Q.


 We know that your first time at a church, any church, brings up some questions: 

Here is a quick look at what you can expect and we look forward to meeting you soon.

How do I get there and when do I need to arrive?

 We are located at 10245 Kennedy Rd. N., approximately 1.5 half blocks north of Bovaird Drive on the east side of Kennedy Road.  Try to arrive about 10 minutes before the service time to allow for parking and locating childrens programs.

 

 

What Should I Wear or Bring?  

Dress comfortably.  While some attendees do wear their "Sunday best," most folks wear casual clothes on Sunday morning.  Don't worry about what you wear-just come expecting a great experience!

If you prefer your own Bible, bring it with you to church. Our Pastor will refer to scripture during his teaching time in the service. There are Bibles in the sanctuary chairs that are for your use and to take home with you if you don't own a Bible.

 

What’s available for my kids?

We know that as a parent you need to be sure that your children are in a SAFE learning environment. And we know that your children are looking for a FUN place to learn. Our Christian Education Department has worked hard to provide strength in both of these areas.  Your child’s learning time will be one of creative engagement with the teachings of the Scripture and how they can be applied to your child’s life now.

What About Security? 

We take child safety and security seriously.  Every teacher or assistant that volunteers with children and youth must successfully go through a process that is outlined in our Protection Policy.  This includes an interview/application, yearly workshop and a regular police check.  A foyer monitor provides additional security to ensure the safety of every attendee.  Each child (Gr. 5 and under) must be registered before entering a children's program and be signed in/out.  If your baby is in the nursery, they will be received and cared for with loving, gentle hands and we will give you a paging device so that you can be contacted at any time if you are needed.  

What should I expect in church?

Our congregation has people from many nations and we gather together to join in joyful songs of praise, as well as more reflective songs led by a worship band.  Opportunity is given in most services to share items of praise and/or concern before we pray together. Often there will be drama, special music or a visual component to our services that enhances our engagement with God and His Word.   Each Sunday there is a teaching time that seeks to help us grow in understanding and applying the Bible to our lives.   It is our prayer that each Sunday we will connect with our triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and experience more of His love and truth that has the power to change our lives.
