First Time F.A.Q
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.
Our Sunday Worship Service is at 10am with Nursery/Toddler care and Kids Zone for children up to Grade 5. You will be welcomed by our Greeters and they will be glad to offer you any assistance you need. A weekly bulletin is available as you enter into the Sanctuary which highlights many opportunities here at Heart Lake and you are most welcome to join in.
Look for the next Newcomer's Luncheon and let us introduce ourselves to you.
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.
- What should I expect in church?
- How do I get there and when do I need to arrive?
- What should I wear or bring?
- What's available for my kids?
- What about security?
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.
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.
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.
