Frequently Asked Questions

We realize that it can sometimes be overwhelming visiting a church for the very first time.  Here at Heritage Baptist Church, you are our honored guest and we want you to be as comfortable as possible.  To help with this, we have assembled the answers to some commonly asked questions.  If you have any more questions, feel free to drop us a note or call the office.  We look forward to meeting you.

What should I wear?
Do you provide child care?
What are your services like?
Do you collect an offering?
Do I have to join the Church?
What should I wear?

It’s up to you.  For Sunday services, some people wear business or business casual attire, while others prefer jeans and casual dress.  On Wednesdays, most are casual or wearing what they wore to work that day.  We want you to be comfortable, and to feel welcomed.

Do you provide child care?

We have a nursery that is provided and staffed by trained caring workers during our services.

During our morning church services, we have children’s programs that run concurrent with our auditorium activities.  On Sunday evenings we have a Jrs. 4 Jesus class that our children 2-12 are able to attend.  However, if you desire your children to be with you during our services, that is perfectly fine with us.  The safety of your children is a primary concern for us.  All children’s program workers have met qualification requirements and follow safety guidelines.

What are your services like?

Our worship services consist of singing (both congregational and special music), along with prayer, to prepare our hearts to receive the Word of God.  The Pastor will preach a message that is Bible based and relevant to our everyday living so that we can apply the principles of God’s Word to our lives.  Typically, services conclude with an invitation to come forward for anyone wishing special prayer or counseling – however, this is optional, as we feel that it is God who directs those in attendance to make decisions for Him.

Do you collect an offering?

We do collect an offering during our services so that members have an opportunity to be obedient to God’s commands regarding giving.  Guests are welcome to but not expected to give.

We are interested in getting to know you, not take your money.

Do I have to join the Church?

No, you are welcome to attend our services without joining Heritage Baptist Church.  We do feel that church membership is an important part of a Christian’s spiritual growth, and if the Lord leads you to join us at the proper time, we would be happy to consider you as a candidate for membership.
