Where should I go?
Sunday mornings have been designed with guests in mind. As soon as you arrive on campus, follow the signs to the Guest Entrance/Parking. Guest Services is located just inside the building. A volunteer at one of our 4 stations will be available to meet you, answer your questions and make sure you know exactly where to go. If you arrive for Bible study, a volunteer will assist you in locating a group where you will find others who are the same age or in the same life stage. If you arrive for Together Worship, a volunteer will assist you in finding a comfortable seat in the Worship Center. See a volunteer at any of our Guest Services stations should you need any information or assistance during your visit.
What should I expect?
Bible Study at 9am each Sunday is a small group experience for all ages. Organized by age and life stage, this is a focused time to build relationships, learn and apply biblical truth and serve others in the church and community. Together Worship at 10:15am is a corporate gathering of the church family each Sunday morning and includes a blend of music, creative worship experiences and biblical teaching.
What about kids?
Kids are loved and cared for at Heritage! Guest Services volunteers are available to help you know exactly where to go and what to do with your kids. If you arrive for Bible study, a volunteer will assist you in registering your preschool or elementary children and getting them to the appropriate groups. If you arrive for Together Worship, a volunteer will assist you in registering your preschool children for Promiseland, in the Preschool Building, as your elementary children will attend Together Worship with you. Registration on your first visit will take a few moments longer as child security is a priority in our Children’s Ministry.
What should I wear?
At Heritage, we want you to be yourself and come just as you are. You will find it to be a casual and comfortable atmosphere. While you may see a few suits, you will also see people in jeans. Business casual would be the best description for what most people wear on Sundays.
How do I join Heritage?
After a visit or a few visits, you may be ready to choose Heritage as your church. Becoming a member is a simple process, but an important decision as we partner with you and your family to serve together in our mission of leading people into a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ in Montgomery and beyond. Our staff and other ministry teams do an excellent job of following up with guests during their first few visits. Feel free to ask questions and seek the information you need as you consider membership at Heritage. New members are received at the end of the service during the invitation following the Pastor’s sermon. At that time, Pastor Teman will ask you a few questions and pray with you about this exciting step. There is a commitment card to be completed at that time or this card can be completed ahead of time and brought with you – cards are available at the front of the Worship Center or at Guest Services. Following the invitation and an introduction of your family, we will ask you to stick around as your new church family comes by to affirm your decision and celebrate with you.
After I join Heritage?
Each quarter we host a New Member Orientation on a specific Wednesday night. We highly encourage all adults who are new members to attend and become acclimated to life and ministry at Heritage. While sharing a meal together, staff ministers will dialogue with new members - covering our history, our vision, member responsibilities, how to get connected and how to serve in ministry and more. This time of orientation is also designed for attenders who are considering membership at Heritage. New members who have not attended previously and guests will be contacted regarding our next orientation. A few days after joining, you will receive a new member packet with helpful information and resources for your family to equip you until you can attend the next orientation.
How do I connect with others?
While you can certainly meet people before and after worship each Sunday, we believe that choosing a Bible study group on Sunday morning is the best way to get to know others in the church. Bible Study at 9am each Sunday is a small group experience for all ages. Organized by age and life stage, this is a focused time to build relationships, learn and apply biblical truth and serve others in the church and community. Volunteers at Guest Services are trained to help you find the Bible Study group that is the best fit for you. We suggest trying a few different groups before landing in the one that is the best fit for you. Preschool, Children, Student and College groups are divided by age/grade and adult groups are divided into Young Adult, Median Adult and Senior Adult groups. An info brochure is available at Guest Services with a detailed description of all groups.
