Easter at Heartland

You are invited to celebrate this Easter, April 9th, at Heartland! You will experience a welcoming family and a powerful message of hope as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and talk about how that changes everything. On Easter, we will have egg hunts at 9:45 am for babies-5th grade before our Worship Gathering at 10:30 am. We would love to have you join us! You can find more information about Heartland and what a Sunday looks like here at hbcalton.com/visit.

We will also have a Good Friday service on Friday, April 7th, at 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary. This service will be focused on the death of Jesus on the cross. We will sing together, study the Word, and take the Lord's Supper together as we remember Jesus' death on the cross to pay for our sin. There will not be childcare during the Good Friday service.

What to expect

Welcoming Community

We are created for relationship and community. You can expect to find that at Heartland as people welcome you into the family at Heartland. Whether you have grown up in the church or never been inside a church before, you will experience the love of Jesus through His people. 

Engaging Worship

Each Sunday morning, we gather to worship Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords. Our worship band will lead the congregation in upbeat and Gospel-centered worship that focuses us on the truth of who Jesus is and what He did for us. Pastor Alex will speak each week from the Bible as we grow together as followers of Jesus.

Safe & fun Kids Ministry

For kids of all ages, you will find a safe and fun space for your kids to learn about Jesus and how much He loves them. Childcare is provided for our children pre-K and younger, while K-5th grades will be dismissed during the Worship Gathering for Children's Church. All of our children's activities happen in our secure children's wing.

I'm new! What do I need to know?


We want to provide a fun, safe, and secure space for all of our children. To ensure safety and security, all children (babies-6th grade) will be checked in at our Kids' Check-in Desk that is across from the Worship Center. Each child will receive a sticker with their name and a security code that must be matched with the parent/guardian's tag.

We always want to know the specific needs of your family, so we can take care of your kids best. For this reason, we have all new families fill out a New to Heartland form. If you'd like to come prepared, email Pastor John, our Family Pastor, to get the sheet ahead of time if you want to save time by registering early.
