Dear Heartland Family, It has been an incredible Fall season here at Heartland Church. Each week more and more people are coming to our services. You’ve been spreading the word, inviting your friends, stepping up to serve and give, and it’s having an impact. You are loving people well, and it’s leading them into a transforming relationship with Jesus! Every week people are being baptized after nearly every service.
With that being said, we have a problem and it’s getting in the way of our mission.
The truth is that we are TOO FULL at the 11:00 a.m. service at our 96th Street location. Not only is the auditorium FULL, but our kids environments are AT CAPACITY every week. If a guest family of four were to come in 10 minutes late, most likely they could not sit together. We are simply out of room! Even more problematic is that we are essentially OUT OF PARKING at our 11:00 a.m. service. Our parking team tells me they have witnessed cars pull up, and when they can’t find parking easily, they have driven away.
We can’t let that happen!
I NEED YOUR HELP. The easiest way to SOLVE THIS CHALLENGE is for you and your family to make the move to the 9:00 a.m. at 96th Street or 10:00 a.m at our HSE Campus. Here are 4 reasons why an earlier service would be a great move for you.
- You’ll make room for new people to be led into a transforming relationship with Jesus. The reality is unchurched people are more likely to show up at 11:00 than ANY OTHER TIME. When you free up room for others when they’re most likely to attend, you are LOVING PEOPLE WELL! You are being a generous servant! Since day one, we’ve been here for those who are not here yet! By giving up your seat and moving to 9:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m., you reflect who we are. WE ARE GIVERS!
- The 9:00 a.m. and the 10:00 a.m. service is exactly like the 11:00 a.m. service. Sometimes it’s even better. Your kids are covered and loved whenever you show up. Even at HSE, we have created special environments just for them that you will love.
- The 10:00 AM service at Hamilton Southeastern High School state-of-the-art-auditorium has 900 of the most comfortable theatre seats and unlimited parking making it much easier and more convenient. Service is over by 11:15 A.M.
- Early birds get the worm! Studies show that being a morning person can make you thinner, happier and healthier (I’m not making this up). For you super early birds, you can get a real head start to your day by coming to the 8:00 a.m. Awaken Service in our upstairs chapel at 96th Street.
So…will you LAUNCH OUT and make the move this week? Will you love people well? Your decision WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE for someone in our community this week!
On the journey with you,
Pastor Darryn Scheske
