Message From Pastor Bob Huisman


This Sunday is the first Sunday of Lent on the Church Calendar.  Lent (meaning spring) is a time of preparation for the celebration of Easter.  It is usually marked by prayer, repentance, and fasting.

During the season of Lent, we will be taking a close look at Romans 8.  On Sunday morning, we will examine Romans 8:1-4 and “Life in the Spirit: Forever Freedom”.  Our worship teams will provide a new song for the season and we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper together.

We will also introduce 8:28 testimonies – check you mailbox with more to come on Sunday morning.

You are invited to come to the prayer room following any morning worship service where prayer volunteers are ready to listen and to pray for you and the concerns on your heart.

Please invite every worship guest to walk with you to the Welcome Center where they can receive their free gift and more information about Heritage CRC.

At 5:00 PM, we conclude our preaching series on the 40 Days of Prayer Challenge with the theme “Praying with Confidence” from Matthew 7:7-12.  The Prayer Challenge itself will conclude on Friday, February 23.
