Welcome to Heart Lake United Church

At Heart Lake United Church you will find people with diverse backgrounds and experiences all coming together to share our faith and build a caring, inclusive community. Everyone belongs!

Our Mission: To live an active faith connecting God, people and community.

These are not easy times. As we begin to ‘open up’ we may be feeling relieved or maybe even more uncertain and vulnerable. The early followers of Jesus were not living in easy times either. They faced disease, economic uncertainty, great income disparity and injustice maintained by force.

Jesus knew that standing up for justice and protecting the rights and the lives of the vulnerable during such a time is not easy. Yet Jesus encouraged his followers to do just that.  He told his first disciples “I am sending you out like sheep in the midst of wolves.” He advised them to be “wise as serpents and gentle as doves.” (Matthew 10:16)

With so much information coming at us and so many expert opinions being shared, we all need to use our own wisdom to sort through it all. We need to seek reliable sources and trust our own common sense. We need to put the care of others before our own comfort. We need to speak out for justice, but do it gently, firmly but gently, so that when we come through this time we will have built a more just and peaceful society for everyone. 

Jesus has more advice for being faithful witnesses to the gospel during challenging times. Join our online worship. 

  Heart Lake United Church is a model of diversity and living in harmony.   
  • all ages,
  • all genders,
  • all races,
  • all religious experiences

Everyone is important to Christ so everyone is important to us.

We all belong.

Heart Lake United Church reaches out through various programs and there is something for everyone.

On Sunday mornings  at 10:30 we worship with inspiring singing led by our music team, sermons that make the Bible relevant to today, and through sincere prayer.

We have a BLAST program for younger kids and SURGE program for youth. Our infants and toddlers are cared for by a trained ECE worker.

 

CALL TO FOLLOW JESUS

Written by Super User on . Posted in Sunday Sermons

Sunday February 13, 2022 - Jesus said to Philip, ''Follow me'' (John 1:43), to Levi, ''Follow me'' (Luke 5:27), to Peter and Andrew ''Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” (Matt. 4:19). Jesus said to Matthew, ''Follow me'' (Matt. 9:9). James and John “follow me.” (Matt. 4:21)

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” (Matt. 16:24)

The people in Capernaum catch a glimpse of the light. The lost were found-one by one. The hungry were fed-one by one. Those who were sick received healing one by one. Broken relationships were restored one by one.  Eventually a crowd followed Jesus and Jesus needed help. Your gifts and my gifts together in community make a difference in this part of God’s kingdom. May the Spirit quicken our responses to keep following Jesus everyday of our lives. 

On Sunday we will join in the celebration of Black History month. We will sing songs, read liturgy, poems, prayers and stories that reflect the heritage of black people. We will hear of their struggles then and the dire need today for justice in church and society. Come and be part of God’s story and share the love of God with all people. Amen
