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.

 

EASTER: JESUS CHRIST IS RISEN!

Written by Super User on . Posted in Sunday Sermons

Easter: Jesus Christ is risen! Alleluia! Alleluia!
 
Easter Season brings different sounds to the ears. Are you listening? Do you hear the sound of trumpets, trombones, drums and chirping birds? Easter brings new life and growth.

We hear sounds of joy, music, glory and celebration. We know something marvelous is happening. A visit through our community makes us aware that nature is rejoicing. We can see in our gardens new growth in shades of green, the splash of red and pink azaleas, the lilies and fresh smelling hyacinth spring into blooms. The Spring Season reveals an inner joy in which all nature sings: Alleluia! The sight of new life brings renewal of nature and a sense of joy.

 
Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Christ. We are reminded of God’s faithful promise of everlasting life for everyone. The women named Mary and Mary Magdalene were overjoyed as they ran from the empty tomb. They were exhilarated with joy and shouted the good news to the others: Christ is risen! Alleluia!
 
The story of Easter invites us to celebrate our relationship with the Creator. Wherever life is renewed, there is the sound of joy. There was joy at the resurrection of Jesus on the first Easter morning. There was joy in the father's home when the prodigal son renewed his relationships.
 
There is joy in deepening our faith and relationship with God. There is hope when we work in harmony with God’s mission for saving lives. There is harmony in the sounds of creation, and we see a reflection of that harmony in the beauty that surrounds us. These are the times when we feel at one with all creation and the Creator.
