Grand Opening Recap
September 6-7 marked the official Grand Opening for our new campus at Heartland. It was great to see the passion and enthusiasm of the people of Heartland and very exciting to welcome so many visitors. Some of the highlights for me included:
- Our first ever parking team coordinating the traffic flow coming and going in the parking lot. They created a very welcoming entrance to people who were new to the campus.
- An energized worship team accompanied by a choir and some talented brass instruments. What a blessing to be led by these worship teams every week as they humbly use their talents to create a worship experience for people to encounter God.
- Pastor Al's sermon encapsulated what Heartland is all about. Although we are thankful for the blessing of this building, it is the people of Heartland that are the church, and nothing has changed when it comes to us living out Heartland's five values. I would encourage you to listen to the sermon if you missed it.
- And finally, I was moved to see the community between people that took place after each of the services as we shared food together.
We are so thankful to all the volunteers that helped make the Grand Opening such a special weekend. We wanted to share some of the pictures from the weekend with you.
