What to Expect

Welcome To Heritage – What to Expect/FAQ

How Should I Dress?

While many members choose to “dress up” out of respect for God, many members also dress casually. There is no required dress code here at Heritage.

Are Children Welcome?

All are welcome! We love to have children worship with us and we encourage young children to worship with their parents because God’s Word is intended for them as well as adults. If your little one should become too restless during worship, we have a mother’s room set up in our school’s library.  The library us equipped with a TV so you can continue to watch the service live from there.

What happens During the Services?

Our services follow an order of service from our hymnal, the Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary (ELH). There are hymnals in each row if you would like to follow along that way, but please also be sure to take a bulletin upon arrival as our service is also printed in its entirety so you can follow along and participate in our worship.  

We confess our sins to God, and then we receive forgiveness because of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection through His called messenger, the Pastor.  We hear Bible readings from both the Old and New Testaments.  Heritage is a singing church, and the congregation participates in worship by singing parts of our liturgy and with hymns which are found in the hymnal. 

Our pastor provides guidance and encouragement for Christian faith and life through his sermon which is based on one of our Bible readings, reminding us of our sinfulness but also of our forgiveness in Christ. We respond to God’s amazing gift of forgiveness and salvation with offerings and prayers of thanks. We end the service and begin our week with God’s promise to bless and keep us.




If you are planning a visit to our congregation for the first time, we want you to know how glad we are to have you with us. We also want to take this opportunity to explain our worship service to you, so that you will feel at home. Our worship services follow the tradition preserved and amended through the generations from early Christendom. As such none of our orders of service are Lutheran inventions, although they were reformed and corrected for Lutheran use in the days of the Reformation. Christians from Anglican, Roman Catholic, and other denominations will recognize many familiar elements of our worship services. We use the Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary, Published by the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (formerly the Norwegian Synod) in 1996. The Hymnary includes a number of orders of worship, including four variations of the Divine Service, the Office of Prime (for early morning), Matins (morning), and Vespers (evening). Just as our orders of worship are not strictly Lutheran, but representative of Christian worship far predating the Reformation era, so also the hymns in our Hymnary are not all the product of Lutherans. The hymn selections in the Hymnary are examples of the finest of Christian worship hymns handed down through the centuries. Hymn authors and composers represent a variety of Christian traditions, because great hymns, proclaiming the truth of Christ, and grounded in Holy Scripture, are treasures regardless of the denomination affiliation of the author. We hope and pray that you will be blessed by the ministry of God’s Word during your time at Heritage. We hope that you will come and worship with us again next week. You will always be most welcome in our midst, in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ!
