Whether you’re looking for a new place to hear from God, looking for a new church home, or you’re in town visiting family and friends, you are our guest. We hope you’ll experience the presence of God on Sunday and see what He is doing at Heart of Longmont. We do understand you might have a few questions before you come, so here is some helpful information:
WHAT IS HEART OF LONGMONT ALL ABOUT?
At Heart of Longmont, we believe strongly that the creation of a flexible and durable faith calls for a balance between heart and head. A living and dynamic faith calls on the Holy Spirit to inform and enliven us as we engage the realities of everyday life. Our task is to bring the Biblical witness to our own unique experiences, tempered by our ability to evaluate and process both authoritative sources and the needs of an increasingly diverse culture and world. To this end we have embraced the identity of Heart of Longmont as the thinking-person’s church, “Where faith and reason are compatible”.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AT HEART OF LONGMONT ON SUNDAY MORNINGS?
Worship in the sanctuary from 10:00 am includes a blend of traditional and contemporary music, a scripture reading and a sermon.
After the service is a time for fellowship with coffee and snacks.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
Heart of Longmont is a come as you are church. Jeans or Sunday best are both acceptable.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU HAVE COMMUNION? WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
We serve communion every Sunday. Communion is open to all who want to participate, regardless of church membership, affiliation or baptismal status. Children are welcome to come forward with their parents. If you aren’t comfortable taking communion, no problem, just stay seated.
ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE JUDGY CHURCHES?
No! That’s not our job, that’s God’s job. We are here to love everyone as equals, just as Jesus did.
DO YOU WELCOME LGBT INDIVIDUALS?
Yes! Heart of Longmont is a proud member of the Reconciling Ministries Network.
