WHAT TO EXPECT
There’s a place for you at Heart of Harrisburg Church
“Be you!” We don’t take it light that you would be interested in joining our community, but I also understand that it is not necessarily easy for you either so to simplify the process hear us clearly and believe it when we say “Come as you are”. The best way that we can truly experience God is when we come authentically as we can possibly come, broken, bruised and lost. So come with the real and we pomise to make real you feel really welcomed, accepted and loved.
WHAT WE BELIEVE

We are a group of people who love Jesus and are amazed at the grace and love that shows us.
