Spiritual Life

Our hope and prayers are that students, staff, parents and the entire Heritage community will experience the presence of God here on our campus.  Whether you are on campus for only one day or for twelve years, it is our desire that your relationship with God is strengthened during your time at Heritage.  Students are given many opportunities in and outside of the classroom to develop and strengthen their faith.  Through corporate worship, small group discussion, intentional community outreach and more, the spiritual life at Heritage is living and active.

We count it an absolute privilege to have students and staff from over 25 different countries represented in our Heritage community.  This gives us a great opportunity to see how beautiful and diverse the image of God is as we journey with one another.  We strive to learn from one another’s faith and seek unity even through our different experiences and understandings. We believe that as we actively engage with one another, we will discover God on a deeper and personal level.

At Heritage we value each person as a unique creation of God. We believe each person has purpose and potential to fulfill God’s will in the world. Our desire is to facilitate each student’s spiritual growth in an intentional and encouraging manner. We do this through a variety of activities.

Chapel

Every student attends weekly chapels that are age-group specific, in order to meet students at their level. Each elementary class conducts a chapel once per semester showcasing what they are learning in class about their walk with God. In secondary chapels, students have the opportunity to help lead praise and worship and listen to inspiring yet challenging teaching.

Youth Group and Discipleship

Our chaplains conduct regular youth groups for both middle school and high school in a variety of formats to keep youth group fresh and meaningful. We also offer discipleship groups for secondary boys and girls.

Mission Trips and Service Projects

Each grade level from Kindergarten through Grade 12 participates in either a mission trip or service project depending on the grade, exposing the students to a wide variety of situations and ministry opportunities. In the past, students have visited widows, conducted human trafficking awareness talks with refugees, ministered in local schools, made cards for hospital patients, and more!

Retreats

Secondary students participate in a retreat during the first semester to provide an opportunity to connect with God and each other at an off-site retreat center. The students participate in swimming, sports, and special games designed especially to foster team-building and relationship growth. We have a guest speaker and extended worship times. It is always special to see how God uses this time to bring students closer to Him and to one another.
