Heimdal Community Church celebrated it’s 70th anniversary

Special music provided by Eldon and Ruth Langerud

Heimdal Community Church celebrated it’s 70th anniversary on Sunday August 18, 2019. The church was filled with friends from Barrhead to Red Deer who enjoyed a lovely service reminiscing of times gone by and celebrating God’s goodness in their lives as they reflected on the past.

Pastor Glen Forsberg delivered a challenging message to the congregation that encouraged us all and we enjoyed the special music provided by Eldon and Ruth Langerud, the “Hiller Sisters,” Rita Keehn and Bill Witzke.

A delicious noon meal was served and we enjoyed eating outside while renewing friendships and making new friends, too.

The afternoon service was a highlight for many as the old German chorus books were brought out and the Hiller Sisters lead the congregation by singing in German. It didn’t take long for everyone to remember their native German tongue and before long the church was once again filled with songs of the past.

Pastor Dan Friesen delivered an encouraging short devotional and after the service we enjoyed more fellowship time together.

Sunday Morning Services are held at 10:30 (except for summer long weekends) and Sunday School is provided for children during the morning service. For more information please call 780-387-5675.
