Heartland Baptist Church

Cancellation – Feb 11, 2018

Due to the icy road conditions throughout the area this mornings services have been canceled.  Streets in Perryville are mostly clear but parking lots, sidewalks, are still covered in ice.  Highway 61 is partially cleared but lettered roads and county roads are still solid ice.  If you must travel drive slow and use caution.

Our parking lot has been treated so if road conditions improve throughout the day we will attempt to have evening services at 6 p.m.  Check back here for updates.

Check out our sermons page to listen to a previously recorded sermon.

UPDATE: 2 p.m.

It does not appear that the weather is going to cooperate for the ice to melt.  We will have our next service on Wednesday evening at 7 p.m.

Next Sunday Terry Jones from BIMI will be with us all day to represent BIMI’s Central America Missionary/Church planting ministry.  Come listen as he shares what God is doing in Central America and how we can partner with God in reaching people in this area of the world.


Couples Night

Strong marriages is a priority here at Heartland Baptist Church.  Strong marriages means strong home and that is good for everyone in the home, the church, the community, and the country.  In an effort to strengthen the home we schedule an activity for the married couples of the church (and we invite couples from the community too) around the Valentine holiday.  This year we had an exceptionally good time.  24 couples gathered Friday night February 9 and enjoyed fellowship, food, some fun activities and a devotional message encouraging unity in the marriage relationship.

Special thanks to the Kiefer girls who worked hard to decorate, plan and prepare deserts, and watch all of the young people while their parents enjoyed the evening together!

Here are some pictures and video clips of the evening.  If you missed out this year mark your calendars for next year and stay tuned for details.

Guest Speaker for January 28th

This month’s Fellowship Sunday will be extra special. On top of all the delicious food that will show up January 28th,  we will be having Dr. S.M.Davis and his lovely wife, Mrs. Reajean, with us all day! He will be preaching several different messages on anger; and even if you aren’t an angry person these messages are life changing!


I just spoke with Bro. Davis and have finalized the messages for this special day.  Here is the schedule and message titles.  Please consider coming to spend the whole day listening to Bro. Davis share wisdom and give counsel to help you and your family overcome some of the most devastating challenges facing families in our day.  He will also have tables set up so that you can purchase other messages to help you and your loved ones.

The lunch is pot-luck style, you are welcome to come and participate in the bringing and in the eating.  If you cannot bring anything please know that we have never run out of food and no one has ever left hungry because there was not enough food.

Bible Study hour 10:00 a.m. – “Don’t Stop Communicating”

Morning Worship 11:00 a.m. – “The Demonic like nature of anger”

Lunch 12:00 till 1:30

Afternoon service 2:00 p.m. – “Are you offended, or un-offend-able?”

Dr and Mrs Davis will be heading back home following the 2 p.m. service.

Winter Weather, Jan. 7th

With the threat of winter weather for our up coming Sunday please check back for details on service times and possible cancellations.  At this time I am hopeful that we can hold our morning services at normal times.  The 6 p.m. evening service looks questionable, but God already knows what the weather will do.

If the LORD is willing…I’ll see you Sunday!


Christmas 2017

Each year around Christmas we try to minister to our community some way, whether it be through caroling, the children’s Christmas play, or inviting them to a special Christmas service. This year will be no different. The first event planned is Christmas caroling at some of the local nursing homes, where we will pass out cookies and handmade cards to the residents after we sing. Then, on Christmas Eve, we will be having a live nativity on the front lawn of the church from 2p.m. till 5:30. People, costumes, live animals, and a manger! We have never done a live nativity, but look forward to seeing the community’s response! Refreshments will be served in the church. Afterwards, there will be a candlelight service starting at 5:30. We hope to see you there!

Thanksgiving Dinner 2017

November is just around the corner, and once again preparations are underway for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner at Heartland Baptist Church. Every year we have a wonderful time of sweet fellowship, praise, and giving of thanks…..Not to mention the food!!! There is always a smorgasbord of food for Thanksgiving Dinner. From ham and mashed potatoes to deer roast and gravy, we usually have it all. Sometimes even a turkey shows up! This is our first Thanksgiving in the new building, and we hope to have a crowd of visitors to minister to. So if you care to drop by, here are the details:

17th Anniversary Week

The week of our 17th anniversary meeting and the dedication of our building was filled with blessings and fond memories. We began the meeting with powerful preaching on Sunday. Then on Monday a crew of men from Fairfax Baptist Temple arrived to work on the building throughout the week.  Each day the men worked their hearts out to help remodel the building, and every evening we heard preaching from a variety of pastors and evangelist. On Thursday Pastor Greg Dawson from Tuscan, AZ flew in with Serge and Katie Lapare, dear friends that were a major part of starting Heartland Baptist Church over 17 years ago. There was 1 salvation decision (Praise the Lord!), and a whole lot of work was put into preparing the basement for use and into finishing the office space. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of the pastors, evangelist, and brothers in Christ that traveled so far and helped so much!
