From My Heart

Back to Worship

Praise the Lord From the Heart, we are blessed that we have returned to worship since the start of the pandemic. Throughout all of From the Heart we are having modified Worship Services and Bible Study. Thank God we have made it to this point where our church buildings and facilities are open to the people of God.

We know that there have been drastic changes in our society as a result of COVID-19 and those changes have affected the Body of Christ. We are experiencing change in our church and as I have told us many times before, Change is a good thing and when change comes, things change. We have all experienced changes in how we work, how we are educated and how our children are schooled, how we get basic services and how we go about our lives.

Throughout these changes, we know that God has not changed. He remains the same and His Will remains for His Church to prevail against the gates of hell. To that end, it is vital that we get back to worship in church. As many of us who can come should return to church. Too many who are eligible to attend church are not. This is not good. Attending church is extremely helpful to the Christian’s walk.

It is not good if we are willing to go out to public places for other reasons but are not willing to come to church. It is not good if we send our children to school but will not bring them to church.

From My Heart

It is not good if we go to social gatherings but do not take the time to come to church. It is not good if we take vacations and stay-cations but do not come to the house of God.

These scenarios are not fictitious, they are happening in From the Heart. Too many of us are not living according to the correct priority and have made other things more important than assembling together in church. Even after God has been merciful and faithful to us, we choose not to come to church. We want to make sure we are building our lives, our church and our families on a good foundation. Part of that foundation is being an active participant in our local church and teaching our children the important value of being attached to, firmly fixed in, submitted and committed to our local church.

We Are From the Heart

From the Heart Church Ministries of Waldorf

From the Heart Church Ministries of Waldorf is located in Charles County, Maryland in the Smallwood Village Shopping Center. The Waldorf church was started in 2002 by the late Pastor John Howie, with his wife Reverend Patricia Howie. Today, Pastor & Mrs. Michael White are working diligently to prepare the Waldorf church for God’s next move through rightly divided teachings designed to equip the membership with tools for successful Christian living. Pastor White has a heart to serve God’s people and he and his wife take seriously their role. The people in the Waldorf church enjoy fellowship, worship and many participate in the volunteer ministries. There is variety in the age of the congregation at the church and this brings about a wonderful gathering of Christian fellowship.
