Heartland Bank has Joined the Village!
We are happy to announce that Heartland Bank has joined Worthington Christian Village in providing banking services
to our residents and employees. For more than 28 years, Huntington Bank provided those services through a satellite
branch here at the Village. Late last year, Huntington let us know that they were “changing directions and priorities”
and were no longer interested in serving our residents at the Village. We were certainly sad to lose that relationship with
Huntington but are looking ahead to a long-term relationship with Heartland.
Heartland Bank started in Croton, Ohio and has been slowly
building their presence in Central Ohio. They are truly a
community bank and are committed to great customer
service and making a difference in the communities they
Heartland Bank will be at the Village each Monday from
9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. If you are at the Village, or at a
Heartland Bank location, join us in welcoming Heartland
Bank to Worthington Christian Village.

Worthington Christian Village chocolate!

The 15th Annual Auxiliary Golf Classic ...
Thanks One and All!
ith all the rain we have had this year, the Golf Committee
was praying for good weather as this type of event is “rain
or shine.” Well, the rain held off untill the teams were finishing
up their last holes. It ended up being a great day for golf!
On Friday, June 20th, 2014, several teams of golfers gathered at
Clover Valley Golf Club for a 9:00 a.m. shotgun start. The Golf
Classic concluded with a casual lunch followed by the award
presentations. The overall winning team with the lowest score
(59) included Tim Getz, Terry Hahn, Jay Denton and Dale
Mickey. Congratulations guys!
More than $6,500 was raised to benefit the residents of
Worthington Christian Village. Heartfelt thanks go out to our
Golf Committee, our many sponsors, and all those who took the
time to golf.
A Special Thanks to all

A Special Word of Thanks to Denny Hartman
vents like the Golf Classic do not happen without a whole
lot of work and planning and for the last nine events,
Denny Hartman was the “go to guy.” Denny worked with
his committee each year to try and make each and every Golf
Classic better than the last and Denny accomplished that
This was Denny’s last Golf Classic as he and his wife will be
spending the majority of their time at their house in Florida
(some of us are a little jealous).
A big thank you goes out to Denny for his many years of service
to the residents of the Village. We are going to miss you!
