We hope that you’ll consider joining us for a midweek believers service on a
First Wednesday or praying and serving our community at a First Saturday.

Learn more about each environment below.

WHAT ARE FIRST WEDNESDAYS?
First Wednesdays take place at 7pm on the first Wednesday of every month in our student auditorium.

First Wednesday is a service created for believers in a setting completely different than our weekend services. First Wednesdays exist to encourage believers through extended and focused times of worship, altar and prayer ministry, and discipleship. Since the primary goal of our weekends is to help people to find and know God, many times, the focused teachings cover topics that might not be taught on a weekend.

Since people who attend HC gather in homes throughout the week for small groups, those small groups are cancelled during First Wednesday week so everyone can gather in one environment together one time each month. Think of it like a monthly midweek family dinner.

Heartland Kids is available through 5th grade. We hope that you’ll join us for each First Wednesday experience the rest of this year!

WHAT ARE FIRST SATURDAYS?
First Saturdays begin in prayer at 9am and take place on the first Saturday of every month in our main auditorium.

First Saturdays were created to help our partners serve the community each month in planned and strategic ways. Each month, we gather together for focused prayer and focused service.

The mornings begin with a one-hour prayer service featuring worship, corporate and individual prayer led by one of our pastors or prayer team members. After the prayer service ends, team members branch off into various service opportunities dependent on the day.

At each First Saturday, we host Grace Bridge Food Distributions to our community from 11am-1pm. But in addition, we use our First Saturday to serve others in a myriad of ways. Whether that’s moving a widow into a new home, serving our local fire department or mowing the yard for an elderly family, the goal is to take the first Saturday and sow it into others. In doing so, we’re teaching our families and our flesh that Christ came to serve and not to be served—and the same is true for us as well.

We’ve attempted to make the First Saturday process as easy as possible. There isn’t a sign up necessary unless you’d like to serve at our Grace Bridge Food Distributions in which case, we ask you to please fill out this form.
