Love + Life

Love + Life is our outreach initiatives where we can love people to life through Jesus Christ. Twice a year, we ask the whole church to participate in giving back to our community and focus their efforts in helping those around us. In the summer, we have what we call Love + Life Day, This is an incredible day where we’ve had up to 200 people in our church serve in the city of Carrollton and the surrounding DFW area. During the winter, we have what we call Christmas Love + Life. During the Christmas season, we have several projects that people can participate in some way to make sure we love people to life.

 

 

Below you can find all the projects you can participate in for Christmas Love + Life 2019

Christmas Giving Tree & Homemade Christmas Stocking | November 17th – December 8th (Deadline)

This Christmas we are partnering with Christian Community Action to help give our community a Christmas they won’t forget. With the Christmas Giving Tree you will have the opportunity to take an ornament from the tree that will be labeled with the gift to buy on the ornament. Once purchased one simply just needs to bring the gift back unwrapped to the Christmas Love + Life Table before the December 8th deadline.

Heartland is also partnering with Christian Community Action to make homemade stockings for families in need. This could be done in your home or with a group of friends. At the Christmas Love + Life Table in the Heartland Lobby, you can pick out a pattern/design to sew and give to CCA this holiday season.

Christmas Event at CCA | December 19th

Heartland Church has been a Ministry Partner with Christian Community Action for many years.  CCA provides rescue, relief and restoration to people experiencing a life crisis.  This year, we have offered to host a CCA Giving Tree, with ornaments that have gift items that children in our community will receive this Christmas.  One of CCA’s core values is dignity and they extend that dignity by holding a Christmas outreach program for parents.  Parents come to CCA at an appointed time to pick up unwrapped toys, stockings, books, devotionals and wrapping supplies.  This allows them the opportunity to participate in the gift giving. Heartland Church will be sending a team of people to participate in this great day! Below are two opportunities to serve at the event.
Indoor “Elves” – Our “Elves” will walk with families and help them collect their gifts and supplies for Christmas at the CCA Christmas event. You will need to wear comfortable clothes and festive clothing is encouraged! Ages 12 and older please, Click here to register for this opportunity.
Gift Packing/Bagging – This group of people will help pack up the toy bags for each of the families. Ages 12 and older please, Click here to register for this opportunity.
Over 1,600 children will be served through CCA’s Christmas Outreach program.  You can take one or more ornaments with the gift items, purchase the gifts and return them to Heartland Church by Sunday, December 8th.  Let’s do God’s work together with CCA.
