HOPE SERVED HERE
Heartland Church exists to love people to life and one way we do that is providing hope to those in our community who are in need of assistance. Our goal is not to simply distribute food and other material goods, but to develop lasting relationships that, over time, will encourage those who receive help to return and help others.
If you need assistance or want to volunteer to help, check out the tabs below to learn more.
First Serve Saturdays begin with a prayer and worship service at 9am in our student auditorium. Everyone is welcome to join!
First Serve Saturdays were created to help our dream teamers serve the local community each month. We want to be the hands and feet of Christ in the community, and Serve Saturdays allow us to do just that! Serving this city is our calling!
