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 Saturdays begin in prayer at 9am and take place on the first Saturday of every month in our student 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.
