What is SERVE Day?

SERVE Day is our outreach initiative where we love people to life through Jesus Christ around our community and neighborhoods. Every year we ask the whole church to participate one day in giving back to our community and focus their efforts in helping those around us. On previous SERVE Days we have had up to 300+ people in our church serve in the city of Carrollton and the surrounding DFW area

This year our theme comes from Mark 10:45

“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

At Heartland our mission is to love people to life in Jesus Christ and this year for SERVE Day our focus is “We Exist to Serve Others” We have an entire team to help you create the best project to touch our community.

We want you to be a table leader for our Feed My Starving Children Project. Register Here to lead and to get more information.
