Our hope is to equip and cultivate a community of people who intentionally care for the people in and around our lives. The journey starts with each of us. The Heartland Care team includes staff, pastoral elders and volunteers who are equipped to come alongside people in a time of need. Should your needs require attention beyond our care team, we will consult with you to find the best referral source to a professional partner.

Truth: A Love Story

We believe that God calls His Church to be a safe people that can talk about difficult things. Through our Truth: A Love Story series we will explore topics that include anxiety, depression, mental illness, and suicide. These are complex conversations that we hope to approach thoughtfully, scripturally and holistically towards healing and wholeness.

If these topics are likely to be triggering for you, however, please use discretion as you consider whether to attend.

Above all, we are for a grounded hope to rise as we gather – for those among us who suffer silently, for our next generation, and as we all approach the holiday season. So join us as we step together into the light of God’s Truth, the greatest love story ever lived.
