{journey communities}

join a journey community near you!

We were created to experience life in community. Heartland’s Journey Communities are gatherings of 3-12 people meeting regularly where you live, work, study or play. They hang out, learn about Jesus together and share their lives.

Communities often use The Journey study guide and our Sunday messages as the content for their gatherings. Groups may also work with a variety of Bible materials based on where their community wants to go. Test drive a Journey Community for a few weeks to see if it is right for you. Life is better when we journey together!

To find a Journey Community near you, CLICK HERE and search current offerings.

Don’t see something that fits your time, location, stage of life or topic preference? CLICK HERE to sign up as Journey Community host/leader. We will pair you with a coach and send you training information to help you get started!

do you have kiddos with special needs? we’d love to meet them!

Sundays at 11 AM

Through the Roof is Heartland’s ministry for kids with special needs.

The purpose of TTR ministry is to help all families with kids with special needs experience hospitality, acceptance, and support to participate in services at HCC. For families whose kids require a more direct one-on-one approach, or who have sensory issues that make a larger setting overwhelming, we have a sensory friendly room available during the 11 AM service on Sundays.

In our sensory friendly TTR room, kids are welcomed by a team of compassionate volunteers. While families enjoy an opportunity for worry-free worship, TTR kids are able to experience the love of Jesus through the respect and kindness of our volunteers. A team of Heartland Kids’ musicians provide a time of music, during which our TTR kids are able to freely worship.

Before you come, we ask that you fill out this registration form: CLICK HERE. We also ask that you stay in the room with your child the first week you attend. That way we can really get to know your child, and you can get to know us.

It is the hope of TTR ministry that HCC families with special needs will be able to form connections with each other and build relationships as we walk our unique paths with our kids.



Thanks for your generous giving–of time, expertise, and finances. We appreciate your partnership in helping every person, in every place, experience all of Jesus!
