christmas volunteers needed

We would love to have as many regular Heartland attenders join us on Sunday, December 23 at 3 and 5 PM to alleviate some of the space crunch on Christmas Eve. 

We know we will have a lot of visiting families, and that means we will need extra help in Heartland Kids, ushers in the auditorium, and greeters at all entrances. We are looking for 100 extra volunteers to welcome our guests with excellence.

CLICK HERE and tell us which service and role you can volunteer for!

We can’t wait to spend Christmas with you!

adoption/foster care training classes

Tuesdays, January 8-March 26, 6-9 PM in the Garage

Heartland will be hosting the classes necessary to become foster parents and/or respite care providers in the state of Kansas. The TIPS-MAPP Training will start on January 8- March 26 with an informational night. The class will then run through March 26 (11 weeks total, not meeting over Spring Break). It will be from 6-9 PM each Tuesday night. 

A word about foster RESPITE CARE – did you know that in the state of Kansas, a foster family cannot leave their foster kiddos overnight unless it is a licensed respite home? That makes it really difficult for these families to travel for any reason or to even have a weekend break. Please consider becoming licensed just for this purpose.

CLICK HERE to sign up now. Childcare is not available for this class.
