nextgen citywide night of worship

Wednesday, July 19, 7-9 PM on The Dock

Come join us Wednesday, July 19th for a night of connection with God and each other!

In Exodus 33:14, God says, "My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest", and on this night, we want to invite you to find some rest with other believers from around the KC metro area.

No concern of denominations, no concern of church affiliations, just worship of Jesus. Our worship team will be made up of artists from Heartland, The Cause, Indian Creek, Westside and more.

Join us for song, prayer, and connection with each other.

Come on out and bring a friend! Hope to see you there!

girls on the run at heartland

Monday & Wednesday, 4-5:30 PM in the Backyard

Heartland is hosting a Girls on the Run team this Fall. GOTR is a program for 3rd-6th grade girls that teaches identity, friendship skills, and community. In the midst of the lessons, we also help the girls set fitness/health goals and train to run a 5K. It is a thrilling experience to be a part of helping someone achieve what they believed was impossible!

The team will meet on Monday and Wednesday nights beginning September 11, from 4-5:30 PM in the backyard at HCC. We are seeking 4-5 coaches, who can either coach both Monday and Wendesday, or at least one of those days. The program wraps up with a citywide 5K in mid November.

If you would like to be part of this incredible coaching/mentoring opportunity, CLICK HERE to sign up at Heartland.

CLICK HERE to email Lisa Zulke with any questions!

If you would like to sign your daughter up for the Heartland team, stay tuned. The registration links from GOTRkc go live on August 2 and we will share them here. We are a community site, so girls from any school may participate. If you know any friends and neighbors near HCC, please invite them to join us, too!
