arrows worship event

Thursday, September 28 @ 7 PM in the Unfinished Space

If you are someone who enjoys worship and original music, this evening is for you! Join our Arrows worship community for a special event in the Unfinished Space at Heartland. We will be gathering to turn our hearts toward God in prayer and worship. Original music has been rising up within our community and we are excited to engage with that music in this space.

This is a family friendly event, so kids can join you in the gathering. We hope to see you there!


join a journey community (or host/lead one!)

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!
