COVID-19 SERVE OPPORTUNITIES

THIRD SATURDAY FOOD DISTRIBUTION AT HEARTLAND

Heartland Community Church and the Harvesters Community Food Network are distributing food the third Saturday of each month, while supplies last. Distribution begins at approximately 9 AM in the South Parking Lot at Heartland. Food will be distributed first-come, first-served to families in need of emergency food assistance. Please plan to arrive no later than 9:30 AM.

If you are interested in learning more about how to serve at our Harvesters food distribution, contact Amy Wright.

It is important at this time that you not just show up to volunteer. Due to social distancing and safe handling requirements, we need to plan for and use volunteers widely. Amy can get you signed up and answer any of your questions.

COVID-19 PRAYER

One of the greatest ways we can give back right now is through prayer. Please pray for healthcare providers and first responders, protection of the spread of corona virus, and comfort for the sick and grieving. CLICK HERE to access a specific prayer list on COVID-19 from 24/7 Prayer.

Heartland is called to care for for the physically and spiritually impoverished in our city and our world by advocating for the at risk and vulnerable and addressing needs together in community. We are committed to provide training opportunities and on-ramps for people at Heartland to join in God’s mission. Currently we partner with local ministries, communities, schools and churches. These organizations have a similar heart for our city and our world. By partnering together we accomplish more than we could on our own. We focus on 3 areas:

Two Ways To Live Arrows Out

Test drive a serving experience that interests you to determine your passion and readiness. We call this an exposure opportunity.

Join an existing community (group) that is already serving arrows out. We call this an engagement opportunity.

Looking for clarity about your “arrows out” passion and fit? Contact Lori Roy or Jade Van Slyke for a discovery meeting. You were created to make a difference and to reach others right where you are with the passions and interests you have. May you continue to say yes to a God-sized adventure!

    4,620. That’s the number of people who now have clean, safe water because of this team over the past two years! 4,620!!! We are running again with Team World Vision to help provide life-changing clean water to children and communities in developing countries.  But this is not just for runners.  If you have ever wanted to do something about global poverty, say YES.  You can do this.  Every $50 you raise will change the life of one person with clean water.  Every mile you run will change you physically, mentally, and spiritually.  This isn’t an easy journey, but YOU CAN DO IT!!!
    Team World Vision provides everything you need to cross the finish line: training plans, weekly email encouragement, fundraising guides and incentives, and an incredible race weekend experience.
