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.

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!

  • Missions:Hope Center-Learn to Earn-4/4/20-9/26/20

    8:30 am

    Heartland Community Church

    In it’s 5th year, the Hope Center’s “Learn to Earn” program provides summer lawn- care employment opportunities for youth on Kansas City’s east side.  Heartland is the founding partner in Learn to Earn and is seeking pairs of volunteers to work once per month and shoulder-to-shoulder with Hope Center teens cutting grass and tending to their gardens.  Learn to Earn students are supervised by Hope Center staff and the role we play is to instruct, demonstrate, encourage and do great work so that these students gain that first-job experience that teaches so many life lessons.  Heartlander teams will volunteer in a Saturday morning rotation.

  • Missions:Team World Vision 6K

    9:00 am

    6k Registration
    THIS SPRING, CHANGE A LIFE.  Join thousands of people across the globe and hundreds in Kansas City in our mission to bring life-changing clean water and fullness of life to children in communities around the world. 
    On May 16, our Heartland church family can walk or run World Vision’s Global 6K for Water from our own homes and neighborhoods.  No matter where or how we do the 6K, every registration brings clean water to one person in need- giving them access to the clean water to wash their hands and stay safe.  Let’s go the (virtual) distance together.
    WHY A VIRTUAL RACE?
    Social gather may be postponed, but connectedness is not!  This is the perfect opportunity to strengthen relationships, feel and show God’s love, and bring clean water to those in need.  Instead of feeling isolated, let’s connect stronger than ever and help make lasting change.
