Serve Day

HEARTLAND CHURCH'S SERVE DAY

On July 15th, we are launching out groups around the area to serve in different capacities throughout our community. We know through service and generosity we are changing lives – for those serving, for those being served, and through the example we are leaving for others. Grab a friend and come join us as we seek to make a change right here in our own city on Serve Day 2017.  

SERVE DAY OPPORTUNITIES

 

Additional Serve Day Ideas

If your group would like to create its own service opportunity, we encourage you to do so! Begin by asking your small group members the following questions. Hopefully, the answers will help you develop a project that is a perfect fit for your group.

Who in your neighborhood has a need?

What business or organization within your sphere of influence could use a blessing?

What project types best suit your group’s ages and abilities? (prayer, worship, teaching, physical labor, etc.)
