SERVING our city, one project at a time
Mini Missions at Heartland Church are small, one-day projects that provide opportunities for people who call Heartland home to reach out and make a difference in our surrounding communities. We work to reach the least, the lonely, the lost and the left out in our communities alongside our partner organizations because we believe that we are better together.
We participate in a mini mission on the second Saturday of every month. To sign up, download the Serve app and keep an eye out for upcoming projects.
