HEARTLAND CHURCH'S SERVE DAY
Saturday, July 10
Every summer, we launch out groups around the area to serve throughout our community. Through our service and generosity, we are changing lives – for those serving, for those being served and through the example we are setting for others. Get your small group together and come join us as we make a difference in our city.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR SERVE DAY PROJECTS!
This year in addition to our regular service projects, we’d like to focus on serving our healthcare workers and first responders who’ve taken such great care of our community in response to the coronavirus pandemic. If you know of an opportunity where we can serve or you’d like to lead a service project, please email .

Thanks for helping us love people well in our city!
