Serve at Heartland
- We ask that everyone at Heartland serve in at least 1 of 3 areas: First Impressions, Next Generation, Worship/Tech.

- First Impressions:
- Greeters position themselves in the parking lot, by entrance doors, or at the Welcome Center to welcome guests and help guests find their way at Heartland. Greeters serve before and after our Small Groups, Worship Gathering, and other special occasions/events.
- Ushers serve during the worship gathering by helping take up offerings and assisting others in seating.
- Security workers patrol the grounds during church services and activities, monitoring the parking lot and entrances.
- Next Generation
- Nursery Workers: Heartland has a baby room and a toddler room that provides childcare on Sunday Mornings and Sunday Nights, along with other special occasions. Workers care for infants and toddlers by holding them, playing with them, changing diapers and potty breaks, etc. Workers serve on a weekly rotation, ideally serving once a month. We also strive to have multiple workers in each room, so we can always use more workers.
- Children’s Sunday School Helpers: S.S. helpers assist S.S. teachers by helping the kids focus on lessons and activities, assisting in potty breaks, etc. S.S. helpers serve on a monthly rotation, where they spend a month of Sundays in the classroom, ideally only serving a few months a year.
- Children’s Church Helpers: During the sermon portion of our worship gathering, kids (ages 4-10) are dismissed to children’s church. Helpers assist the teachers by helping the kids focus on lessons and activities, assisting in potty breaks, etc. Helpers serve on a weekly rotation, ideally serving once a month.

We refer to giving at Heartland as stewardship, which is taking care of something that belongs to another. We rightly see as everything belonging to God. Anything we have in our lives is because of God’s goodness and grace, and He has entrusted it to us as stewards to use for His purposes and mission. One of God’s purposes is to provide for our families (1 Tim. 5:8), but it’s also to provide for His church as the church seeks to fulfill the Great Commission. We believe that tithing is part of being a good steward. Tithe means tenth, and we see in scripture where God instructs His people to bring the tithe to the people doing His work. We also see God calling us to radical generosity, where we give beyond the tithe to special offerings and in other ways. 2 Corinthians 9:7 is an important scripture for stewardship, “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” The giving that God desires and delights in is where we give freely and gladly because we trust God and we want to be a part of His Kingdom’s work.
