"Let us not love with words or tongue,

but with actions and in truth."

(1 John 3:18)


COVID-19 has impacted all of us in significant and perhaps unimaginable ways. From social distancing to the forced closure of restaurants and businesses, our lives have been turned upside-down by this global pandemic. In response, theHeart wants to lead with love rather than shrink from fear. Listed below are numerous ways we can continue to serve and be served. Our hope and prayer are that we can be a beacon of hope in these times of uncertainty and struggle.

how it works


Volunteer for, give to, or use the services listed below. Each represents a tangible effort to help support people across the High Country.


Perhaps you or your family is in need of assistance? If so, please fill out this simple form. Someone from theHeart will be in contact with you.


In every way possible, we want to be a church family that puts our love into action by embracing people in their time of need. It's that simple.
