July 5th Church Anniversary Event – view on Facebook

In the mid 1990’s, after Charlie Sharpe recommitted his life to the Lord, workers at the farm started getting saved almost right away. It wasn’t safe to climb in the cab of Charlie’s truck or sit down with him at coffee unless you wanted to hear about Jesus.

By 1995, all those new converts needed a local church to grow in, so Charlie and Laurie started praying for a pastor. They were looking for someone who could lead Heartland Community Church in a converted machine shed at the farm. They were shocked to discover that God had Charlie Sharpe in mind.

The congregation continued to grow and it was soon time for a new location. The new Heartland Christian Academy school building was just the right place. Services were held there in the gymnasium up until July of 2019 when we moved into the new sanctuary adjoining the school.

We hope you’ll save the date for a special anniversary church service on the evening of July 5th as we celebrate two milestones — 25 years together as a congregation, and heart about more lives restored at a Heartland Recovery Program graduation.

  • Please bring your own chair. There is plenty of room on the east lawn for social distancing, and the building provides a lot of shade by 7:30pm. We ask everyone to abide by local health department guidelines as we gather. Maintain 6′ distance with those not of your own household, observe good hand washing/hygiene, and do not attend if you are feeling ill.
  • The church building will be open for walk-through tours at 7pm
  • An outdoor service begins at 7:30pm, followed by cupcakes and a fireworks display at 9:15pm.
  • Livestream is available for those unable to attend:
    Our website: http://live.hland.tv/

    Facebook Live: https://www.facebook.com/hland.tv/
  • Our GPS Kids will be doing a fundraiser, selling ice cream novelty items, bottled water, and sparkling ice patriot lemonades

We will observe the state and county guidelines in place when the time comes for this event.

We’re looking forward to a special Easter Sunrise Drive-In Service this year on Sunday, 6:30am at the Ozark Lodge. (Rain or shine!)


They say “it’s always darkest before the dawn.” How true that must have been on that first Easter morning as the disciples were in shock from the events of the week. Join us as we welcome the day as a church family with worship and a short word from Pastor Kris and are reminded “Christ is risen!” 
DETAILS: Let’s keep this a safe way to “go to” something, taking the current situation seriously. Please keep the following guidelines in mind when attending:

  • Parking attendants will point you in the right direction when you arrive at the Ozark Lodge.
  • After parking, tune in to the radio station (to be announced) at the event and enjoy the service!
  • Please stay in your vehicle at all times, with windows rolled up.


Easter can’t be cancelled, but it will look different this year. Join us for an online service at 10:00am with worship and a message from Pastor Kris. Connect easily using one of these ways:

What will dressing in your Easter best look like this year? For those of you joining us via Facebook, we’d love to see your “living room selfies” in the comments Sunday morning. 😉


Communion will be the highlight of our online church service the week AFTER Easter. Whether you have juice and bread or simply water and saltines, gather your household together for an online church service of worship, a message from our pastor, and taking communion.
