Social Media This Week

Here’s what you may have missed this week! To see regular updates, follow us on

SOUPerbowl Sunday February 11

Heart to Heart is holding a soup drive during all worship services Sunday! Look for the volunteer quarterbacks at collection sites outside at both locations to drop off your donations of shelf-stable soup. We especially appreciate donations of hearty soups that serve as a whole meal, such as: beef vegetable, chicken and rice, Italian wedding, etc. For a $5 donation (cash or check), you can become the proud owner of a one-of-a-kind soup bowl or mug decorated by students at First Community Church in the Midweek Mission (K-8) and Crossroads (8-12) programs.

Holiday Closing

Mark your calendar! We will be closed on Monday, February 19 in observance of President’s Day. Click the image below for a complete list of 2024 closings.
