Donation Match

As of this past weekend, we have officially surpassed our goal of a $20,000 match campaign! For the eighth year running, Jill and Duke Thomas have graciously made this matching pledge to support our mission to respond to God’s commandment to love one another. Heart to Heart began serving the community in 1986, and still exists today thanks to the foundation laid by its task force and early leaders, including Jill. We are eternally grateful for the Thomas family’s ongoing support of our mission.

Sponsors Needed

Heart to Heart has been overwhelmed with calls requesting sponsorship for Christmas gifts. About 35 families still need sponsors. Please consider sponsoring one or more families through the purchase of Christmas gifts. We encourage group sponsorships. For instance, your guild, book club, or department at work can combine resources to provide support for an entire family. If you can sponsor a family, please email Kitty Rohrer with your contact details. More details about how the program operates are available at

Volunteer Gifts

There is no way we could possibly show our appreciation enough for all the time, love and effort you put into volunteering. However, in an attempt to provide a token of appreciation, we have a Christmas gift for each of our volunteers. I encourage you to stop by First Community South and take a gift from under the tree in the Crane Welcome Center. Pat Porterfield and Janey Ledman have been wrapping gifts over the past couple weeks!

Missions Workday

In January, I have planned for another Mission Workday which will require a good amount of physical labor and focus primarily on cleaning up the spaces we use among all ministries throughout the three buildings at First Community South. This will take place on MLK Day, January 16, as we planned to be closed.

And what does the Lord
require of you
But to do justice,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly
with your God?
Micah 6:8 NKJ

Our mission at Heart to Heart is to respond to God’s commandment to love one another.
Our vision of Heart to Heart is to model God’s love by:
Cultivating a loving community
Honoring individual gifts
Feeding bodies and souls
…and seeing everyone as a child of God
