COVID-19 Update

Dear Siblings in Christ,

As the COVID-19 Pandemic expands and impacts our nation, our states, our cities and towns, and our communities, we want to provide you with many resources of information and support in navigating these unknown waters.

 In this time of the COVID-19 virus, Heartland Presbytery staff are following the Mayor’s Stay-at-Home order. The office is closed. For our meetings we will have set up zoom links for your meetings. If you need to get a hold of any of the staff, please call their extension. All voicemails left here will be forwarded to an email alert system and then forward to the appropriate staff person for reply. We will be checking our emails regularly. 

For more information and resources, visit our COVID-19 page for ongoing updated resources in ministry and support. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this difficult time.

Please know we are here for you, to support you.

Blessings and take care,

Dee Cooper, Brian Ellison, Sheri Fry, Michelle Jones, Melissa Scheffler
