The Heartwood Center

Heartwood Summer Ministries reaches out with Christ’s love into the community through three programs: Summer Food Distribution to children who rely on the free/reduced lunch program at school; Youth Mission Camp for Middle School and High School students that provides opportunities for leadership development, awareness of community needs, and service in the community.
