Groups happen in 3, two-month sessions throughout the year

Session 1: October – November
Session 2: January – February
Session 3: April – May

Groups at Heartland are designed to meet in homes once a week, to discuss the previous weekend’s teaching and how best to apply it to our lives. Groups come together to get to know each other, support and care for each other, and pray for one another.

For more information on how to start OR join a group, email and/or check out our Growth Groups page (click button below) for all the details.

If, at any point, you are looking to join a group mid-session or don’t know anyone to start a group with (yet), we have a “Connection Group” that meets at Beans N Cream Bakehouse (1120 W. Main) in Sun Prairie on Tuesday Nights from 6:30pm– 7:30pm with Lead Pastors, Jon and Ashley McNary.

Groups Connection will meet during the same two-month sessions listed above, so come to meet people and drink free coffee! You can sign-up at any point during the session- click below to register!

Why Groups at Heartland?

We, as a species, are designed to experience life with others. We need other people in our life to encourage us, challenge us, hold us up when life is difficult, celebrate with us when life is good, tell us when we have spinach in our teeth, and much more.

So, we deeply value community at Heartland. Obviously there is a great deal of community that happens every weekend at Heartland before, during, and after each service, but as we say a lot around here:

“Community happens better in circles than in rows.”

Meaning: our desire is that every person experiences true community- authentic relationships during the week, in their every-day life, not just on a weekend at church. So- join a group and experience true community!
