But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8

Street Ministry – Thursday Night
Are you looking for adventure to spice up your Christian walk?
Thursday evenings our Street Ministry teams venture into areas of the Cedar Valley to reach the lost, the broken, and the hungry to minister the love of Jesus.
We meet at the church at 6:00 p.m. and pray as a team. Then we go where God directs us. Experience God’s presence as we pray for people while we walk different neighborhoods in our community.
We are led by the Holy Spirit and go where He says to go. We welcome everyone, young, old, students and youth, even parents pushing little ones in strollers. We invite you to join us and you can step out as much as you desire. You are certainly welcome to join us just to “shadow” us or watch and ask questions. You won’t even need to talk to anyone we meet if you don’t want to. Come as you are, but come expectant. God will amaze you.
For more information contact Corey Peters at 319-215-6212.

This ministry was birthed initially out of an outreach that fed homeless women and their families from the various women’s shelters in the Cedar Valley at a meal we called The Banquet. Nearly a decade later, this ministry now transports over 50 people people weekly to Celebrate Recovery on Tuesday nights and to our gathering on Sunday morning. Our faithful team has a heart for those that would not otherwise be connected to our Vineyard family.
If you are without transportation and desire to be a part of Celebrate Recovery and/or attend our Sunday gathering, please call us at 319-266-4673.
If you would like to be involved in this ministry as a driver, please sign up here.

In 1995, Pastor Fred and Debbie Collum moved to Mazatlan, taking a small team of nationals with them. They held a twenty-one day tent crusade and a few months later, started Sunday services in a five-star hotel in Mazatlan’s “Golden Zone”. Since then, the Golden Zone church has planted two other churches in colonias (communities) in Mazatlan. As of April 2014, there are 14 children’s feeding centers and a children’s scholarship program that sponsors and registers children for school who have never attended before (nearly 400 kids were sponsored in 2014). Sixteen thousand bags of groceries were given to the poor. The church also operates a mobile kitchen that has fed thousands of children and adults in Mazatlan’s poorest colonias; and plans are being made for starting a school for children whose parents are “dump scroungers.” The church now has land in other colonias for future church plants in Mazatlan.
Heartland Vineyard is currently working with Fred to grow his ministry through financial support and child sponsorships.
Through the leadership of Carol Laurie, HVC is also beginning to send team to Puerto Vallarta. In January of 2018, we sent our first team to support the work in this city.
Puerto Vallarta is located in the pacific coast of Mexico; has around 250000 people and it’s only 4.5 hour drive from Guadalajara City, the second largest city in Mexico.
La Viña started here as a Children´s outreach in 2006 and then reached out to several families and adults that conformed the first congregation known as “Viña La Mesa del Rey” – The King´s Table.
A couple of years later, in 2008, a new kid’s outreach was started in another neighborhood and that is now a church plant in progress called “Viña La Cosecha” – Harvest, which is now getting ready to be released a church as of January 2018 and hosts and operates a Dental and Medical clinic to serve the most needed by offering basic dental and medical attention, including meds, provided by volunteers.
Two other locations are now in progress and already have weekly outreaches, which are supported and lead by members of the local church.
Our “Remember the Poor” offering received every Sunday, helps us as a church keep our hearts and minds on those in need. Below are the initiatives given to over the course of a year through this special above and beyond offering…
