Change for a Dollar: The Ravines & Welsh Elementary School

Every weekend the people of Heartland drop a dollar or more into the Change for a Dollar water bottles located throughout the mall. 100% of the donations we receive go right back out to the community, or sometimes around the world.

Because of your generosity, we raised $1,010.00 last weekend! That’s incredible! Those funds have been given to two great organizations.

The Ravines

The Ravines is a retreat center for marriages in crisis—where marriage struggles have become too much to bear. The Ravines has a Christ-centered, intensive counseling program that helps couples pick up the pieces of their broken marriage, and ultimately create a deeper and closer relationship. Heartland has a strong relationship with The Ravines and we have seen the life change happen first-hand. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with them with Change for a Dollar this week to help bring that life change to more couples every year.

Welsh Elementary School

Welsh Elementary School’s “Books for a Buck” program purchases books for the students with the goal of putting a new or gently used book in the hands of all of their 350 students. Welsh’s belief statement says:

At Welsh School, we are respectful when we use kind words, we are responsible when we work hard, and we are safe when we control ourselves.

Thank you for partnering with these two great organizations. Keep dropping your loose change in the buckets every weekend and we’ll keep making change together!

    From The Ravines:
    Thank you, Heartland Church, for sharing your “Change for a Dollar” with this ministry serving marriages in crisis and in stress. The year 2016 saw a 50 percent increase in the number of couples we were able to serve. We thank our Lord for that increase – that means the 173 children from these families now have the opportunity of being raised in households with a stronger, healthier view of marriage.

    When our numbers increase, so then do our expenses (food, cleaning, etc). So your gift is very timely. Please continue to pray for the ministry of The Ravines and for the marriages in your church – that God will be glorified in all. Thank you again.
