THE HARVEST IS PLENTIFUL, BUT THE WORKERS ARE FEW. ASK THE LORD OF THE HARVEST, THEREFORE, TO SEND OUT WORKERS INTO HIS HARVEST FIELD

​WELCOME TO THE NALC HEARTLAND MISSION DISTRICT

The Heartland Mission District is comprised of 12 churches, 1 mission start church, and 1 Lutheran Ministry spread across the Kentucky – Indiana  region. We also support 2 foreign ministries.

WHAT’S HAPPENING

NALC BISHOP DAN SELBO VISITS HMD CONVOCATION

NALC Bishop Dan Selbo was our special guest at the 2020 Heartland Mission District Convocation held on October 10 at Bethel Lutheran Church in Noblesville, IN. Bishop Dan gave us an update on what is happening in the North American Lutheran Church.  He held a Q&A Forum, visited with the clergy and lay members at the Convocation, and preached on the Convocation’s theme of “Fresh Winds of the Spirit” from John 3:8. 

Also joining us from the NALC was Mary Bates, Disaster Response Coordinator. Mary talked about some of the recent Disaster Response endeavors. Churches of the Heartland Mission District had brought supplies to assemble 50 disaster buckets, which were put together by the youth present at the Convocation and blessed at the closing Worship Service. Many thanks to all who participated in this service project!
