  5. Important …..When giving to the LaPalma Ministry, it is important that the memo line on checks reads “LaPalma Mission” or “LaPalma trip” only. Placing a person’s name on the memo line may cause a problem with IRS if you are ever unlucky enough to be audited.  It is the policy of Heartland to apply any mission trip donation toward the cost of anyone going, so if one traveler receives more than enough it is applied first to anyone on the current trip needing funds and second to the cost of future mission trips.  Please be sure your friends and family are aware of this fact and advise them to attach a note with their donation (sticky notes are perfect).  If you send a fund-raising letter, please include this explanation within the letter.
  6. Volunteers are always needed to help with Sound and Media on Sunday mornings or to get the media ready for service.  If you are interested in this, contact Jerome Harris.
  7. E-giving has come to Heartland. Set up an account at our website,, or scan the QR Code.   Instructions can be found at Your bank statement will show the payee as “wigheart”. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Yolanda Giboney.
