309 E. Main Street. Whiteland, IN 46184

Feel like you don’t fit neatly into church?

That’s why we’re here. Pastor Ross Stackhouse explains more in this short video.

No matter where you are, we have a place for you to start.

Meet Others

Ways for you to find connection or receive help that require no spiritual experience on your part.

Help Others

Get to know others while serving our neighbors and community. Help others while building relationships.

Grow in Faith

Discover what it means to grow as a Disciple of Jesus in groups with others who support you.

Want to meet people, but not ready to dive in spiritually?

The following groups and events are a great place to start! While some may occasionally have a light spiritual component, you don’t have to have any spiritual background to participate.

Get to Know You Dinners

Join us every other month at the Willard in Franklin for free pizza and wings and a chance to get to know you better. No agenda. No expectations. Just a laid-back place for us to learn about your experiences and hopes.

Recovery Church

We have a free catered meal at the church on Wednesdays at 6:30. This is a safe place for people to receive support and tools that make long-term recovery more possible. While one of our monthly meetings focuses on spiritual practices and is Jesus-centered, everyone is welcome no matter your beliefs.

Sunday Conversations

Sundays at 9:30 AM in-person and online. Our goal is to create an honest community atmosphere where you can be authentic with your questions and emotions and where, together, we can pay attention to the person of Jesus even if some of us are not sure what to make of him yet.

Basics

A bi-monthly gathering where, in our first meeting, you can share your story and questions about faith. Week two we will share about HeavenEarth Church in relation to your questions from week one.

Seasonal Neighborhood Events

A few times each year, we gather with community to have fun, eat great food, and serve our neighbors.

Meet new friends while making a difference for our neighbors

Sometimes, the easiest way to meet new people and build new friendships is to serve together. Here are some opportunities for you!

Garden Team

Help oversee our community garden, which runs from May to October. We offer free produce to our community and an opportunity for you to grow spiritually through gardening. 

Partner of the Month

At our monthly Partner Sunday, we interview one of our community partners about what they’re doing. This is a great time to learn about local services you can use, or find new places to volunteer.

HeavenEarth Spaces/Housing Coalition

We created HeavenEarth Spaces, a non-profit whose mission is to create affordable spaces for nonprofits and families. Spaces (our shorthand name) just launched a Housing Coalition, which anyone can join. Contact Pastor Ross for details.

Grow as a Disciple of Jesus with the support of our community.

If you are ready to dive in and learn more about what it means to follow Jesus, these opportunities are for you.

Sunday Conversations

Sundays at 9:30 AM in-person and online. Our goal is to create an honest community atmosphere where you can be authentic with your questions and emotions and where, together, we can pay attention to the person of Jesus even if some of us are not sure what to make of him yet.

Basics

A bi-monthly gathering where, in our first meeting, you can share your story and questions about faith. Week two we will share about HeavenEarth Church in relation to your questions from week one.

Why Baptism?

This is a quarterly one-off meeting where you can explore questions about baptism and why it’s such an important next step for people who are seeking Jesus. 

Learning Communities

Short-term groups where participants eat together and spend time with a specific essential of discipleship with Jesus. They can last anywhere from four weeks to as much as ten. Even though we have folks with diverse backgrounds and experiences in these groups, they truly work for anyone, because we encourage everyone to adopt the mindset of a beginner in these groups.

Tiny Churches

Another name for these might be “house churches.” They are groups of around 6-10 people who operate as a sort of church unto themselves. The purpose of these groups is to build a community of friends you can trust, care for, and root for, to get to know Jesus, and to practice his way together. This is a long-term commitment. For some people, this is their church.

Small Groups

Groups of people who have a similar function as a tiny church. The only difference is most members of these groups might be connected to HeavenEarth Church through the Sunday gatherings, whereas members of tiny churches may choose not to attend Sundays.
