As sons, daughters, moms, dads, husbands, wives, grandmas and grandpas we want strong and healthy connections with God and with one another.  We want our marriages and families to be all that they can be.


What better gift can we give our children than two parents with a deep unconditional love for one another who love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength?  We want to see our children and students grow up with the hope, drive and skills they need to have an incredible marriage that lasts a lifetime.


With this in mind we are actively developing a Marriage and Family Ministry that brings hope and help to marriages and families in both our church and community.  Opportunities to strengthen your family at Heartland, a Church Connected include:


  • Sunday Gatherings – Annual teaching series on family with practical and encouraging messages from God’s Word.
  • Small Groups –   Yearly opportunities to connect with others in a caring and loving environment with a focus on marriage and/or family.
  • Weekend Getaways - Opportunities for couples to getaway and reconnect, re-establish the foundation and rekindle romance.  (In Connection with FamilyLife Canada)
  • Seminars, Workshops and Electives on Marriage and/or family
  • Marriage Mentoring – We have trained couples who have a heart for others, a willingness to listen and a willingness to share from their own life story that meet with other couples for simple helpful conversations.  If you'd like a  marriage mentor to help you and your spouse, click here to sign-up.
  •  Social events - These events are an opportunity for families to connect with each other and have fun together. We believe that families who have fun together stay together.

WEDNESDAYS at 6:30 PM (February 7 - March 28)


The Together for Good small group provides insights and research to help couples understand more fully what is really going on in our marriage relationships, focusing on the areas of communication, conflict, sex and spirituality.  Each session will do more than inform, it will provide helpful tools to move past the differences and drift to a place of greater closeness and trust.  Each session also prioritizes times for couples to process the information together and consider how to apply it in their relationship.


Your small group meetings led by Mike & Irene Rietta and Damion & Kyla Murray will included DVD lessons with Neil and Sharol Josephson, and the encouragement that comes with meeting in a small group!


Sign-up in the church foyer or by contact Pastor Aaron at or 905-568-4696.

Most marriages don't need an overhaul, just regular tune-ups.  Invite a trained and equipped Marriage Mentor into your journey.


Why Be Mentored? Are you and your spouse:

· Wanting more from your marriage?

· Drifting apart?

· Feeling stuck?

· Doing well but eager to strengthen your relationship?

· Looking for marriage role models?

· Willing to invest 90 minutes a month in your marriage?


 A mentor can help.  The Marriage Mentoring Initiative pairs you with an older couple who wants to listen and invest in your lives and is strictly confidential.  Over the course of a year they'll guide you through 14 conversations crucial for a healthy marriage.  This isn't crisis counseling, it's an opportunity to share your story and learn from the life experience of another couple.
