The Heartland Community Lutheran Parish is a two-point parish in northern Minnesota's lake country, consisting of Bethany Lutheran Church in Nevis and First Lutheran Church in Akeley.

These two congregations, while both strong and active in the community, realized that by combining their resources they could accomplish so much more. In Heartland's case, together we can!

We are actively doing God's work with our hands in our community and around the world. The amazing talents of all members from both congregations join together to provide our parish choir, youth activities, the Heartland worship band, Sunday school, quilts to offer comfort, vacation bible school, and camp scholarships.

The parish also lends great support to the Akeley-Nevis Food Shelf, the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity, St. Joseph's hospice care, and the Living at Home program which brings senior citizens the support and tools necessary to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Heartland is also the home of United Churches of Akeley and Nevis (UCAN), and Yes You Can! These organizations offer emergency services and employment services to those in need.

Come visit Bethany Lutheran or First Lutheran for a joyous, faith-confirming worship experience!
