From the Stewardship Team
A note of appreciation to the Heritage congregation:
In our busy moments, we might be inclined to think of stewardship as “that thing the Stewardship Committee does each fall as the church prepares for a new year”. But, of course it’s much more than that. Stewardship in the United Methodist Church and specifically in the Heritage United Methodist Church is an on-going, year round venture involving our members, leadership and volunteers. In other words, “It takes a congregation”, to paraphrase a popular book title.
Success is measured in many ways. From a stewardship perspective, our important indicators include a strong membership commitment of time and talents to the support of programs, mission projects and church operation. And, once again you have stepped forward to help take us in the direction charted by our church leadership. The pumpkin patch, food pantry, commodity support to Cross Lines, Christmas Angel Tree, Growing Futures and many others are among the visible evidence of your caring and giving nature. Thank you for all that you do.
Not as visible, but equally important are the faithful monetary contributions that grow our programs and church operation. Here, as well, you have led us toward success. During trying times, many of you have been able to continue your pledges and giving at previous levels and others have gone beyond their previous levels. We acknowledge and appreciate the prayerful thought and consideration each of you has devoted to these personal decisions. Please accept our thanks as we jointly strive to honor our commitments to God.
Thank you, HUMC Stewardship Team

A Christmas Angel Thank You
