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.

A Christmas Angel Thank You
from the Missions Team
Special thanks to everyone for your generosity this Christmas season. We were able to donate over $3,200 worth of toys, balls, board games, small kitchen appliances, coats, and food to our community partners. What a joy is it to share these gifts and our blessings with those in need in our community. Thank you for your continued support of our Missions team projects and community partners.
