Community

Outreach

 

Helping others is an integral part of Heritage Church.  On the first and third Sundays of every month, our church collection is given to a chosen charitable organization.  And, we help out others by collecting needed items throughout the year.  Learn more about our Outreach programs and how you can help us help others.

Activities

 

We are an active and involved congregation, with many opportunities throughout the month to meet other congregants who share similar interests, or simply to socialize. There seems to be a group for just about everyone.

 

Social activities like Circle Suppers and Family Fun Nights are great venues for getting to know the other members of the church.  And, for music lovers, our Choir and Tone-Chime Choir let you indulge your musical side, whether as a participant or just a listener.

Fundraising

 

Our annual Auction, rummage sale, and book sale are just a few of our fun activities that also raise money for Heritage.  In addition, Heritage benefits financially from several programs that cost members nothing except a small amount of effort during everyday activities.  Kroger gift cards, GoodSearch, eBay, and Buy For Charity are just some of the ways that members can make money for Heritage without spending their own dollars.  Learn more about fundraising and how you can help.

Committees and Task Forces

 

Members and friends give their time and energy to help keep Heritage running smoothly—participating in everything from building maintenance to worship presentation, from education to long-range planning.  Click here for a list of the existing committees and task forces that help to make our church the wonderful place that it is, and to learn how you can become involved.

Church Membership

 

We consider ourselves to be One Church, Many Paths.  Just as there is no one “right way” to religious truth, in a Unitarian Universalist church, there is no one single path to membership.  Each person at Heritage Church is on a unique personal journey.  Some newcomers are ready to join the congregation after just a few visits; for others, the path to membership may take a year or more.  Still others may choose to become Contributing Friends, and not pursue membership at all.  Regardless of your path, you are welcome at Heritage Church.

 

If you’ve decided that you are ready to join our congregation, you can review more detailed information on becoming a member of Heritage Church in our About HUUC section.

Social Action

 

Heritage Universalist Unitarian Church is committed to supporting our shared UU principles through action and service within our congregation, the local community and the broader world.  To meet its mission, social action efforts are led by three active committees within the church:

 

1. The Social Action Committee—concentrating its activities on homelessness and poverty issues, and other general social action projects.

2. The Green Sanctuary Committee—undertaking environmental issues, including achieving Green Sanctuary certification under the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth.

3. Interweave—supporting UU gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, with outreach to the g/l/b/t community.

Imagining the Future of Heritage Universalist Unitarian Church

From November 21, 2010, through January 17, 2011, members of the Heritage UU Church Board of Trustees and Finance Committee conducted the survey “Imagining the Future of HUUC.”
