Love is the Spirit of this Church

At Heritage Church We:
~ Celebrate Life
~ Create Community
~ Seek Justice

We live in a world where some of us experience increasing isolation and little support for the growth of our children as whole human beings.

  • Coworkers and acquaintances we feel we can’t connect with deeply
  • Lack of ethical/moral foundation for our children
  • Religious organizations that place us outside the circle of the saved
  • Societal problems we cannot address alone
  • … Or other factors that too often seem to divide us.

Heritage Universalist Unitarian Church provides a place of real community, religious education for children and youth, and acceptance no matter your theological beliefs, national origin, sexuality, gender identity/expression, ability/disability, or other factors.

  • “Origins and Oscars and Other Such Stuff”

    “Origins and Oscars and Other Such Stuff”

    Sunday, March 3, 2024, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton leads this service.

    Did you know that, among his many other “past lives,” our Senior Minister once penned movie reviews for newspapers? This morning, a week before the presentation of the Oscars (which are, as always, surrounded by controversy this year), Rev. Bill will take a look at the powerful and provocative movie “Origin” — and probably drop in some other cinematic commentary as well. (It would be wonderful if you went to see “Origin” before today’s service.)

    At 10:30 a.m., join us in the sanctuary or click this Zoom link.

  • Potluck Lunch

    Second Sunday Potluck Lunch – March 10, 2024 in the Great Hall

    Have you ever heard of UU food? A HUUC (Heritage) youth once described it as “kale, quinoa, and tofu yuck!” Most attendees describe the HUUC potluck as delicious diversity with a side of community – spanning healthy/unique alternatives to comfort foods to hedonistic delights with a chance to break bread, literally, with old and new friends. HUUC serves that up to our community every second Sunday of the month. Vegans and carnivores alike are satisfied. Just bring something to share for the second Sunday of the month potluck lunch directly after service.

    You’re not a good cook, you say? Stop by the nearby Newtown UDF on the drive in to church and pick up something. That trick works even when you only remember it is Potluck Sunday on your way to church. Still, HUUC potlucks are like the biblical “loaves and fishes,” there is always enough to feed everyone whether you bring something or not. No judgment is served. The potluck is a great opportunity to meet fellow members and friends while enjoying what one member described as “the best meal of the month.” Come join the monthly feast!

Heritage is a Unitarian Universalist church that encourages each person to search for their own understanding of truth and meaning, and does not tell you what to believe. What holds us together is a sense of community and shared principles.
