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.

    “197 and Counting”

    Sunday, May 19, 2024, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton leads this worship service.

    This congregation was founded in the spring of 1827. As we look ahead to the last three years of our second century of existence (what?!?), we can be thoughtful and intentional in our plans and our mission. What would we like to be able to celebrate when we gather for our big bicentennial party?

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

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.
