A message from our pastor.
Welcome from our Lead Pastor
As the new lead pastor at Heritage United Methodist Church, I can tell you what I have learned about this community of faith in a short time.
Heritage United Methodist Church is a beautiful place with a gorgeous sanctuary, a preschool, a gymnasium, social hall, memorial garden, and even outdoor fields and a walking trail. This wonderful facility and space is used both by church members and community organizations.
But the beauty of Heritage is really in the people gathered here. This welcoming community of faith seeks to walk with you in your faith journey as a beloved child of God. Members of this congregation are multi-generational and range in age from infant to octogenarians, from children to young adults, from teens to middle-aged. People gathered here come from a variety of backgrounds, contexts, and vocations. Yet, in our diversity is a common passion for our Christian mission of feeding people and changing lives.
People are fed physically through our many mission opportunities; and people are fed spiritually in small-group learning, fellowship events, and worship experiences. Lives are changed as people experience the grace of God and the mercy and love of all God’s people.
No matter where you are on your faith journey, Heritage United Methodist is a place where you can be fed, join in feeding others and have your life changed by the grace of God.
I would love to have you join us!
Grace and Peace,
Reverend Amy Beth Coleman
Heritage United Methodist Church was founded on April 28, 1985 from the merger of Memorial United Methodist Church and Brookville United Methodist Church. The name Heritage was chosen to represent each congregation’s history which encompassed 125 years. By the end of July, 1985, the property on Leesville Road and a new parsonage had been purchased. The ground breaking service was held on November 16, 1986 and construction began a short time afterward. With great joy and thanksgiving the first worship service was held in the new sanctuary on June 5, 1988.
We exist to glorify God,
to make disciples for Jesus Christ,
and to send disciples according to their call.
