Engaging in meaningful mission together is a way to tangibly become the hands and feet of Christ in the world..
Entities with whom we have an ongoing outreach:
COLLABORATIVE FOSTER CARE PROGRAM OF JEFFERSON, ARAPAHOE, & DOUGLAS COUNTIES
We work to support foster families throughout the community through our Foster Children's Clothing Closet which provides free kids' clothes to foster families. We also support school supply drives and adoption celebration baskets for foster families. In non-COVID times, we have provided Kids' Night Out activities for foster children so that their foster families can have a few hours of respite.
We support foster children at the Shiloh House with Christmas gifts each year.
LOAVES & FISHES CHURCH COALITION WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Heritage UMC is one of a dozen or so churches who have banded together to form the Loaves & Fishes coalition. Each year this group is responsible to fund and build a new home in the Denver-metro area thru Habitat for Humanity. Workers age 16 or older are invited to get involved in the hands-on work of construction, painting, landscaping, etc., to make a house a home for a deserving family who contribute lots of their own sweat-equity.

Heritage UMC is one of several churches that serve in the church network known as Love INC Littleton. This group serves as a clearing house for meeting various needs of local families by tapping into a variety of resources available thru the church network. Click here to find out more.
LOCAL, REGIONAL, & WORLD OUTREACH

Recent mission trips have included outings to a low-income women's shelter in Denver, a homeless shelter in southern Colorado, a depot in Utah for gathering/sorting emergency relief supplies for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief), and a village in Honduras to build houses for the poor.
