Opportunities to Connect & Serve

Christ calls us to be in community with others, and to serve people.  There are many meaningful events, causes, and opportunities to serve our community in fellowship with the great people of Carol Stream and DuPage County.  Here are some of the many ways to connect & serve through Heritage!

  • NEW! Flower watering at Heritage - Joan is seeking volunteers to water the flowers in the planter by the Heritage sign and the flowers by the front door of the church.

Please email us to let us know if you'd like to help!
