WHAT IS YOUR MISSION?
If you have found your way to this page, it isn’t an accident! You are here because God has written you into His story! We believe that God has a mission in the world and that he has allowed us to participate in that mission. Heritage Church’s mission is to help people find and follow God. If you are here, you are probably looking to discover what exactly your mission is! We are all about helping you discover your God-given mission. Chances are, there is a perfect opportunity for you to go beyond attending a service to serving the people outside the walls of the church. This page is meant to help you do just that!
LEARN MORE ABOUT OUTREACH
The church is an international and supernatural organization. But it is next to meaningless to talk about a church being "universal and invisible" if at the end of it all, it isn’t local! Whatever it means to be the church, it means to be the church right here where we are in our towns, neighborhoods, and backyards. This is why any attempt to find our God-given mission starts right here in our town. God is at work in Lake Zurich and we want to join Him with the awesome things He is doing!
Community Dinner | SIGN UP
One of the ways Heritage Church can show love and care for our community is by partnering with St. Francis De Sales Church in Lake Zurich to provide a community dinner. We would love for you to join us on Sunday, September 16 from 4:45PM - 7:45PM as we assist in providing and serving a meal to members of our community. If you are willing to make a dish and/or serve during the dinner, please sign up today!
Backpack Drive | Email Pastor Andrew with any questions
Heritage Church has once again partnered with Joanie's Closet, a District 95 Foundation that serves under-resourced students and their families. We will be providing backpacks and school supplies for over 100 students in our communities. A donation of $25 plus a backpack will ensure these students have everything they need when they start school!
There are two ways you can help:
1. Donate a backpack and $25
2. Just donate the backpack or the $25
Please make your checks out to Heritage Church and please note "Backpack" in the memo. Any and all donations may be brought to the Heritage Church Lake Zurich office.
Amazing Grace Share Center | SIGN UP
Sometimes we take it for granted that we have more than enough and we forget that even in a nice place like Lake Zurich there are people who struggle to make ends meet. Heritage Church has a food pantry to help ease the struggle. We know that we are not the final solution to the problems in Lake County, but we also know that every little bit helps! If you know somebody, out of work or in need of help, direct them to Heritage Lake Zurich for a little bit of relief on their grocery budget. If you would like to help in the Amazing Grace Share Center, sign up above!

The Great Commission calls Christians to go into the world to make disciples of all people. In the book of Acts, Jesus makes this call specific. We are to be eye-witnesses of what God has done for us “In Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” The idea is that we start where we are locally and then we proceed outward from there. The mission God is sending us on is bound by time and geography. We take Jesus to the tangible places where people are hurting in our world.
One of the gifts that Heritage Church has been given is the proximity to a world-class city. The Chicagoland Metro area has 9.5 million people who call our city home. This many people from hundreds of nations and a wide variety of socio-economic backgrounds bring with them the suffering and pain of the whole world. That suffering and pain allows us the opportunity to serve the least of these. Heritage Church seeks to partner with organizations who are making a difference not just somewhere far from here, but right here in our backyard. Check out these serving opportunities.
