Outreach and Mission

Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. 1 Peter 4:10

Heritage members are committed to service. We believe the church is a community called to participate in God's mission in and for the world. We celebrate God's activity in the projects we undertake and support activities and attitudes that emphasize making a difference in our community and the world.

We have joined with other Presbyterian Churches in the Matthew 25 Initiative. This calls us to be a church of action, where God’s love, justice and mercy are priorities. We rejoice how our re-energized faith unites us with all Presbyterians for a common and holy purpose: to do mission.

 

As part of our recently defined mission emphasis, we are highlighting mission in three areas: 

Water: for cleansing, health, and growth

Food: for the body, mind, and soul

Shelter: from the storm, home ownership, and safety

 

 

 

 

 

We will be partnering with the following organizations:

SHELTER

Ezekiel Community Development Corporation

Ezekiel CDC provides on-site training to minority firms to create affordable housing for city residents. In addition, Exekiel partners with Felmers Chaney minimum security correctional facility, allowing inmates to build skills and work experience needed for employment following release. We will be providing lunches for workers at meal sites and are exploring the abliity to help prepare and finish home sites.
 

Divine Intervention (Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church) 

Divine Intervention is an overnight winter prayer vigil/warming room in the Bay View area that operates from November through March. We will be collecting needed items during the season (coats, papers products, etc) and supporting our members who volunteer as hosts at the prayer/warming room site.
 

The Women's Center of Waukesha 

The Women’s Center provides free support and services to women and families affected by domestic violence, sexual assult and abuse. Services include emergency shelter for abused families, transitional living, counseling, child abuse prevention programming, legal advocacy and employment counseling. Heritage will be providing financial support and gifts for families at Christmas.
 

Milwaukee Rising (Common Ground)

Milwaukee Rising is a project of Common Ground working to restore the housing market in Milwaukee's Sherman Park neighborhood. This housing revitalization project is rehabilitating 100 foreclosed properties over four years and selling them to responsible owners. Heritage will be providing financial support.

 

The International Institute of Wisconsin

The International Institute facilitates services and programs for immigrants, refugees, and the community to assist with cooperation and integration into society. The Institute’s goal is to help individuals and families obtain self-sufficiency and promote multi-cultural understanding throughout the community. From Immigration and Social Services to Refugee Resettlement, the International Institute provides educational and social opportunities for new Americans. Our 2020 Shelter Service supported this organization.
