Heritage Church is a bible-based, non-denominational Christian church. Each week you’ll experience an exciting message that you can apply to your life, awesome music, great coffee, and an amazing kid’s area. Wondering how it all began? See the history below.
Heritage Church was started by several residents from our community who expressed an interest in establishing a church in Macomb Twp. The church began serving our community on January 22, 2000.
During the first year, the attendance averaged 111 people. We are currently averaging around 2,000 people each week in our weekend services. We currently have three campuses: Heritage Sterling Heights, Heritage Imlay City, and Hope Church (Arabic speaking campus). Although we have grown, there are many aspects of Heritage that give it an intimate feeling. This helps keep us “small” even when it seems we are quite large.
For 10 years, Heritage was a portable church that set-up and tore-down what grew to be 4 semi-truck loads of equipment. We found a much more permanent home for our Sterling Heights campus in the former AMC Sterling 10 Movie Theater on Schoenherr Rd. across from Lakeside Mall. After months of renovations we celebrated the Sterling Heights Grand Opening on October 3rd, 2010.
In June of 2011, Discover Church of Utica, MI joined Heritage and became a part of the family in order for us all to be “Better Together.” Discover Church had a storied history but was most recently meeting at the Eisenhower Performing Arts Center. With Discover transitioning to Heritage Church, we have had great additions to our staff as well as a great number of people who are willing to serve the community around us.
We later opened two additional campuses to make an even greater impact in the community. We celebrated the Grand Opening of our Imlay City Campus (in the former Cinema 3 Movie Theater) in September 2013 and our Hope Church Campus in December 2014.
Wow! things definitely have changed over the past 15 years and we look forward to what the next 15 years have in store for us.
