Heritage Sunday 2017
May 21, 2017: "Milestones" --- Calling Local Churches to Discover and Celebrate Their History.

HERITAGE SUNDAY shall be observed on Aldersgate Day (May 24) or the Sunday preceding that date (2012 Book of Discipline, par. 264.1). This year the date falls on May 21, 2017.  The General Commission on Archives and History will be posting resources on this website which will help you discover and celebrate great moments in your local church's history.  Please bookmark this page so you may be the first access those materials starting on March 15th.

If your church is looking ahead for Heritage Sunday themes for the rest of the quadrennium, you can look forward to:

2018 - "50 Years of the United Methodist Church"
2019 - "150 Years of United Methodist Women"
2020 - "200 Years of the General Board of Global Ministries"
