Heritage Sunday occurs each year in May. It is a time to remember our United Methodist heritage ... the people, events, and stirrings of God's will that have brought us to this point in history.
| In 2004, Heritage Sunday observance changed from around April 23 (the day
in 1968 when The United Methodist Church was created by the union of The
Evangelical United Brethren Church and The Methodist Church) to a date closer to May 24 (the date of Wesley's experience at Aldersgate). Heritage Sunday calls
the Church to remember the past by committing itself to the continuing
call of God.
