Heritage responds to Christ’s call to be light in a dark world by bringing faith, hope and love to all we meet.
“Let us shelter at home and in the Lord” – Pastor Beth
Psalm 91 – “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. …”

Heritage Presbyterian Church is a community of Christians seeking to increase our understanding of God and to teach our children in the way they should go. We would love to meet you and your family and welcome you to become a part of our congregation, either as a visitor or a member.
Children and Family
When children are baptized in the Presbyterian Church, the Congregation vows to help the parents raise the child in the faith. At Heritage, we take this vow to heart! Children are an integral part of our congregation and are nurtured, supported and loved by all who attend out church.
Heritage takes an active role in our community and in the world. Through personal and joint ministries, we focus on eliminating hunger and homelessness.
We support the Outreach Community Center in Carol Stream, the Neighborhood Food Pantries, DuPage PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) and other local and global services for the most vulnerable.

Heritage is more than a church…it is a welcoming place, with warm, caring people…Heritage is family!
Through worship, Bible study, fellowship and community involvement, Heritage seeks to serve God by serving others. In order to serve, we praise Him, come to understand what God desires, and strengthen each other.
“Welcoming. Excellent preaching. Deep meaningful service. Great opportunity to grow in your faith in a warm, welcoming community.”
Bringing faith and hope
Light in a dark world
Heritage Presbyterian Church is a community of Christians seeking to increase our understanding and love of God and to teach our children in the way they should go. We would love to meet you and your family and welcome you to become a part of our congregation, either as a visitor or a member.
Our doors are open to anyone who desires to worship God and to learn more about His Son. Christ Jesus is the focus of our fellowship at Heritage. We gather to praise and glorify him as the center of our lives, and to learn from Scripture about what it means to be the people God created us to be.
The church is conveniently located in Carol Stream, 965 Kuhn Road, across the street from Glenbard North High School and just south of Lies Road. We are approximately one mile south of Army Trail Road and one mile west of Gary Avenue. Our worship service is at 10:00 am every Sunday. Sunday school and Christian education classes are also offered.
Heritage offers many opportunities for members to come together in worship, fellowship and service.
‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:34-40
Rev. M Elizabeth Wagner is the Pastor of Heritage Presbyterian Church.
Beth was born in St. Louis, Missouri. She graduated from Decatur (IL) MacArthur High School, Northern Illinois University and McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. She and her husband, Jim, have two grown children and two cats, Honey Bear and Sir Dusty Fancypant.
When she is not pastoring she loves to walk, cook, sew, knit, craft, and read, in no particular order. Her Kindle is always close at hand and contains a wide range of reading material, from deeply theological to rhyming kids’ books! Beth and Jim love to travel, camp (Beth has been to 48 states and nine countries) and the family is working on visiting all the National Parks. She is also honored to serve as one of the faculty for PC (USA) Art of Transitional Ministry Education several times a year.
Beth describes herself as an extrovert with a pastor’s heart, who loves to find out about people and very quickly falls in love with the congregations she serves. She finds beauty in a wide range of worship styles, and in creating a safe sacred space for all to tell their stories.
