Heritage will host the American Patriot Winds ensemble for a lively concert of patriotic music on Sunday, July 1, at 7:00 PM. We'll have an ice cream social in the fellowship hall following the concert. This is our fourth year hosting this FREE event that has proven to be great fun for the whole community! Help us spread the word by inviting your friends and neighbors. Ice cream donations (homemade or store-bought) can be put in the freezer downstairs any time between now and July 1. On the evening of the concert, we will also need donations of ice cream toppings and desserts that go well with ice cream (brownies, cookies, etc.).

Heritage Game Day, our monthly fellowship of food and card/board games, will be held in the fellowship hall on Thursday, July 5, at 11:30 AM. The hosts will provide hot dogs, buns, and drinks; please bring condiments, sides and/or dessert to share. All are welcome!

We love our monthly Game Days so much that we've decided to do them twice a month! We will now host "Game Day Lite" on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Instead of a pot luck lunch, though, we'll bring our own bag lunches. This month's Game Day Lite will be on Thursday, July 19, at 11:30 AM.

The youth will host a spaghetti luncheon and variety show after worship on Sunday, July 8, to raise money for their upcoming trip to PASSPORT Camp in Greensboro, NC. Come support our youth and enjoy the show!

Summer Lunch is here! Heritage is once again a distribution site for MUST Ministries' Summer Lunch Program. We meet in the fellowship hall at 9:00 AM every weekday, May 29-July 27, to pack, organize, and distribute hundreds of bag lunches to local children. Volunteers and donations are much appreciated!

We are celebrating summer with a series of "Feasts" - evenings when we meet at local restaurants for food and fellowship. Our July Feasts will be Tuesday, July 10, at O'Charlie's (1409 Riverstone Parkway), and Tuesday, July 24, at Williamson Bros. Bar-B-Q (1600 Marietta Highway). Meet us there at 6:30 PM.  

The Waleska Farmers' Market will have a new location this year - the parking lot at Heritage Fellowship! The Market will be open every Thursday, May 31-November 1, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Stop by for fresh produce, baked goods, food trucks, and more!

Coming soon! In August, we will have a multi-week Wednesday series on the global mission initiatives being carried out by our denominational partner, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. We'll have several special speakers who have seen firsthand the impact of CBF's Offering for Global Missions, which Heritage supports annually. Come hear what God is doing through willing CBF field personnel all over the world! Dates and times will be announced soon.

Christmas already?! Yes, we are already thinking ahead to the Advent season and the Advent booklet for 2018. The theme this year will be "My Favorite Christmas Memory." We'll choose and edit 24 entries and include them in this year's booklet. So think about Christmases past, write down (or email) your memories, and give your recollections to Justin, Julie, or Kay no later than September 30.
