Announcements

Poinsettias are coming! Every year, we decorate our sanctuary with poinsettias during Advent. Poinsettias are $7 each. Order forms are available in the sanctuary foyer and in the Fellowship Hall, or contact the church office to place an order.

The Christmas tree in the sanctuary foyer is decorated with the wishes and needs of local children. Help give them a merry Christmas by taking an ornament and fulfilling the request written on it. Return your gift(s) to the church by Sunday, December 6.

HERITAGE provides backpacks full of food for children at Hasty Elementary School who might otherwise go hungry on weekends. Each backpack contains enough food for two breakfasts, two lunches, three dinners, and snacks. We are always grateful for donations of food or money to keep this ministry going. We are currently in particular need of small cans of vegetables, canned pasta (like Spaghetti-Os), soup, and Hormel "Compleats." We cannot take glass containers or juice boxes. Look for collection bins in the Fellowship Hall.

Heritage Game Day will be held in the Fellowship Hall on Thursday, November 5, at 11:30 AM. We'll have pizza; please bring sides and/or dessert to share. Invite a friend!

Dr. Kina Mallard, President of Reinhardt University, will be our guest preacher on Sunday, November 15. Men of Hardt, a student musical ensemble, will provide our special music that morning.

A Community Thanksgiving Service will be held at First Baptist Waleska (10657 Fincher Rd, Waleska) at 6:00 PM on Sunday, November 15. Our own Matt Sapp will be preaching! If you are able, please bring a dessert to share in a time of fellowship following the service.

Goodfellas and Laughin' Ladies are our monthly fellowship gatherings for any "fellas" and ladies who'd like to enjoy each other's company around the breakfast table. We meet at Cracker Barrel at 9:00 AM on the third Tuesday of each month. The next gathering will be on Tuesday, November 17. All are welcome!

The whole church family is invited to celebrate the upcoming Huston-Collett wedding with a luncheon after worship on Sunday, November 29. Please bring your favorite finger food to share. The theme is "A Few of Our Favorite Things." As the happy couple begins their life together during the most wonderful time of the year, we will shower them with Christmas decorations.  

Our children ages birth through eleven are invited to our Christmas Craft Party from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday, December 12. We'll make several crafts to keep or to give as gifts, have pizza for lunch, and have lots of fun! Parents & grandparents, this is your chance to get some holiday preparations or shopping done without the kids! Please RSVP to the church office by Monday, November 30. 

The "Swingles" will have their annual Christmas party at the home of M. Cline on Saturday, December 12, at 12:00 PM. Mark your calendars now!
