HERITAGE will present "Keyboards at Christmas: A Community Christmas Concert" on Sunday, December 6, at 3:00 PM. This free concert will feature six local musicians playing favorite sacred and secular Christmas tunes on four pianos plus organ. Bring the whole family for a fun afternoon filled with Christmas cheer!

THANK YOU to all who have taken "ornaments" from our Angel Tree! If you haven't done so already, please bring your gift(s) to the church by Sunday, December 6. 

Pecans are here! The Missions Team is selling fresh Georgia pecans for $10 per pound. Get yours in the sanctuary foyer on Sunday mornings or stop by the church office during the week. All proceeds go toward our ongoing local mission endeavors.

Heritage Game Day will be held in the Fellowship Hall on Thursday, December 3, at 11:30 AM. The Jeanette Williams Class will provide the main dish; please bring sides and/or dessert to share. Invite a friend!

All 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 as soon as possible. 

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!

The Adventure Club will celebrate the Christmas season with a luncheon at the Swan Coach House in Atlanta on Monday, December 14. If you haven't signed up yet, let the church office know right away, and we'll add you to our reservation. It's sure to be a jolly time!

Goodfellas and Laughin' Ladies are our monthly fellowship gatherings for any "fellas" and ladies who 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, December 15. All are welcome!

Our annual Christmas Eve Candlelight Service will be on Thursday, December 24, at 6:00 PM. Celebrate the coming of the Christ Child with us in this meaningful time of worship.

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. Suggested food items are small cans of vegetables, canned pasta (like Spaghetti-Os), soup, Hormel "Compleats," fruit cups, salty snacks, and single-serving breakfast foods. We cannot take glass containers or juice boxes. Look for collection bins in the Fellowship Hall.
