Announcements

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 boxed macaroni and cheese, canned pasta (like Spaghetti-Os), small cans of vegetables, Ramen noodles, 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, October 1, at 11:30 AM. The hosts will provide ham; please bring sides and dessert. Invite a friend!

Our children ages birth-11 and their families are invited to join us for a fun afternoon at Yahoo Farm in Jasper. We'll meet at the farm after worship on Sunday, October 4. Bring your own picnic lunch or purchase a meal there for $4-5 (hot dog or BBQ sandwich, chips, drink). We'll go on hayride, explore the corn maze, and see the animals and the butterfly garden. Children under 8 can enjoy a free pumpkin hunt. Other activities, such as the corn cannon and pony rides, are individually priced. Visit www.yahoofarm.com for more information about the farm. 

The whole church family is invited to celebrate the upcoming Dover-Johnston wedding with a luncheon after worship on Sunday, October 11. The Family Life Team will serve Italian food; let the church know if you'd like to help out by bringing a dessert. The couple requests no gifts. Instead, bring an anniversary card with your best marriage advice for them to open each year on their anniversary.

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, October 20. All are welcome!

You have three opportunities to travel with the Adventure Club over the next few months! The Blue Ridge Scenic Train trip is Thursday, October 22. We will leave from the church at 9:00 AM. We have purchased tickets and will distribute them that day. Lunch will be your choice in McCaysville. The entire trip will take about 6-7 hours. Remember to check the weather forecast and dress accordingly - North Georgia can be cold in mid-October! On Thursday, November 12, we will check out the "Searching for the Queen of Sheba" exhibit at the Fernbank Museum and have lunch at Mary Mac's in Atlanta. Please sign up (on the clipboard at church or contact the church office). More information will be available as the date draws closer. And last but not least, we'll have a Christmas luncheon at the Swan House in Atlanta on Monday, December 14. Please sign up (on the clipboard at church or contact the church office) as soon as possible so that our reservation can be adjusted if necessary. All are welcome to join us on our adventures!
