Announcements

Heritage Game Day, our monthly fellowship of food and card/board games, will be held in the fellowship hall on Thursday, November 3, at 11:30 AM. The hosts will provide the main dish; please bring sides and/or dessert to share. Invite your friends!

Our HERITAGE Home Groups are currently studying the book Love Does by Bob Goff. We will not meet during the weeks of our quarterly church business meeting (Nov. 16) or Thanksgiving. If you're not part of a Home Group already, Talk to Matt Sapp about joining one. We'd love to have you!

On Wednesday evenings at 6:30 PM, we invite you to join us for a music-filled worship experience called REST. Each service will provide you with the opportunity to pray quietly in several ways - or just REST - and conclude with Communion at 7:00. Read more about REST here. (We will not hold REST services on November 16 or 23.)

Several Waleska-area churches will hold the annual Community Thanksgiving Service at 6:00 PM on Sunday, November 13, at Shoal Creek Baptist Church (4967 Fincher Road). Ted Goshom, Minister to Students at Reinhardt University, will give the message. All are invited to attend and to bring a dessert to share at the reception following the service.

Our final church business meeting of the year will be on Wednesday, November 16, at 6:00 PM. Supper will be served at 5:30. (Make your supper reservations at church on Sunday, November 13, or call/email the church office by 5:00 PM that Monday.) The Finance Committee will present the 2017 budget proposal, and the office will give a presentation on the online giving process. We will not have our usual noontime Home Group or REST service that day.

Join our HERITAGE Home Groups in a Thanksgiving Day of Service on Saturday, November 19! We will prepare and distribute Thanksgiving meals to some of our Summer Lunch families. This is a great way to keep in touch with families we minister to each summer and a great way to help our community become more like God's kingdom. We'll meet at the church at 10:00 AM to prepare meals, and plan to go out for delivery by 11:00.

Every week, HERITAGE fills backpacks full of food for children at Hasty Elementary who might otherwise go hungry on weekends. Thanks to donations from MUST Ministries and another local church, we have plenty of fruit snacks, salty snacks, and breakfast foods right now. We are particularly in need of Hormel "Compleats," pasta such as macaroni and cheese and Ramen noodles, and small cans of vegetables, meat, soup, and pasta. Monetary donations are also appreciated. Thank you for helping us love on these precious children!

HERITAGE is on the radio! Our Sunday messages are now being broadcast on WLJA 101.1 FM each Sunday evening at 5:15 PM. Tune in and tell your friends!
