Announcements

OUR STAFF EMAIL ADDRESSES HAVE CHANGED! All staff email addresses now end in @heritagecanton.com. Please make this change in your email address books.

Heritage Game Day, our monthly fellowship of food and card/board games, will be held in the Fellowship Hall on Thursday, March 3, at 11:30 AM. Please bring sides and/or dessert to share. Invite your friends!

All youth are invited to "Sundays at the Sapps'" this spring! We'll meet at Pastor Matt's house on most Sunday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 for snacks, games, Bible study, and fun!

Our youth will host a hot dog lunch and car wash immediately after worship on Sunday, March 13. They will accept donations to help cover the costs of their trips to March Mission Madness and PASSPORT Camp. Come support our youth - and drive away with a clean car!

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, March 15. All are welcome!

Seven of our youth plus two chaperones will be participating in March Mission Madness in Forsyth, Georgia, March 18-20. This is a weekend of service, mission, worship, and fun organized by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Georgia.

We will hold a Maundy Thursday worship service at 7:00 PM on Thursday, March 24. Music, scripture readings, and the celebration of the Lord's Supper will help us remember the night that Jesus met with the disciples in the upper room. Join us for this meaningful Holy Week observance.

All children ages birth through sixth grade are invited to our Easter Party and Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 26, at 10:00 AM. Bring your Easter basket and be ready to have fun! We are asking all youth and volunteers to be here at 8:30 to set out the eggs.

Together with Reinhardt University, several Waleska-area churches (including HERITAGE) are hosting an Easter Sunrise Worship Service at 7:00 AM in Gordy Dining Hall on the Reinhardt campus. The service, led by pastors Scott Bosier, Tim Emmett, Neil Homer, Matt Sapp, and Jordan Thrasher, will be followed by a breakfast of pancakes, eggs, bacon, coffee and juice. Donations will be accepted, but not required.

Our Music Search Team and Personnel Committee are pleased to announce that Justin Bishop will be joining our ministry staff on April 1! We are throwing Justin and his family a "Welcome to HERITAGE" dinner at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, March 30. Will will not have our usual lunch or noontime Bible study that day. We hope you'll all plan to come meet Justin at suppertime!

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.
