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.

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! (See the calendar above to note which Sundays will be at the Sapps' and which Sundays will involve something a little different.)

Calling all ladies of all ages! Join us for tea and luncheon on Sunday, May 1, immediately after worship. Bring your favorite finger sandwiches or desserts to share. We will provide a variety of hot teas to suit your fanciest fancy. Hats and gloves are not required for this time of girlish gab and feminine fellowship! 

Heritage Game Day, our monthly fellowship of food and card/board games, will be held in the Fellowship Hall on Thursday, May 5, at 11:30 AM. The hosts will provide the main dish; please bring sides and/or dessert to share. Invite your friends!

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Georgia and the New Era Missionary Baptist Convention of Georgia will jointly host a "Day of Work and Worship" on Saturday, May 14, at the New Era Missionary Baptist Center in Griffin, Georgia.  CBF/GA and New Era have covenanted to serve and work in partnership with one another and with God. This Day of Work and Worship will provide a wonderful opportunity to do that in a very hands-on way! There is a lot of relatively light but dirty work to be done at the Center, both inside and around the grounds. Many hands will make this work fun! Learn more and register at http://www.cbfga.org/56/New-Era-Baptist-Partnership.

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Georgia will hold its first annual Senior Retreat at First Baptist Church of St. Simons Island May 16-17. Lodging is at the St. Simons Inn by the Lighthouse (or wherever you can find a place if the Inn is full). Book your room now if you haven't already! Registration for the retreat itself is only $10 and includes Monday lunch, guest speakers, music, opportunities to serve, and (of course) time to explore the island. Find more information and register at http://www.cbfga.org/68/Senior-Adult-Retreat-Celebrating-Faithfulness

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, May 17. All are welcome!

All children ages 5-11 are invited to join us for a "Kids in the Kitchen" Party right after worship on Sunday, May 22. Kids will make their own pizzas for lunch, and then participate in various cooking activities. Each young chef will go home with a variety of foods they have cooked. Please RSVP to the church office by Monday, May 16, and let us know if your child has any food allergies.
