Summer Lunch is here! HERITAGE is once again a distribution center and provider of lunches for MUST Ministries' Summer Lunch Program. We pack and deliver lunches every weekday at 9:00 AM (meet in the fellowship hall). We also make sandwiches and fill lunch bags together on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM. We always appreciate helping hands and donations of money or supplies. We need sandwich-size zipper bags, juice pouches or boxes, individual bags of chips or pretzels, and applesauce or fruit cups. Please note: We will not make or deliver lunches on Monday, July 4.

HERITAGE will host its second annual concert by American Patriot Winds on Wednesday, July 6, at 7:00 PM, followed by an ice cream social in the fellowship hall. We are asking all HERITAGE families to bring homemade ice cream or sweet treats, and the church will supply the toppings and tableware. Since freezer space is limited, please bring your ice cream packed in ice. This event was a huge success last year, and we look forward to having even more fun this year!Heritage Game Day, our monthly fellowship of food and card/board games, will be held in the Fellowship Hall on Thursday, July 7, at 11:30 AM. The Powells will provide the main dish; please bring sides and/or dessert to share. Invite your friends!

While our regular Wednesday fellowship meals are on hiatus for the summer, we have planned several "Summer Tuesday Nights" to meet at local restaurants and enjoy a time of informal fellowship. We will meet at 6:30 PM at the following locations and dates:
July 5: Sidelines Grille (147 Reinhardt College Parkway)
July 19: The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta Food Court (915 Ridgewalk Parkway, Woodstock)
August 2: To be announced

Join us on Saturday, July 9, for an all-ages work day to give our church property some TLC. There will be indoor and outdoor jobs plus missions opportunities for people of all ages. The fun begins at 8:00 AM with coffee, juice, and donuts. Please bring rakes, shovels, and wheelbarrows if you have them.

The Strategic Planning Team will present their initial vision for facilities upgrades and refurbishment to the entire church family at a special lunch after worship on Sunday, July 10. The church will provide fried chicken and drinks for everyone; please bring a side dish and/or dessert to share. 

With Summer Lunch happening in the morning and Tuesday fellowship happening in the evening, we have decided not to have our regular Goodfellas and Laughin' Ladies gathering this month. We'll see you in August!

All youth are invited to a pool party and cookout at the Harrisons' home on Sunday, July 17. Meet at the church at 2:30 PM to carpool, or meet us at the Harrisons' at 3:00. Please bring a side dish or drink to share, and don't forget your towel, swimsuit, and dry clothes.

Our youth will take their annual end-of-summer trip to Six Flags over Georgia on Saturday, August 6. Stay tuned for more information.

Mark your calendars! The whole church is invited to enjoy a Rome Braves game on Saturday, August, 27. Game time is 6:00 PM. More details will be announced as the date approaches.

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!
