Announcements

The final tally is in: from August 28 to September 25, we collected $2,417 for the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship's Offering for Global Missions. Thank  you for supporting the efforts of missionaries worldwide!

Heritage Game Day, our monthly fellowship of food and card/board games, will be held in the fellowship hall on Thursday, October 6, at 11:30 AM. The hosts will provide the main dish; please bring sides and/or dessert to share. Invite your friends!

The Adventure Club invites everyone to join them on a trip to the Atlanta Botanical Garden on Thursday evening, October 13, for the “Chihuly in the Garden” art exhibit. Internationally acclaimed artist, Dale Chihuly, is known for his colorful, magnificent works of glass. The exhibit features 19 installation sites which take on a new dimension when viewed at night. We will meet at the Ingles parking lot adjacent to the YMCA at 5:00 PM to carpool. We do not plan to eat on this trip, so please eat beforehand. Admission to the Garden is $21.95 plus tax and a small parking fee. We will buy tickets at the door, or you can buy your tickets in advance online.

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Georgia will hold its annual Senior Celebration on Thursday, October 27, at Heritage Baptist Church in Cartersville. The theme is “Reminiscing about the Future.” Clarissa Strickland, our recent Anniversary Sunday guest, will be the featured speaker. The $15 cost includes lunch. Register online by October 20.

Our HERITAGE Home Groups will take a two-week hiatus after finishing up our study of I Am a Church Member by Thom Rainer. This means we will not have our brown bag fellowship lunch or Wednesday noon Home Group at church on October 12 or 19, but both will resume on October 26. 

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. 

After many, many pleasant mornings together, we have decided to end our monthly "Goodfellas and Laughin' Ladies" fellowship. We will continue to find fellowship at church and in other ways! 

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!
