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

HERITAGE Home Groups will be getting back together soon! If you're not already participating in a Home Group or if you'd like to explore more Home Group options, talk to Matt Sapp after worship any Sunday this month or contact us online here. 

Our Wednesday services of REST will resume on Wednesday, January 11, with music provided by Justin Bishop and Joan Denney. For the remainder of the year, we'll host REST services on the first Wednesday of each month. We want REST to continue to be a meaningful time of reflection and prayer, and we're excited about the things that this schedule change will allow us to do with the service. Read more about REST here. 

Mark your calendars and get out your favorite recipes! We're holding our annual Souper Bowl pot luck lunch and canned food drive benefiting our Hasty Backpack ministry after worship on Sunday, February 5. Bring a pot of chili or soup and/or a dessert to share with your church family as well as food items for the children at Hasty. The prestigious Golden Ladle and Golden Spatula awards will be bestowed upon the chefs with the best soup/chili and dessert!

Every week, HERITAGE fills backpacks full of food for children at Hasty Elementary who might otherwise go hungry on weekends. 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!
