Announcements

On Sunday, September 3, we'll have our third annual "Music Sunday" worship service, filled with favorite hymns, guest musicians, and all kinds of beautiful music. Come experience the glory of God in music!

After a summer hiatus, our monthly service of holy rest will resume on Wednesday, September 6, at 6:00 PM (please note that this is a new time). Our sanctuary will be open for quiet prayer, reflection, meditation, and rest, accompanied by special music carefully chosen to facilitate prayer and mindfulness. If you'd like some guidance on how to spend your time, we offer prayer booklets with suggestions for how you might pray. Join us on the first Wednesday of the month for some much needed REST.

Heritage Game Day, our monthly fellowship of food and card/board games, will be held in the fellowship hall on Thursday, September 7, at 11:30 AM. The hosts will provide pork roast; please bring sides and/or dessert to share. Invite your friends!

We will celebrate our congregation's 23rd anniversary on Sunday, September 10, with a special worship service built on the theme of "Celebrating Our Faith." Afterwards, we'll have lunch together in the fellowship hall. The Family Life Team will provide chicken, ham, meatloaf, and drinks; please bring a side dish and/or dessert to share. This will also be the Sapps' last Sunday with us. You don't want to miss it!

We have changed our choir practice schedule to make it easier for folks to be here without missing out on other church activities. We will practice on Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 9:45, and on those Wednesday evenings when there are other church events happening (such as REST or church business meetings). This month, practices will be on Sunday mornings and at 6:30 PM (after REST) on Wednesday, September 6. 

Throughout the school year, HERITAGE provides backpacks full of food for children at Hasty Elementary School who might otherwise go hungry on weekends. We currently need cans of soup, small cans of vegetables, small cans of meat, Hormel "Compleats," and individual sweet snacks. (At this time, we do NOT need fruit snacks, salty snacks, breakfast foods, or peanut butter and jelly.) Food donations may be left in the marked baskets in the sanctuary foyer and fellowship hall. Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated! 

Remember that you can give to HERITAGE anytime, anywhere! Simply click the "give" link at the top of our website or download the Tithe.ly app on your smartphone. Set up one-time or recurring donations with just a few clicks.
