Announcements

Heritage Game Day, our monthly fellowship of food and card/board games, will be held in the fellowship hall on Thursday, August 2, at 11:30 AM. The hosts will provide the main dish of "crummy chicken;" please bring sides and/or dessert to share. All are welcome!

Sunday, August 5, will be Gospel Sunday! The worship service will include some "good ole fashioned" hymns. Wear your fancy "Sunday hat" if you have one, and come ready to sing!

We love our monthly Game Days so much that we've decided to do them twice a month! We now host "Game Day Lite" on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Instead of a pot luck lunch, though, we'll bring our own bag lunches. This month's Game Day Lite will be on Thursday, August 16, at 11:30 AM.

The Waleska Farmers' Market has a new location this year - the parking lot at Heritage Fellowship! The Market will be open every Thursday, May 31-November 1, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Stop by for fresh produce, baked goods, food trucks, and more!

On Wednesdays, August 8, 22, and 29, come discover how we are "Cultivating Beloved Community" through local and global missions. We'll have guest speakers from some of our ministry partner organizations, videos filmed on location, and group discussions. The program begins at 6:00 PM, preceded by fellowship supper at 5:30. Wednesday supper menus are listed below.

Our quarterly church business meeting will be held at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, August 15, preceded by fellowship supper at 5:30. The supper menu is listed below. Come take part in the life of our church!

August Fellowship Supper Menus (will be updated as information is available):
August 8: meatloaf, fresh vegetables, wedge salad, rolls, dessert
August 15: lemony roasted chicken wings, tomato sandwiches, corn on the cob, chocolate eclair cake
August 22: baked ham, fresh garden vegetables, dessert
August 29: chicken and rice, dessert
Meals are $5 for adults and $2.50 for children, with a maximum price of $18 per family. Please RSVP for supper using the purple cards in the pew racks or by contacting the office before 5:00 PM on the Monday of that week. 

The choir will go on a retreat for a time of fellowship and rehearsal Friday and Saturday, August 17-18. We'll kick off the retreat with dinner at Red Top Mountain State Park on Friday at 5:30 PM; dinner is $5 per person. We will resume at the church at 9:30 AM on Saturday and conclude with lunch at 11:30. This is a great time to join the choir! Talk to Justin if you have any questions.

Christmas already?! Yes, we are already thinking ahead to the Advent season and the Advent booklet for 2018. The theme this year will be "My Favorite Christmas Memory." We'll choose and edit 24 entries and include them in this year's booklet. So think about Christmases past, write down (or email) your memories, and give your recollections to Justin, Julie, or Kay no later than September 30.
