Announcements

Heritage Game Day, our monthly fellowship of food and card/board games, will be held in the fellowship hall on Thursday, September 6, 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!

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, September 20, at 11:30 AM.

We will have “Dessert, Coffee, and Discussion” at 6:30 PM on Wednesdays, September 5, 12, and 26 in the fellowship hall. Our Associate Pastor, Justin Bishop, will lead the first session on “Spiritual Formation;” find out what “taking your faith to the next level” means for you. Licensed counselor Guyeth Nash will lead the next two sessions on “The Changing Family” and “Complicated Grief.” Join us to learn how to maintain and build a vital, healthy family through life changes and how to navigate the complex process of grief. On these Wednesdays, choir practice will begin after the discussion ends.

Heritage Fellowship will celebrate its 24th anniversary on September 9! We will mark the occasion both with our regular worship service at 11:00 AM and with a joint fellowship lunch and worship service with Hickory Log Baptist Church. Lunch will be at 2:30 in the fellowship hall; please bring side dishes. The joint worship service will be at 4:00 in the sanctuary; choirs and members from both churches will help lead this special service.

What’s better than music and food? Music and food together! Join us on Sunday, September 30 for a delicious shrimp & grits dinner and trio concert! Dinner will be at 5:00 PM with special musical entertainment. The concert, which will present “Music through the Ages,” will begin at 6:00. The concert is free; tickets for the dinner are $10 and may be purchased in the church office.

Coming in October! We will begin a 6-week discussion series on finding God outside the church walls with the help of Barbara Brown Taylor’s inspiring book, An Altar in the World. We’ll kick off this Wednesday evening series with a potluck supper on October 3 and work our way through the book from there. Join us in the fellowship hall at 6:00 PM each Wednesday, October 3 through November 28 (except October 31 and November 21).

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!

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.
