The service will be held in front of the Felany Performing Arts Center building and will be led by Rev. Jamie Hudgins, Reinhardt's campus pastor. A light breakfast of biscuits, coffee, and juice will be served immediately afterwards. In the event of inclement weather, the service will be moved to Flint Hall inside the Felany Center.

The Pastor Search Committee invites everyone to a covered dish supper on Wednesday, April 4, at 5:30 PM, at which they will make their recommendation for Heritage's new pastor. The candidate will preach at the worship service on Sunday, April 8, and a vote will be taken immediately after the service.

Our third annual Keyboards at Christmas concert will be held in the sanctuary at 3:00 PM on Sunday, December 3. Kick off the Christmas season with this fun, FREE concert filled with sacred and secular Christmas favorites performed by 6 keyboardists on 4 pianos plus organ! This year's concert will be bigger and better than ever - even the Grinch will appear! We are asking all our HERITAGE family to bring finger foods for the community-wide reception to be held in the fellowship hall after the concert. 

On the first Wednesday of each month, we open our sanctuary for a special time of quiet prayer, reflection, meditation, and rest, accompanied by music carefully chosen to facilitate prayer and mindfulness. This month's music will be provided by Trudy Cox. Join us on Wednesday, December 6, at 6:00 PM for some much-needed REST.

The Christmas tree in the sanctuary is decorated with the wished and needs of local children. Help give them a merry Christmas by taking an ornament and fulfilling the request written on it. Return your gift(s) to the church by Sunday, December 10.

Since Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, we will only have one worship service that day - at our usual 11:00 time. We will not have an evening service, but we will make the morning service an extra-special one as we prepare our hearts to receive the gift of Christ.

On New Year's Eve, instead of our usual Sunday morning classes and activities, we'll have a churchwide breakfast together in the fellowship hall at 9:45 AM. Please bring a breakfast dish to share. We will still have our worship service in the sanctuary at 11:00. 

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.
