Dear Members and Friends of Heritage Presbyterian Church,
As many of you have heard, our beloved office administrator Joan Burnett has decided to retire after 18 years of faithful service. We would like everyone to join us as we send well wishes and congratulations on Sunday, December 9th right after church (church at 10:00 and reception at 11:00). Please save the date. More information to follow. Thank You, Leslie Perotti (on behalf of the planning committee)

Hanging of the Greens is December 2nd.

There will be a Congregational Meeting on December 2nd immediately following the worship service.  The purpose of the meeting is to elect two elders to our Session.  Please plan to attend to assure a quorum is present.  Thank you.  The Nominating Committee

 Save the Date: December 8th 2-4pm Open House at Kay Talbot’s (180 Wildflower Avenue, Vallejo (Glen Cove). Please come and find some new “treasures” you can take away-NO CHARGE! Any donation will go to Heritage Church. You will find kitchen equipment, gardening tools, small appliances, and washer and dryer, a dolly, stuffed animals, jewelry, and miscellaneous household items. Everything must go!

 The Women’s Christmas Party is December 13th 6:30-8:30pm at Melody Seymour’s home. Once again, we will be having a cookie exchange and make up care packages of cookies to be delivered to those who cannot attend. This year we will be collecting NEW socks for children and women to be donated to SafeQuest.

For those wanting to contribute to the rebuilding following the Butte County fire:
Dear Pastors,
If members of your congregation would like to make financial contributions in response to the Camp Fire in Butte Co., I suggest you send the funds directly to Sacramento Presbytery. Of course, another alternative is always Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.
The address for Sacramento Presbytery is: 9983 Folsom Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95827.Thank you. Blessings, Bob Conover

Dear P4P Supporters and Friends,
Exciting news! Together we raised $50,877.00 for the 2018 ride. The 5th annual Pedal for Protein’s 50 riders, supporting congregations and many friends, made this possible. Pedal for Protein will be feeding necessary protein food to thousands of hungry neighbors in our Presbytery and one Presbytery Hunger Program mission project, because of our efforts! Full report will be available in December with breakdown of the disbursement of grants.
Pedaling Blessings,
Patty Sanders
Pedal for Protein Ride Director
Hunger Action Advocate
Presbytery of the Redwoods
