Latest News from Heritage Baptist Church
Friday evenings fundraiser banquet was a huge success. The students served our guests a delicious meal and entertained us with wonderful music and speeches. We want to extend our sincerest thanks to all those who supported our fundraising efforts. The banquet raised $20,760 towards our financial projects. The outpouring of support has been a great encouragement to our staff. Over the next weeks we will be acquiring our new equipment - we hope to be able to obtain all of our goals. Here is a sampling of some pictures from the banquet.
Students to National Competition
During the week of April 7-11 our senior high students competed in the national competition held at Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC. We are delighted to have three first place ratings at the competition: our Handbell Ensemble, Katrina Wendling in percussion solo, and Sarah Jawor/Grace Betry in the Piano/Organ Duet. Our Handbell Choir placed third as well.
The entire trip was an enjoyable one. It is exciting to see our students develop talents at this level. Congratulations on a job well done!
Pastor Betry Farewell
On January 31, we had a special luncheon to honor Pastor Keith Betry on his last day at Heritage. Pastor Betry has accepted the senior pastor position at Beth Eden Baptist Church in Massachusetts. We celebrated the 14 years of ministry he had among us. Fun memories and touching tributes were given. Pastor Betry will be greatly missed. May God bless you, Pastor Betry.
