MLK Day 2023

Give back More in 2024. Give your time and your talents to help those in our community. 

 I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.

Thanksgiving for the Shelter

This Thanksgiving, we are once again partnering with the Embry Rucker homeless shelter to provide a warm and festive meal for our community's most vulnerable residents. The shelter provides temporary shelter to men, women, and families, and our church has had a longstanding tradition of serving Sunday dinner there once a month and on special holidays.

We are seeking volunteers to help us make this Thanksgiving a memorable one for the residents of Embry Rucker. We have a variety of opportunities available, including:

Sunday Dinner at Embry Rucker

Have you and your family been blessed?  You can show gratitude by providing hot menu items for our needy brothers and sisters or serving Sunday Dinner at the Embry Rucker Shelter in Reston on Sunday, March 19, 2023.  Heritage will provide a meal for about 75 residents.  You may drop off hot menu items at the shelter located at 11975 Bowman Towne Dr., Reston, VA, 20190, between 3 PM and 4:30 PM. We especially need volunteers to serve the meal from 4:30 to 6:30 PM.

Please consider whether you could help with either and sign up below.

MLK Weekend of Service

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a champion of the poor and the marginalized. In his honor, the Heritage Community Outreach Ministry is coordinating a series of activities for a weekend of service Saturday January 14 - Monday, January 16.

Heritage Helps Volunteers

Our community continues to have food insecurity as the economy struggles to recover from the pandemic. Members and friends are needed to assist in this expanding food distribution program efforts behind the church on Saturday, December 17. Volunteers are needed during the week to assemble approximately 250 boxes and from 7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. on Saturday to sort the food and prepare the boxes for pick up or delivery. If you are willing to serve, please notify Roz Fehr in the Community Outreach Ministry.

Sunday Dinner at Embry Rucker Shelter

It is the Heritage custom to provide shelter meals on the third Sunday and holidays, so on October 16, 2022, Heritage Fellowship Church congregation members will provide Sunday dinner for residents at the Embry Rucker Shelter. The address is 11975 Bowman Towne Dr, Reston, VA 20190. Please prayerfully consider how you might help our brothers and sisters in need by providing the menu items for dinner at the shelter or serving dinner to residents from the shelter kitchen.
