Join us for a "Pinterest Night" that's just our style.

You are invited to:

  • Bring your best "Pinterest Fail" with you

  • Bring a favorite "pinned" recipe/food item to share

  • Gather with other moms who are nailing it in so many ways, even if it doesn't always look "Pinterest perfect"

  • Have a little fun with some things we have "pinned"

  • Talk through how we can try new things, own our "fails" and learn to let go

We would love to see you for this evening gathering. We'll meet at #hhbcmacon, 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Whether you are very crafty or not at all, you are welcome. Casual setting, open to all, childcare available (with sign up) #moxiemomsmacon

Stephen Ministry Matters

Stephen Ministry Matters

Recognizing that God is the ultimate Cure Giver, the Mission of the Highland Hills Baptist Church Stephen Ministry is to serve God and bring Christ’s healing love to individuals who are experiencing life’s challenges through confidential, non-judgmental, one-on-one Christian care.

PROCESS VS. RESULTS IN CAREGIVING

Module #5: Process vs. Results in Caregiving fits well into the journey on which Jake is leading us during this season of Epiphany. This is the “aha” moment in the training series.

The key understanding of Module #5 is that we are not expected to (nor can we) “fix” whatever problems our care receivers might have. Stephen Leader facilitator John Jarrard helped us learn the difference between our role as caregivers and God’s role as the Curegiver. This establishment of roles is what makes Stephen Ministry possible, although the concept is counter to our results oriented society. Stephen Ministry caring is a process in which the caregiver listens and supports the care receiver as she/he works through his/her problems; it is through the grace of God that the care receiver is healed.

Please keep our Stephen Ministry trainees in your prayers as we learn to acknowledge that God is the Curegiver; the Stephen Minister is the caregiver. Grant us the patience to allow His healing to “fix” the problem, not us as Stephen Ministers.

Walking this Way: Sundays, Wednesdays, and More in 2019

Walking this Way: Sundays, Wednesdays, and More in 2019

The season of Epiphany invites us all to take a walk together to a place we have never been. Don’t worry, pilgrimages aren’t about going to an unknown location, so much as finding a home in a new or unexpected way. In January and February, you will be invited to be engaged at Highland Hills in new ways. Maybe you will strike out in a new study group or explore a unique opportunity for service in missions. Our time together on Sunday and Wednesday will explore and inspire this journey within you. You don’t have to go around the world to experience a spiritual pilgrimage, you only need to get out of your own way.
