Summer Missions at Kings Park

Summer Missions at Kings Park

Tuesdays in June

Our Vision 20/20 commitment to "Risk-taking Missions" leads us to Kings Park, right here in Macon. This neighborhood park, where we shared bicycles and God’s love at Christmas, will be the location of our summer missions project this year.

HHBC church members will experience God’s love with our neighbors in Kings Park on the four Tuesday mornings in June. Terrific Tuesdays will include a breakfast snack, games, and a time to rotate through music, art, recreation, and reading stations.

Later in the summer, our church will also be taking donations to create a school supply bank for the Kings Park community center. This will be a shelf of school supplies that these children can go to throughout the school year as needs arise.

Terrific Tuesdays at Kings Park will need your help! Youth and adults may volunteer. Children of volunteers who are age four and older may attend this event as participants. We especially need youth who can play with the children at recreation and get messy at the art station! Terrific Tuesdays will take place on June 5, 12, 19, and 26, from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. For more information, or to sign up to help, see Erin Hall or Emily Brumley.

As we go, we pray. Pray for these neighbors, pray for the connections we will make, pray that these children and their families will come to know that they are beloved children of God.

“Rolling…rolling…rolling on the river”—those lyrics, made famous by Tina Turner, may be ringing in our ears this summer as we prepare for Vacation Bible School 2018. This year the Rolling River Rampage is coming to Highland Hills, and we are preparing for the ride of a lifetime as we discover that life with God is an adventure filled with wonder and surprise.

We will hold our annual VBS on July 9 – 13 from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. As you know, it takes a large team of volunteers to carry out this ministry for our children and the many guests who will find their way to our campus for this event. If you are willing to join the adventure as a VBS volunteer, it is time to sign up! See Carol Brown or Ruth DuCharme to see how you can become a part of the Rolling River Rampage adventure.

Mother’s Day Worship in the Amphitheater

Mother’s Day Worship in the Amphitheater

Sunday, May 13

Worship is a sacred and beautiful time at Highland Hills. On Sunday morning, May 13, our congregation will gather in the church’s amphitheater for our morning worship service, as we celebrate Mother’s Day. Our tradition of giving flowers to our mothers and those who are like mothers to us will take on a new twist as we are surrounded by God’s beautiful creation. As we enjoy the beauty around us, we will worship in a way that is more casual in style and dress. Sunday School will begin at 9:45 a.m., as always, and then the service will begin at 11:00 a.m. Make plans to join your fellow worshipers, as well as the deer, the squirrels, and the birds, as we gather to worship God together in our beautiful amphitheater.
