PIM Salad Supper

PIM Salad Supper

Tuesday, September 2, at 6:30 p.m.

The Partners in Missions group invites all HHBC women to attend a salad supper at the home of Patricia Netherton on Tuesday, September 2, at 6:30 p.m. Bring your favorite salad and invite a friend.  Beverages and dessert will be furnished. Following a wonderful meal, we will put together grief baskets which are delivered to church families when there is a death in the family.

The Salad Supper is the first of eight exciting programs that are planned  for PIM during 2014 - 2015.  In addition to our annual International and North American mission emphases, we will have a program featuring Spiritual Creativity led by Wimberley Rader and a program on hospitality. We have plans to work with our shut-ins and are researching how and what we can provide to the homeless at DayBreak.  If possible, we may take a couple of road trips.  Plan to be a part of all or some of these interesting and meaningful activities.

WOM Collecting School Supplies

WOM Collecting School Supplies

Women on Missions is collecting school supplies during the months of August and September.  The supplies will be donated to Park Avenue Baptist Church in Atlanta, the location of the church's mission trip earlier this summer.  Church members who participated saw first-hand the many needs of the children served by Park Avenue.  Collection boxes are located in the hallway near the parlor, in the Great Room foyer, and downstairs near the elevator.

Lost and Found Dishes

Lost and Found Dishes

We are accumulating a collection of lost dishes in the kitchen. If you did not retrieve your dishes after a funeral meal or other occasion, please look at our collection on the counter in the kitchen to see if any of our assortment belongs to you. Thank you!

Bill and Teddi Wohlford

Bill and Teddi Wohlford

Many of you are aware of a house fire that has damaged the home of Bill and Teddi Wohlford. Already so many of you have joined in the effort to help the Wohlford's as they rebuild and renovate their home.  Thank you for the congregational care that you have so freely offered to Bill and Teddi.  The work is not yet over.  Their home will require extensive renovation.
 
The church will be receiving funds on behalf of the Wohlford's.  If you wish to give to Bill and Teddi directly, the church will act as a central collection point. Simply designate your gift to the Wohlford's.  (These gifts will not be considered charitable donations to Highland Hills Baptist Church and will be dispersed directly to the Wohlford's.)

Sunday School Promotion Day

Sunday School Promotion Day

Sunday, August 24

On August 24, Highland Hills will hold Promotion Sunday. This is the Sunday that launches a new year of exploring God’s Word. On this Sunday, many of our youth and children will promote to new classes. Our first graders will receive Bibles during the morning worship service. This gift from our church to these children is a symbol of our desire to place God’s Word in their hands and upon their hearts.
 
Promotion Sunday isn’t just for youth and children. It can also be a day that adults recommit themselves to being a part of a Bible study group. It can be a day in which we, as a congregation, decide to take seriously God’s mandate from Deuteronomy 11:18 to “put these words of mine in your heart and soul…teach them to your children, talking about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.”
 
Make your way to Sunday School this year. Find a class where you can open the Scriptures and discover God’s word for you.
