July Book Discussion

July Book Discussion

Monday, July 21 at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm

Highland Hills’ Summer Book Discussions continue during the month of July as we read together Phyllis Tickle’s book, The Great Emergence. This book will lead us to discover what the great emergence in church and culture is, how it came to be, and where it is going.

To be a part of this book discussion you just need to purchase the book, begin reading, and then sign up to participate in either the morning or evening discussion groups with our pastor, Jake Hall. To order this book and begin reading, click here. You can sign up for the July Book Discussion by completing the form on this page or calling the church office. The Book Discussions will be held on Monday, July 21, at 10:00 a.m. in the Church Parlor and at 7:00 p.m. at a location to be announced.

Family Fun at High Falls Water Park

Family Fun at High Falls Water Park

Wednesday, July 23

Can you hear the sounds of water splashing and children giggling? If you can, it must be time for our Highland Hills annual outing to High Falls Water Park. This event has become a summer favorite for our church, and this year will be no exception as we gather for a wet and wonderful time together.
 
High Falls Water Park is located off of I-75 at exit 198, High Falls Road. We have rented the entire park just for our Highland Hills family and friends. The date for this event is Wednesday, July 23 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. You are encouraged to bring a picnic supper with you for the evening. This is a great event for inviting friends to enjoy the wonderful fellowship of our Highland Hills family.  Make plans to join us as we zip down the water slides, enjoy conversation beside the pool, or splash with our preschoolers by the pirate ship. Lifeguards will be on duty, but children and youth should be accompanied by an adult to this event.

Women's Retreat at St. Simons Island

Women's Retreat at St. Simons Island

The women of Highland Hills are invited to participate in a retreat that will take place on Friday, September 12, through Sunday, September 14. The retreat will be held at Epworth By the Sea on St. Simons Island. This beautiful setting will provide us a place to relax, renew our spirits, and refresh our faith. The theme for this year’s retreat is Help, Thanks, Wow, Amen! Women of all ages are encouraged to attend. In order to reserve your spot for the retreat, you will need to pay a $50 deposit by August 1. The total cost for the retreat is based on room occupancy: $155 for four to a room, $165 for three to a room, $185 for two to a room, and $275 for one to a room. You can pay your deposit through the church office or give it to Ruth DuCharme.

Summer Wednesdays Schedule

Summer Wednesdays Schedule

The summer months are a great time to enjoy some quality time with family and friends. At Highland Hills, the summer schedule includes a relaxing gathering on Wednesday evenings for food and fellowship.
 
During June, our church family will gather at 6:00 p.m. in the Great Room for Family Night Supper, with meals prepared by our Family Night Supper Committee. The meal will be followed by Prayer Service at 6:30 p.m. and Sanctuary Choir rehearsal at 7:10 p.m.
 
We will take a break from Wednesday night suppers, prayer service, and choir during the month of July. Join us on Wednesday, July 23, for a family adventure at High Falls Water Park.
 
During August, we will resume our summer Wednesday night schedule beginning on August 6. We will end the summer with a Music and Missions Kickoff on August 27.
 
As we enjoy the slower pace of summer, we encourage you to continue to gather with our HHBC family for a time of food, fellowship, and fun.

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.)
