Taking God's Light to the World

Taking God's Light to the World

Supplies Needed for Slovakia Mission Trip

Help our church take the Light of the World to the Roma in Slovakia. You can support our mission team with your prayers and encouragement and also by providing supplies needed for a backyard Bible club with Roma children.

Visit the bulletin board on the library hallway to see the supplies needed. You can take a light bulb from the bulletin board and purchase the supplies listed (or donate the suggested amount of money). Place the donated supplies in the basket below the bulletin board. You can return monetary donations to the church office with the light bulb attached. Please donate supplies by Wednesday, June 3.

Thank you for sharing supplies and resources to help share God's love!

Summer Reading with Friends

Summer Reading with Friends

There is nothing like a reading a good book during the lazy, hazy days of summer, but sharing that book with friends makes it even better. This summer we invite you to join your Highland Hills friends in reading two selected books.

The first book that we will read together and discuss at a date to be announced in July will be Lauren Winner’s Wearing God: Clothing, Laughter, Fire, and Other Overlooked Ways of Wearing God. You can order this book by clicking here.

The second book that we will be read and discussed in August will be Rachel Held Evans’
book Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church. You can order this book by clicking here. Happy reading!

Wonderful Wednesdays for Preschoolers and Children

Wonderful Wednesdays for Preschoolers and Children

Parents and children look forward to summertime and the break that it brings from the everyday routine. Summer is filled with new and different activities such as camps, Vacation Bible School, pool parties, and sleeping late. At Highland Hills, with the summer comes Wonderful Wednesdays.

On Wednesdays during the month of June, our preschoolers and children will enjoy a special event following our Family Night Supper. Each event is designed just for having fun together and spending time with friends, although along the way they may learn a thing or two.

This year our Wonderful Wednesday activities will begin on June 3 with a Sneak Peek at our Vacation Bible School theme, “Kingdom of the Son.” On June 10, we will break out the beach balls and limbo sticks for a Beach Party. Rachel Greco will lead us on June 17 with her own special art activity for the children. We will conclude Wonderful Wednesdays on June 24 with a Mystery Night. You will have to come and find out what the mystery activity will be!

Be sure to make a supper reservation for your family and join us on Wednesdays in June for Wonderful Wednesdays.

Macon Sense Care Groups

Macon Sense Care Groups

Two new care groups, a Grief Care Group and an Infertility Care Group, are set to begin at Highland Hills in May. At Highland Hills, we acknowledge the physical, emotional, and spiritual impact of these struggles, and seek to bring this grief out of isolation or fear and into a community of compassion.

To this end, these care groups offer resources and confidential, supportive care. Sign up by contacting our church office to receive information about our first meeting.
