All Saints Day Remembrance

All Saints Day Remembrance

Sunday, November 2

Our family of faith includes those who walk beside us each day and those who have gone before us. The blessings of those we have known continue long after the person is gone. On Sunday, November 2, our church will pause to remember those persons from our congregation who have died in the past year. This tradition helps us honor those who have walked before us and those who have made Highland Hills a strong and vibrant family of faith.
 
This year, we will prayerfully call the names of: Marvin Brown, Ann Bruner, Maxine Cardwell, Donald Duncan, Doe DuPree, Juanita Krysalka, J.W. Meadows, Jim Schaaf, Ruth Wise, and David Young.
 
We will affirm the gifts of life and eternal life that God granted them and grants us all. Make plans to attend this meaningful and moving service.

Children's Sunday

Children's Sunday

Sunday, November 9

One of the responsibilities that we are given is to raise our children to know and serve God. We are the ones who carry the light of Christ in our lives and who reveal that light to those whom God has entrusted to our care.

On Children’s Sunday, we get to see, hear, and feel the way that God is touching the lives of our children. We get to see them express their faith as they sing songs of praise and offer prayers of hope. We get to turn over the reigns of leadership on this Sunday so that our children can know the joy and responsibility of worship.

Join us on Sunday, November 9, during the morning worship hour as our children lead us into God’s presence. Let us surround them with our support and our prayers as we reaffirm our commitment to sharing the light of Christ with them.

International Summer Mission Trip 2015

International Summer Mission Trip 2015

June 13 - 22 in Slovakia

This year, HHBC’s summer mission trip will take our team to the heart of Europe, to serve alongside Dianne and Shane McNary, CBF field personnel in Slovakia. The McNarys live in Kosice, Slovakia, and minister in several communities in both Slovakia and Czech Republic.

The Slovakia Mission Trip leadership team is hoping to gather a team of 10 – 12 adults, with a variety of skills and an eagerness to share God’s love in the Slovak communities. The mission trip will take place from June 13 through June 22. Team members will minister to the Roma and Slovak communities by working through churches, schools, and other local partners. Projects may include landscaping public spaces, teaching English as a foreign language, promoting good nutrition and health, and caring for and showing love to marginalized children.

Information sessions will be held in the coming weeks to provide more details about the mission trip. Prayerfully consider if God is leading you to join the team and be the presence of Christ to people in need of God’s love and care.

Smoked Turkey Sale for Passport Mission Trip

Smoked Turkey Sale for Passport Mission Trip

October 1 - November 2

For the past few years, the youth of our church have sold Boston Butts during the Christmas season to help support the cost of their mission trip. They will still be doing the same during the month of November. Last year they added a turkey sale for Thanksgiving; it was such a big hit that they are doing it again this year. Charlie Barton will be smoking the turkeys. Orders for the turkeys will be taken throughout the month of October. They will be given out on Wednesday, November 12.

WOM Collecting Canned Goods

The Women on Missions group is collecting canned goods and staples for Thanksgiving and Christmas boxes for those in need in our community.  Collection boxes are located in the hallway near the Parlor, the foyer to the Great Room, and downstairs near the elevator.   
 
Thank you for your generous response to our August and September appeal for school supplies.  Three boxes of supplies were delivered to Park Avenue Baptist Church—the Atlanta inner-city location of the summer mission trip.  Don't forget!  Save those pull tabs from soft drink cans for Ronald McDonald House.  The tabs can be placed in the collection boxes also.
