Vacation Bible School 2016

Vacation Bible School 2016

At Highland Hills Baptist Church’s Vacation Bible School you can catch a wave to God’s amazing love. Join us at the Surf Shack where we will encounter God’s awesomeness through Bible stories, crafts, music, games, and snacks.

Our VBS has classes for children who were three years old, as of September 1, 2015, through those who have completed sixth grade. The dates are Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 15. We begin the day at 9:00 am and end at noon. You can register your child on here or by calling the church office (478) 746-4846.

Join us as we learn how we are meant to experience the wonderful love of God every day!

Summer Reading & Discussion Groups

Summer Reading & Discussion Groups

It’s time to begin your summer reading! Summer is a great time to enjoy a good book, and an even better time to share that book with friends. This summer you are invited to come together with other members of our faith community to read and discuss two books. The first book we will read in July is Henri Nouwen's Can You Drink the Cup? The discussion group for this book will be held on Tuesday, July 19, at 7:00 p.m. This book can be purchased in the church office for $10.

The second book that we will read together in August will be Fierce Love by Jeanie Miley. Jeanie was with us in February for our church-wide retreat. After the retreat, many of our members were eager to explore this book together. The discussions of this book will be held in two sessions, and those attending should try to attend both sessions. The discussion dates are Monday, August 15, and Monday, August 22, both at 7:00 p.m. You can purchase Fierce Love in the office for $15. Happy reading!

Special Events on Wednesdays in June

Wednesdays at HHBC are filled with bustle and activity, learning and fun. During the summer, our Wednesday schedule changes some but we still love Wednesdays! This summer, our June Wednesdays are a great time to fellowship with our HHBC families and invite your friends to get to know us, too. 

Wednesday, June 15: After three days of serving our community through Mission Macon, we’ll gather in the Great Room at 6:00 p.m. for a casual supper and Missions Wrap-up.

Wednesday, June 22: Enjoy dinner with your family or join with other families and friends for a Selfie Supper! Snap a photo or two of your fun evening and post them to social media with the hashtag, #HHBCSelfieSupper. Or you can send your photos to Anna at churchoffice@highlandhillsbaptist.org and she will post them on our social media pages. A family conversation guide will be provided to help you get the most out of your evening. Get creative with your selfies…awards will be given for some of the best! We will not hold activities at HHBC on this evening, so enjoy this time with your families.

Faith, Film, and Breakfast

Faith, Film, and Breakfast

Adult Sunday School Series

Beginning June 5, our HHBC adults and guests will gather on Sunday mornings for breakfast and discussion in a special series entitled, “Apostles at the Movies: A Faith, Food, and Film Series.”

The series, based on Faith and Film, by Bryan P. Stone, will focus on the themes of the earliest confessions of faith, the Apostles’ Creed. From the powerful Shawshank Redemption to the classic comedy Oh, God!, the series will use movies and phrases of the Apostles’ Creed to illustrate basic themes of theology in popular culture.

Bring a breakfast dish to share and join us on Sunday mornings in the Great Room to watch and learn together.

School's Out! But Sunday School Is In!

School's Out! But Sunday School Is In!

Children's Summer Sunday School

School’s out, but Sunday School is in, and it’s the place to be this summer! We are changing things up a bit for Children’s Sunday School this summer. Yes, there will still be solid biblical learning, awesome teachers, and sensational friends, but there will be some new additions to our Sunday morning routine. We want all of our children to be a part of the experience.

So what’s new? Each Sunday at 9:45 a.m., all of the children will come together for a Gathering Time. There will be a light breakfast snack, songs, and a fun activity to introduce the day’s lesson. Then we will divide into our traditional age divisions for the lesson time. There is a new curriculum. For the months of June, July, and August, we will splash through the curriculum titled Celebrating God’s Creation with stories about water, earth, and animals. There is also a new energy about Sunday School and the value that it brings to our lives, so come and experience it!

We want you to enjoy this special season of summer. We want you to relax, take a vacation, play with family and friends, but we encourage you to stay connected to Highland Hills. When you are in town join us for Bible study and worship. There are great offerings for everyone at Highland Hills.

C.O.P.E Event and Vespers Worship

C.O.P.E Event and Vespers Worship

Sunday, June 12, 4-6pm

Come experience a poverty simulation event that will offer a glimpse into the lives of low-income individuals and families in our community. C.O.P.E. is an event that allows participants to encounter the obstacles, the decisions that are made, and the consequences that impact these families every day. Sunday June 12, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm. All are welcome for this free community event. Childcare is available by signing up here. 

More about C.O.P.E: The CareSource Foundation partnered with ThinkTank Inc. to develop this kit which was co-designed with low-income individuals who shared their story so that participants could gain a greater understanding. Highland Hills Baptist is grateful to offer this C.O.P.E. event, which has been used to help many organizations across the country work more effectively with low-income families and address the issues of poverty more comprehensively.
