VBS Teacher Snacks

VBS Teacher Snacks

We are grateful for all of our Vacation Bible School volunteers, and want to provide some simple snacks for them to enjoy during our VBS week. You can help us with this by providing some sweet or salty finger foods. Donations can be placed in the Great Room kitchen.

For parents who are bringing children to VBS and would like to donate snacks for our teachers, we have a suggested timeline for donating. This will help spread donations out throughout the week.

Neighborhood Cookout

Neighborhood Cookout

Friday, July 10

A neighborhood cookout is a great time to meet new neighbors, chat with familiar friends, and celebrate the fun of summer.

Highland Hills is hosting a cookout for our church members and our neighbors on Friday, July 10, at the end of Vacation Bible School. The VBS Closing Celebration will take place in the chapel at 6:00 p.m. then we’ll gather in the courtyard at 7:00 p.m. for the cookout. Join us for hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, a giant inflatable slide, lawn games, and lots of fun!

Youth on Mission at Passport Averett

Youth on Mission at Passport Averett

Passport Summer Camp has become a tradition with the youth of Highland Hills. This year our youth will be attending Passport Averett in Danville, Virginia, July 12-18.

This year’s group from Highland Hills includes 15 youth and three chaperones. Our group will join up with 300 youth and adults from around the country for this Passport experience.

The theme for Passport this year is “Revolution”, featuring the scripture James 2:18b, “…I’ll show you my faith by putting it into practice in faithful action.” Through bible studies, devotions, small groups,worship, meals, awesome fun times, games and parties the students will learn that the Kingdom of God is here and Jesus came to Flip the world order and invited us to be a part of it. Please keep our youth and their leaders in your prayers as they work, play and share the love of our Lord with the people of Danville, Virginia.

Family Adventure at High Falls Waterpark

Family Adventure at High Falls Waterpark

It's almost time for our Highland Hills annual outing to High Falls Waterpark. This event has become a summer favorite for our church, 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 22 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 an adult should accompany children and youth to this event.

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!

The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club

Conversations Inspired by '80s Movies

This summer, young(ish) adults will gather together for brunch and Bible study. This will be a casual, fun group of people from different Sunday School classes. They will meet in the Great Room and enjoy creative lessons from different teachers.

The Breakfast Club will meet from June 7 through August 2. Brunch begins at 9:45 a.m. We hope that you will join in. If you're not a "regular" in Sunday School, this is the perfect time to come and reconnect with HHBC friends in a new way. Summer schedules are flexible. Don't worry if you miss a week, just join in the next week. We hope to see you in The Breakfast Club!
