Trunk or Treat is a favorite October tradition at Highland Hills! This event will be held on Wednesday, October 29, with children trick or treating to cars in the back parking lot, followed by a hot dog supper served by our youth as a fundraiser for their mission trip.

Adults and youth are encouraged to decorate their cars in a non-scary Halloween style, park them in the designated area at the back of the church parking lot beginning at 5:00 p.m., and bring along a bag of Halloween candy to distribute to the children.

Children are invited to come in costume and go from car to car to receive their treats. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated cars and for the best costumes!

The hot dog supper, in the back parking lot, will be served by our youth as a fundraiser for their summer mission trip. The cost for the meal is $5.00 for adults and $2.50 for children.

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

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.

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.
