Summer Wednesdays Schedule

Summer Wednesdays Schedule

The summer months are a great time to enjoy some quality time with family and friends. At Highland Hills, the summer schedule includes a relaxing gathering on Wednesday evenings for food and fellowship.
 
During June, our church family will gather at 6:00 p.m. in the Great Room for Family Night Supper, with meals prepared by our Family Night Supper Committee. The meal will be followed by Prayer Service at 6:30 p.m. and Sanctuary Choir rehearsal at 7:10 p.m.
 
We will take a break from Wednesday night suppers, prayer service, and choir during the month of July. Join us on Wednesday, July 23, for a family adventure at High Falls Water Park.
 
During August, we will resume our summer Wednesday night schedule beginning on August 6. We will end the summer with a Music and Missions Kickoff on August 27.
 
As we enjoy the slower pace of summer, we encourage you to continue to gather with our HHBC family for a time of food, fellowship, and fun.

Bill and Teddi Wohlford

Bill and Teddi Wohlford

Many of you are aware of a house fire that has damaged the home of Bill and Teddi Wohlford. Already so many of you have joined in the effort to help the Wohlford's as they rebuild and renovate their home.  Thank you for the congregational care that you have so freely offered to Bill and Teddi.  The work is not yet over.  Their home will require extensive renovation.
 
The church will be receiving funds on behalf of the Wohlford's.  If you wish to give to Bill and Teddi directly, the church will act as a central collection point. Simply designate your gift to the Wohlford's.  (These gifts will not be considered charitable donations to Highland Hills Baptist Church and will be dispersed directly to the Wohlford's.)
