Macon Sense Care Groups

Macon Sense Care Groups

Two new care groups, a Grief Care Group and an Infertility Care Group, are set to begin at Highland Hills in May. At Highland Hills, we acknowledge the physical, emotional, and spiritual impact of these struggles, and seek to bring this grief out of isolation or fear and into a community of compassion. To this end, these care groups offer resources and confidential, supportive care.
Sign up by contacting our church office to receive information about our first meeting.

Then they'll come back to the church at 8:00 p.m. for pickup.

Youth need to bring a bathing suit, water shoes, towel and clothes to change into. They are welcome to bring a fishing pole and gear, too. There is no electricity or running water but there is a potty. (Don't worry, we'll be taking everything we need.)

Children's Musical: Malice In the Palace

Children's Musical: Malice In the Palace

Wednesday, May 13, 6:45 p.m.

Malice In the Palace is our children’s spring musical, and is a fun retelling of the story of Esther. The musical is filled with fabulous songs and a powerful message. That message is that the smallest person acting bravely can make an enormous difference, because God has placed them where they are for a reason.

Our Children’s Choir has been busy preparing this musical for you, and they invite you to join them on the evening of Wednesday, May 13, at 6:45 p.m. in the chapel for this presentation.

Following the musical, there will be a cookie fellowship in the courtyard as we celebrate the conclusion of another great year for our Children’s Choir Ministry. Besides learning music, this year our choir children have also focused on ministry. They have collected school items to be given to the children at Burdell-Hunt Elementary.
 

You are encouraged to bring a school supply item to the musical. There will be collection bins at the entrance of the chapel for you to place your items.
