CBF/GA Neighborhood Picnic

CBF/GA Neighborhood Picnic

Thanks for a Great Event!

HHBC hosted the first CBF/GA neighborhood event with a fabulous
picnic on August 23. Eight CBF/GA churches in Middle Georgia
joined together for good food and fellowship with thought toward a
future of working together to impact middle Georgia for Christ.
Renee Bennett, CBF/GA Assistant to the Coordinator for
Networking, expressed her appreciation. "The success of this event
was due in part to the leadership of Erin Hall. In a few short weeks,
Erin pulled together an HHBC host team and made a plan. I
personally want to thank Erin Hall, as well as her many volunteers,
for a job well done. Erin, the event surpassed my wildest dreams!
Thank you!"

Children's Worship Resumes

Children's Worship Resumes

After a summer break, Children’s Worship for 1-6 graders will resume on Sunday, September 6. This special worship experience will take place on the first Sunday of the month. Following the Children’s Sermon, the children will go with their leaders to the Spinks-Gurley classroom. The children, with the guidance of their leaders, will serve as worship leaders. They will lead in scripture readings, ushering responsibilities, prayers, litanies, and more. Their focus will follow the lectionary and seasons of the church year.

 Worship Bags for Children

Worship Bags for Children

Children have a place in worship. Through worship participation, children are learning. They are learning how to pray. They are learning to sing the hymns of faith. They are learning the stories of God and of God’s people. Our sanctuary is a welcoming place for children, and we want them to feel a part of the worship experience. To that end, we also need to accept that children participate in worship in ways that are different from adults. Sometimes children need to keep their fingers busy in order to absorb what is happening around them, or they need to have a visual to help them understand a concept.

Highland Hills is now offering a worship bag for our youngest worshipers. Each child will have their own re-useable Highland Hills tote bag filled with a weekly worship guide designed just for them plus crayons, pencils, a sketch pad, and a coloring prayer card.

Children may choose to take their bags home and bring them to church each week, or they may leave the bags at church to pick up each time they come to worship. The bags will be available on Sundays in the Narthex and the main hallway of the church.

It is our hope that these bags will be a meaningful way for parents to guide their children in worship, and help our children know that their presence is wanted and welcomed among us.
