Micah Project Schools

Micah Project Schools

Gloria Marshall and Kam Cook provided a salad bar lunch for the staff at Martin Luther King Elementary School during their post-planning on Tuesday, May 28th. Mrs. Bush, the MLK Teacher of the Year, was most appreciative of the gift certificate HHBC gave her. The American Market Association reports the average teacher spends $500.00 - $1,000.00 out of pocket for basic school supplies. The Communities in Schools found that more than 90% of teachers in lower-income schools have to buy school supplies for students whose parents can’t afford even the basics. MLK has one of the highest rates of poverty in Bibb County. MLK teachers and staff were given a questionnaire asking how HHBC might help next year with out-of-pocket expenses. They were also given the opportunity to provide a Wish List (materials, equipment or assistance) to better equip them to teach. Mrs. Chiquita Glover, Coordinator of Volunteer Services at MLK, said she and others on the MLK staff will attend HHBC sometime during the summer to show their appreciation for our support this past year. Please give them a warm welcome.

Micah Project: Schools

We celebrate as another year of tutoring with Martin Luther King Elementary school has come to an end for the school year. We will offer Teacher Appreciation gifts to the teachers at this partnership school and develop a “wish list” of items from the teachers for next year.

Micah Project: Housing

We are invited to participate in an exciting week of service with Rebuilding Macon in Kings Park. This organization is hosting a week-long event in June and would love some help. Rebuilding Macon will welcome teens from across the Southeast to work on roofing, painting and trash removal in Kings Park neighborhood. GA Power and local high schools will also be participating. Any skilled adults or high schoolers from HHBC are welcome to volunteer at these sites, 8:00 am - 3:00 pm, June 24 - 28. Please email Erin Hall for more information.

Micah Project Neighborhoods

HHBC is happy to continue our relationship with our neighbors. The Shirley Hills Neighborhood Association and the North Highlands Neighborhood Association will join together for a gathering with Highland Hills and Historic Macon. These neighbors are coming together in a neighborhood historic home on May 16 to meet each other, share refreshments, and hear how we might collaborate for “the good of the city.” (Jeremiah 29:7) We look forward to seeing what God can do through neighbors knowing one another better.

Boston Butt Fundraiser for Youth Missions

Boston Butt Fundraiser for Youth Missions

You can support the youth's summer mission trip to Passport Furman in Greenville, South Carolina, by purchasing a ticket for a Boston Butt!

Jim Welch from Welch's Country Smokehouse on Bass Road will cook the Boston Butts (no turkeys). Tickets will be available for $35 ($37 when purchased online includes a processing fee) through Wednesday, December 12. You can purchase tickets from the youth, online and in the church office. You must pay for your tickets when you receive them. The tickets are good until April 21, 2019.

The sale ends on Wednesday, December 12. You will simply call the phone number on the ticket at least 48 hours before you want your Boston Butt(s) and they will be ready for pick up at Welch’s Country Smokehouse at 1687 Bass Road (be mindful of business hours in your planning).

Don’t miss out on supporting our youth and enjoying a delicious smoked Boston Butt. Since you can wait and pick up the meat whenever you like, it will make your holiday meals quick and easy. And of course, the tickets also make great gifts!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Highland Hills did it again! You opened your heart to the needs of others and donated lots and lots of school supplies for Kings Park. Thank you for your generosity.

Now it's time to help with another need. During the months of October and November we will collect canned goods and staples for the homeless and others in need. Collection boxes are located in the hallways near the parlor and elevator.

Our Risk-Taking Missions Initiative calls us to practice transformational love for our city. We support local missions “Micah Projects” such as Loaves and Fishes of Macon. Loaves and Fishes is a ministry that provides for many needs for people experiencing homelessness and poverty. Through your tithes and offerings, our missions budget supports the monthly cost, about $60, to provide sack lunches to these neighbors in need. Classes and groups from children to adults pack the sack lunches each month. Different individuals deliver them on the first Tuesday of each month. See Emily Brumley to volunteer to deliver Loaves and Fishes meals.
