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.

Our summer missions series called “Terrific Tuesdays” is in full swing. Each Tuesday in June, we are welcoming children from the neighborhood and sharing wonderful fellowship with the Kings Park Neighborhood Association leaders. Continue to pray for our connections with these neighbors. We can always use more volunteers. Please email Erin Hall here or Emily Brumley here to volunteer.

Children’s Mission Recognition Service

Children’s Mission Recognition Service

Wednesday, May 2

During the middle of the week, many of our Highland Hills families take a break from their hectic schedules to attend choir and mission classes. Our children find joy in gathering with their friends for this time of spiritual enrichment.

Mission classes are an important part of our Preschool and Children’s Ministry programs. Our children have an enthusiasm for learning about new countries and the work of missionaries in those countries. They also enjoy the occasional sampling of foods from these countries, the fun of a great art project, and of course the thrill of a competitive game of Four Square.

As we close out another year of mission classes at Highland Hills, we invite you to join us as our Mission Friends and Children on Mission classes share the highlights of their year. This service will take place\ on Wednesday, May 2, at 6:30 pm in our Great Room. Come and hear their stories and be inspired by their enthusiasm for telling the story of Jesus to a world that is waiting to hear.
