Cross Display

Cross Display

As we turn our attention to the season of Lent, we are creating a display of crosses in the main hallway of our church. The table cloth that was created last year at our Ash Wednesday covers the table where the crosses are located. If you have a cross that you would like to add to the display, feel free to place it there. The crosses will remain there through Easter Sunday.

CAMPCREATE-graphic.png

The Preschool and Children’s Ministry Committee is excited to announce that something new for children is coming to Highland Hills Baptist Church this summer! We are recreating Vacation Bible School into an interactive week of Bible study, creative experiences, and tons of fun. It will be new! It will be different! It will be an opportunity for our HHBC children and children from our Macon community to experience the love of God and the joy of friendship.

Camp Create is the name of this week-long experience. It will be held on Monday – Friday, June 3-7 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. with a Celebration Sunday morning event on June 9. The theme for this year’s camp is Better Together. During this week children will learn about the love and care it takes to be a good neighbor and the joy of working together to share and experience God’s love.

Local artists, teachers, musicians, and chefs will be on our campus to guide our children in hands-on creating. Each day of the week will have a different creative focus consisting of: Hand Lettering and Drawing, Cooking, Science, Painting, and Drama. Each day there will be Bible study, worship, music and games. The week will culminate in a Sunday Celebration that will take place during our morning worship service and be followed by lunch and an art gallery display.

Reserve this date on your calendar. Registration is required.
