Highland Hills has a wonderful tradition of featuring all age groups and genders leading in worship throughout the year. On Sunday, May 5th, the youth of Highland Hills will be leading us in worship. They will sing, pray, read scripture, play instruments, and speak. During the service, the graduating high school seniors will be recognized and presented with a gift.

Our graduating class of 2019 includes Trent Brown, Howard High School. Ben Browne, Jones County High School. Trey Bumgardner, Bobby McCord, and Drake Miscall, Stratford Academy. Ke’ousha Carswell, Central High School. Eliot Gammons, First Presbyterian Day School. Christian Sims, Mt. De Sales Academy.

Youth Sunday at Highland Hills is May 5!

Youth Sunday at Highland Hills is May 5!

The youth of Highland Hill will be leading in worship on Sunday, May 5. They will be doing everything from the Invocation to taking up the offering to preaching and singing in the choir. During the service, we will also be recognizing the High School graduates and presenting them with a gift.

Following the service, the Youth are having a Cinco de Mayo lunch in the Great Room for all of the Youth and their families as we celebrate our graduates.

Youth need to let Cass or Elizabeth know if they are coming for lunch by Wednesday, May 1 so Laura Ann can be prepared. Make plans to be in worship on May 5 as the Youth lead us.

Pancakes with the Pastors

Pancakes with the Pastors

Shrove Tuesday, the last day before the season of Lent, is a day for pancakes. Historically, families needed to use up their stored supplies of flour, butter, eggs, and milk because those supplies wouldn’t be used during the fasting of Lent. Instead of letting them go to waste, the solution was to make pancakes!

Preschoolers, children, youth, and their parents are invited to enjoy Pancakes with the Pastors on Tuesday, March 5, at the home of Cass and Ruth DuCharme, 1640 Rivoli Lane in Macon. Drop in between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. for some pancakes and bacon with your friends. The staff will also share a devotional guide for each family to take home to use during the season of Lent.

Full Court Press Family Retreat

Full Court Press Family Retreat

Saturday, February 23, 11am

Playing basketball requires stamina, commitment, and practice. It is a team sport where teammates work together and coaches guide players to victory. Maybe there are some lessons that we can learn from basketball that also apply to the practice of faith.

 Families of preschoolers, children, and youth are invited to join us on center court – that is Highland Hills – for a day retreat focused on faith and family. We will look at how we can pass on faith to our children and make sure their head is in the game. We will “enter his courts with praise” as we spend time worshipping together. Finally, we will truly experience the game of basketball as we end the afternoon cheering on the Mercer Bears from the private box at Hawkins Arena. 

 Full Court Press Family Retreat will take place on Saturday, February 23 beginning at 11:00 a.m. This retreat is for preschoolers, children, youth, and parents. During the retreat, there will be times for the different age groups to engage in separate spiritual formation and times when we will come together for an intergenerational experience.

 The retreat will begin at Highland Hills at 11:00 a.m. Lunch will be provided, and there will be childcare for preschoolers. The retreat will end at 3:00 p.m. when we will make our way to Mercer for the 4:00 p.m. basketball game. There is no cost for the retreat, but sign-up is required. Call the church office or sign-up below to make your reservations by Wednesday, February 20.

Wednesday Nights for Children and Youth

Wednesday Nights for Children and Youth

Wednesday evenings at Highland Hills are busy days for our preschoolers, children, and youth. Our teachers keep our students engaged in wonderful learning opportunities that heighten and enrich their growing faith.

During the five o’clock hour our preschoolers, children, and youth have choir rehearsals. While our preschoolers have fun learning and playing with musical activities, our children and youth are busy preparing for upcoming performances. Our children will begin work on their Spring presentation and an anthem to be sung on Palm Sunday. The Youth Choir will be getting ready for Winter Jubilate. They will spend the weekend of January 19-20 preparing songs that will be presented at Highland Hills on Sunday, January 20 at 6:00 p.m. All preschoolers, children, and youth are welcome to add their voices to our choirs as they resume on Wednesday, January 9.

After a delicious Family Night Supper meal, the learning continues as our preschoolers and children participate in Mission Friends and Children on Mission. Our creative teachers guide these young hearts to explore the joy of sharing God’s love through ministry and missions. They learn about the work of missionaries and have opportunities to be missionaries themselves as they join our church in various mission projects.

At 6:30 p.m. our youth fill the Youth Room with laughter and conversation as they explore God’s word for them in Bible Study led by our youth intern, Elizabeth O’Dell.

There is a place for you and your family on Wednesday nights at Highland Hills as we all learn and grow in faith together.
