Highland Church of Christ Weekly Bulletin
WEEK OF SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 2021
Order of Worship
Shane continues the sermon series called “Kind of a Big Deal: A Church Called Forward.” The auditorium will be open this morning if you choose to worship in person at Highland at 10am, and the livestream also begins at 10.
We strongly encourage those who are 65 years or older, have underlying health conditions, or serve as a caregiver for someone at risk, to join us from home via the livestream.
Highland at the Park will meet at 3pm in Festival Gardens at Nelson Park. A multi-age outdoor children’s class begins at 2:30pm before the worship service begins. Today’s forecast calls for a chance of rain, and we will not meet at the Park if it is raining. Watch your email for an update in case of inclement weather.
- To access the livestream go to youtube.com/highlandabilene. You can also visit our Facebook page.

- This Wednesday
- Worship services and grab and go meals will resume on February 3 at Freedom Fellowship.
- Grace Fellowship will distribute grab and go meals from 6-6:30pm and host an outside time of prayer. Masks encouraged, and social distancing will be practiced.
- Join us at the Prayer Wall at 6:30pm, live on Highland’s main Facebook page. It’s not just for kids, and we’d be delighted to write your prayer on the wall.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE AND HIGHLAND CARES MINISTRY
The weeks of social and physical distancing have made life challenging for many of us. Our elders and ministers know there are many physical, emotional and spiritual needs among our members, and the Highland Cares Ministry offers numerous options if you need help or want to volunteer to help. Go to www.highlandchurch.org/connect for more information. Our Share the Joy fund is also available to assist Highland families in financial need. For questions about Share the Joy funds, contact Dickie Porche,
Highland Counseling Center -
The Highland Counseling Center is available for individual, couple and family therapy through a HIPAA approved, confidential online platform.

HIGHLAND FOOD PANTRY
At Highland, we believe in generously sharing God’s love and peace.
The Highland Food Pantry is an important part of our ministry in the Abilene community by providing food for our neighbors during this uncertain time. COVID-19 has changed how the pantry operates, and curbside service has been the method we’ve used during the past 43 weeks.
If you are interested in serving as a volunteer at the Pantry, work shifts are available. Click on the link below to sign up for a time.
RESTORE THE WORLD
