HIGHLAND SCHEDULE

Today 

We hope you’ll join us for worship today at 10am. Shane begins a new sermon series today called “Lost in Translation.” We’re also honoring Dickie Porche for his 23 years of service at Highland. If you are unable to join us in person, the service will be livestreamed. 

Bible classes meet at 9am. Join us in the Atrium at 8:45am for donuts, coffee, fellowship, and a look at today’s class offerings for Highland Student Ministry and Adult Faith. Each week we have 2-3 intergenerational classes available as well as many of the regular class gatherings.

Children’s Ministry classes will meet in their regular locations. For more information about children’s classes, please check at the Info Desk in the north foyer of the children’s wing. 

We are not passing communion trays at this time. Please remember to pick up communion elements as you enter the worship center.

This Wednesday

      • Freedom Fellowship, located at 941 Chestnut, will share a meal from 6-6:30pm, and worship will begin at 7pm. Masks are encouraged for unvaccinated adults, teens and children.

      • Join us for His Kids Ministry at the Prayer Wall at 6:30pm on Highland’s main Facebook page. It’s not just for kids, and we’d be honored to worship with you and write your prayer on the wall.
