Love Builds: The Big Reveal

Building Love LogoWhen was the last time you saw a child’s eyes widen out of wonder, surprise, and excitement? Come rejoice with us at our Renovation Reveal as we celebrate the way Love Builds at Highland Baptist Church this Saturday, June 7, at 3:00 p.m.

At 3:00 p.m., all are invited to the front lawn where we will bless the space and cut the ribbon to officially open our new space!  The space will be open 3:00-6:00 p.m. with tours led by Highland’s youth, where you will be able to hear from Highland’s Implementation Committee, who will share stories and details about our newly renovated space. Families with children will follow a scavenger hunt that will lead them to discover their new classroom and orient themselves to the new space. Teachers will be present until 5:00 p.m. Doors open to the wider community at 4:30 p.m.outside construction2 EDITED

Highland Baptist Church has been under construction since June 2013 with a major, long-term investment in our community called Building Love. Please come and see the newly-renovated space for Children and Youth, along with changes to other parts of our building which is used by a wide array of groups that enhance our community. We transformed the second floor of our 1905 and 1953 space and created contemporary areas for education and community building. We also added a new entry and landscaping that retains the church’s historic character, while making it more attractive, user-friendly, and earth-friendly.
