Wednesday Night Programming for Children
Our Wednesday evening programming begins a new year each August, and we are ready for the sounds of children busy with play—a child’s way of learning new skills, connecting with their peers, and learning of God’s love through music and activities.
Carol Choir (3’s 4’s & young 5’s), Room 203, 6:00-7:15 p.m. Musical instruction for the young child through singing, movement and playing of instruments. Mission time with stories of the world in which we live and time to discover together how to care for God’s world and how to share God’s love with everyone, because God loves us.
Choristers Choir (K-5th Grade), Children’s Commons, Rooms 201 and 202, 6:00-7:15 p.m. Musical activities involving movement, speech, singing, literacy, and playing of instruments drawing from folk songs, hymns, scripture, and children’s anthems.

November 28 and December 5
The Courage to Cherish As we end this calendar year at Highland Baptist Church, we are going to take two Wednesday evenings to ask some process questions: What have we had to let go of this year? What does it mean to live in this interim time? 2019 will hold a lot of new life for Highland. We will complete our journey with the Center for Congregational Health. The Pastor Search Committee will be in the full swing of finding a new pastor. Much will be revealed by the year end of 2019. In order to be ready to receive change in the coming year, our Deacon Body will lead a two-week class on November 28 and December 5 in Fellowship Hall. Our deacons will teach material from Managing Transitions: Making the Most out of Change which will invite conversation around the table. How do you we cherish Highland Baptist Church? We cherish our church together through conversations about what has been, what will be, and what is to come! See you on November 28!
Cloud of Witnesses: Stories from Saints-In-Process Highland’s sanctuary is filled with saints—the ones in the stained-glass windows who have completed the race and the ones in the pews who are still in process. When we assume saints to be perfect people, we miss the truth they have to share. Saints are the ones who wonder if God is up to something and step out in humility and boldness to share their glimpses of the divine. Story-telling by these “Saints-in-Process” makes God visible for the church. Bob Cunningham will facilitate a conversation with three from our congregation who will share their faith journey.
