Highland’s hymn, Look, You Saints, the Cloud of Witness, speaks of “gathering ‘round this sacred place.” We have adopted this well-loved text as your invitation to worship on Sunday, August 19, 10:30 a.m. ALL of our faith community will be in the sanctuary for one service. Gathered ’Round, we will sing favorite hymns of faith, experience a children’s story, recognize Bible Study teachers from this past year, and hear a word by Perry Dixon, Highland’s Associate Pastor to Youth and Their Families. A drawing of our stained-glass window in the baptistry will be included in the worship bulletin for those who might want to color while listening. Our regular Sunday worship schedule of 8:30, 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services will not be held on this one Sunday, August 19. Also, there will be no Bible study classes, nursery, or Worship Care for children so we can all experience worship together. Children’s books and other child-friendly activities will be available in the Commons for our youngest children accompanied by a family member, should you need space to move about more freely.
Following worship, the doors will open and everyone will be invited to picnic on the church’s greenspaces either by packing a lunch for yourself or your family or purchase lunch from “Boo Boo’s Smoke Shack” Food Truck. They’ll be serving BBQ, sides and drinks right on our lawn. We’re holding out hope for a beautiful weather day—please come and join us!
