Highland’s Food Pantry Needs: For the month of October we are in need of canned beans for our food pantry that supports Moore Elementary School families. You may place your donations in the box provided in the Gallery Hall. Thank you for your support!

City with Dwellings (the organization which runs the overflow homeless shelters in the winter) has ways we can support them in the non-winter months. They are in need of volunteers at their Day Resource Center, Tuesdays and Thursdays 9–11:00 a.m. They also need donations of white crew socks, bottled water, pre-packaged snack foods and bus passes.

Our college Be An Angel program for the fall began Sunday, October 8! Once in the fall and again in spring we look to support our college students with a reminder of the love, support, and connection from their church family back home. Boards will be available in the Narthex and the Gallery Hall with more information about our students to sponsor and ideas for ways to share.

Join us Wednesday, October 25, 7:00 p.m. in the Ardmore Room as we continue to view the video series Turning Points, discovering the majestic cultures and the astonishing history of the Middle East. We will gain an informed understanding of this hugely significant region of our world. In this 36 week video study you will watch as it brings to life the conflicts, triumphs and the catastrophes that forged this extraordinary region from 622 to 1924. This series is presented by Lecturer and Middle East expert Eamonn Gearon of Johns Hopkins University. Anytime is a good time to join this fascinating study. For more information contact Darryl Ray.


Women's Thursday Morning Bible Study: October 26 - We have begun a new 24-week study on The Old Testament with a video series led by Amy-Jill Levine, professor at Vanderbilt University Divinity School. Even if you know the Old Testament well, you will find this series helpful in learning the larger background of the ancient Near East as revealed by research in archaeology, cross-cultural studies, and comparative religion. The study includes a video segment and time for discussion. There is no homework or advance reading, so come, bring a friend, and enjoy a cup of coffee with us. We meet at 10:00 a.m. in the Ardmore Room in the Activity Building. Contact Darryl Ray for more information (336-724-6303).
