Highland Presybyterian Church

News & Events

For the month of May we are in need of rice 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!

To honor Moms and Dads, donate diapers to the Diaper Bank of NC between Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day, May 14-June 18. See Highlights, p. 1, for details!

During the season of Eastertide, worship at Highland will be shaped by narratives from the Acts of the Apostles. We’ll share stories from Luke’s account of the risen Christ at work through the power of the Holy Spirit to form the church. We hope that you will join us as we continue to celebrate the joyous news of Easter through this entire season.

Sunday, May 21, 8:30 and 11:00 a.m.: Debbie Layman will be preaching on this sixth Sunday of Easter, guided by scriptures in Psalm 97 and Acts 16:16–34. See the bulletin here. Sunday school for all ages takes place at 9:30.   Click here for the adult class descriptions and here for the faith.net schedule. Please remember that this is the final Sunday of our two service schedule until September 10. From Memorial Day through Labor Day we will worship in one service at 10:00am.

On Sunday, May 21 following the 11:00 service the Stewardship Committee will host a conversation led by Highlanders who will share their experiences with, and motivations for, their planned giving to Highland. Please join us (refreshments will be provided!) as we learn ways we can share our generosity and love with this special place of Highland in the decades to come.

Church pictorial directories provide a helpful way for us to deepen our family ties (and to learn each other’s names). Our last directory is three years old and is out of date; we are excited that it is time for a new one! We want to make sure everyone is in our new directory. The remaining dates pictures will be taken are May 23–24. Weekday photography is 2:30–9:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. Receive your FREE pictorial directory by signing up for a time slot here!

Women's Bible Study, Thursday, May 25: we begin Adam Hamilton’s study The Call: The Life and Message of the Apostle Paul. Paul and his fellow missionaries turned the ancient world upside down by preaching a gospel of Christ's life, death, and resurrection. Travel to the early church sites and explore Paul’s conversations with the Romans, Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Thessalonians. We meet at 10:00 a.m. in the Ardmore Room in the Activity Building. Invite a friend to come! Childcare is provided if you let us know in advance. Contact Gidget for more information or to register for childcare.

Thursday, May 25, Young Adult (20s, 30s) Study Group: Our Thursday night study gatherings are offering rich fellowship and depth while we delve into new topics each week. The group meets at 8:00 p.m. at Five Points Restaurant. Contact Courtney Stevens for more information.

We need your help staffing the overnight shelter at Samaritan Inn on Friday, May 26. Please check your calendars and prayerfully consider if you can help out. Contact Debbie Layman with questions.
