Worship Services Resuming -
Sunday, May 31, was our first Sunday back in Church. Many changes and precautions were in place.
God in Your mercy, please hear our prayers.
Operation Shoebox - Online this year!
Bless Children Around
the World Without Leaving Home
Now more than ever, children need great joy! You can give boys and girls in need a tangible expression of God’s love through a gift-filled shoebox packed from your computer or handheld device. In just a few clicks, you can select toys and other fun items to include as well as a letter and photo to delight the heart of a child. After we pack and ship shoeboxes like yours overseas, local believers share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children as they distribute them. As a result, families are reached, new churches are started, and communities are transformed. It all begins with you. Pack a shoebox online today!

Hungry People This Thanksgiving
In Western Pennsylvania, many people less fortunate than us will go hungry this Thanksgiving. With your help, they will be able to receive all of the ingredients for a nice Thanksgiving dinner.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, The City Rescue Mission has a greater than usual need for donations. We are asking our congregation to join with us in helping the City Rescue Mission meet this need. Below is a chart with 5 successive Sundays listed and accompanying food items for that week.
With your help in sharing these blessings, we can help many people have a truly thankful Thanksgiving meal.
|October 18||Rice and Pasta|
|October 25||Canned Soup and Crackers|
|November 1||Instant Potatoes and Instant Gravy|
|November 8||Pancake Mix and Syrup|
|November 15||Tea and Coffee|
We at Highland thank God for Pastor Rich. He is a preacher, a teacher, a listener, and a friend. God needed someone to care for His flock (Us) and we are so blessed to have him and Christianna.
Music Director Appreciation:
We want to thank Maura for her timeless efforts, hours, and devotion to our Music Ministry. We appreciate her beautiful musical talent and her willingness to bless us with her many gifts every Sunday.
Fall Gathering and Hayride
There was a Hayride and Fall Gathering on Friday, October 23, at the Thompson home. It was a perfect night. To ensure everyone's safety, we had hand sanitizers at each table and masks available. The tables, both inside and outside, were spaced more than six feet apart, and only six people per table. Even in these trying times, a good evening was had by all attending.
Be sure to view all of the photos from the festivities.
Payton Flannery Baptism
Logan Schweitzer Baptism
May 31st was our first day back to our Sunday Worship Service since March 15th. It was definitely a different experience with the masks on but, it felt so great to be back.
Praise the Lord! God is good!
We are all praying things will continue to improve and we will be able to continue to worship Sunday mornings in our sanctuary.
