Updates on Hospital and Death Notifications
With the many changes in medical care due to changing hospital policies, please call
Highland to make the staff aware that you or a family members is at the
hospital. Each hospital operates differently, but most no longer contact
churches about members being patients. Call the church office and ask for Donna 717-569-2651. When a death occurs for a Highland member, it is our policy to contact the family to request a notification email blast be sent to the entire congregation. If the
family chooses not to give permission to us, then we do not send out the email notification. Funeral homes also no longer notify us that our members have died, so it is important for family members of the deceased to notify Highland of the death.
The Library will be open for four hours a day, from 10:00AM-2:00PM. There should be no more than four people in the library at a time and it is asked that time in the Library be limited to one hour other than for the librarian. Any returned book will be placed in a “Returns” basket and quarantined for seven says before being returned to circulation. Hand sanitizer should be used between the handling of books being reviewed. The library will be used as a place for the exchange of books or other informational materials and not a place for reading and studying at this time.
