Announcements & Updates
Peace and Global Witness Offering
October 2 is World Communion Sunday, when we worship together with Christians throughout the world, and are fed at Christ’s table in Communion. On that day Highland will also be receiving the Peace & Global Witness Offering
A gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering enables the church to promote the Peace of Christ by addressing systems of conflict and injustice across the world. Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize up to 25% of this Offering to connect with the global witness of Christ’s peace. Mid councils retain an additional 25% for ministries of peace and reconciliation. The remaining 50% is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice in cultures of violence, including our own, through collaborative projects of education and Christian witness.

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.
