HARI Volunteers Needed
We really need your help with our Afghan families to lend them a hand in getting acclimated to our culture. We would like to sponsor more families but without more volunteers we will not be able to do that. We need help with transportation, teaching English classes and advising on the job search front. We are also looking to introduce “Minna,” the 21 year old college student, to more young people. Please contact either Lynn Dawson or Cyndi DeLong if you would like to learn more. It is a great way to serve God and meet some wonderful people!
Reopening Task Force Updates
- We will continue the single service at 10 am for now. We will not restart the Informal service at this time.
- All food and beverage service around worship will be suspended.
- We would ask that folks spread out as much as possible if attending worship. We will retape the pews for every other row seating if needed.
- All those attending activities in the church, including meetings and Upward basketball should be masked at all times.
Our stewardship theme this year is “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” During this challenging year of living in a pandemic, we couldn’t think of a better topic. Our hope is that all of us will focus our daily prayers, offering God our sincere and heartfelt thanks for giving His great faithfulness to us, especially in these times of abundant need.
Throughout these challenging times, Highland has remained the “light on the hill” for all those in our community, as we share the love of Jesus Christ with others in need. We hope that you will make a faithful pledge to enable the dynamic ministries at work at Highland. May God bless you with His faithfulness as you seek His guidance. Thank you.

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.
