Can you Imagine Holding a Tarantula?

The Pawley's Reptile experience in KidsROCK on Sunday September 11th was a huge success. Over 20 children came. It was a great time. Thank you to all the Highviewers that supported this event by inviting children and by praying.

Celebrating God's Story for Joel and Louanne

Last spring Joel Bennett accepted a position at Life Spring Community Church as the Director of their Launch 2.0 initiative. This will require that both Joel and Louanne give their full attention to ministering there.

We want to bless them in this new adventure, excited to watch how God continues to write their story. As part of that blessing, following the service on September 25th, we will have time of commissioning for Joel and Louanne.

A New Season of Small Groups!

It’s time to start thinking about small groups again for the season. There were a few groups running last year that will start up again. There are also one or two new groups starting to take shape. We want all of you whether you were part of a group last year or not to have the chance to sign up.

Erin will be connecting with group leaders and providing opportunities for new members to sign up very soon. So at this time, we’re asking all small groups to postpone beginning a new curriculum until this happens. But this doesn’t mean that groups can’t start getting together. Just hold off on beginning a new curriculum or study.

Welcome Highview's New Intern: Erin Wildsmith

Erin Wildsmith has began an internship at Highview. She is finishing her last year of the MDiv Program at McMaster Seminary. As a church we have been blessed to have her and her husband Dave with us! Erin will be embracing the role of Small Group Director. As the Small Group Director she will be co-ordinating the groups, and will be a resource and support to the group leaders.

Thanksgiving Service - Oct. 9th

Many of us will be stuffing turkeys this Thanksgiving, and Highview is no exception! On Thanksgiving Sunday, Oct 9th join us for our Thanksgiving service at 10:30am. We’ll be coming together to worship God, give thanks, and be the hands and feet of Jesus.

For the last half of our time together we will be making it our goal to Stuff a Turkey with canned food by going door to door to collect non-perishable food items for people in need.

In preparation for this we’re having a Contest! Your challenge is to take a garbage can preferably on wheels and create a one of a kind turkey. You can submit your turkey as a family, group, or individual. The more turkeys we have to stuff the better. Creativity and fun are musts in this competition. We have some supplies set aside downstairs that you can use if you need them.

Bring your turkey with you on Sunday, Oct. 2nd and we’ll announce the winner.
What a great way for us as a church to have fun and show our appreciation to God and love for our community at Thanksgiving.
