Highland’s Food Pantry Needs: For the month of January we are in need of oatmeal for our food pantry that supports Moore Elementary School families. You may place your donations in the box provided in the Gallery Hall. Thank you for your support!

On Mondays from December 4 through March 26, members and friends of Highland have the opportunity to share hospitality with some women in need in our community. We need volunteers to prepare meals, to serve as greeters, overnight volunteers, and more with the women who will stay at the City with Dwellings shelter at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church. Click here to read about the volunteer opportunities and then click on the blue-outlined button to sign up. We need those Mondays to FILL UP!

Join us as we continue to view the video series Turning Points, discovering the majestic cultures and the astonishing history of the Middle East. We will gain an informed understanding of this hugely significant region of our world. In this 36 week video study you will watch as it brings to life the conflicts, triumphs and the catastrophes that forged this extraordinary region from 622 to 1924. This series is presented by Lecturer and Middle East expert Eamonn Gearon of Johns Hopkins University. Anytime is a good time to join this fascinating study. Contact Darryl Ray for more information.

Women’s Thursday Morning Bible Study: Old Testament, 10:00–11:00 a.m. We will start back January 25.

Even if you know the Old Testament well, you will find this series helpful in learning the larger background of the ancient Near East as revealed by research in archaeology, cross-cultural studies, and comparative religion. The study includes a video segment and time for discussion. There is no homework or advance reading, so come, bring a friend, and enjoy a cup of coffee with us.
