Once again we are joining with Temple Emanuel and collecting school supplies for Moore Elementary Students. We will need the supplies by August 1 so they can be distributed to families in the food pantry before school starts. You may bring your items to the yellow school bus in the Gallery Hall. Needed: wide-rule paper, pencils, erasers, washable markers, 24-pack cray-ons, glue sticks, pencil pouch/box, wide-rule spiral / composition notebooks, 5 subject notebooks & 3x5 index cards for 5th grade, 2-pocket folders, 1” binders, backpack (NO wheels), hand sanitizer, quart /gallon zip-lock bags, & tissues for classrooms.

City with Dwellings (the organization which runs the overflow homeless shelters in the winter) has ways we can support them in the non-winter months. They are in need of volunteers at their Day Resource Center, Tuesdays and Thursdays 9–11:00 a.m. They also need donations of white crew socks, bottled water, pre-packaged snack foods and bus passes.

Summer Overnights at Samaritan Inn: 6:15 p.m. till 7:00 a.m., Saturday, July 22 and Friday, August 25. We would love to have six Highlanders sign up each night. Sign up in the Gallery Hall, or contact Steve Zorn or Debbie Layman.

Loving the Questions: A Summer Sermon Series, July 2–September 3. Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People? Who Will Be Saved? How Do We Live with Hope in a Fearful World? How Do I Know God’s Will for My Life? These are but a few of the questions with which people of faith have wrestled for generations, and we’re planning to wrestle with such questions as these this summer at Highland. See Highlights, p. 3, for details.
