Introducing a New Podcast by Pastor Joseph Wheat

Listen here.

Especially during the COVID 19 time, I have wanted to find a way to give more interaction for our members with each other. This podcast is being launched so we can connect with Scripture, hear each other’s stories, learn about ministry, and receive practical help for the Christian life. My hope is also that folks considering Highlands will connect with this conversational presentation of who we are. It’s called the SERMON AMP! Podcast – because the first five or so minutes are what I call an “amplification” of a sermon from Highlands. The total time for each episode is right at 30 minutes. A new episode will be released every week either on Monday or Tuesday.


Support World Missions by giving to Faith Promise

Please consider a Faith Promise pledge to support world missions.

Faith Promise for world missions is a specific amount of money or goods that you are willing to promise to give – in faith that God will provide it. It is an amount over and above the tithe. At the time you make a Faith Promise, the source of this provision may be unknown to you. This is a commitment to give by faith, based on God’s promises, expecting Him to enable you to give it. Please prayerfully consider how God may be calling you to participate in world missions through Faith Promise this year.

To make a faith promise online, please visit missions.highlandspca.org.

Faith Promise goals for 2021 include:


First Things First ~ February 2021

by Bradford Mercer

I took this photo of Stumbling Stones (Stolpersteine) in Berlin, 2017. The Schneebaum family was deported to Auschwitz concentration camp in 1943. “HIER WOHNTE” means “here lived.” JG is the birth date. “ERMORDET” means “murdered.

Last Wednesday, January 27, was International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The day marked 76 years since the liberation of Auschwitz, the largest concentration camp established by Nazi Germany.

Several years ago Cindy and I came face to face with a sobering reminder of Auschwitz—Stumbling Stones (Stolpersteine). During our stay in Berlin we noticed small brass plates embedded in the walkways all over town. Inscribed on each one of these Stumbling Stones (also called Stumbling Blocks) is a name and date of a victim of Nazi persecution. You will notice in the photograph above that the Schneebaum family was deported to Auschwitz in 1943, where they were murdered. Initiated in 1992 by the German artist, Gunter Demnig, the Stolpersteine project’s goal is to commemorate individuals at exactly their last place of residency or work. There are currently over 13,000 Stumbling Stones in more than 280 countries.
