French Camp Bake Sale

French Camp Bake Sale: Highlands Ladies are helping to provide homemade baked goods for French Camp’s Harvest Festival on October 8!  French Camp, a Christian boarding school and home in central Mississippi for young people from broken or troubled backgrounds, is one of Highland’s mercy ministry partners. Your baked goods will help raise funding for this important ministry!

The children love these items that are just their size!  All larger items such as cakes, pies and other baked goods simply need to be packaged in a Ziplock or other disposable container.  Please sign up here so that we’ll know how large a vehicle to use for transporting the items.  Place your baked goods on the counter in front of the Fellowship Hall between Wednesday, October 5 and Friday morning, October 7 by 10:00am.

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.
