From The Pastor


The month of November is going to be an exciting one. Not only that my favorite season of the year begins with Thanksgiving and the temperatures start to seriously cool off, but there are some great things happening this November.

First, I will be preaching a new series of messages entitled “For the Kingdom, For the Future, For the World.” This series will clarify our vision and the priorities that will guide our mission in the days ahead. Please pray with me about this. It could open up a transformative season for us.

Second, part of our “For the Kingdom, For the Future, For the World” emphasis will be a call to the Highland family to retire our remaining indebtedness by the end of this calendar year. Our debt right now stands at just less than $99,000. It will be a great day of rejoicing when we write that final check.

Sunday, November 26 will be a great day for us. I will say more about it when the new series begins on November 5, but please make your plans to be here on that day. I realize it is the Sunday immediately after Thanksgiving and some may have plans to be away still celebrating the holiday. However, I am asking you to change those plans if you have to. We need everyone here on that day.

On Sunday night, November 26, we will have a Global Missions Banquet. Please be watching all of our communication channels for details. That night we will spotlight all the points of mission engagement the Highland family has been involved with this year and we will look forward to new missional challenges. Don’t miss this great celebration.

There you have it. I told you this November was one to get excited about. I believe God is going to do some amazing things among us between now and the end of this year and I am so grateful I get to share them with you. Please be praying, be ready, and be faithful.

Your Pastor,

Bro. John Brock
