Please mark your calendars next year’s retreat at Highland:

September 18-20, 2020.  The decision to move retreat to September was made by CLT with input from the congregation as well as the committees and commissions who host our annual retreat.  Please be in touch with Katie Maust (special events committee) if you have questions.

Fellowship Meal Reminder – Each family is asked to bring a main dish & a salad, vegetable side dish or dessert to share. Hospitality will provide coffee & drinks. Bring your hot dishes in crock pots or bake your dish & bring it hot & we will keep it warm in the warmer.  Also, a reminder to the elderly folks in attendance that you do not need to bring any food to fellowship meals. We love to have you there & know that cooking can be a challenge at this stage of life!

PRAYER INSERT INFORMATION: Holding one another up in prayer is an integral part of our life together as disciples of Christ. If you have prayer requests that you would like to have included in the weekly insert, please contact Pastor Ervin, Pastor Bonnie, or Pastor Sarah by Thursday at noon to have those items added. Our practice is to leave requests in for three consecutive weeks or until the event or situation has happened or resolved, whichever comes first.
