Pastor Mike Henderson
We are given two gifts by God.
The first is the grace that brings us to him through Jesus.
The second is the opportunity to work in his field.
May you live this week with both gifts.
Go with Jesus Christ, and go in peace.
God’s peace is with us always. AMEN.

The All-Church Wednesday Tailgate
Who…The All-Church Tailgate is for people of all ages. Come alone or with your family & close friends & meet new friends, your Sunday School class and small group here.
What… The All-Church Tailgate is an opportunity to for us to come together,
eat our dinner that we bring to eat for ourselves, hang out, and catch up…all in a safe place with lots of space to spread out!
Where…Highland Park UMC back parking lot. Every other parking space will
be blocked in order to social distance while a center section will be open to
walk around and chat with friends and meet new ones! Just park in an open
space, drop the tailgate or set up your lawn chairs and break out the dinner that you brought!
When…Beginning Wednesday, September 9 @ 6pm. We will tailgate each
Wednesday, weather permitting, until we are able to begin Wednesday night programming in our new facility!
Why…This is a difficult season to meet for fellowship with loved ones and
friends or to meet new friends. Our All-Church Tailgate will give us a regular
time and place to do just that…all in a safe space and manner.
We hope to see you on Wednesdays to hang out together and celebrate
God’s goodness…who He is & what He’s done and is doing here at Highland Park!
Scriptures for September 20, 2020- Exodus 17:1-7; Psalm 78:1-4, 12-16; Philippians 2:1-13; Matthew 21:23-32
In spite of the weather, COVID-19, and many other things, the new facilities are progressing! If you have not had the opportunity to stop by the church office for a tour, please call us and we’ll be glad to schedule one. Plans were to have our Consecration of the new facilities on September 13. However, things have not quite completed so that will have to wait for a little while longer.
The new Danner Garden and Courtyard is coming along, too. When completed it will be a place where people can pray, meditate, have outdoor services, and be in God’s presence. There will be some brick paved areas, along with plants and shrubs. The pavers currently being installed are the ones from the “Pathway to Life” that ran between the church and the ATTIC Youth House. There is room for more engraved pavers in memory of honor of loved ones. If you are interested in placing one there, please contact the church office.
And thanks to the contributions of many people, the port-cochere for the front of the church is well underway! It will not only define the front of the church, but will provide a beautiful and welcoming front for the facility. The sidewalks and parking areas are being constructed now, so everyone is asked to park in the Rutledge Avenue parking lot and to enter the sanctuary through the narthex doors on that side for the next couple of weeks.
If you need help with anything from the church, please contact Andi Sauls at email@example.com, or call 843/662-1233.
