October 23rd, from 4-6PM is our annual Trunk-R-Treat! Kids in costumes, trunks decorated to the max, hayrides, train rides, and music. This is an event that will be fun for all ages. We need you to decorate your trunk. We need as many trunks as we can get. Please let us know if you will be decorating a trunk so we can assign you a spot. Sign-up below with the link below.

We also need candy. LOTS of candy. Please bring your candy to the Trunk or Treat kiosk in The Commons starting in October.

See You At The Pole

This event is a worldwide prayer movement that encourages students to gather one morning before school and pray together. It is something HYG always encourages students to be a part of because it helps students see their campus as a place to share their faith.

This prayer time is happening this Wednesday, Sept. 28 and may look different at each school.They might join a large group that is praying together around their school flag pole, or simply gather with a few friends at their locker before the first bell, or pray with a parent in the car before they get dropped off.

Regardless of how they do it, we want every HYG student to take some time this Wednesday and pray before school starts.Our hope is they will pray before school that morning and then join us that night to worship together at The RISING.

Educator Appreciation Night

We have students at over 25 different schools across the Mid-South, and they are filled with amazing people that bless our students every day.

We want to help our HYG students return the favor.

We have asked HYG students to personally invite a teacher, coach, or administrator from their school to come enjoy a meal and The RISING with us this Wednesday, Sept. 28 @ 6:30pm.

Students and guests will enjoy free food, some friendly competition, and some worship together.

We want these special guests to know that Highland is for them and they are not alone as they love our students daily.

Generosity Path

We want to excel in the grace of giving because it is a tangible way to demonstrate the priority of God in our lives. The Bible talks about money and possessions more than any other subject. As part of our ongoing discipleship, we want to be good and faithful stewards. The hope is that all of us would become cheerful, sacrificial givers who honor God and build up the church. Generosity is a journey.

We’ve identified three stages on the journey to help guide us.

1. Give something. If you’re not giving to the church yet, decide to simply start giving any amount. Make it a habit. Experience the blessings and joy of giving.

2. Give a recurring gift. Become a consistent giver. Set up an online recurring gift or make a plan to give regular donations.

3. Give sacrificially. Consider how you can increase your giving through more sacrifice. Make giving a larger percentage of your budget, or give non-cash gifts of stocks, property, etc.
