Jack's Last Sundays at Highlands--Oct. 5 and Oct. 19

As we all know by now, Alisun and Jack Donovan relocated in late spring to St Petersburg, to help with day care for their two grandkids and to be of support to aging parents. Since then, Jack has been graciously and lovingly commuting to Highlands for church activities, especially Sunday mornings, as we have conducted a pastoral search. Jack has now found a congregation in St. Pete, and so his last Sundays at Highlands are upon us.

Please come share and participate in Jack's last two Sundays at Highlands—October 5, and his final Sunday at Highlands, October 19. Alisun will accompany him and will also be the Liturgist on October 19.

We invite everyone especially to attend on October 19 and the farewell celebration that will follow in the Fellowship Room. Yes, it's hard to say goodbye, but this will be a celebration of Jack and Alisun's time here and their loving contributions in building our church to what it is today, a caring community welcoming all!

Also of note, October 12 is Sharing Sunday at Highlands, facilitated by Meaghan Monoghan. We will share our Congregational Reflections and Experiences of Fall, and its place in our thoughts and lives.

Dear Friends and Members of Highlands Presbyterian,

Highlands is teaming up with Heart Pine Waldorf School for a jumble sale on October 11 from 8am to 1pm. We'd love it if you would participate! Clean out your garage and your "busy" rooms, and bring your gently used goods to donate to the cause. All donations will be greatly appreciated. Bring them to Highlands on Friday, October 10th. If you need to bring items earlier, call Beth Hartwell at 727-512-2258.

If you can donate time for set up and pricing of items, helping during the sale, or with cleanup, again, contact Beth Hartwell.

Come on out and join us as we raise funds for both organizations and have a little fun too! Hope to see you there! Spread the word! Coffee and cookies, anyone?

Highlands New Web Site

Hello World,

The folks at Highlands are pleased that you have visited our new website.

It may seem to be a mark of a growing congregation, which we are! But most of all, we have this webpage because of the kindness of Priscilla Caplan, who graciously brought us through the process. Of course now it is up to us to maintain and enrich our site with content. If you have any questions or ideas for our church, please let us know.

But in the meantime, our great and continuing thanks to Priscilla. Prayers and blessings on the work you do for the community, as we at Highlands can testify.
