Your PNC (Pastor Nominating Committee) has made a survey available and we would like to hear from you! Ages 10 and up, and each person should fill out a survey (not just one per family). You’ll receive a link from Survey Monkey (via Ethel White) where you can go in and give us input from your computer, phone, iPad…whatever works for you. If you would like a paper copy to fill out, we’ll have these available at the back of the Sanctuary or can email it to you.
If you have not received a link, let Ethel (email@example.com) or Whitney Erickson (firstname.lastname@example.org) know, or text to Whitney at 865-518-3339, and you will be sent one. Responses should be back by July 31, 2019. Questions? Ask your PNC..Jeff Bay, Leonard Blankner, Jan Burgess, Whitney Erickson, Judith Gregory, David Kemp and Melissa Meade.
Happy Highlanders will meet at 11:30 on Tuesday, July 16 for their brown-bag lunch with Elise Eustis from the Foothills Land Conservancy speaking on this agency’s support and preservation of land in several states, not just Tennessee, throughout the Appalachian region. http://foothillsland.org/ is the website for anyone who wishes to take a sneak peek before the meeting!
Refugee Support: If you would like to help with the support of our Refugee Program, please make your check to Highland and write ‘Refugee Fund’ in the memo line. As always, thank you for your generous giving!
From YEStudio’s Cindy McDannel about the group who met for a paint party at Highland on Tuesday evening: “It was a lovely bible-study group from Madisonville! We are so blessed to have a place at Highland to paint and share art! Thank you so much!”
Highland Directory: Copies of an updated Highland Church Directory are available at the back of the sanctuary. Please contact the office with changes or if you would like to receive your copy by email.
