Hey Highlands Family,
WOW!! Just a quick note of thanks for all the people you continue to bring to a Highlands Campus. Because you have been faithful to bring your “JUST ONES”, look how God has responded to your obedience!! We had an overall increase in attendance of 46% for this past weekend!! In 2014, we had 2910 people attend in total at all of our locations. This past weekend, we had 4235 people attend! That is an increase of 1325 people!!!!! The best part of the whole weekend - 8 people accepted Christ, and 3 people made their faith public through baptism! Only God could do this!!
I had the opportunity to visit our BRAND NEW WISE CAMPUS last weekend, and it was AWESOME!! 167 People in Attendance!! If you have unchurched friends in WISE COUNTY, invite them to be a part of the Highlands family at Wise!
Celebrate Recovery now meets at our Bristol Campus on Tuesday nights and is seeing growth with 37 more people attending this past Tuesday than in 2014. They had a total of 97 people there!!! If you have a hurt, habit, or hang-up that you would like to have victory over, please consider attending CR!
THIS WEEKEND, I kick off a BRAND NEW SERIES called FACETIME!! Let’s face it, we all waste way too much time. Our faces are constantly glued to a television, a computer, or a smart phone. We spend our days liking things on Facebook and our evenings catching up on our favorite shows on Netflix. We go to bed with an iPhone in our hand, and it’s the first thing we grab when we wake up. BUT WHAT IF WE SPEND OUR FACETIME ON WHAT REALLY MATTERS? How much different would our lives be? So, come this weekend as we explore coming face to face with what matters most! This will be a great series to invite your family and friends to come along with you!
One last thought! Being Superbowl Sunday, almost everyone will be watching the BIG GAME. Many of you will invite friends over to watch the game. I hope you have a great time together!! These are people you enjoy being with and spending time together. Maybe, just ask the Lord sometime Sunday evening as you are enjoying time with your friends and family if this could be your future small group. Wouldn’t it be great to have people you love and enjoy being with growing closer to God? With our free Right Now Media app, we have the teaching aspect covered for you. All you have to do is be a host and find a place to get together. At Highlands, we believe God would have us grow larger and smaller at the same time. On the weekend, we continue to grow larger, but during the week, we grow smaller by encouraging you to get involved in a small group. I hope you will consider this challenge.
