August is already here…and is going to be a great month at Highpoint! There are many ways for you to connect and grow this month, and I hope you can join us for some of the following:
1. Family Pool Party. Join us for an end of summer family pool party this Saturday, August 3rd, at the Veteran’s Park Pool. We have the entire pool reserved for Highpoint from 9:30-11:30am, so come and join us and get to know someone new.
2.Missions Sunday. Following the pool party on Saturday, please make sure to attend services on Sunday, August 4th for our Missions Sunday! We will have our dear missionary in town to speak, and will also feature some local missions where our Highpoint families serve.

4.Stephen Ministry Training. If you are someone who would like to serve others by walking with them through a tough time, being a good listener, and offering biblical support, then Stephen Ministry may be an area where you could thrive! Our training course is 15 weeks long, begins on Tuesday, August 20th, and will help provide the tools you need to be the person that can truly make a difference in the lives of those who are dealing with temporary struggles.

With this course, “you are only 9 weeks away from an extraordinary marriage!” This course begins on Sunday, August 25th, and is for people who are engaged (but with a wedding date within the next 12 months), or people who have been married for 75 years! This course will help you thrive and have a more fulfilling marriage than you ever thought possible. Sign up in the lobby in the coming weeks, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. GriefShare class begins. Highpoint and New Hope Baptist are again partnering to offer the GriefShare course, a loving, caring environment for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Whether the loss was recent or has occurred in years past, it is often necessary to process the feelings and to connect with others who understand, while learning to experience joy again. This course begins on Monday, August 12th, from 6:30-8:30pm at New Hope Baptist Church. You may register online at www.griefshare.org, or by emailing Linda Hicks, at email@example.com.
7. New Bible Studies on Sunday morning. We also have 2 new Bible studies starting in August. Starting this week, our 11:00 bible study in room 122 will begin a new curriculum, titled “The Prodigal God”. All are welcome to join this thriving group of adults.
On Sunday, August 11, our 9:30am ladies class will have a kickoff brunch to introduce the new study on Romans that will be held in room 122. Come join the ladies for brunch and fellowship, then start with the new study! Books will be provided.
I hope you take this opportunity to try something new, to connect with your church family, and to grow in your relationship with Christ.
