Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all Highlands members, attenders and friends!

There will be NO SUNDAY SCHOOL this Sunday, December 27. Worship is at the regular time (10 a.m.). The next two Sundays are Christmas services, the third and ten days of Christmas.

Christmas Trivia - The Christmas Tree has its origins in the Middle Ages, when a "Paradise tree" was hung with apples on the Feast of Adam and Eve, December 24.

"Oh God, you have caused the holy night to shine with the brightness of the true Light: Grant that we, who have known the mystery of that Light on earth, may also enjoy him perfectly in heaven; where with you and the Holy Spirit he lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen" The Divine Hours, 2000.
