Food for Fuel September 6, 2020
In September, our church will host the 10th Annual Food for Fuel Luncheon to support the Highlands Emergency Council's Emergency Fuel Fund. That fund is critical in helping many residents of Highlands heat their homes through the winter months. One of the things that is exciting about this venture is the breadth of involvement that support this event. First Presbyterian's Mission Ministry Team partnered with the Congregational Care Ministry Team hosts the event. This event is widely embraced by this congregation and the Highlands community and takes place in Coleman Hall from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Come support the Highlands Emergency Council, invite your friends and family, enjoy a delicious meal and share your blessings as we warm the homes of others. Call the church office at 828-526-3175 for more information.

Empty Bowls October 4, 2020
The Empty Bowls project is an international effort to fight hunger. Guests are asked to purchase a hand-thrown bowl to be filled with soup and then kept as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. All proceeds will benefit the Food Pantry of Highlands, a collaborative project between The International Friendship Center and the Highlands United Methodist Church. The soup bowls are hand-thrown by volunteer potters at the Bascom Center for the Visual Arts. There will also be a silent auction of special bowls created and donated by professional potters at the Bascom. Call the church office at 828-526-3175 for more information.
