Highland Family,

Mike Hare’s sister, Sherry Kobus, has tragically died. I ask that you cover him and his family in prayer. Mike and his family are originally from Texas. He is there with them now. They have asked me to come and conduct the funeral. I have agreed to do so. Therefore, I will not be with you all Sunday.

Highland, know that I love you and that I will miss being you all so much! You are in good hands though. The people that the Lord has brought together to make up Highland Community Church are a sincere, sweet, devoted and loving people. I cannot even fathom life without each of you - all glory to our Lord!

I love you, Highland,

Rob

Today's Service.

Highland has seen the Lord do so much in our midst. He has, once again, brought us to a horizon that demands us to recall His faithfulness toward us, so that we can remain confident moving forward into what He has laid before us. That leads me to our summer assignment. We are writing a Book of Remembrance. Here are the details:

Please let us know how you’d like to participate. Today’s service recounts my story of coming to Highland for the first time, then segues into a corporate charge to us all that comes from our current series through Philippians. Here is the service:

Tomorrow's Service

Highland fam, we will gather around this passage tomorrow:

27 Just one thing: Live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or am absent, I will hear about you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind,[j] working side by side for the faith that comes from the gospel, 28 not being frightened in any way by your opponents. This is a sign of destruction for them, but of your deliverance—and this is from God. 29 For it has been given to you on Christ’s behalf not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for Him, 30 having the same struggle that you saw I had and now hear that I have.
— Philippians 1:27-30


Can’t wait to see you!

Rob

Today's Service.

For me, living is Christ and dying is gain. Now if I live on in the flesh, this means fruitful work for me; and I don’t know which one I should choose. I am pressured by both. I have the desire to depart and be with Christ — which is far better — but to remain in the flesh is more necessary for you. Since I am persuaded of this, I know that I will remain and continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, so that, because of me, your confidence may grow in Christ Jesus when I come to you again.
— Philippians 1:21-26

Back to our Series Through Philippians.

Highland Family,

I will return to the pulpit this Sunday. We will continue to work through the latter part of the first chapter of Philippians. Here is the passage we will tackle:

For me, living is Christ and dying is gain. 22 Now if I live on in the flesh, this means fruitful work for me; and I don’t know which one I should choose. 23 I am pressured by both. I have the desire to depart and be with Christ—which is far better— 24 but to remain in the flesh is more necessary for you. 25 Since I am persuaded of this, I know that I will remain and continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, 26 so that, because of me, your confidence may grow in Christ Jesus when I come to you again.

27 Just one thing: Live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or am absent, I will hear about you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind,[j] working side by side for the faith that comes from the gospel, 28 not being frightened in any way by your opponents. This is a sign of destruction for them, but of your deliverance—and this is from God. 29 For it has been given to you on Christ’s behalf not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for Him, 30 having the same struggle that you saw I had and now hear that I have.
— Philippians 1:21-30


I love you so much, Highland! Serving you, in honor of our Lord, is such a joy.
