June Challenge - Midsummer Mail & Gift Exchange

Sign-up by June 13 to participate.

Do you remember how much fun we had with Merry Mail back in December? Let’s have some fun again. While some of us are back in person, some are still choosing to attend virtually for their own reason. We invite you to sign up by Sunday, June 13th to send mail or a small gift to another HOCC member. Just like with Merry Mail and Secret Santa programs you may be familiar with, when you register on our app or at hocc.org, you’ll receive one (or more if you’d like) name(s) of another HOCC-er! You’ll take the address and either send mail or drop off a small gift or package at his or her house.

You will receive your name(s) and address(es) after June 13 once sign-ups are complete. We encourage you to participate in sharing this wonderful opportunity to live out our discipleship practice of “loving” this summer season!


Volunteer in the Kids Wing

Nursery and Bible classes for all ages have resumed.  Is the Holy Spirit prompting you to serve?

The return to class time and Nursery provides great opportunities for us to step back in to serving in meaningful ways and pouring into the life of our children at Highland Oaks whether during the Bible class hour or during the Worship hour.

Click on this short survey to see the areas of service available to you. Use your gifts, learn new skills and even grow in friendships with other volunteers too! Reach out to Children’s Minister Marla Finley at mfinley@hocc.org to ask her how you can serve.

We understand that children still have not had the chance to be vaccinated, so be assured that we will be requiring the wearing of face masks over the nose and mouth for all unvaccinated people ages 2 and up while in the Kids’ Wing.
