FAQs about Highland's Summer in the City1. Why the civic center? We are excited about the pending remodel of our auditorium that will occur this summer. We continue to thank God for His provision and the generous hearts at Highland that have made this piece of our Restoration Vision possible. We intentionally chose the Civic Center because we believe in the city of Abilene and the downtown area of Abilene, and the space is large enough to accommodate our membership. This is not a summer off, rather it is a chance to spend the summer leaning more into being a good local church. Often churches ask how can the city build up a good church, we want to be a church that helps to build up a good city. 2. What time will we meet and where in the civic center will we meet? We will meet in the auditorium of the Civic Center on Sundays from, May 4th thru Sunday, July 20th from 10:00 am – 11:30 am. 3. What about bible classes? The Civic Center layout does not accommodate Bible classes. The Highland staff will provide the following time/location options for each Bible class to choose from for meeting during this time. Sunday evenings – HCC building will be open from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Youth and Children’s Ministry classes will be offered from 5:00 – 6:00 pm. This is the recommended option for adult classes. Wednesday evenings – HCC building will be open from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Sunday mornings – HCC building will be open from 8:00 am – 10:00 am. 4. What about His Kids and nursery? During this exciting transitional time, our primary purpose is to provide a safe, secure learning environment for the children at the Civic Center. The facilities there will allow us to offer care for crawling babies through older 2s. We will also provide a Mom’s Nursery where infants can be fed and changed. This room will be adjacent to the main auditorium. We will not offer His Kids Worship for our preschool 3-5 year old children during our worship at the Civic Center. We will provide Sunday Scribe activity bags with triangular,-non roll crayons to accommodate the sloped Civic Center floor. We will also be looking for creative ways to involve all our children in the worship gathering. 5. How can people help during the transition? There are several ways you can help: • We appreciate your patience as we journey through this transition together. • Help by being a greeter and welcoming members and visitors. Sign up in room 107. • Volunteer with children’s ministry to help watch kids. • Invite friends in the city to the civic center with you as we worship in the heart of the city.
