2020 Union Meeting Cancellation Information
April 2, 2020

Dear Hightower Baptist Churches,

We are living through unprecedented times for our generation.  Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think we would face a pandemic and have to transition ministering to our churches through online streaming, video conferencing, text messages and phone calls.  I am thankful for a God who is not caught off guard by this recent activity and who has walked with other generations through trying times.  I am confident that the message of Jesus will continue to be shared in our homes and community.
WMU Cancellations
From the WMU committee,

We have canceled our HBA WMU Pastors Appreciation for Monday April 27.  Also the GA Baptist WMU spring event was canceled for 4/24-25.
Please encourage your congregation to still give to the Annie Armstrong missions.
VBS Clinics Canceled
Dear Hightower Association Churches,

The Hightower VBS Clinics have been canceled for this year.  At this current time, we don’t know if our churches will be able to have Bible Schools this summer.  If that changes, and we pray that it does, we will put together director and class packets and send them out.  Our team will be here to help in any way we can.  In the event you don’t have VBS at your church and you have already purchased the Big Fish Bay director’s kit or materials, please keep them as there is a strong possibility that we will use this theme next year.
If you have any questions please email me.

Thank You,
William Holcomb
VBS Clinic Director
