As we all know by now, Alisun and Jack Donovan relocated in late spring to St Petersburg, to help with day care for their two grandkids and to be of support to aging parents. Since then, Jack has been graciously and lovingly commuting to Highlands for church activities, especially Sunday mornings, as we have conducted a pastoral search. Jack has now found a congregation in St. Pete, and so his last Sundays at Highlands are upon us.
Please come share and participate in Jack's last two Sundays at Highlands—October 5, and his final Sunday at Highlands, October 19. Alisun will accompany him and will also be the Liturgist on October 19.
We invite everyone especially to attend on October 19 and the farewell celebration that will follow in the Fellowship Room. Yes, it's hard to say goodbye, but this will be a celebration of Jack and Alisun's time here and their loving contributions in building our church to what it is today, a caring community welcoming all!
Also of note, October 12 is Sharing Sunday at Highlands, facilitated by Meaghan Monoghan. We will share our Congregational Reflections and Experiences of Fall, and its place in our thoughts and lives.
