January 11th and 18th offer a special treat at Highlands' 11 a.m. services. Ruth Elswood, who has been studying for the ministry at Austin Presbyerian Theological Seminary in Texas, is visiting Gainesville and will deliver the sermons for both Sundays.
Ruth and her husband Lon have been Highlands members since 2013. During the last few years in addition to studying, she has been completing internships, last year as resident chaplain at Tampa General Hospital. Highlands is the sponsoring congregation for Ruth's seminary study. She will graduate in June, at which time she and Lon plan to return to Gainesville.
We are happily looking forward to both services and hope you will join us for one or both!
