Highlanders

Highlanders is our group for the "young at heart," mostly retirees, though all adults are welcome to join their gatherings.  They meet  regularly at the church for lunch and guest speakers, but they are just as often on the move, traveling around the area to a wealth of sites and experiences.  Friends are always welcome, too.  Contact Charlie Stuber to learn more about the group.

Transportation to Highland on Sunday Mornings

Highland's minibus drives residents at Springmoor to and from church for Sunday School and worship on Sunday mornings.  The bus comes to Springmoor at 9:00 to bring folks to Sunday School and worship.  The bus will return everyone to their homes after the 11:00 worship service.  If you have questions about riding the bus, please contact Candi Scott or Tom Lamb at the church office at 919-787-4240.

Upcoming Events

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - Luncheon and Presentation by Kristye Brackett, Vice President of Philanthropy, Transitions Life Care (formerly Hospice of Wake Co.)

Following the luncheon at 12:15 p.m., Kristye Brackett will discuss "Hospice of Wake County to Transition Life Care - From 1979 to the Present."  This is the program that was scheduled for January 16, 2018, but had to be postponed. This topic may be of interest to adults of all ages. Cost of luncheon is $9.00.  Sign up no later than May 18, 2018.

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 -  Lunch at Captain Stanleys - Great Seafood, Reasonable Prices

Church bus will load at 10:15 and depart at 10:30 with lunch at 11:00 AM.  On the return trip we are hoping to make a short stop at the newly renovated Reynolds Coliseum on the NC State campus. The historical events that occurred in that building make it one of the most famous buildings in North Carolina.  Sign up no later than June 8, 2018.

No Highlander events are planned for July and August.  Enjoy the summer and be ready for some exciting events in the fall.

In September, we are again planning to visit the Temple Theatre in Sanford to enjoy 1776 - The Musical.  Tickets are not yet on sale, but the likely date is Thursday, September 20, for the matinee performance.

The Highlanders greatly enjoyed the production of Church Basement Ladies at the Temple Theater this past March.  The Theater will be presenting Church Basement Ladies, Second Helping in January 2019, and we are considering that as another exciting event.
