The Meals on Wheels kitchen volunteers would like to thank you for your generous support in gifting new and gently used dish towels to them.  They appreciate your help.  The need was greatly met!  Thank you.


The “Early Dinner” Thursdays are back!  4:00 pm each week.  The following restaurants are planned: No Dinner THIS EVENING (18th) – VBS; next week July 25th – Olive Garden Pl. Hills.  Please call Karen Prescott (412) 443-5906 if you plan to attend so reservations can be made.  All are welcome – singles or couples.  


Fall Fest 2024 will be held here at Central Highlands on Saturday, September 7th sponsored by UMW.  They are seeking craft vendors and food trucks to fill out the array available for our congregation and guests.  If you know of any vendors or good food trucks, please see Darlene Basic or Cindy Carson for information on registration.  We are looking forward to a fun day for children and adults.  More details to follow over the summer months.


The Outreach Committee has set a new collection container on the desk in the Narthex!!  They are collecting the clear plastic caps from water bottles.  These caps will be delivered to a patient of Ray Gronlund’s that will recycle for a cause.  Please remember to recycle the caps—not just for charity, but for the environment!!  They continue to collect the “aluminum tabs” from cans—these are collected for the Ronald McDonald House of Pittsburgh.

“Tabs with a Purpose” – the Outreach Committee is collecting “tabs” from the top of soup, can goods and beverage cans for the Ronald McDonald House in Pittsburgh. Your TRASH gives them CASH!  Please deposit them in the container in the Narthex.


Looking for new choir members for next Fall!  As you know, the choir is small but very dedicated.  Both Jennifer and the choir would love to have more people join the choir!  They have fun at rehearsals and she also makes practice tracks for each member.  If you like to sing, please consider joining!  Practices are on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:00 from    September - May.   If interested in joining, please contact Jennifer at 412-352-2589 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Tyler Scott, a young Elizabeth Forward high school football player and member of our congregation, severely injured his knee recently that will require surgery.  He will be unable to play this entire football season.  This is devastating news for this young man, his family, teammates and coaches.  Please pray for a successful surgery and rehabilitation so that he can be back on the football field next fall with his team. 
  • Prayers for all the families grieving from recent deaths.  May they find peace and comfort.
