DATE & TIME: Saturday, April 27th - 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION: Please click the link at the bottom of the page to register. Registrations must be completed by Tuesday, April 23rd.

Volunteers are needed before, during and after the event including:

Set Up/Tear Down: Help set up from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Friday the 26th or from 8:00-10:00 a.m. on Saturday the 27th, or both! Help tear down from 3:30-5:30 p.m. on Saturday the 27th.

Other opportunities which will be assigned on the day of the event:

Playmates for the siblings: Hang out with the siblings and participate in activities with them.

Runners: Help take items to various areas during the event and fill in any gaps where help is needed.

This is a great opportunity to reach out and show others the love of Christ!

HCF Summer Getaway

Want to have a great time getting out of town, relaxing, and hanging out with other folks in our church family? Join us June 9-12 on the beautiful Texas Gulf Coast for a summer getaway! This will be the perfect chance to take a road trip with fellow church members, family, and friends.

For this trip, everyone is responsible for handling their own travel and hotel arrangements and all trip expenses. NOTE: The deadline for making hotel reservations is Saturday, May 18th.

HOTEL: We will be staying at The Lighthouse Inn at Aransas Bay in Rockport, TX (www.lighthousetexas.com). Call 866-790-8439 to make your reservations. Be sure to mention that you are part of the Highland Country Fellowship group to get the discounted rate. King Suites with a pullout sofa are available for $149 per night and Double Queen rooms are available for $119 per night. Up to four guests may stay in a room for that price. Be sure to give the additional guest names when you make your reservation. These reduced rates are also available for Saturday, June 8th and Wednesday, June 12th if you would like to come early and/or stay later.

TRAVEL: The Lighthouse Inn is about a six-hour drive from Dallas. Flights to Corpus Christi are also available and rental cars are available for the 45-minute drive to Rockport. We encourage folks who are driving from Dallas to carpool and we will help coordinate rides.

ACTIVITIES: We will be planning evening group activities and will help coordinate day excursions to other sites and activities during the day. A number of attractions can be visited easily from the Rockport area including Rockport Beach, Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, USS Lexington (World War II-vintage aircraft carrier), Texas State Aquarium, Texas Maritime Museum, and Winery on the Bay (where you can make your own wine!).

Fishing (including guided trips), golf, hiking, bird watching, art galleries, and shopping are also available.

MEALS: Everyone is responsible for their own meals and a list of recommended restaurants will be provided. The hotel offers a complimentary continental style breakfast each morning. An evening meal will be provided by the church on Tuesday the 11th.
