Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
Each year we collect a special offering for international missions. This year, our goal is $25,000.
The first $8,000 we receive will go to help one of our gospel partners purchase a vehicle for the
field. The remainder of the monies we receive will go to the International Mission Board’s Lottie
Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. All these monies go directly to help the
work of missionaries on the field. Would you pray about how much you might give above and
beyond your regular giving to help us reach our goal that we may help reach the nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ?

Christmas Card Exchange
In an effort to help our members exchange Christmas cards and save on postage, Beth Hyman
has placed a box in the foyer where you may place your Christmas cards according to
alphabetical order. Feel free to take advantage of the opportunity. And do say thank you to Beth Hyman!

Giving at High Pointe
God is generous, and so he calls us to be as well. What we do with what God has given us shows
the world where our hearts are and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God in every
area of our lives, including what we do with our finances. But as you may have noticed, we do
not take up a collection on Sundays at High Pointe. Consequently, we’ve been receiving
questions as to how to give. There are several ways you may give:
1. Offering Boxes in Auditorium – You may place your offering in an offering box.
2. Mail – You may mail your contribution to the church office.
3. Text/Online – You may give by texting 84321 (it will require a first-time setup).
4. Your Bank – You may give through your own bank via Bill Pay or ACH.
If you have any questions, go to this LINK. Our financial staff is also available to help or answer
your questions. You may call the church office at 512-837-7725.

On-Call Pastor
To better care for you, High Pointe, we have an “on-call” pastor available for emergencies after
office hours and on weekends. To reach the on-call pastor, call 512-837-7725, extension 1.
Preaching Schedule: Pray regularly for the ministry of the Word at High Pointe. Also, prepare
for our gatherings by reading the sermon text, thinking it through, and asking questions about the
