AppFearIn the midst of a storm that makes the disciples a wee bit nervous, Jesus asks, "Why are you afraid?"  The obvious answer was the weather, but external circumstances are rarely the real source of our fear. 
This Sunday, June 24, we will discover Fearless Living: There's an App for That as Senior Pastor Rev. Michael Piazza continues our new sermon series. Please join us at 11 a.m.!

Virginia-Highland Church Needs You!
Membership class is Sunday, July 15


If you have been looking for a way to give your life more meaning, or a purpose that has eternal consequences, perhaps becoming a member of Virginia-Highland Church is it. No church could need you more. As a member of Virginia-Highland Church--a church with a great history, amazing values, and a wonderful future--you can participate in a miracle of resurrection. Membership class will be held Sunday, July 15, from 12:30-2 p.m., following worship. (A light lunch will be provided.) Senior Pastor Rev. Michael Piazza and lay leader Bill Eure will spend some time telling you a bit about the history of the church and, more importantly, its future. Then, the next Sunday, July 22, you will join the church during morning worship. We can transfer your membership from another church, or you are welcome to hold dual memberships in our church and your home church.


To be honest, this church doesn't need any more members; no church does. What we desperately need, though, are people called by God who want to be a part of a vibrant community of faith; people who want to use their presence, passion, and energy to make a difference. Virginia-Highland Church needs you, and, who knows, you may need this church! In order to have an accurate headcount for lunch, please contact David Plunkett, Director of Church Life, at if you plan to attend.

Neighbors in Need
Shelter meal is Sunday, July 1
The Neighbors in Need Team, which is dedicated to addressing hunger, homelessness, and poverty in our neighborhood, has adopted a monthly Saturday workday at the Intown Collaborative Ministries Food Pantry and a bimonthly meal at Journey, a ministry to homeless men in our community (formerly the Druid Hills Men's Night Shelter). We need volunteers to help prepare and serve the shelter meal on Sunday, July 1 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and to work at the food pantry on Saturday, July 21 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. If you would like to get involved in these Neighbors in Need efforts, please contact Anna Hall, Minister for Community Outreach, at 

Saving Jesus from the Church
Sunday morning book study and discussion 


The marriage by the church of bad theology and hypocritical behavior has eroded our spiritual lives. In his new book, Saving Jesus from the Church: How to Stop Worshiping Christ and Start Following Jesus, renowned author Robin Meyers, Senior Minister of Mayflower Congregational UCC in Oklahoma City, takes the best of biblical scholarship and recasts core Christian concepts in an effort to save Christianity from its obsession with personal salvation. This exciting and provocative book is the basis for a new Sunday morning Christian education series led by Rich Wall. Not a plea to try something brand new, but rather the recovery of something very old, Saving Jesus from the Church shows us what it means to follow Jesus's teachings today. Join us Sunday mornings at 9:30 in the library, located downstairs, for a lively discussion.
