Highpoint Episcopal Community Church welcomes you!

 


We are delighted that you have found us. Highpoint Episcopal Community Church is one of Sandy Springs' best 
kept secrets.  Our Church is located at the top of a gently sloping hill in the middle of eight beautiful, largely wooded acres along High Point Road in Sandy Springs. At Highpoint, we provide a church home to those who want to focus on spirituality, pastoral care, and fellowship in a caring, nurturing environment, where Christian “community” is the focus.

Hello, Everyone!!......Many thanks to Chefs Chuck and Claudia Zimmerman for the wonderful meal on Monday night at MSG. Chuck's marinated chicken with fixins was thoroughly enjoyed by the hungry crowd of 15 persons.

Next Monday, 9/17 the chefs are the dynamic duo of Ralph and Ree Edwards. They always arrive with very tasty and enjoyable food offerings, so book your reservation SOON by LETTING RALPH OR REE KNOW IF YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND.

Many thanks to all those who attended the Celebration Sunday event at HECC. From the Sunday church service to the delicious potluck lunch coordinated so well by Marshall Kress and helpers to the presentation by the Study Group on church Growth the Celebration was an uplifting experience enjoyed by 29 caring souls interested in trying to help HECC in moving forward toward continuing and enhancing the good work of being "doers of the Word" by working to live out the mission of being a Christian faith community. Everyone at the Celebration selected their areas of interest as far as committees/teams to which they would like to give their time and talent. Soon those committees /teams will be formed and the work of becoming a "transformational" church will begin. What an exciting time to be part of our little faith community!

A public thank you is in order to Duffy Hickey for the wonderful PowerPoint presentation he arranged for the Study Group presentation. And, a rousing public THANK YOU for my fellow Study Group members- Duffy Hickey, Suellen Morse, Rev. Ruth Pattison and David Hendee for their dedication, diligence and caring toward doing the research and presentation on church growth.

Blessings and Peace!

I've always been an artist.

As a child my mother and grandmother saved every blank piece of paper or cardboard they came across. I scribbled on the backs of envelopes, the cardboard from legal pads, and even the packaging that panty hose came wrapped around (one of my favorites because of the glossy surface). As a teen I upgraded my canvas from pantyhose card stock to school books, chalk boards, soccer balls, tennis shoes, bathroom stalls, and ripped jeans.

I studied art at Agnes Scott and architecture at Georgia Tech. After graduation, I became a designer, completing plans for houses, remodels, decks, and landscapes for clients across Georgia. My art manifested itself in the physical form of structures and plants. Eventually I served twelve years in the corporate world loaning my brain to benefit others. Been there. Done that. Now I make a living doing what I was meant to do.

I have always been an artist.

My most recent work explores the nature of fluidity through the element of water. It is a reoccurring theme in my work, either through the use of specific colors and images or the movement of the paint across the surface. Depth, distance, the silence of immersion, turbulence, and topography are examined throughout the pieces.
