When speaking about what has gathering as part of the Highlawn Alliance meant to you, “The input that the clergy leadership has been privileged to have has been tremendous. Knowing what things are planned or being discussed is really helpful, just in conversation with the people of the community. Having a voice for so many people of faith that live in Highlawn makes more of a difference than I think we even understand. As we move toward the Happy Health Highlawn initiative I am looking forward to new ways to connect with the community as ‘part of the community’ is vitally important. As we look to find these new ways of connecting, it allows the church to be more and more helpful to address the actual needs of the community.
