The heart of Christian community is real relationships.  At Highland, there is a place for you to connect on a deeper level with other people.  In our studies, small groups, and fellowship you can find your community.

Church-wide Brunch & Celebration

The entire Highland family is invited to a pancake brunch at noon on Sunday, November 19 in Bradley Hall.  We celebrate with thanksgiving that we have received pledges for almost $2 million for our renovation campaign and look forward to the exciting plans for renovations and new construction that will be presented by the Building Committee. Additional activities for children will be available during a brief building presentation. Please RSVP below to help give us a head count for our meal together.

Starting Point

Be our guest at a Starting Point lunch on the second Sunday of the month at 12:15 p.m. the church Conference Room. We'll provide lunch and Pastors Alan and Charlie will share about what life in our Highland UMC community looks like.  There will also be time for you to share more about yourself.  Coming to Starting Point is not a commitment to join the church, but a way for new visitors to learn more about the congregation to make a more informed decision about joining in the future.
Our next Starting Point will be December 10.  So we can have enough food, please let us know that you are coming by the prior Wednesday.  You can register here or call the church office during business hours at 919-787-4240.
