Bible studies and small groups meet to help us learn more about our faith and to grow in our relationship with God and one another.


Join Pastor Alan Swartz for a 4-week study of Adam Hamilton's Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity. We'll talk about the financial challenges of these days and examine our own spending, saving, and giving habits. In addition to exploring biblical principles of financial management, we will learn ways to assess our financial situation and develop a financial plan that will allow us to experience the true joy that comes through simplicity and generosity. We'll meet via Zoom on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM, October 7 - 28.

So You Want to Talk About Race

Our ACT Now to End Racism book club read this helpful book by Ijeoma Oluo in August and found that there was much more to discuss than could be covered in one night! So, we're returning to this book and inviting others to join the discussion on Thursday nights, October 15 - November 19, at 7 PM via Zoom. The discussion will be led by Rev. Amanda Bunce and all are welcome to join in.

Women's Study

This Fall our Women's Bible Study group is meeting on Monday mornings, 10:00 - 11:30 AM, via Zoom beginning August 31. Our first study of the season will be Adam Hamilton's Moses: In the Footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet.  Contact Rev. Janet Baucom for more information and to join our meetings.

Small Groups

Since Christianity's earliest days, followers of Jesus gathered in one another's homes for meals and times of prayer.  Participation in such small groups was a central part of early Methodism.  That tradition continues at Highland!  We encourage every disciple of Jesus to be part of a small group where you:

    • Help each other to grow and deepen his/her faith, being able to see God at work in the world around us.
    • Fellowship and build a community of relationships with one another
    • Take care of one another in good times and difficult times
    • Serve together

Interested? Curious about groups going on at Highland and how you can participate? We currently have 6 groups meeting in homes, but there's always opportunities for more individuals and new groups. Contact Rev. Janet Baucom and she'll be glad to help you get plugged in.
