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.
