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.

Friday Morning Women's Study

On February 7, we're being a four-week study reading What's Your Story: seeing Your Life Through God's Eyes by Sarah Heath, studying the story of Joseph in Genesis and exploring how we co-write with God our own life stories. We meet 9:30 - 11:30 AM in room 202 and are led by Rev. Janet Baucom.

On March 6, we'll begin a 5-week study of Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Warren, an exploration of the sacred practices of everyday life.

Monday Evening Bible Study

Monday Night Bible Study is studying the book of Acts, led by Rev. Dr. Alan Swartz and Connie Williams. The group meets from 6:30 - 8 PM in the 3rd-floor Assembly Room. Acts is the book of the church’s beginnings with the Holy Spirit coming in power. Please sign-up in advance by e-mailing Connie. Jumping in mid-stream is welcome and encouraged! Contact Connie for more information.

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.
