Coronavirus Response

In keeping with recommendations from our local government and our Conference leadership, Highland will be closed for on-campus worship, studies, and most group gatherings through the end of the summer. 

We recognize the incredible disruption this is for our life together at Highland, but we are reminded of our Wesleyan heritage and the conviction to "do no harm." The health and well-being of our congregation and community must take priority. Thankfully, we know that we are knit together as a community by the power of the Holy Spirit, even when we cannot physically be together. Remember, the church is a people, not a building. So keep being church! Pray for one another. Talk to one another - by phone, e-mail, text. Explore the amazing advances in technology that enable us to "gather" in new and different ways. May the peace of Christ be with us all in the days ahead.

Live-stream Worship: 11 AM Sundays

Live-streams & Recordings

Our streamed services in this season draw on both our traditional and contemporary services, including hymns and praise songs, scriptures and sermons, children’s messages and prayers. 

Worship is an offering we make to God, individually and together, so participate as fully as you can! Pray with us, join responsive readings, sing along. May it all be to the glory of God!

Technical Difficulties?

If you can’t join us during the 11:00 hour for whatever reason, please go back and stream the service’s recording at a later time, posted on the same website as the live-streamed services.

At the Church Office

Following the governor's 3-phase reopening plan,  Highland continues to do much of business remotely at this time. The church office will be closed for typical business through (at least) the end of summer.

Church staff will be in the building on a limited basis to perform essential functions for the facilities and business office. They will try to check voicemail regularly, but e-mail will be received much more quickly. If you need to get in touch with someone more promptly, texts and direct calls may be more effective:

  • Pastoral concerns - Alan's cell 919-210-9120
  • Business Office concerns - Jim's cell 919-606-0135
  • Facilities concerns - Tom's cell 919-624-1405
