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 until at least mid-May. 

We recognize the incredible disruption this is for our life together at Highland, but we also understand the role social distancing plays in protecting one another and the people of our community. 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

Click the "Connection Service"

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?

Some of our congregation have had technical difficulties when trying to stream the service. We are continuing to work to improve some of the audio issues that we've had. Every week, we're learning and seeking to improve our worship experience. We appreciate everyone's patience.

We've also been challenged by this unprecedented need for live-streaming, which is testing the capacities of websites like the one we use (sermon.net). 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

With Wake County's Proclamation of Emergency Restrictions, known as the "stay at home order," Highland is making a few adjustments to how we are doing business at this time. The church office will be closed for typical business through (at least) April 17.

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

Caring for One Another

We are entering into an unfamiliar time of social isolation and want to be sure that everyone in our faith community has what they need.
