Community Outreach

Every time we gather for worship as a community of faith, Pastor Joe Phelps concludes the service of worship with the call to “end this form of worship to begin again the worship that is our very lives.”

Highland’s members take seriously this call and the direction that is etched into our Sanctuary wall to “be doers of the word, and not hearers only.” We are a people on call to do God’s work of Love in our community, our country, and the world.

This calling to the work of Love stretches from Louisville around the globe and to people of all ages at Highland. Through our affiliations and partnerships with a variety of organizations and through the countless ways that our members see needs and respond, we are a people wired for serving. We want to help you connect your passions with the world’s great needs – whether that is working to alleviate systemic causes of poverty, planting gardens in urban corners of Louisville, caring for refugees in town and around the world, sharing a meal together with people who are without a home, or fighting injustice in the countless places it is found.

Stories, photos, and videos from our mission and justice efforts will give you a glimpse into the ways Highland is responding to the call to Love!
