Congregational Life

One of Highland’s longtime members once described our community as “a group of people who would never be together otherwise”… and the label stuck!

In an age where more and more people are claiming no religious affiliation, Highland holds a unique place in our folks’ heart as a community of people truly from all walks of life. As stated on our About Us page, Highland is made up of rich and poor, gay and straight, Red and Blue, black and white, young and old, Ph.D. and GED.

Through worship and Bible Study, fellowship and spiritual formation, mission and outreach, we come together week-by-week and form a beautiful, messy, eclectic, odd, treasured, and beloved community of Love. The life of our congregation is brimming with energy and full of possibilities for all people to be formed and transformed by God in the way of love. 

Some of our ministry areas are designated by one’s age or life stage, others by a particular need or interest. All are seeking to live out our church’s mission “to be so changed by God’s transforming love revealed in Jesus Christ that we are an intriguing, inviting, and inclusive community of faith, filled with generous hearts and passion for God’s justice.”  Read on through the links below or to the right about the many areas that Highland’s congregational life is at work!
