Sacred Space Campaign

“…for the place on which you are standing is holy ground” (Exodus 3:5)

When God tells Moses to take off his sandals at the burning bush because he is standing on holy ground, have you ever wondered what sets apart that particular space as holy? After all, there isn’t anything significant about the wilderness where Moses has taken his sheep. It’s a reminder that God shows up in all sorts of spaces, through all kinds of people, and in surprising ways. Perhaps what designates a space as “holy” is just that – it’s a space where God shows up with us.

God has been showing up among us in the sacred space at the corner of Grinstead and Cherokee for over 125 years now!

The reality is that we have some long overdue work to do within our sacred space, including replacing our irreparable HVAC system, so that Highland can continue to be a welcoming, safe, and vibrant space for our community for generations to come. Our goal is to raise $2.5 million over the next three years (2023-2025) for this necessary work within our aging building. Alongside this goal, we are also mindful that we need to fully-fund the ongoing ministries of Highland that empower us to do the work of justice and Love in God’s world together.

So many people will be directly impacted by this campaign: neighbors who attend our weekly AA and NA meetings, teachers, parents, and children from Kentucky Refugee Ministries who use our space each week, LGBTQ+ folks who have never before experienced the affirmation and love of a church family, and so many who continue to find their way to Highland and need the sacred space that a unique faith community like ours has to offer. We invite you to give to the Sacred Space Campaign so that Highland can continue to be a vital space where all people can find welcome, healing, and courage in their journeys.
