Building a Community for Everyone



When we say that we believe everyone is invited to experience God’s grace, we really mean everyone—not “everyone…except you.” If God wouldn’t turn anyone away, why should we?

We also believe that church isn’t just something we attend, but something that we are. Each one of us plays a role in making our church community a safe place to worship God, ask questions, and figure out how we can get even better at loving God and loving each other.

The Highlands Community offers many ways for members to connect with each other outside of our Sunday services. The Calendar of Events is your source for all events in one location:


If you:

Summer Neighborhood Picnics

Are you looking for ways to connect with fellow Highlanders? We are planning to host outdoor picnics for small numbers of people, located in safe gathering spaces so that we can see each other in person until we are able to meet together in larger groups. Each gathering will meet a total of four times, during the months of July and August, on various days and times in backyards and parks around the metro area. We have created recommendations for safe, social distancing that will be shared with all participants prior to each picnic. Your neighborhood host will share with you the specifics concerning dates, times, locations, food and drink, number of participants and social distancing.
