Welcome Home!

 

Our family here at Highlands Church of Christ has been waiting for you, and it's not by accident that our paths have crossed.  We are eager to share Christ's love with you in genuine, heartfelt warmth and to let you know the marvelous ways that God is working here at Highlands.  

When Highlands was founded in 1978, it all started with just a few families who were brought together by their love of the Lord and for one another.  As our congregation has grown over the years, that same sense of family has grown stronger as well.  It won't take you long to discover that relationships with God and each other are what matter most to us.                                                                                              

Growing together as a family, we worship, serve, laugh, cry and learn together as we reach out to those around us with God's life-changing truth.  We reach out to you as well.  If you've been thinking about, praying, searching and hoping for the place where you belong, we say again...welcome home!

 

Our Worship Together                                                                                                                                               

Highlands takes a simple approach to worship time...simple, but not simplistic.  We seek depth in our search of scripture and intensity in our relationship with God.  We note, however, that Jesus came to earth, not in flowing vestments and with verbose speech, but as a common person who related to common people as He connected them with an uncommon God.  We believe that His church should reflect this attitude, so if you're looking for the "best show in town", you might not find it here.

You can expect to find people from every walk of life and socio-economic level.  Some will be wearing blue jeans and other will have coats and ties or dresses on.  The Bible tells us that "people look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart" (I Sam. 16:7), so it just makes sense that we too should try to focus on the internal attributes far more than the external.

We do desire to build our times in such a way that everyone is a participant.  Our singing is congregational and without instrumental accompaniment, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus every Sunday by taking the Lord's supper together.  We read scripture publicly, take special time to pray and to give, and our sermons are directed toward life application. Ours is an uncomplicated, friendly and Christ-centered atmosphere, and our hope is that all these things will draw us closer to God and to each other.
