Ministries at Highlands


 The ministries of the Highlands congregation are designed to allow us to serve each other, our community, and the world in the name of Jesus Christ. We reach-in to support the physical needs and spiritual growth of our members. We reach-out to make a difference in the lives of people around our local communities and around the globe. And, we reach-up to build spiritual maturity; forming an ever-stronger, personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We encourage you to get to know our congregation through our deeds. We would also love to have you join us as a member and volunteer to serve within one or more of these ministry opportunities!

Children's Ministry - At Highlands, our children are among the most important people within our congregation. We have regular Bible classes, children's church services, camps, VBS and numerous other events and activities that are designed to help establish and grow their faith!


 Youth Group - Our Highlands Youth Group (HYG) is for students in Grades 6th-12th.  In a world full of pressures on every side, HYG is a place where our youth can just be themselves as they find tools that will help them live their daily lives.  With Christ as our main focus, we strive to strengthen our relationship with Him and with each other.    

 Community Care - The Highlands family is committed to making a difference in the lives of the families of our community.  Our community service and outreach projects are conducted at various times throughout the year to meet the needs of the people around us.  Our on site food pantry is available for those in the community who need short term assistance when they face challenges.    


 Adult Education - Each quarter, our members can find classes that will meet their needs and interests.  Through Bible study, classes that focus on relevant topics, workshops or other opportunities, our goal is to provide tools that will help us live stronger Christian lives everyday. 


 Missions - On a regular basis throughout the year, Highlands supports mission efforts in Europe, South America, Africa, and the Bahamas.  Each summer, Highlands is blessed to be able to send a missions team to Honduras.  We wholeheartedly believe in doing what we can to help spread the Gospel throughout the world in any way we can!

 Ladies Ministry - The Ladies Ministry at Highlands is truly special.  In addition to the tremendous support of congregational events and activities, the Ladies Ministry also offers Bible classes and studies for women, along with friendship and encouragement, to help the women of our congregation deal with challenges and opportunities that are specific to their needs.

 Worship & Assembly - Worship is at the heart of all that we do at Highlands!  One  of the great privileges and blessings of being a Christian is having an opportunity to assemble together each week to lift up the name of the Lord and seek to bring honor to Him. From behind-the-scenes roles to more public roles that take place in worship, this ministry area offers numerous opportunities to serve the congregation. 


 Additional ministry opportunities - In a diverse family made up of people with a variety of gifts, talents, and abilities, we believe there is a place for everyone to serve.  Besides the ministries highlighted above, there are several other areas that need attention on a regular basis.  Perhaps the Transportation Ministry, Maintenance Ministries, Technology Ministry or another great outlet will be the place where you "find your fit" here at Highlands!
