I'm New

Whether this is the first time you're getting to know us, you've visited us in person before, or if you've only joined us online during our weekly livestream, we want to welcome you to our church family! Highland is known in the area as the "friendly church on the hill." Many of our faithful members have been here for years — lifetimes even! But at one point, each of us was new so we understand the importance of making our church a warm, welcoming, and loving environment where everyone feels accepted. We pray that you feel Christ's love in our presence!
Below, we've tried to answer any questions that a newcomer might have.
After reading this page, take a look around our site to find out what we have to offer for all ages!
