Faithful congregations worship God, make disciples, serve others, practice stewardship, offer care, experience fellowship, and extend hospitality. On Sunday, we will celebrate the ministry of two of our staff ministers: Carol Brown and Ruth DuCharme. Theirs is a ministry of spiritual formation and of making disciples who will remember their way home to God, no matter where they may roam.

Here at Highland Hills we commit to an intentional effort towards discipleship. We gather to learn the way of Jesus, no matter our age or stage in life. As a community of learning disciples, we commit to spiritual formation for everyone through the serious and systematic study of the Bible. We engage the questions of our faith in a context of community, creativity, and respect. We seek to create settings where people can engage the Bible with thoughtful study and creative expression. Ministers like Carol, Ruth and Cass have committed years to Highland Hills through ministries to families with children, families with youth, and families with young adults along with untold numbers of lay leaders. Join us on Sunday as we all celebrate our journey together.
