We are excited you are interested in Highland! And we know that your first time at church – any church – brings up some questions…
Who We Are
A faith family that focuses our lives around Christ and His Word, passionately worshipping God and encouraging community based on the “one anothers” of the New Testament. We are committed to practical missions and service in our community and missions partnerships around the world.
What are services like?
Our worship time is celebrative and warm, led by a contemporary worship band. We strive to find a creative blend between the traditional songs of our past, and the biblically-based contemporary worship songs from today. From electric guitar and drums, to violin and cello, every week we work to bring something new to help create an atmosphere and attitude of reverential worship.
Our pastor’s preaching / teaching is mainly Expository (verse by verse explanation of the meaning and relevance to our everyday lives) with emphasis on practical application for real life. In our morning services a guest will see multi-generational believers worshipping together with students, senior adults, young families, and children–who start out in worship with parents but are given the option of transitioning to and from Children’s church (creative lessons & fun activities to involve children in the lesson). Children return to “big church” during the Offering time near the end of the service with verses and bible lessons to share with the family.
What is the community like?
We are a multi-generational community with lots of young families with children and a strong student community (7th – College). We are striving to be a “real” faith family that focuses our lives around Christ and His Word, passionately worshipping God and encouraging community based on the “one anothers” of the New Testament. Our family consists of people from all walks of life and all kinds of life experiences who have been saved by the grace of God. We have a good number of military families (we’re located near Tinker AFB) and we love to support and encourage them as they serve and protect our country.
What if I’m not a Christian?
You are most welcome to come check us out! We hope you will feel “at home and welcomed” by a community who has found hope and meaning in our lives. None of us started out as believers. We love to meet new friends and to explore the “universal questions” of life (Who am I? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? What is wrong with the world? How will what is wrong be made right?)
We consider ourselves to be a “hospital for sinners” and not a museum for saints. We’re all in process together on this journey called life. If possible, we’d like to lighten your load or brighten your road by sharing the Good News of the Gospel!
Will someone contact me if I give my information?
Not unless you want us to. We will send you a letter thanking you for being our guest. We will include you on our email list if you choose to sign up. You can cancel that at anytime. Our pastors and leaders would love to meet with you or pray with you, but only if you wish.
