New to Highland?First of all, welcome! We’re glad you came to Highland Presbyterian Church. We are a creative and dynamic ministry providing ever-expanding opportunities for all to experience and share the good news of Jesus Christ!
The Highland Experience
We want you to be comfortable during your worship at Highland. Whether you are in dressy, casual, or business attire – you’ll fit right in with us. Children are encouraged to learn while they play so use your best judgement with what would keep your little one comfortable.
Kids through 5th grade are invited to join Miss Jenn, Interim Director of Christian Education, and a rotation of other teachers every Sunday morning at 9:30 am and 11:00 am for Sunday School. Children should begin each service with their parent/guardian after signing in at the welcome center at the Fellowship Hall entrance. Then, children will be dismissed from each service and walk to classroom 102 with their teachers. Parents/guardians may pick up their children after the service in the classroom. The nursery is open at the beginning of every service. Children in the nursery can be picked up in classroom 102 at the end of each service.
Whatever your needs are for Sunday mornings, Highland is willing to help you meet those needs. Feel free to ask any usher to point you in the right direction, call the church office 717-569-2651 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to plan ahead for your morning.
Mission & Vision
Connecting You with Christ and Community
Highland Presbyterian Church is a healthy, intergenerational, 63-year-old church, located in a growing and vibrant community with strong religious roots. We seek to lead people to a transforming connection with Jesus Christ, nurture that connection individually and corporately, and share the compelling love of that connection with the community and world. In other words, we are a People Following Jesus who are called to Breathe in God’s Grace and Breathe out God’s Love.
We seek to be a church living out the love of God and the abundant life that Jesus described. This goal is reflected in the essential components of our vision:
- Inspiring, relevant, vibrant worship that encourages a dynamic connection with Jesus Christ through traditional and contemporary services. An intergenerational congregation, we have children, youth, parents, and grandparents worshipping alongside one another and we encourage worship opportunities that engage all ages and stages. Highland’s strong music program is a vital part of worship and has a long tradition of excellence, not just at Highland, but throughout our community.
- Comfort, care, and compassion ministries that seek to reach out to all in need, following the servant example of our Lord. This begins with a warm and inviting atmosphere for worship and fellowship, supportive ministries for those in our church facing challenges and then extends beyond the church walls to the surrounding community and world.
- Spiritual nurturing for all ages that seeks to ground children and youth in the faith through life-relevant programming and activities and encourages adults to interact and mature in their faith through numerous classes, small groups, and special events.
- Effective mission and service that seek to serve Jesus by reaching out “to the least of these” through a variety of
trips and projects both locally and globally throughout the year.
