  • Rev. Julie - 20th January 2023

    This Sunday we’re going to learn about the Ostrich. Who knew we could do that in church? I’m pretty excited. Don’t you think the ostrich is a neat bird? Its legs are set way back so its body weight really doesn’t seem distributed that well and yet it can run exceedingly fast. It has these huge wings and yet it can’t fly. It has the biggest eye ball of all the birds (and can see up to 3.5 km away) and yet it is not particularly smart. read more

  • Rev. Julie - January 13th 2023

    This Sunday we will be blessed with Rev. Deb Bowman’s engaging and thought provoking worship as she leads us through a series on the birds of the bible. On one of the Sunday’s (Jan 29) we’ll have Dawn Pemberton as our special guest so be sure to come to the whole series!! Now that we are returning more and more to in person connections, I’ve been reflecting on how our global online connection and communities are here to stay. At Highlands our Sunday worship services are always hybrid – online and in person. And, I even hesitate to use the word “hybrid” because the truth is we are one! read more

  • Happy New Year!!

    Wow. 2023. And we’re already a week in. How did this happen? Soon (Jan 15) we will be blessed with Rev. Deb Bowman’s series “Consider the Birds” based on Debbie Blue’s book of the same name. So, this Sunday we will explore all things Epiphany from the magi to Jesus’ baptism. And I doubt any of us will notice that we go from baby Jesus to adult Jesus in less than an hour! read more

  • Rev. Will Sparks Christmas Musing

    The day is finally here! Tomorrow, weather willing, we will gather at our beloved Highlands church for services to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Plans, practices, preparations, all have taken place. Star has shifted overhead. Angels, shepherds, Magi, all know their lines (I think). Greeters are ready, even eager, to welcome anyone seeking a warm and joyful place to worship. I think we are ready. read more
