We worship together outdoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
November 29, 2020
And...we had coffee AND hot chocolate for anyone who wanted it this morning!
It was another beautiful day to worship God outdoors (socially distanced, of course).
Our gathering in person is not very large (number of people wise), so there is PLENTY of room for you to join us next week if you are so inclined.
We prefer worshiping and praying in person, but...we get it, really. Some folks are still cautious about meeting in person. So If you would like prayer for yourself, family, etc., either place it the comments below or if you want to keep it private, send us a Facebook message and ONLY the 2 admins at Highland Park Christian Church will see the request and then share the request as an "unspoken" request for all to pray over.
We continue we continue to keep uploading the sermon and providing the YouTube versions of the songs that we sang during worship today. So even if you cannot join us, we'd still like to pray for you.
Give us a call or email Pastor Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org to request prayer.
Ongoing COVID-19 Protocols in Our Church
Yes! We are still meeting outside.
Here are some photos of what our outdoor worship area
looks like before the folks show up.
We hope to see YOU in one of these social distanced chairs with us soon!
This weekend we have prepared a worship page for you that includes...
Thursday Night's Bible Study PowerPoint AND the Zoom meeting recording.
The topic was "LOVE" from I John 4:7-21
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
Isaac builds some wells and is kind to his neighbors.
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
Today we continued to take a break from the Gospel of John as we entered the Advent season (don't worry we'll pick back up in John after the 1st of the year).
We hope this continues to bless YOU and draws you closer to God.
Remember, Denise and I are a phone call away if you want to pray together or just chat.
(Also remember that God is NOT far away, He has promised that He would never leave us - can I get an "Amen"!)
And don't forget you can comment below about anything that we can help you with or send us a Facebook message on the facebook message app.
You can also use the "comments below to start any conversation with us.
Thanks for all of your support!
For Him and His Kingdom,
Pastors Harvey & Denise

After singing a couple of songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
1 Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave, although he is owner of everything,
2 But he is under guardians and managers until the date set by the father.
3 So we too, when we were children, were held in bondage under the elementary principles of the world.
4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law,
5 So that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons and daughters.
6 Because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba! Father!”
7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.
