We worship together outdoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
February 7, 2021
Today was a beautiful day to worship our Lord outside in His sunshine (so that's exactly what we did!).
Hope you can join us next weekend.
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.
UPDATE - Please comment down below and we will respond. Let us know how we can help and if we have blessed you with this on-line worship. Thanks!
Ongoing (as of February 7, 2021)

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 "Justice in Judgment" from Matthew 13:24-30 & 36-40.
It was the parable the the wheat and the tares.
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
Mrs. Denise prays and sings with the children (online, of course) then tells the story of
Jesus teaching the disciples (and us) how to pray from Matthew, Mark & Luke.
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
Finally, Pastor Harvey preached on Jesus at the Feast of Booths in John 7:1-24 as we continue in the Gospel of John and our chapter by chapter preaching throughout 2021.
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.

After singing a couple of songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
Acts 3:1-10 (NASB)
1 Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the ninth hour, the hour of prayer.
2 And a man who had been unable to walk from birth was being carried, whom they used to set down every day at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, in order for him to beg for charitable gifts from those entering the temple grounds.
3 When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple grounds, he began asking to receive a charitable gift.
4 But Peter, along with John, looked at him intently and said, “Look at us!”
5 And he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.
6 But Peter said, “I do not have silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, walk!”
7 And grasping him by the right hand, he raised him up; and immediately his feet and his ankles were strengthened.
8 And leaping up, he stood and began to walk; and he entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.
9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God;
10 And they recognized him as being the very one who used to sit at the Beautiful Gate of the temple to beg for charitable gifts, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
