We worship together outdoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
January 17, 2021
And...we are back.
After a week of being closed due to an outbreak of COVID-19, we are now back live with outdoor socially distanced worship.
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 January 24, 2021)
COVID-19 Protocols in Our Church
Yes! We are still meeting outside.
(4900 North Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 9004 - Just behind the big white house)
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 "The Invitation to Christ" from Matthew 22:1-14.
It was the parable of the wedding feast.
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
John baptizing Jesus which is found in all four Gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
Finally, Pastor Harvey preached on Jesus Feeding 5000 in John 6:1-14 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.
Thanks for all of your support!
For Him and His Kingdom,

After singing a couple of songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
Nehemiah 9:9-15 NASB
9 “You saw the affliction of our fathers in Egypt,
And heard their cry by the Red Sea.
10 Then You performed signs and wonders against Pharaoh,
Against all his servants and all the people of his land;
For You knew that they acted arrogantly toward them,
And You made a name for Yourself as it is this day.
11 You divided the sea before them,
So they passed through the midst of the sea on dry ground;
And You hurled their pursuers into the depths,
Like a stone into raging waters.
12 And with a pillar of cloud You led them by day,
And with a pillar of fire by night
To light for them the way
In which they were to go.
13 Then You came down on Mount Sinai,
And spoke with them from heaven;
You gave them just ordinances and true laws,
Good statutes and commandments.
14 So You made known to them Your holy Sabbath,
And gave them commandments, statutes, and law,
Through Your servant Moses.
15 You provided bread from heaven for them for their hunger,
You brought out water from a rock for them for their thirst,
And You told them to enter in order to take possession of
The land which You swore to give them.
