COVID-19  UPDATES

Find all the latest updates about our outdoor and live stream services right here!

Out of an abundance of caution and wisdom, and to adhere to state and CDC guidelines, we have spent a considerable amount of time preparing our campus for outdoor services, and we are also providing online service options. Your safety is our number one priority, so we’re taking various precautions and steps to ensure you have a great experience both in-person and online!

The  Highlands  Full Reopen  Plan

We carefully and thoughtfully researched best practices for keeping our church family safe upon reopening our campus on June 7th. In accordance with state and CDC guidelines, we created a plan that was submitted to various levels of government and law enforcement for approval. Since then, we have updated our policies to reflect new announcements that have been released from the state. To see the original reopen plan, click the link below.
 

Sunday Services

Due to the most recent announcement regarding the closure of indoor church services, our service options have changed. At 8:00AM, we will have an in-person service held outdoors. At this service, we will continue practicing safety precautions, such as social distancing, wearing masks, and sanitizing shared spaces between services.

Live stream services will be available at 10:00AM and 12:00PM on our website, app, Facebook Live, and YouTube Live. We also have a live stream service available every Wednesday evening at 7:00PM.

Stay Connected

While we are so excited to be able to meet together again, we understand that many of our church family members may not feel comfortable attending services on campus. We have good news for you! We will be continuing our live stream services indefinitely, which means you can join us in-person or from the comfort of your home for any service!

Children and Youth Ministries

At our outdoor 8:00AM services, kids will participate in worship with their families. After worship, a Faith Factory Kids' Zone will be provided outside in the shaded playground area, featuring Bible lessons, fun activities, and yummy snacks for the kids.

We are also excited to announce our new United Students time and location! Our combined middle school and high school youth services will be held Sunday evenings at 6:30PM outside in the Amphitheater.

We will continue practicing social distancing and wearing masks for children ages 4 and up.

Giving

In-service giving looks a little different now that we are gathering together again outdoors. Although all of the online forms of giving are the same, in-service giving has changed in order to accommodate a "touchless" and outdoor environment. What that means is that offering baskets will not be passed by the ushers. However, there will be various places available on campus to drop off your tithes and offerings.

Note  from  The  Highlands  on  Reopening

We understand that this has been a challenging time for many people and that there are different viewpoints on the COVID-19 pandemic. We ask for an extra measure of grace with one another and patience with us as we navigate this unprecedented season. May we be abounding in love and understanding towards others, as is expected of the church always.

Prayer

We are always available and happy to pray with you, so if you need prayer at any time, email us at prayer@thehighlands.church, or call our church offices at 661.273.1000.
