Presbyterian/Reformed Christians take educational mission seriously. We value informational education, learning about the world, and how it functions. We value vocational education, developing God-given talents in order to fulfill the vocation to which we have been called. And fundamentally we value transformational education. As the Brief Statement of Faith says: “The Spirit gives us courage . . . to witness to Christ as Lord and Savior, to unmask idolatries in church and culture, to hear the voices of people long silenced, and to work with others for justice, freedom, and peace.” Education is one of the hallmarks of the Reformed tradition." Highlands has many opportunities for adults to engage in discussions and learning to further their life-long faith formation.
There are three adult Sunday School classes that meet at 9:00 am each Sunday morning. Whether you are looking for discussions involving Biblical interpretation, traditional Bible Study, or how our faith relates to current event topics, there is a place for you.
The focus of this adult SS class for Spring 2020 is on justice as presented in Scriptures from the prophets and in the reading for Easter Sunday from 1 Corinthians. The prophets communicated God's will to the people and called for repentance and justice.
This adult SS class takes an in-depth walk through the Bible. Together, they read and discuss the historical context and commentary of selected passages.
This class seeks to create a welcoming space for our younger adults to explore questions about faith, biblical ideas, and current events.
Highlands follows the Liturgical Seasons of the church. During both Advent and Lent, the pastor hosts a weekly Bible Study to dive into the theme of the season. These studies are a great way to dive deeper into the liturgical season.
Adult Fellowship Opportunities
An important part of participating in a church community is building relationships and support systems. Worship is the core of our church community, but fellowship follows closely after. Our Fellowship Committee hosts church-wide dinners throughout the year as a way to foster relationships at fun at Highlands. Our Member Care Committee oversees our Shepherd Program, which connects church leaders with families in the church, and our Supper Club program, which helps to connect similarly aged groups together for social gatherings.
