We have been closely and prayerfully monitoring the recent rise of COVID-19 in our communities. With the guidance of our local health officials, elders, and leadership team, we have made the decision to host our Sunday Services online only for the next several weeks.
This was a difficult decision for us to make, and we made it with you at the forefront of our minds. We feel it is our responsibility to care for you, the incredible people of Highlands, and the amazing communities that we get to serve to the best of our ability.
We ask that you fervently join us in prayer:
We will continue hosting weekly Saturday morning prayer meetings online and at many of our locations with physical distancing standards in place. You are welcome to come and pray with us at a campus near you.
We also want to let you know about our plans for the Serve Day Kit and tee shirt Pick-up that was slated for this Sunday July 5th. We will be making kits available with a drive-through pick up this Thursday, July 9th at all of our campuses. You can drive by and pick up your kit from 9am - 11am or 4pm - 6pm. We will provide more updates on Serve Day and how you can be a part during this Sunday’s service. If you are participating in Serve Day, July 11, all current updates can be found here.
We love you, we are praying for you, and we are believing that God will continue to meet with us during this season as we worship together online.
Prayer is our first response, not our last resort. We’re comforted and empowered knowing we serve a miracle-working God who is an ever-present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1). Ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes and show you how to pray for those on the front lines, at high risk, and in great need.
We’d love to pray for you and your needs. Ask for prayer or text PRAYER to 74000 and our prayer team will pray for you specifically throughout the week.
Our weekly prayer service is also streamed every Saturday at 9:00am Central, and we’d love for you to join us. You can view this week’s prayer service here.
If you’re in a position to be able to serve, we’ll keep you updated with opportunities. Each of our campuses is mobilizing across the state to partner with local food banks, schools, and organizations to maximize the efforts to serve the people in our communities. Stay connected to the Serve App for information.
Because of your generosity, we’re able to operate our finances in a way that allows us to give without hesitation in times of need and crisis. That’s exactly what we’re doing now and will continue to do. If you feel led to financially be a part of our COVID-19 outreach efforts, you may give here.

While we exercise wisdom in keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, we know that divine health and protection is from Jesus. Let’s continue to trust in His promises of protection in Psalm 91 for ourselves, our families, and all those who are affected by illness and pray that the virus will be contained and conquered.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling. Psalm 91:9–10
