We have been in daily contact with our elders and civil authorities to assist us in leading our church forward with integrity and responsibility on the best way to resume holding weekend services at our campuses. Our current plan is to begin holding in-person services on Sunday, June 21, with reduced capacity and recommended distancing guidelines in place.
Your spiritual and physical health are our highest priorities. We advise those in our church family who are at higher risk for severe illness to please continue to worship with us online for a season. We will continue to provide quality online content for you and for those who would prefer to pray and worship at home.
Highlands Kids church services and nurseries will not be available at this time. We hope to re-open those areas in July.
Our weekly prayer service will also be available to attend in-person beginning on Saturday, June 6, at some of our campus locations. It is streamed every Saturday at 9:00am Central, so we’d love for you to join us online or in-person.
We will continue to monitor this situation and reevaluate our timeline on a daily basis. We are prepared to make adjustments as needed should things change. We look forward to being with you again as soon as possible.
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.

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, visit the Giving page.
Below are some of the ways you can stay connected, get involved, or receive help during this time. We love you and we are praying for you!
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.

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
