In this rapidly changing technological world people are feeling detached, isolated and in need of community. Despite how many “Friends” they have! We believe that a big part of the faith journey to walk it with others. We have several ways for people to connect at High Mountain Church.
20/20 Home Groups: In Acts 20:20 St. Paul writes: “You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.” Our 20/20 Home groups gather together in a community of care and friendship to discuss Scripture, discover faith and walk through life together. The groups meet once a month to delve deeper into the sermon messages. We believe we change the world one group at a time.
Online Bible Study: Because people are busy and life can be chaotic we periodically offer short online studies using Zoom, the video conferencing application.
Marriage Group: We have a once a month gathering for married couples to discuss various subjects related to marriage. This group is called Connect.
Prayer Gatherings: We have special times of prayer throughout the year including weekly gatherings during Advent, Lent and the summer months.
