What to Expect

What are your weekend services like?

Each weekend at Highlands Church you'll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with exciting, contemporary worship music. A printed outline for notes and a large-screen slide presentation to help you make the most of the practical and relevant message. Children are well-cared for in a loving nursery and energetic, fun-filled Highlands Kid's service.

What will happen when I visit for the first time?

If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and "be anonymous" for a while- and that's fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.

What do I wear to attend your services?

You'll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our Weekend Service. Wear clothing that is comfortable for you, because Highlands Church is not about what you look like or what you wear.

Where are you located?

We are located in Downtown Cumming, just outside the city square on Canton Road/Hwy 20. For more information, visit the contact page.

What about my children?

At Highlands Church your children are a top priority. Our nurseries are clean, safe and staffed with loving workers. We offer a dynamic children's ministry called Highlands Kids as well as life-changing ministry to students from junior high through college.

How can I meet others and get connected?

There are many ways to get involved. You can begin by attending Church 101. Small groups are another great way to connect. In each of these, you can deepen existing relationships, build new friendships and grow in your faith.

How can I be discipled and grow?

Our desire is to see you become a fully-devoted follower of Christ. Our Growth Track offers the tools necessary to make this happen in your life. From the initial decision to accept Jesus as your Lord to your involvement in life-changing ministry, we will lead you step-by-step from healing to growth and into leadership. Begin the process at our next Church 101.

Why do you have small groups?

Small Groups are an important part of Highlands Church; in fact, you haven't fully experienced the church until you've experienced our small groups. Small Groups allow you to meet other members and develop relationships that will further your relationship with God. As Highlands Church grows, small groups allow us to stay connected in community. Small Groups are available for all ages and interests- there's bound to be one that's just right for you. Learn more about why we're big on small groups, or find a group to visit in our directory.

How can I get involved in a small group?

One of the easiest things to do at Highlands Church is to participate in a small group. Small Groups meet throughout the surrounding area and provide a place for Bible study, fellowship and support. Wherever you live, there's a small group near you.
