In keeping with our Methodist heritage, we celebrate two sacraments at Highland:
Baptism is the outward and visible sign of an inward grace, God’s work in our lives. Baptism marks our entrance into the community of faith and, therefore, is celebrated in the community during Sunday morning worship. Those seeking infant or adult baptism or with questions about this entry into the faith are invited to contact our pastors by e-mail or by calling the church office.
Holy Communion is the sacrament that sustains us and nourishes us for the Christian journey. Gathered around the table, we remember Christ’s sacrifice for us, celebrate God’s love and forgiveness, receive anew God’s gifts of grace, and are reminded of God’s presence in our midst. We celebrate an “open table,” meaning that you do not have to be United Methodist or a member of Highland UMC to join us in Holy Communion; all who seek Christ and seek to live in peace with others are welcome. Following our Methodist heritage, we use bread and grape juice to celebrate the sacrament.
