We worship together outdoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
January 24, 2021
Oh my! What a beautiful day for worshiping God outdoors...
Which is what we did!
We prefer worshiping and praying in person, but...we get it, really. Some folks are still cautious about meeting in person. So If you would like prayer for yourself, family, etc., either place it the comments below or if you want to keep it private, send us a Facebook message and ONLY the 2 admins at Highland Park Christian Church will see the request and then share the request as an "unspoken" request for all to pray over.
We continue we continue to keep uploading the sermon and providing the YouTube versions of the songs that we sang during worship today. So even if you cannot join us, we'd still like to pray for you.
Give us a call or email Pastor Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org to request prayer.
UPDATE - Please comment down below and we will respond. Let us know how we can help and if we have blessed you with this on-line worship. Thanks!
Ongoing (as of January 24, 2021)

Here are some photos of what our outdoor worship area
looks like before the folks show up.
We hope to see YOU in one of these social distanced chairs with us soon!
This weekend we have prepared a worship page for you that includes...
Thursday Night's Bible Study PowerPoint AND the Zoom meeting recording.
The topic was "The Call to Service" from Matthew 20:1-16.
It was the parable the workers in the vineyard
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
Mrs. Denise prays and sings with the children (online, of course) then tells the story of
Jesus Choosing His Helpers.
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
Finally, Pastor Harvey preached on Jesus Walking on Water in John 6:15-40 as we continue in the Gospel of John and our chapter by chapter preaching throughout 2021.
We hope this continues to bless YOU and draws you closer to God.
Remember, Denise and I are a phone call away if you want to pray together or just chat.
(Also remember that God is NOT far away, He has promised that He would never leave us - can I get an "Amen"!)
And don't forget you can comment below about anything that we can help you with or send us a Facebook message on the Facebook message app.
You can also use the "comments below to start any conversation with us.

After singing a couple of songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
Matthew 14:22-36 NASB
Jesus Walks on the Water
22 Immediately afterward He compelled the disciples to get into the boat and to go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away.
23 After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone.
24 But the boat was already a long distance from the land, battered by the waves; for the wind was contrary.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea.
26 When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear.
27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”
28 Peter responded and said to Him, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.”
29 And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and came toward Jesus.
30 But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and when he began to sink, he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus reached out with His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”
32 When they got into the boat, the wind stopped.
33 And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “You are truly God’s Son!”
34 When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret.
35 And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent word into all that surrounding region and brought to Him all who were sick;
36 and they pleaded with Him that they might just touch the border of His cloak; and all who touched it were cured.
