What We Believe
God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct person.
We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus whose life, death, and resurrection demonstrate God's redeeming love.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst when we sense God's leading, God's challenging, or God's support and comfort, it's the Holy Spirit at work.
The Holy Bible
We believe that the Holy Bible is the primary authority for our faith and practice.
The kingdom, or reign, of God is both a present reality and future hope and is experienced by living the stories and teachings of Jesus.
The Church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ's life and ministry in the world today.
Grace — We understand grace as a gift from God – the undeserved, unmerited, and loving action of God in human existence. God’s grace is at work throughout our spiritual journeys – it prepares us, redeems us, and continually shapes us into the people we are created to be.
Sacraments — We recognize two sacraments, baptism and communion. Baptism marks the beginning of our lifelong journey as disciples of Jesus Christ. Communion nourishes and sustains us on the journey.
Inclusiveness — All are welcome to participate in the life and work of the church. No distinction is made because of racial or ethnic background, national origin, language, gender, age, handicapping, condition, or social status.
Where do I park?
Just look for the "Guest Parking" signs in front of the sanctuary (Building B). If these spots are already taken when you arrive, additional parking is available on all sides of the church.
Where is the Nursery during worship?
We are excited to reopen our Nursery during worship for children newborn through 1st grade. All Covid-19 protocols will be in place. Drop off will be at the wood doors of Building D (doors nearest playground).
Do you offer Children's Church during worship?
Children's Church is provided virtually during Sunday morning worship. Children are ALWAYS welcome in worship.
May I bring my children to the worship service?
Children are ALWAYS welcome in worship. If you decide you need childcare during worship, our ushers will be happy to assist you.
What should I wear to church?
We want you to feel comfortable in whatever you choose to wear, whether it's casual or dressy. On Sunday mornings, you'll see everything from jeans to business attire.

What is the style of music during worship?
On any given Sunday at Highland Valley, you might sing traditional hymns from our United Methodist Hymnal or hear beautiful solos from several of our gifted choir members, contemporary songs, or a wide variety of wonderful anthems by our Chancel Choir. On Wednesdays, The JOURNEY worships with contemporary songs.
Since I am not a United Methodist, will I still be able to participate in the sacrament of Holy Communion?
Absolutely. We practice an Open Table. A person does not have to be a United Methodist or a member of this particular church. We invite all who seek the presence of Christ in their lives and desire to receive God's grace to receive Holy Communion.
