Highland Park holds to the truth that every believer has been given a mission to love with the Love of God. The two greatest commandments, "Love God and love your neighbor", are simple in concept, but many Christians find themselves uncertain on how to live them out. What does it look like to 'love your neighbor as yourself'? Who is the neighbor you are to love? How do you go from simply living in your city to #loveyourcity?
Whether you are a seasoned believer seeking a new perspective, a student in youth group, a family, or are new in your faith in Christ, we are inviting you to discover the answers to these questions and more!
#LoveYourCity is prayerfully designed for our congregation to take a Sunday every June to close the doors of our building, so we go out into our city and be The Church by serving and loving our community.
