Life is better together.
IN THIS CHURCH…
WE ARE REAL
WE MAKE MISTAKES
WE SAY I’M SORRY
WE GIVE SECOND CHANCES
WE LAUGH, WE CRY
WE HAVE FUN
WE THROW PARTIES
WE INVITE OTHERS
Experience for yourself why we say life is better together.
We are all about loving God and loving people. And the best way we know how to do that is by being involved in a Community Group. It is together we can learn what it looks like in real life to love God and to love one another deeply. We believe we are better together.
Please fill out this form to help us connect you to a Community Group that best fits your interests. Someone from the groups team will contact you soon.
GROUPS FOR EVERY SEASON OF LIFE
Navigating the complexities of college and faith is hard, and it’s even harder when you try to do it alone. Joining a small group gives you a place to be known, to be real, and to grow in your faith.
Specialty groups that meet through the year and summer. Such as:
See the Family Ministry Page for more information on classes.
Are you craving personal connection now more than ever? We know social distancing makes that hard and we want to help. We are offering 4-week digital groups to make it easier for you to connect with others.
Meet for 4 to 6 weeks All Church Study’s happen in the September/January timeframe. Check back closer to those months for specific All Church Study options.
Our next all church study is kicking off this September 2020!
We will be studying “It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way” by Lisa Terkeurst.
Why did God let this happen? Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it? Bible teacher Lisa Terkeurst deeply understands daily disappointments in a life-altering loss. By walking through her own valley, she’s discovered that in God we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle well between our faith and feelings.
In this six week study, our Community Groups offer a safe place to share your disappointments, fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations, and life-giving perspectives for living in between Eden and eternity. Grab a friend and lead a group. Register now!
Group leaders create a place where people can be real and grow. Along the way, they find their faith grows as well. Perhaps it’s time for you to step up and lead. Curious about leadership? Take a step to see if group leadership is right for you.

Joining a group can be intimidating. We hope this information makes things easier. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
Community groups are small gatherings of individuals who meet weekly for friendship, Bible study, and prayer. Groups are for adults of all ages, stages of life, and spiritual maturity.
We have Community Groups throughout Natrona County. Groups meet Sunday through Saturday; daytime and evenings. All of our community groups meet in group members’ homes, in local businesses, or at our church on Wednesday when there are kids and youth programming.
Typically, a Community Group will commit to meet once a week for 7-8 months. Summers are apart of our natural rhythm of rest so we follow a much more relaxed schedule in June, July and August. Groups may only meet 2-3 times in the summer for picnics, concerts, etc.
The primary way we connect people into community groups is through online registration and through our Ignite. First, sign up by filling out our connect card and tell us a little more about yourself and your family.
Within a few days, you will be contacted by the Community Groups Team and we will provide you with your next steps to joining a group. We will register you for the next Ignite. Our goal is to get you connected with a group as soon as possible.
Ignite is the on-ramp for getting connected to Community Groups. This is a fun, highly relationship-based experience. Ignite is intentionally designed to help you begin creating meaningful relationships with people at Highland and to connect you to God in new and meaningful ways. Ignite meets for 6 weeks. It occurs once in the fall, twice in the winter months and one time during the summer. Contact our Community Groups Team to sign up for the next Ignite. You don’t want to miss this experience!
Most groups (that include families with children) have a childcare plan. Some groups provide babysitters while others meet at the church during times that childcare is provided.
All Community Groups are designed to include all ages, men and women, married couples, and singles. Attending Ignite is the absolute best way to ensure that you are connected to the right people at this particular place in your journey.
Yes, contacting our Community Groups Team will ensure that you are connected to the best group for you.
We want everyone to feel comfortable in their Community Group. If you attend a group and feel, for whatever reason, that it is not a “good fit” for you, we will find another group for you to try. There is a group for you!
Twice a year we have an all-church study (preaching and group curriculum is designed to go hand in hand) and groups go through the same study. During other times groups choose their own study. During the summer Community Groups focus on similar interests and activities.
