SUNDAYS AT HIGHLANDS
Visiting a church can bring many questions and emotions, and as you consider Highlands, there are a few things I want you to know.
First, anyone is welcome to join us. If you’re curious about the Christian faith or have mixed emotions about organized religion, you are welcome here. We treat everyone with kindness and respect.
Second, I hope you’ll experience God. When we greet one another, sing, pray, and open the Bible together — we believe the Spirit of Christ is present and active. We gather on Sundays to contemplate who Jesus is and what He’s done for us, and to deepen our personal relationships with Him.
Third, I hope you’ll experience community. We hope to be a place where you can make friends and find people to walk with you through the ups and downs of life. If you don’t feel like our church is the right fit for you after visiting, I’ll be glad to recommend other churches in the area that might better serve you.
I hope to meet you soon!

Sunday Mornings at 9:00 & 10:45 AM
Highlands is located at 3031 NE 10th St in the Renton Highlands. We have two parking lots; the upper parking lot (10th St. entrance) leads right into the Worship Center and is the most accessibility friendly. You’ll find guest parking in our lower lot (Kirkland or 9th St entrance)—look for our blue Welcome Tents as you head inside and a greeter will be there to point you in the right direction.

We would love to help you get connected to our community. Whether you are interested in joining a community group, serving on a team, or checking out a class or study, there is a place here for you. Consider attending our next Discover Highlands luncheon to learn more about who we are and how you can get connected our community.
Our services usually last 70-80 minutes and include music, prayer, scripture reading, and a time of teaching. We generally serve communion once a month during the worship gathering and ushers distribute the elements amongst the rows. We also celebrate new life in Christ through baptisms during our services. You can learn more about getting baptized here.
We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before service begins to give yourself time to find parking and navigate our unique building. You are welcome to bring your coffee with you or we also have coffee and baked goods available in our lobby for you to enjoy. If you are bringing kids you may want to add some additional time for check-in. We have Guest Family Tables in our Preschool and Forum lobbies with volunteers ready to welcome you and help you through the process.
Most people at our church dress casually, while a few dress more formally. We encourage you to wear what you would be most comfortable in.
Worship at Highlands is about honoring and giving praise to God. We focus less on a specific style and more on preparing our hearts by singing songs of praise, confession and truths about who God is. We worship in a variety of styles with a mix of traditional psalms and hymns and contemporary songs. You may see people singing with hands up or down, eyes open or closed; please feel free to worship in the way that you feel led!
We believe worship is also more than just singing. Worship involves all that we do together as the body of Christ. At Highlands, you will also see us worshipping God through reading the Bible; listening to the preaching of God’s Word; sharing in an offering of our gifts and tithes; and spending time in fellowship after the service.
