 Join us for Worship

We have two services of worship: 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.  Christian Education for all ages is also available at 9:30 a.m., which makes the 11 a.m. our larger service. During the Summer (from Memorial Day to Labor Day) there is only one service of worship on Sunday mornings. Four times a year, a Sunday evening service is prepared and led by students and youth of the church.

 

Getting Help When You Visit

 

If you have questions or need support finding your way, ask one of the greeters or ushers near the entrances to the sanctuary.

 

What to Wear

 

We invite you to come as you are. You’ll find a range of attire among the church. Some people prefer dresses or a jacket and tie. There are even a few suits. And there are some who prefer jeans and a polo. Most people are somewhere in the middle; casual but neatly dressed.

 

Parkingphoto

 

While street parking is available, we encourage people to use the church’s parking lot located along Eastern Star Road off of Highland Avenue.

 

Entering the Church Building

 

There are several entrances to the church. Access to the sanctuary is available near the corner of Cherokee Rd and Highland Avenue along either street. You may enter the Christian Education building by using the stairway at Highland Avenue and Eastern Star Rd.

 

Accessibility

 

A handicap ramp is located adjacent to the Highland Ave. entrance into the sanctuary. A designated wheelchair space is located inside the sanctuary. It is in the sixth row from the front, on the aisle on the baptismal font side. Ushers will direct you further if needed.

 

Nursery and Child Care from 9:15 to 12:15

 

DSC_6872Childcare is available on Sunday mornings from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and during any extra worship services throughout the year. We offer a safe, loving, and welcoming environment for all children and their parents. If you have questions or concerns, please, contact Doodle Harris, Associate Pastor doodle.harris@hpclouisville.org or 502-451-2910 ext. 240.

 

From 9:15 to 12:15 our Infants go to the Nursery, which is located on the second floor of the church building in the “Children’s Education Wing” on the  Our nursery worker is a staff member, and is accompanied by volunteer assistants.

 

From 9:15 to 12:15 our Toddlers and Twos go to the Twos room or the Fun Room to run and play. The Twos room is located in the Walker-Nevin Building on the middle floor in the first room on the right and the Fun room is located in the basement, first right.

 

During 11 a.m. worship services, Preschoolers and kindergartners are offered Bible Buddies, an alternative for those who do not wish to remain in worship. Threes may need to go directly to Bible Buddies, but it is our hope that Fours and K’s would begin in worship with their parents, then come out for Bible Buddies following the “Time for Young Disciples” or after the first scripture reading on Communion Sundays. Bible Buddies is located in the Walker-Nevin Building on the middle floor in the first room on the left. Bible Buddies is led by dedicated church members. The children hear a story, sing, dance, have a snack, pray, and play.

Our community gathers in the Fellowship Hall to share conversation with one another before and after the 11 a.m. worship service. Highland Presbyterian Church proudly serves Fair Trade coffee and teas as part of responsibility to the environment and people.

We Want to Welcome You

 

During services a folder is passed for all worshipers to sign. We encourage everyone to leave ways for us to be in touch to offer a more personal welcome during the week. Your email, phone number and address are helpful to do so. We won’t share your information with anyone, its use is limited to our ministry of hospitality. We don’t ask visitors to be identified in any public way, but we do want to be welcoming to all who visit our wonderful faith community.

 

Offering

 

Toward the end of the service there is a time when we dedicate our offerings. This means money, time, the work of our hands and hearts. While people who are a committed part of the church as members or friends regularly offer financial contribution to what God is doing through the people of Highland Presbyterian Church, it is not required of visitors. If you are a visitor, we consider your presence with us your offering and we are thankful for your presence. If you still want to give, please know that you are supporting our ministries in Louisville and beyond.IMG_3109

 

 

Communion and Baptism

 

The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper or Communion is celebrated monthly, typically the first Sunday at both services. Gluten-free options are always available. The Sacrament of Baptism is offered to people of all ages who request it. For infant Baptism, one of the parents must be a member of the church. To inquire about Baptism, contact one of the pastoral staff. To inquire about joining, contact the church office. You can find contact information here.
