Have you ever played a White Elephant Gift Exchange? The idea is that you find something at home you no longer want, wrap it up, then add it to a pile of gifts to be fought over by the players. If you’ve ever played with the experts, there are some pretty horrible things in those piles—maybe even the worst gifts ever. Maybe you’ve been given some frustrating gifts to unwrap this Christmas season. This series will help you to overcome those difficult gifts through...

The last two weeks, we have seen people come to Christ in our Sunday morning services. I hope this does not brush past you gently. This means that if you bring people to church, there is a legitimate possibility that they will come to receive Jesus Christ as their Savior.
Here is a simple, applicable question: Who are you going to invite to come to church with you this Sunday? Is there that one person in your life and you keep getting that feeling in your heart that you should invite...

We've had a phenomenal evangelism week. We've knocked on every door within one mile of our church, plus a couple of other neighborhoods. When we knocked on their doors, we said, "We're from Church of the Highlands and would love to know if our church can do anything to serve you."
We've had all kinds of responses:
A shut-in elderly woman asked if someone would just sit there and talk with her because she was lonely.
A 15-year-old boy asked if...

If anyone had an excuse to feel they lacked God’s favor in life and give in to the horrible things around him, Joseph was that guy. From being abandoned by family to being used by someone intimately interested in him, the odds were against him. However, he focused on God through his tough times and got through it with favor from the Lord. In this series, you’ll learn about Joseph’s life and see how you, too, can overcome temptation and trials, then experience the FAVOR of God.

This is what it is all about. This past Sunday, we had our best offering we've ever had for a non-emphasis Sunday. Our attendance was the highest it has been in the last six...

Like the ancient Israelites, God’s people today often receive the gift of salvation but remain enslaved to sin. The truth is, our behavior is merely a result of whom or what we worship. Our gods influence our priorities, values, morality, choices, and ultimately our eternity. This message series focuses on life under the protection, wisdom, goodness, and love of our heavenly Father who loves us.
