Care Groups… A place to connect, belong and grow!
Our goal is to build strong, caring relationships in an informal setting. One of the primary ways we build relationships and cultivate fellowship with each other here is through a network of small groups—what we call “Care Groups.” While we are joined to all believers in the local church, Care Groups allow us to relate more deeply with a small number of people. An integral part of our church’s ministry, Care Groups provide an important context for accomplishing a number of biblical priorities.
Application of God’s word to our lives. Merely hearing God’s word is insufficient; we must apply it to our lives for there to be fruit. Care Groups enable us to do this together. We seek to apply the Bible’s teaching, review Sunday messages, discuss Christian books, and use a variety of other resources with the intention of growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Pursuit of Biblical fellowship. Genuine fellowship isn’t practical in a large crowd. Care Groups provide a place where we can build intimate relationships, care for one another, and help each other grow in our relationship with God.
Ministry to one another. God has made us dependent on each other, and Care Groups provide a context where we can minister to each other with the gifts that God has given us. Meetings often include times of prayer for one another and opportunities for individuals to exercise spiritual gifts for the edification of others.

Periodically, Highland Park is responsible to deliver Meals on Wheels. This ministry has a time commitment of one week, five times a year. It takes about an hour from start to finish, 11 am to 12 noon. Parents and children are welcome to help as those who are shut in especially love to see little ones at their door along with a hot meal. If you would like to help in this ministry, contact Gina Gwinner or the church office, (402)564-5853.
