Care Groups

Our Vision and Highest Desire

Exalting Jesus Christ, Loving One Another & Giving Ourselves Away (Matthew 28:19-20)

We know that Sunday mornings alone are not sufficient to cultivate relationships centered on loving and serving one another. Therefore, our church provides what we call, “Care Groups” which meet throughout Columbus, twice a month. Care Groups are one of the primary ways, we accomplish our Vision as a church.

The groups serve as a relationship network that facilitate fellowship and provide deliberate discipleship. These groups are made up of 10-20 people from all stages of life that typically meet in someone’s home or at the church. Groups generally enjoy a meal or dessert together, pray together, share life together, and study God’s Word together. We encourage every member of Highland Park to be involved in a Care group.

“Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.” Romans 12:9-13
