We have had two church members or regular attenders exposed to COVID-19 who have since tested positive for COVID-19.

We are in the process of sanitizing the building and using our two electrostatic disinfecting guns to clean every surface of the building but we wanted to make sure you had all the information you needed to make a decision that is best for you and your family.

We want to remind you that you can attend church here on Facebook Live or the Online Campus here  at 10:30am every Sunday morning.

Church Update September 11th

It's awesome to see the incredible things God is doing in the middle of the Covid-19 crisis. We are so excited to follow God's lead as we move into a multi-strategy as a church. Check out the video update here!

Church Update April 11th

Our church’s vision statement is to connect with God, connect with others, and connect others to God. So if you have been looking for a church, are unable to attend your own church or you’re a regular attender of High Hill Christian Church- this week we have set up a Drive Thru Connecting Point for the community. This will continue as long as we are meeting exclusively online.

The top box has Family Ministry resources for birth-5th graders and their families to do church at home together, individually packaged communion for anyone who would like to take it, offering envelopes, connection cards to share your contact information. As well as LOL cards to give out to elderly or immune comprised neighbors who may need help during this time.

We believe we’re still called to love out loud even during times of uncertainty. So each week we are not meeting at our physical location, families will be encouraged to bring and drop something for one of our community partner organizations. This week we are collecting diapers for the Montgomery County Head Start & Early Head Start to give out to the families they serve. The bottom box is for collecting diapers.

You also can join us online Sunday at 10:30am highhillchristianchurch.org/churchonline

Church Update March 18th

Church family, we wanted to provide you with updates as we continue to closely monitor the influenza, coronavirus, and other illnesses as they impact our local communities. In recent weeks we have seen illnesses hit our church family hard.

Church services and programs (Sundays and throughout the week) are STILL ON! We are monitoring updates closely, and are adding precautionary measures to our existing Health & Wellness policy that can be viewed by using this link: https://HighHillChristianChurch.org/wellness

2 Timothy 1:7 says, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." As believers, we have the authority which Christ has given us to pray against the spread of any disease and to pray for healing for those who have been and are currently sick in our community. We also have the ability through His Spirit to bring peace and comfort amid anxiety and confusion by reaching out to those in need.

Take a moment and look around you. Who are those people in your life that may be thankful for a helping hand during this time? Offer to run errands for those who have high-risk health concerns or send a note of encouragement. The tendency is to go into a self-protective mode and isolate; however, we can show others that they are not alone. How the church loves well is important. Challenge yourself to Love Out Loud & encourage someone today. Sometimes the most powerful thing we can do is reach out and let someone know we care.

Through it all, pray and ask the Lord to point us back to His truth in all we say and do.

Church Update March 13th

2 Timothy 1:7 says, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." As believers, we have the authority which Christ has given us to pray against the spread of any disease and to pray for healing for those who have been and are currently sick in our community.

  • Begin your prayer time by praising God for His sovereignty. He still is and always will be in control of all things. Pray that we will trust Him to help us navigate this season of uncertainty.

  • Pray for wisdom for governmental leaders, the CDC, researchers, other medical personnel, leaders in churches, and other strategic places to respond wisely and appropriately.

  • Pray for cooperation and collaboration among medical agencies and personnel around the world to work together for the well-being and health of all people.

  • Pray for the protection of doctors, nurses, crisis response teams, emergency first responders, researchers and other medical professionals who risk their lives to protect ours.

  • Pray for comfort and healing for those stricken with illness in this season. Pray they will receive the quality health care they need to regain health and strength. Pray their healing.

  • Pray for the protection and safety of those considered “at-heightened-risk.”

  • Pray for peace, calmness, freedom from fear, anxiety, and panic among individuals and communities.

  • Pray we would be proactive in proclaiming the gospel and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.

HOW YOU CAN PRAY

Take a moment and look around you. Who are those people in your life that may be thankful for a helping hand during this time? Offer to run errands for those who have high-risk health concerns or send a note of encouragement. The tendency is to go into a self-protective mode and isolate; however, we can show others that they are not alone. How the church loves well is important. Challenge yourself to Love Out Lout and encourage someone today. Sometimes, the most powerful thing we can do is reach out and let someone know we care.

 

Through it all, pray and ask the Lord to point us back to His truth in all we say and do.

HOW YOU CAN LOVE OUT LOUD

Children are already receiving messages about the significance of social modifications through their parent/adult anxieties and subtle or explicit displays of it. How we deal with conversations about COVID-19 shares much in common with how we discuss other things that impact our communities—global warming, gun violence, racism, police shootings, etc. In these instances we recognize the need to inform in a developmentally appropriate matter without sheltering, to caution where necessary, and to keep anxieties from becoming overwhelming for children.

Here are some resources to help you have conversations about the situation with your child:

Church Family,

 

Over the past several weeks, our staff and elders have worked closely with our community partners in the area of medical and emergency management. We have been regularly monitoring the health crisis in our state and our communities. We have met with church leaders down the street and around the country as we work together to plan the best path forward to resume in-person gatherings at our High Hill Campus.

 

We have spent many hours praying and evaluating how to best serve our communities going forward. We have seen God do some incredible things over the past several weeks during this health crisis. Our team has been able to pray and counsel many who have experienced anxiety and pain, and we’ve watched God bring beauty out of the darkness.

 

As we move into the coming weeks and months, we have outlined a detailed plan and have some exciting things to share over the coming weeks. Our plan to resume in-person gatherings is outlined below.

 

We will resume in-person Sunday Morning Worship Experiences at the High Hill Campus on May 17th. We will be offering two identical services at 9:15am & 10:30am. During the month of May, these services will be family services, and no programming will be available for Family Ministry. Family Ministry will be providing activity bags for Birth - 5th Grade to pick up at the Family Ministry Hub throughout May. Our Online Campus will continue to have a 10:30am service available on Facebook, YouTube, over the phone, and through our website. Our Family Ministry environments will resume meeting during the 10:30am service only beginning on June 7th. We will be announcing a detailed plan about Adult Connection Groups and Family Ministry Summer Life events in the coming weeks. In the event of a positive case of Covid-19 we will inform the church via social media and email that a member or regular attender has tested positive.

 

Per the recommendation of our local officials, we will be reorganizing and limiting the seating capacity of the High Hill Campus as well as continuing to follow a strict cleaning and disinfecting protocol. Hand Sanitizer and Masks will be available at Connecting Point, and we will continue to provide resources through our Drive-Thru Connecting Point during May. We have altered some of the elements of service to accommodate best practices in the area of health and hygiene. This includes changing our Coffee Bar from self-serve to being manned by a volunteer, placing individually packaged communion in the seats, providing offering boxes at Connecting Point in addition to the offering opportunities on our church app, website, and Text-To-Give.

 

We are excited about what God is doing through our church and in the communities we serve. As we move forward and begin resuming in-person gatherings at the High Hill Campus, we ask that you help us: Remaining home if you or someone in your family feels sick. Respect social distancing between individuals. Wash your hands regularly. Respect elder and staff directions while at the High Hill Campus.

Church Update April 29th

Church family,

Our staff and elders have spent many hours over the past 10 days praying, discussing, seeking wise counsel, and coordinating with our local health and government officials, including those at the Montgomery County Health Department MO & the Montgomery County MO Sheriff's Office. As we continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation, we want to lead well in every decision we make for the sake of our growing church body, our community, and those most vulnerable. We want to be prayerful and wise, following God’s direction and leading through this rather than reacting.

With that in mind, our leadership has decided to continue to postpone all in-person gatherings, except for staff and elders, through April 12th. We know this crisis has caused unexpected financial and physical burdens for many, and we continue to pray daily for the individuals and families we serve in our community.

We are also very excited about what God is doing in and through our church during this time. Because of your generosity, we have been able to provide diapers and baby-wipes to families in need in our community via our community partners. We also look forward to being a source of encouragement this week to nursing home residents in our community by providing homemade, hand-written cards in the Love Out Loud Drop at our Drive-Thru Connecting Point.

Our first High Hill Christian Church Online worship service was awesome! We hope that your family enjoyed heartfelt worship and community in a different way through that experience. We were able to Connect 160 people with God and Connect them with each other on Sunday with 11 New Here guests joining us online across four platforms.

Our team is working hard to create even more opportunities for you to Connect with God, Connect with Others, and Connect Others with God. This upcoming Sunday, we will have a Family Ministry Worship Experience Online at 9:15 am for our Early Childhood & Elementary families. We will also have a Student Ministry Worship Experience Online at 5 pm for our 6th to 12th grade students. Last night we hosted our first Virtual Connection Group and had several in attendance who Connected with God and Connected with each other.

This Sunday, Pastor Jim will be finishing up the final message in our Exodus: Deliverance series and will be kicking off a new 3 part series on April 5th called Doubting Thomas. Thank you for your faithfulness in giving and attending. We are excited about the many things that God is doing in us and through us and look forward to sharing those with you in the coming weeks.

God is moving in and through our church, and we are grateful for your continued support as we seek to Love Out Loud by Connecting with God, Connecting with Others, and Connecting Others with God! We can’t wait to worship with you Online again this Sunday at 10:30 am.

The Staff & Elders of High Hill Christian Church

Church Update March 26th

Church family,

As we have continued to monitor the spread of the Coronavirus and other illnesses in our community, it has become apparent that we should rethink our plans for Sunday services. We have been in close contact with the Montgomery County Health Department MOMontgomery County MO Sheriff's Office and other medical and community leaders and there is a growing concern for group gatherings. After much prayer and discussion among the staff and elders, we have decided to take additional action.

Therefore, we are suspending our worship gatherings at our physical location this Sunday and will be moving our worship experience to our new online streaming services (see details below). Please know that we do not make this decision lightly. We believe that corporate worship is a biblical mandate for Christians, and we want to resume in-person gatherings as quickly as possible. However, we also want to be diligent in keeping our church family healthy.

This Sunday, we will be streaming at 10:30 a.m. and our staff and elders will be represented in these services and available to pray with and encourage your family. We will be, in next 24 hours setting up a drive through resource hub at our physical location (852 Booneslick Rd. High Hill, MO 63350) that will have a location for you to drop off prayer requests, pick up communion for your family to share together with us online this weekend, give your tithes and offerings and pick up Family Ministry resources to engage and equip your children and students at home.

Here’s how you can join our online worship experiences on Sunday morning:

Go to www.HighHillChristianChurch.org/churchonline to connect with us, give, and get resources to worship together from the comfort of your home
Go to hhcc.online.church to view the live stream directly
Go to www.facebook.com/HighHillChristianChurch to watch the stream through our Facebook community
Go to www.youtube.com/HHChristianChurch to watch it on youtube and catch up on previous messages

If you are unable to join us online we will have more information in the next 24 hours on how to join us over the phone by calling in or signing up to receive a call when service starts.

You may also go to the home page of the High Hill Christian Church website and click on the Church Online tab.

We’re also suspending all other church activities through March 31st at this time. Our staff and elders will still be available for prayer and if you need support during this time (picking up prescriptions, helping pick up groceries, etc.) The church leadership will continue to be in communication daily with local medical and government officials, as this is an ever evolving situation.

We encourage you not to let these circumstances negatively effect your spiritual rhythms. Our staff and elders will be working in the coming days to prepare more online resources for your daily discipleship if the need to meet exclusively online becomes prolonged.

Please also continue to be faithful in your giving. If you typically give at church, consider giving online at www.HighHillChristianChurch.org/give or by texting “give” to 84321.

We covet your understanding, your support, and most of all, your prayers as we continue to respond to this unprecedented set of circumstances. We will see you online for worship this Sunday at 10:30am.

The Staff & Elders of High Hill Christian Church

Church Update March 17th

Our Elders & Staff are working closely with our community partners, in the area of medical and emergency management. Our staff is communicating regularly to assess updates and make recommendations for our church’s response, including developing contingencies for worship gatherings and other programming. We will continue to hold services and programs (Sundays and throughout the week). In addition, we are also adding the following measures:

  • We suggest that handshaking not be done as we welcome each other.

  • Rather than our greeters handing out bulletins, we will make them available at your seat along with our Connection Cards and Offering Envelopes. You can also receive the bulletin digitally by texting "bulletin" to 636.549.8008 or visiting our online bulletin page.
