New Modern Worship Service

We have added a new worship service for the Highland Park UMC! This new service starts at at 9:15 am in the chapel. It is an upbeat and modern service with live music and a message by Pastor Lynn. If the spirit moves you, join the team by picking up a percussion instrument as you enter. Come join us and invite your friends to our new worship service!

Beginning Anew Worship Service 

We are an all inclusive, very casual, interactive, different kind of worship experience every Saturday night at HPUMC Dawson Hall. 

We begin each evening with a community pot luck dinner at 5:30 pm and then at 6 pm we start the PowerPoint presentation with an opening prayer, followed by an opening video. We share scripture, sing songs and the message is given by either Pastor Lynn Lamberty or one of the retired Pastors who are members of Highland Park United Methodist Church.

We want everyone to feel welcome and included, so if you are looking for a church home, or looking for something less than traditional in your worship, please come check us out. We might just be what you are looking for!
