Message: Finding Your Mystic: Listening Beyond the Voices

Sunday, March 18th - 8 am chapel | 10:30 am sanctuary

We often have a “cast of characters” living inside our heads that love to carry on endless conversations–each from their own perspective. 

Getting our True Self into the chairperson’s seat in the committee meeting does not mean ignoring those voices of pessimism, people-pleasing or accusation, but instead listening intently to them and not letting them bully us into action based on fear. Letting them in and letting them go is the prayer of the mystic within.

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!
