2914 SE MICHIGAN, TOPEKA, KS 66605 ~ 785-266-6555

Welcome to the website of Highland Park United Methodist Church (HPUMC), a vibrant and vital congregation in southeast Topeka Kansas. Though we have a special long term connection to the Highland Park area of Topeka, we have active members throughout Topeka and Shawnee County. We are located at 29th and SE Michigan (map).
HPUMC strives to be a place where people of all backgrounds, ages, races and economic circumstances can feel welcome, valued and accepted. We believe that we are called by God to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in our community as a group of people and individually through the lives we lead. We don’t claim to have all the answers about God or the challenges people face, but we are constantly seeking more understanding together. Join us on this journey to be closer to God and each other!

Trunk or Treat

We will have our "Trunk or Treat" on Sunday, October 26th at 2:30 pm in the back parking lot. We will be giving out candy from our decorated "trunks." We will be serving hot dogs and drinks. The youth will have a cookie walk, trike races and games for the children to play. It will be a fun and safe time for all.

We want to hear from you!

The Worship Committee is already planning Christmas Eve services and we need to know what you think. We will for certain have a Christmas Eve service at 3:00 pm. But what we want to know is, how many Christmas Eve services do you think we should have in the evening - one or two? What time would you like to attend?

Please follow this Survey Monkey link to give us your answers!

Stewardship Sunday - October 12th

Stewardship Sunday is October 12th. Leading up to this important Sunday, we will show videos of people from our church telling us how "This Place Matters" which is our theme this year. In the upcoming weeks, you will see more videos until our campaign concludes. You may even see yourself in one of these videos. Come worship with us this Sunday as we praise God, hear Pastor Lynn's message and learn the many ways you can help support the ministries of our church.
