Women's Ministry at Highland
Women’s WORD is a gathering of women, both new & seasoned in Bible study, who have a desire to go deeper in their faith by being taught the Word of God. It is our belief that as we study God’s words in community with other women we will be built up and better enabled to know God more, serve others better, encourage one another, and learn how to live worthy of the calling that the Bible reveals to us. Take the next step and join us.

Mothers Of Preschoolers (MOPS)
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Program: The MOPS International program at Highland is about celebrating motherhood, meeting needs, making connections, and experiencing God's love through relationships and resources.

Spend a refreshing and encouraging weekend with friends, and make new ones, by attending a spiritually nourishing weekend of exhortation from God’s Word along with rich fellowship with other women.
