Seniors in Motion (SIM) is a dance program designed to address some of the major health concerns among the elderly.  These globally identified health issues include fall prevention, depression, isolation, anxiety, and decrease in activities of daily living.  A major concern is the lack of access for this population to programs that would address these health concerns.  Over the past several years there have been several international studies on the positive effects of dance as prevention for some of these health issues.
The goal of the SIM program is to improve, through the offering of dance classes, the quality of life for this population.
Please join us for a free fun presentation in the fellowship hall Tuesday November 14th at 2 pm. We will dance as well as watch a performance by our dancers from Episcopal Place. All are welcome!

All are invited to join us for a very special worship service for All Saints’ Day on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 10:30 am, when we will remember by name those members and friends of Highlands United Methodist Church who have died in the faith of Christ during the past year.

The Choir will lead our worship, incorporating Gabriel Fauré’s setting of the ancient and image-rich texts of the Requiem, the ancient Christian communion service for the departed. It is one of the most frequently sung and universally beloved works in the sacred repertoire, yet it is rarely experienced in the context for which it was written, which is a fully choral service of Holy Communion in celebration of the life of someone who has passed into life eternal.  

In the church calendar, The Feast of All Saints is the day when we remember those who have died in the faith of Christ. In our remembrance we express the communion of the living and the dead in the mystical body of Christ by a commemoration of those who, having professed faith in the living Christ in days past, have entered into the nearer presence of their Lord. We pray that the transcendent beauty of this music will reveal something of the peace, comfort, and surpassing joy of heaven to all who attend.  All are welcome.

Project ID Agency Training

  • Highlands United Methodist Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Project ID will hold its annual training for local agencies and ministries who partner with us to be a referring agency. Over 50 agencies and ministries refer to us to help their clients obtain a birth certificate and/or state ID in order to get housing, employment, and education.  We work with agencies who specialize in housing, reentry programs, men/women/family shelters, rehabilitation programs, health care services,  and much more.  The referral system works both ways so that we can refer folks in crisis to those agencies throughout the year.   Our training is also open to church members who would like to learn more about this ministry of Highlands in order to volunteer, educate others, or support its work.

Other training sessions are:

To RSVP, please call the church office at 933-8751 or email office@highlandsumc.net.
