Adult Christian Formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation. Highlands United Methodist Church provides a diverse series of learning opportunities to help young adults grow in their relationship with God and neighbor, develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and their faith tradition and participate in the life and ministries of the faith community.

Throughout the year, Highlands provides special program series regarding faith development topics. Recently, the Emerging Voices series provided a seven-week Summer Sunday School class for all adults in which TED Talks or similar films were used to foster discussion of different faith perspectives. This series was led by our young adult church members. On Wednesday evenings this Fall, we offered a nine-week speaker series covering diverse faith topics such as faith and healing, Islam, religious extremism, the Iona community, the Taizé movement, and the Quakers.
Young Adults with children may also be interested in opportunities for Families.
