“We initially started out just showing up for Sunday services. That’s OK. It wasn’t bad. But God has continued to call us further…”
- Amy and Jayson Bales, Highland Park Adults
Welcome to Highland Park United Methodist Church’s Adult Ministry! Our goal is to help all men and women ages 35-60 become deeply devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Married, single, parent, non-parent, working, not working, you belong here.
HPUMC provides opportunities for adults to worship, grow, help others, and enjoy the lives God has given us. Here’s a little bit about why we do what we do:
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing… This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.” - John 15:5,8
In John 15, Jesus describes a certain way he wants his disciples to live. He tells them he wants the disciples to remain in, or stay with, him as he remains in the Father (God). The reason why Jesus wants this kind of relationship with his disciples is because he wants them to bear fruit, or be productive, in their lives. Jesus wants his disciples to do something real, meaningful, and lasting with their lives so that other people see God in them.
We believe Christ still wants us to remain in him today. Jesus is the source of all love, joy, and goodness in the world, and we want to stay close to that source so we can bear fruit in our lives. We want to be the best moms, dads, singles, husbands, wives, employees, church members, etc. we can be!
Join us as we learn what it means to be close to Jesus and live fruitful lives.
