Notice Regarding the COVID-19 Crisis:

As the virus continues to spread, we continue to seek the wisdom of health care professionals and government leaders regarding the best options for reopening. The church remains closed for the foreseeable future. We don't have a set date for reopening at this time, but our Session meets monthly to discuss our options. The safety of our congregation and community remains our top priority.

Since we regrettably cannot meet as a congregation in our sanctuary, we have worked out a “next-best” plan for holding worship services. Please check your email every Saturday evening or Sunday morning for a link to the Youtube channel, which will air our Sunday service of that week. If you are not on our church email list, you may find the video by searching Youtube for “First Presbyterian Church of Highlands, NC,” and the services will appear according to date. If you would like to be added to our email list, please contact us at fpch@frontier.com.

We encourage you to view the video at 11:00 am so that we may all virtually attend worship together. Until we may meet again in person, Christ’s peace be with you all.


Adult Education

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Adult Education class is being conducted via the Zoom app until further notice. The class is relevant and thought-provoking, allowing for open discussion and exchange of ideas. The group meets on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Please call or email the church office for more information: 828-526-3175 / fpchmboone@frontier.com.

The Mullen Lecture for 2020 also had to be canceled. We hope to resume the lectures in the summer of 2021.

The Men’s Prayer Group meets every Monday morning at the church in the Highlander Room on the lower level of the Faith and Fellowship building. Meetings begin at 8 am with a devotion and prayer. The meeting is followed by breakfast at a local restaurant. All men are invited to attend.

Two Women’s Studies groups meet monthly. The Wednesday Morning group meets at 10:30 am in the Library on the first Wednesday of each month. Women are encouraged to bring something to share for lunch following the program. The Thursday Evening group meets at 7:00 pm at the Fisher home on the first Thursday of each month. All women are encouraged to attend one or both groups.

We hold seasonal series (e.g. Advent and Lent) for deeper scriptural study.

The Mullen Lecture Series seeks to bring in acclaimed speakers from diverse theological backgrounds during the summer season.
