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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
TO KNOW CHRIST AND TO BE COMMITTED DISCIPLES IN
GOD'S KINGDOM HERE ON EARTH
Established in 1885, First Presbyterian Church has remained a vibrant presence in the Highlands community, serving the spiritual needs of the congregation and beyond. First Presbyterian Church of Highlands was listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior.

In June 2014, we dedicated our Memorial Garden, located on the southwest edge of the church property. The Memorial Garden serves as a beautiful, quiet place of respite and reflection.
The garden provides a well-maintained and consecrated site for the interment of ash remains and memorialization of church members and their families.
