Notice Regarding the COVID-19 Crisis:
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.
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.
