For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

Service is at the core of who we are as Highland Baptist Church.
Our aim is to encourage and equip all of our members with regular opportunities to put their faith into action.
Those opportunities are two-fold: Internal and External.

Serve Internally at our church

Use your unique gifts to help build the Kingdom.

Membership and connection to the local church matter far more than we traditionally give them credit. God did not create believers to run the race of faith alone, he created us for community, and because of that we have expectations as members of His global church to engage in active service. Some of the ways folks serve internally at our church are:

  •  Worship
  • Production
  • Children's Ministry
  • Student Ministry
  • Benevolence
  • Connection Groups
  • Nursery
  • VBS
  • Upward

And countless other opportunities throughout the year!

Serving Externally at our Church

Not only do we value internal service, but we have an expectation and responsibility to do external service.
We are blessed in Shelbyville to partner with incredible organizations like:
Awake, ALC, God's Kitchen, Touched Twice Clinic, and countless other service needs.
