Ministries

 

There are many different ministry services and opportunities available to experience God’s  love at Highland Park Baptist Church.  We encourage you to become part of our family by joining us as we serve a risen Savior.  An encouraging reminder about serving in a ministry:

  • Ministry is God’s idea, not ours.
  • Ministry is a privilege, not a problem.
  • Ministry enhances personal growth.
  • Ministry is pleasing to God.
