High Pointe 3.0 January 2024 -

Every weekender we share the history of High Pointe – that rich history includes two churches: Christ Memorial and Trinity Covenant. It also includes the journey God has guided us through, from days of darkness and lack to days of light and plenty.

Reviewing the history of High Pointe is both humbling and encouraging. I encourage you, who are newer to High Pointe, to find members who have been here over twenty years, buy them coffee, and ask them to tell the story. Everything good that has happened here, is happening here, and will happen here is only because of God. God’s hand upon us is the only explanation for why High Pointe still exists. And that gives us, as elders, great hope for the future.

We are excited about the future God has for High Pointe.

    • There were five elders.
    • Not enough giving to pay the expenses.
    • $4.5 million in debt

  • High Pointe 3.0 | January 2024 | The Lord is bringing us to a new season of ministry.
