What does the worship service look like at Christ Church Highland Park (CCHP)?
The main difference between a service at Lake Forest and Highland Park is the size of the congregation—the Highland Park sanctuary holds 150 people. We believe that many people will actually chose to attend Christ Church Highland Park for this very reason.
Does CCHP offer all of the same programs as CCLF?
We offer full children's programming from infants through Middle School, however, Compass (our 8th grade confirmation program) and SHYG are currently only offered at the Lake Forest Campus. Men's Fraternity is open to everyone and held at the Christ Church Crossroads campus on Thursday nights and the Lake Forest Campus on Friday mornings. Women's Bible Connection and other programs are open to everyone but held in the Lake Forest or Christ Church Crossroads campus.
Who preaches at CCHP?
The 9:00 am service offers live teaching from a team of teachers. The Campus Pastor and a team of others will deliver a sermon very similar to the one Mike (or the guest preacher) has prepared and is preaching live at Lake Forest.
The 11:00 am service offers video teaching from the senior pastor (or the guest pastor) which is being preached live at the Lake Forest Campus.
Both services include a full worship band, a 30-35 minute sermon, and our Lighthouse program for kids.
What are the children's programs like at CCHP?
To address the Sunday worship and ministry needs of our children and young adults, Highland Park offers customized services to the following groups: infants, walker/2s, early childhood, and grade school. Children in these groups are dropped off in their rooms prior to the start of the service.
We believe it is vital that our children be exposed to the gospel of Christ. As a result, each room offers developmentally appropriate lessons.
Middle School students meet during the 10:00 am fellowship hour in between services and are encouraged to participate in either worship service, by worshiping in the congregation or serving with Lighthouse.
