Highpoint Episcopal Community Church Welcomes You

Sanctuary cross


We are delighted that you have found us. Highpoint Episcopal Community Church ("HECC") is one of Sandy Springs' best 
kept secrets.  Our Church is located on top of a gently sloping hill in the middle of eight beautiful, largely wooded acres along High Point Road in Sandy Springs. At HECC, we provide a church home to those who want to focus on spirituality, pastoral care, and fellowship in a caring, nurturing environment, where Christian “community” is the focus.  


At HECC, we extend a warm welcome and invitation to you to worship with us this Sunday, whether you're just visiting Atlanta, curious about Christianity, looking for a place to worship, or searching for a community that will embrace you as you are. Come join us Sunday morning as we celebrate God's goodness and grace.  Let God's word challenge you to share His light with the world. 


We cordially invite you to come and see what is so special about Highpoint Episcopal Community Church -- the friendliest little neighborhood church in Sandy Springs.

Armed Forces Bake-Off. 


Soldier in battle gear participates in ceremony to open conference. On Sunday afternoon, December 17th, HECC will host the     annual Armed Forces Bake-Off, a creation of the Rev. Rich Sanders and his wife, Rebekah.  Rich announced recently that “[o]ur annual event, the Armed Forces Bake-Off, brings our friends together to celebrate and acknowledge our men and women serving in the military who will be overseas during the holidays.   Every year, on the same day as the Army-Navy football game, we invite our friends and family to our home to bake goodies, package them and put the finishing touch in each box ? a homemade card.  We also pack several hundred gift bags to give to the military service members traveling through our airport during the holidays.  Alas, we have outgrown our kitchen and need a larger space to accommodate all of the helping hands preparing and assembling the treats to be sent around the world. We want to continue our tradition [by using] . . . the HECC kitchen on Sunday, December 17th, 2017 from Noon to 4:00, with . . . a window of time before and after to set-up and clean-up.  St. Michael's Mission, the non-profit, tax-exempt ministry that Rebekah and I started in 2012, works to aid veterans who are in need of soul repair. We help by offering social service resources to them so they can rebuild their lives after re-entry into a world that often is unaware of the injury that war inflicts . . . their unseen wounds.  Many of the service men and women who will receive our packages, might later come to us in need of spiritual care.  We want to be able to offer support.”  Says Rebekah: “[If you] know someone who is in the military who is unable to make it home for the holidays, we need their APO address so we can get a goodie package to them!” Please send this contact information directly to Rebekah via her email: Rebekah Sanders (rms30306@hotmail.com).

HECC Welcomes American violist Jacob Clewell in Concert.

 

Image result for viola photosStanding in the vanguard of musicians in his generation, American violist Jacob Clewell visits HECC on Thursday, December 28th at 6:30 p.m. to present a thrilling recital of works by Brahms, Vieuxtemps, Paganini, and others. Known for his virtuosic ability and emotionally moving performances, Jacob is a first prize winner of multiple competitions, a gold medalist of the Vancouver International Music Competition, and recently made his first appearance in New York City’s esteemed Carnegie Hall. He has made recital appearances in Canada, England, and across the United States, and given chamber performances at the Mendocino and Scotia festivals, and at Le Domaine Forget in Quebec. Jacob will be joined by Richard "Ben" Leaptrott at the piano, former music director of Atonement for over 24 years. There will be a “meet the artist” reception immediately following the concert. Because this performance is graciously underwritten in part by Mosbacher Fine Art, ticket prices are set at very reasonable rates of $15 for adults and $10 for students (compared to the per person ticket price of $300 for Jacob’s recent Carnegie Hall performance). You may find Jacob’s full bio at www.jacobclewell.com.
