Our vision is for a Faith and Fellowship Center that is an active and daily part of the lives of the congregation of First Presbyterian Church, Highlands, as well as the community which our church serves. The center should be a center of faith, love, and service to God. It should be our gift to Him in thanks for his wonderful gift to us.
The Annual Meeting of the Congregation takes place in January every year, immediately following the 11:00 service with a luncheon in Coleman Hall. At that time Annual Reports from each Ministry Team are presented to the congregation.

The process of creating the strategic plan for the First Presbyterian Church of Highlands began in June of 2011. The intent was to set goals for a three to five year time period that support the mission of the church and achieve a clear vision. An intensive process was pursued to thoroughly examine all aspects of the church. The Vision 20/20 Team led the effort, utilizing focus groups and surveys, to gather as much information from as many sources as possible. From the compiled information, a vision was cast, meant to be aspirational, and to pave the road for a strong future. Once achieved, the First Presbyterian Church of Highlands will be a stronger, more vibrant, and diverse entity with a bright and stable future.
