Highpoint Episcopal Community Church Welcomes You

 


We are delighted that you have found us. Highpoint Episcopal Community Church is one of Sandy Springs' best 
kept secrets.  Our Church is located at the top of a gently sloping hill in the middle of eight beautiful, largely wooded acres along High Point Road in Sandy Springs. At Highpoint, 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.

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.



Highpoint Episcopal Community Church News


George Neequaye

The Reverend Doctor George Neequaye of Acara, Ghana, has been a visiting professor at Emory University Candler School of Theology since January, working on the completion of two books. Highpoint has hosted him in spirit and in accommodations during that time.  His visit is in conjunction with the Episcopal diocese's focus on racial reconciliation.


On Sunday, August 19th, HECC will feature a conversation with Father George at 9:15 AM, regarding the gifts of the spirit he leaves with us and those which he takes back from America. This will be followed by a 10:30 service at the church, including moving music provided by members of the Capital City Opera, inspired by African heritage composers and instruments.


Any and all, regardless of faith heritage, are welcome to both events, preceded by a light continental breakfast at 8:30 AM.

 

 

In the gallery...

 Gallery 4945 will display the expressionist paintings of Ray Ratkowski from July 19 to August 31. Ratkowski's paintings are well known in the Cape Cod area and many portray whimsical scenes from that area.  Ratkowski began painting upon his retirement, after time spent playing professional football, serving in the marines and working for the FBI.  Ray Ratkowski died in 2012.  His works are being presented by his son John Ratkowski who lives in the Highpoint community.  Gallery 4945 is located at Highpoint Episcopal Community Church, 4945 Highpoint Road, Sandy Springs, Georgia.
