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 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 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.

What gives artist Karen Mosbacher Clewell great pleasure and satisfaction is painting music. As a child, Karen would lie under her father's piano as he practiced for musical performances. As his fingers ran up and down the keyboard, Karen sketched and discovered her unusual phenomenon of synesthesia (or the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body.) Each new line, shape, color, and drawing took on the dance of the music. Karen attended the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts at the University of Oklahoma. Color and texture filled her artwork. Musical characters sounded brightly in her mind as she embedded the medium on her canvases. Karen later earned a Master of Divinity at Phillips Theological Seminary where she studied the affect of spirituality of art and music. Now, residing in Atlanta and working in her studios, Karen paints and creates her wonderful art to the compositions of the classical masters, as well as her favorite living musicians and composers. "Each musical piece tells a story, albeit some are brief, and I portray that story through paint and canvas." Karen's work can be found at I.D.E.A Gallery, Farrell's Gallery, and the Urban Art Collective.

Check back - gallery hours will be posted soon!



They’re Back.

The John Mohr MacKintosh Pipes and Drums, a performance pipe and drum band that performs all over the Southeastern United States, will return to HECC to perform on Palm Sunday, March 25th, thanks to the booking efforts of band drummer and MSG member Lisa Van Tassel, The stirring performance of this exceptional band moves one’s soul and often brings tears to one’s eyes.  Mark your calendar and plan to attend this inspiring performance that you will not want to miss.


Garden Blessing Returns. 

The second annual garden blessing will be given in the Gleaner’s Garden again this year by The Rev. Ruth Pattison on Monday, March 26th, starting at 6:30.  This year’s garden blessing more or less coincides with the first official day of Spring, which is about a week earlier. After the ceremony, all gardeners are invited to attend the evening’s MSG dinner, hosted by chefs Robin and Duffy, same as last year.  This year’s garden blessing is being coordinated by Robin Hickey, who also is in charge of the Gleaner’s Garden.  Robin reports that all garden plots for the 2018 growing season have been allotted with demand exceeding supply. 

Easter Breakfast. 

HECC will host its annual Easter Breakfast in the Parish Hall at 9:00 a.m. on Easter morning.   A sign-up sheet will be posted on the community bulletin board on Palm Sunday.  Please sign-up to bring and share your favorite food dish for all members to enjoy


Rideshare Program. 

MSG member Marshall Kress has teamed-up with longtime HECC member Lynn Crovatt to offer rides (to Church and errands) to HECC members who no longer drive.  Marshall and Lynn, who are coordinating this program, are looking for volunteers to sign-up to provide occasional rides for our nondriving members.  This is a very worthy service, which deserves our support.  Please contact Marshall (marshallkress@bellsouth.net; 404-252-5962) if you can spare a few hours per month and assist on a rotating basis in this very commendable rideshare program.
