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.

Artist Statement
I expressed an interest in art early in life and began formally studying drawing and painting at age 13.  I got a degree in Fine Art at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where I developed my early style of painting, which was whimsical abstracted interior spaces.
After graduation, I moved to Atlanta where I continued to study painting and drawing. I took classes in Plein Air painting, which took my work into a more realistic direction.
I have shown in many galleries throughout the country and my interests and style have changed according to different opportunities and experiences.  A sense of whimsy has remained a significant element in my work - a subtle underlying lightheartedness that invites the viewer in to experience the subject rather than simply look at it. 
The most vital thing to me as I choose a subject is composition.  I look at or think of the lights and darks, shapes and patterns in what I’m about to paint. I block out the skeleton of the work onto which I build my painting. In adding brushstrokes, other media in addition to oil paint, and my personal style, I produce a fleshed out finished painting which is somewhat realistic but also artistically expressive.  I like to keep in mind “It is my painting so there are no wrong answers.”

Rideshare Program. 

MSG memberMarshall 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.

Through the efforts of Suellen Morse, we are pleased to announce that Silver Sneakers FLEX, a new wellness program that allows older adults to get active in classes held outside of the traditional fitness center, will be holding morning exercise classes at HECC in the parish hall.  The classes are organized and will be conducted by Melissa Lawrence Campbell; 770-354-7664; melissL77@hotmail.com.  Silver Sneakers will offer exercise classes at HECC starting June 1st:
