A Message from Our Pastor

Welcome to the Beulah and Monterey Presbyterian Churches!

These are two rural churches with two very different personalities. Worship at both churches is fairly informal, but still follows a general Presbyterian Format. The music is a combination of old and new, though Contemporary Christian music has not really made its way into the worship services. You will hear some of the grand old hymns played on piano and organ, or you may hear folk or country Gospel played on guitar! Children are welcome in both churches. There are still folks who wear coats and ties or dresses, but many folks come in less formal attire.  

Visitors will find both congregations warm and welcoming.

Just coming out of the COVID quarantining, we are, like many churches, trying to find our social footing again. Over the next few months, I expect we will resume the dinners, picnics, and ice cream socials that folks enjoyed so much two years ago. There are a growing number of families with children of various ages moving into the area, so our children and youth activities will also be expanding.  

In both congregations, there are folks who have spent most of their lives in one of the two churches.  They have a deep sense of history and a strong sense of family in these churches. There are also a number of folks who are more recent additions to the community. They bring with them fresh ideas, connections to other churches, and new energy.  

This is a small, rural community, so folks get to know one another quickly. In that knowing, there is also  a vital sense of caring for each other. The community pulls together quickly to help an individual or a family in time of crisis.

If you are here for just a short visit, a summer vacation, or are making Highland County your new home, you will find two communities of Presbyterians that will welcome you and help you find your way around.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Peace,

Rick Hill, pastor
