Frequently Asked Questions


What time is service?

Our service starts at 10:00 a.m. We encourage guests to come a bit earlier to find parking. We also highly encourage guests to come earlier to meet and converse with members and staff at HCC.


How long is service?

Our service tends to run 75 - 90 minutes in length. 


I'm a college student without a car. Can I get a ride to church?

If you're a student at American University or UMCP, then yes! HCC currently offers a van ministry that picks up students from AU and CP campuses. For more info, please visit our college ministry page. Unfortunately, we currently do not offer rides to other campuses. 



What is Global Mission Church?

Global Mission Church (GMC) is a sister church of Higher Connection Church. We currently rent facilities from GMC and are thus located in the same building. 


Where do I park?

As stated above, HCC shares facilities with GMC. Thus, there is one shared parking lot. During peak traffic time, volunteers from the parking ministry will direct the traffic in the parking lot. 


Where do I take my kids?

HCC does not have its own children and youth ministry; however, GMC has an elementary, middle and high school ministry, which guests are welcomed to take their children to. Please let us know upon arrival if you need assistance in taking your children to their different worship halls.
