Who We Are

HLC is a welcoming, open and affirming community of disciples in love with God and neighbor, following into the footsteps of Christ.
We are about growing together closer to God until we can live completely in the divine energy just like Jesus Christ did when he walked this earth.
We are a healing congregation, reaching out in the community, inviting people, asking about the needs in the community and becoming the healing disciples of Christ.
We will celebrate 90 years of existence in March 2013! Come and see!

Liliana Stahlberg

I grew up in the Eastern Orthodox tradition, but felt a call to ordination early on, even as my church would not allow women to be priests. Got to know the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Romania and fell in love with the Lutheran theology that is all about God's abundant and unconditional grace, as expressed in the life of Jesus Christ. I came to the US to study theology and follow my dream for ordination! I was called and ordained at Highlands lutheran Church in 2009.
