Resources on Break!

Summers are a time when many groups take a break as schedules get busy with summer travel. With this in mind starting this Sunday, June 7th through August, the Sermon Questions team will be on a break as well. If you have any questions about resources to use over the summer for your small group, please email Abby,  .

If your group will be meeting over the summer and is open to hosting new members who are looking to connect to a small group, we'd love to help! Please email Abby.

Welcome Ministry

Looking to get involved at Highrock?

The Welcome Ministry is always looking for great people to help create a warm hospitable environment here for anyone who comes to our church.  Whether it's handing out bulletins, greeting people at the door, or even connecting them to other ministries within the church so they can grow deeper in their faith, find community, and serve...we do all that.  Now we're expanding!  We're especially looking for new team members to help in the kitchen during services as we prepare snacks, coffee and other refreshments that will help facilitate connections between people after service has ended.  It adds to our hospitality and a great way to serve and meet people who come to our church.  If you have an interest in serving please complete the form below and we'll be in touch.

The world gravitates toward the big and the beautiful but God often chooses those whom the world passes over. God chose a boy- a young shepherd - and placed him on the throne. What did God see that the world did not? What might God look for in us that, like David, we might be called people after God's own heart?
