HIGHROCK SMALL GROUPS

Highrock small groups typically go on break over the summer and start up again in the Fall. There will be summer events happening periodically for you to get to know others in the Highrock community. You can get connected and when the Fall comes, it will make it easier for you to join a small group with some folks you already know.

The weekend is jam packed with fun activities, great food, worship, and lots of one on one time. Highrock Pastors, Chris Gredenius and Will Barnett will be leading the retreat.  Register for the retreat at pilgrimpines.org/father-child.

WOMEN’S MINISTRY (SUMMER MEET-UP)

Saturday July 8th, 10:30am- 12pm; Harvard Art Museum, Cambridge, MA

Meet up with some Highrock women for a time of Visio Divina (praying through art).  We will gather together at the meeting time and then be given guidance and suggestions for how to use the time.  A printed resource will direct you to specific works and offer reflection questions as you observe different art pieces.  You do not need to be an expert in art in order to engage with this practice!  The focus is not on critiquing the art, but rather reflecting through the art with a posture attentive to God’s presence and His invitations to us.
