The lead pastors and the executive board of the Highrock Network have an important update about the future of the network.
It was such a joy to celebrate together this past Sunday and introduce our new name and logo as a church! Thank you all for making our summer launch special.
Our new name and logo connect us to our mission and vision. We WALK with God and one another in relationship, towards Jesus’ mission of RECONCILING all things, including our everyday spaces of life.
In Mark 3:13-19, Jesus calls his disciples to him “that they might be with him and that he might send them out”... That they might be with him AND that he might send them out. Twin calls, “yes and” calls, ampersand calls of discipleship - two invitations from Jesus to his disciples then and now that go hand in hand.
When we hear our name, Riverwalk Church, the hope is that we would be reminded that we are a community learning to live and love like Jesus in the everyday spaces of life. We are being formed into people of reconciliation who — like a river — seek flourishing and fullness of life wherever we are. And we are not called to Jesus’ mission alone but in relationship with one another as we seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.
If you were to ask the different members of our Rebranding Team what they like the most about our new logo, you might get a variety of answers, but the three things I love most about our new logo are:
It’s kind of like what happens when you get married and if you choose to change your name. After the wedding, you start going by your new name, but it can take some time to update all your paperwork and let everyone in your life know. That will be will be true for us, too - we have lots of paperwork, signage, and relationships to update; build a website; get new email addresses, etc. So for a while, you may still see “Highrock Brookline” on things, and there may be some glitches along the way.
Thanks for your patience and your help (we need it!) as we update everything bit by bit! We look forward to our more official-official launch in the Fall on SEPTEMBER 24. Please mark your calendars!
In the meantime...let’s keep celebrating all God has done and is doing in this season.
With Joy and Celebration for what God has Done,
