The lead pastors and the executive board of the Highrock Network have an important update about the future of the network.
Highrock Brookline is meeting in-person for Sunday morning services at the Brookline Teen Center!
Please read through the plan details below, and then RSVP for Sunday worship services, consider signing up to help with many of the new ministry needs that make gatherings possible.
Weekly indoor worship services on Sundays at 10:30 AM
40 Aspinwall Avenue, Brookline, MA 02446 (Brookline Teen Center)
Most of our in-person services during the summer will be hybrid. They will feature all of the regular elements of a Highrock service, in a mixture of live and recorded components. Congregants will be invited to sing along with live worship music. We will also be providing space for meaningful ways to connect during and after the service. There will be an emphasis on hospitality, building community, and being a “learning lab” for re-launching as a church.
Families are welcome and will be worshipping together! Our Kidsrock ministry for kids ages 5-12 is available. Please register your children for Kidsrock HERE. There will be caregiver access to a nursery/cry room as well as kids’ activity packets to keep our young ones engaged through the service should they wish to stay with you.
As part of BTC’s protocol, we will ask that everyone over the age of 2 continue to wear masks within the building for in-person services. We do not ask for proof of vaccination in order for guests and newcomers to participate in-person. However, we continue to believe that vaccinations and boosters are safe, effective, and important for the common good. In a spirit NOT of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7), we will continue to ask our members and regular attenders (who are eligible and medically able to do so) to get vaccinated and receive their booster shot. For more information about our COVID safety plan, please see our FAQ.
As we emerge from a year of primarily engaging worship at home through a screen, this is a time for us to remember that church is not a product we consume. The point of a worship service is not to serve us, and our comfort and convenience. Rather, the point of the worship service is to serve God with gifts of our worship, our attention, our prayers, and praise. The worship gathering of God's people is enabled as we serve God by offering our gifts in ministry. Let's move into this new season with a renewed spirit of serving our good and gracious God!
