The lead pastors and the executive board of the Highrock Network have an important update about the future of the network.
During the pandemic, many of our ideas of “church” got shifted and shaken. It was hard to say that we “went” to church or that we “attended” church as we sat in our pajamas in our living room! But now that we’ve gone back to 'in-person' worship services, perhaps we’ve fallen back into our old patterns of thinking about “church” — ie. people in one place, pastors, preaching, programming, production, etc…
But what if the church was meant to BE MORE than that?
In this series, we’ll explore together the Book of Acts in the New Testament, looking at what happened when people – ordinary people, different people, diverse people, outsiders AND insiders – got swept up into the story of God by a movement of the Holy Spirit. The movement became a revolution. These early Christians didn’t attend church, they were the Church; an active, energized body of believers equipped to change the world as they shared in life together. Join us as we learn from the early church, as we ourselves are swept up into God’s story of life together

We will be continuing our sermon series journeying through the book of Acts in the New Testament, and looking at what happened when people – ordinary people, different people, diverse people, outsiders AND insiders – got swept up into the story of God by a movement of the Holy Spirit.
These early Christians didn’t *attend* church, they *WERE* the Church. Join us as we learn from the early church, as we ourselves are swept up into God’s story of life together.
This week, we heard and discussed a 2018 sermon from former Highrocker and author Sarah Shin ("Beyond Colorblind") on Acts 6:1-7 and asking: "What does it look like to not just *look* ethnically diverse, but to love each other intentionally across colors, races and ethnicities in a way that reflects Jesus’ kingdom?"
