"He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me." (Colossians 1:28-29)

Alpha is a course designed to introduce people to the Christian faith.

Highrock 101 (New Partners Class) - Saturday, Jan 29, 10:00-11:30 AM
One of the deepest ways to get connected at Highrock is by becoming a Partner. Partnership (Membership) is a formal commitment to Highrock's vision and mission. One analogy might be that while we have many guests, partners are those who are the hosts of their church home. This is an opportunity to get to know our church's story, culture, governance, and the broader story of the Evangelical Covenant Church (our denomination) and decide if you’d like to become a member. Pre-work will be sent with registration.
Virtual Courses through the Highrock Network (Please register by 1/16)

Parent Cohort - Thursdays, May 5-June 9, 8:00-9:30 PM (Registration opening soon)
50% of high school students actively involved in their churches walk away from their faith after graduation. That's a coin toss. But did you know there is one thing that makes a drastic difference in this statistic? It's not church attendance, Sunday school or youth group participation, or the influence of church staff. It's PARENTS - parents who talk about and practice their faith in the home. This cohort is designed to help you own your influence, and discover practical tools to assist you in the journey. It’s a space for you to take your first - or next - steps in helping your kids to walk the way of Jesus for the rest of their lives. Curriculum created by Sarah Cowan Johnson; Discussion hosted by Pastor Ali Barrett.
*All courses are free and open to the public; childcare available
