Highrock Happenings: February 23rd

Feb 21, 2020

This Sunday we conclude our sermon series Devoted with a special guest, Rev. Steve Cushing. Steve is the Director of the New England Seafarers Mission and he has been a part of Highrock for years. He'll be preaching on Evangelism.

Normal Soulfood this Sunday

If you were with us last week, you may have heard us mention we'd be joining Dane Street in Beverly after church for a Meet & Greet/Celebration. We've rescheduled that, so please mark your calendars for March 8th instead. Join us after service this week for our normal Soulfood time. Plan on staying after service on March 8th for a time to celebrate the Dane Street adoption and our first official Sunday together as one body!

This Week - Ash Wednesday

This Wednesday marks the start of Lent, and we hope you'll be able to join us for one of our two services--one at Sunrise (6:30am) at First Baptist Church, and the evening service at 7pm at Dane Street Church. We hope you'll join us as we begin the season of Lent. If you'd like childcare for the evening service, please register your child(ren).

Every year, Ash Wednesday calls us back to the paths from which we have strayed, refocuses our attention on both the way and the goal of our journey through life. It is a continuing reminder across the centuries that life is transient, that change is immanent, and therefore also urgent. 

Ash Wednesday invites us to get back in touch with the nexus between the eternal God and our finite condition. Ash Wednesday is therefore, at its core, an invitation to hear and respond to the Gospel one more time.  

Partnership Class

In a couple weeks, on Saturday March 14th from 9am-12pm in Beverly, we'll be offering a Partnership Class. 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). Learn more »
