Today we want to share an important change regarding the future of the Highrock Network and our shared life together. Nothing is changing immediately, but we want to share the direction we are discerning for the future.
Last year we had over 80 men from across the Highrock Network attend the RESET men's retreat. Every single person who provided feedback said they would attend again and would invite a friend. Instead of shallow, adrenaline-filled activities, it was a space for deep connection with others, new relationships, soul-nourishing talks and worship, and long naps. This year we are meeting later in the spring so we'll have more opportunity for some outdoor fun!
So come out to scenic Pilgrim Pines in New Hampshire on April 17 to 19th for a weekend of feasting, rest and reflection, fun and worship, games and overall good times. Doug Bixby, senior pastor of the Covenant Church of Attleboro, will be speaking on the need for our hearts to RESET: how to develop hope and faith-filled hearts as men in the face of the disappointments and challenges of life.
There are four registration options:
Registration deadline is April 6th.
Scholarships are available! Please send a brief email to Will (email@example.com) and Chris (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to registering if you need a scholarship. If cost is an issue at all, please, please reach out to us! We are committed to making it possible for everyone who is interested to attend!
