As we shared in March (see announcement here), in recognition of the uniqueness and diversity of our local churches, our Highrock network decided to stop formally sharing a brand and association, which means that we’ve been in the process of discerning a NEW NAME and LOGO for our church. Our vision, mission, and values will stay the same, but with a new name! 

Over the past six weeks we’ve collected name suggestions from the church partners, and our staff and leadership team have researched, played with, talked about, and prayerfully considered each suggestion in search of a church name that reflects where we come from, who we are, and what we’re about. 

We are DELIGHTED to report that out of this process has come a NEW NAME for our church, a name that several of our partners suggested, and that so far has received unanimous support and excitement, a “wow, yes, that just makes sense.” And we CANNOT WAIT to share and celebrate this name with you!

To that end, Sunday, May 22 is our official “Naming Sunday,” and we’d love for you to join us! Come hear about our new church name, celebrate it with cake after worship, and if you’d like, pick-up up some new swag sporting the the new name! We’ll have t-shirts ($5) and hoodies ($15) available, which you can pre-order at these subsidized rates HERE. Pre-orders need to be in by Tuesday, May 3.

In the end, a name is just a name. What matters is WHO WE ARE, and who God has called us to be as God’s people! What matters is our mission: Creating Communities that encourage questions and inspire each other to love like Jesus

So while we look forward to celebrating this moment in the life of our church, the new name which we’ll share, we also remember that the truest and most important name we share is the NAME OF JESUS. Let’s be in prayer together that our new church name would simply be another vehicle through which we serve and follow that name together!
