One of the deepest ways to get connected at Highrock is by becoming a member. Membership is a formal commitment to Highrock's vision and mission. Because it's about sharing in a mission, we often refer to our members as "partners." We are partners on a team together! Becoming a partner is saying, "This is my church and I'm committed to it." While we have many guests to our church, the partners are those who are the hosts of their church home. Partners are also those who are eligible to serve communion, vote on church-wide matters, and hold certain leadership positions.
Become a Member
Membership is open to baptized believers who have attended a Partners Class where you learn about Highrock's vision and its relationship to Boston and our denomination. Partners Classes are offered several times a year. To learn more about the next Partners Class, contact Pastor Will at email@example.com.
Partners are the body of Christ at Highrock. Like a physical body, our hope is that the church body is healthy, holy, and active. As you connect with God personally, we encourage you to share your spiritual journey with others through Community Groups, Ministries, and Small Groups. In addition, we ask Partners to take time out of your busy lives at least once a year to consider your spiritual health and chat with a spiritual leader or Spiritual Guide about how you are doing. These low-pressure, confidential meetings take about an hour, and must be completed once a year to remain an active member.
Once you have completed your renewal meeting, be sure to let us know by completing the Renewal Confirmation form.
Step 1: Set Up A Meeting
There are several avenues for completing your annual membership renewal meeting. You may reach out directly to a member of the pastoral staff to set up a meeting for your renewal conversation. You may also sign up here to meet with the Highrock Spiritual Guides.
Step 2: Prepare for Your Meeting
To prepare for your meeting, you will fill out a brief questionnaire that helps you consider several aspects of your spiritual health.
When you make an appointment with the Guides, this renewal questionnaire will be automatically sent to you and your Guides. Please complete your Renewal Questionnaire at least 3 days prior to your meeting so that it can be reviewed ahead of time.
Step 3: Let Us Know You've Completed Your Renewal
After you've completed your renewal meeting, please let us know by complete the annual Partners agreement letting us know you've committed for another year, which also allows us to keep our member records updated.
