Highrock Arlington is part of a growing network of Highrock congregations worshiping and serving in eastern Massachusetts.
Join Highrockers from across our Network to pray in adoration and thanksgiving, and for our local and shared concerns.
I'm Edwin Menon, and I've been a Ministry Director at Highrock Arlington for many years. My wife Kelsey and I are planting a church in Malden as part of the Highrock Network.
The dream for Highrock Malden began over ten years ago, when I was inviting friends, neighbors, and colleagues with questions about God's role in their lives to come to church with me - about an hour's drive away! That's a long way to travel to connect with God and keep exploring faith. Instead of bringing people to a church that was so far away, I wondered if I could bring a healthy, transformational church to them! It was then that I felt called by God to plant a church that could help all kinds of people in the community find life in Christ.
As my wife and I sought God's direction for where to plant the church, Malden caught our eyes because of the city's diversity. We love that almost every country is represented in the friendly people of Malden, and that our neighbors here come from all walks of life. The area is accessible by both train and bus, so that anyone can come to church and be part of the community.
Our desire is to build a church that can provide a safe environment where all people can come in order to hear and experience the life-changing truths that Jesus is for them, that He died for them, and that He came to give them new life. A place where Real People can meet a Real God and do Real Life together.
The kind of church for people like our friend Tom, who is financially well off - and for our other friend John, who is a single father making ends meet in fixed income housing. A church for people like Kim, the single mom with four kids, who’s trying to find a job - and for Adele, a stay at home mom. It’s for Betsy, a divorced domestic violence survivor - and for Patty, a woman who has been happily married for over 20 years. A church for our friends David and Samuel who have been hurt by Christians but who want a reason to believe again - and for our friend Barbara, a recovering Catholic who constantly questions her faith and craves community. A church where no one will feel out of place. A church where people will find warmth, hospitality, and authentic relationships. Where people can find faith in God and a community that helps them walk in that faith.

We've been praying a lot. Something like this cannot happen without the hand of God. We have been spending time seeking His face, praying for our neighbors, and praying for God to continue to move in and through us as a team.
In order to make this vision a reality, we have been meeting every other Monday in Malden with others who are interested in getting this church off the ground. We meet for prayer, fellowship, planning, and training as a Launch Team.
We have been meeting with key members of the Malden community: the mayor, city officials, school teachers, other clergy, and our neighbors. We have been partnering with city officials to volunteer at events so that we can be a blessing to the people in our city.
Pray for us, pray for the Launch Team, pray for the people in the city, and pray that God will help us build relationships so that our neighbors can come to know Him in a much deeper way.
If you have an interest in reaching people in the city of Malden with the love of Jesus, then consider being part of our Launch Team. We would love to get to know you as you meet the rest of the team, and learn more about how God can use your life to change the lives of the people in the city.
In order to plant a church and reach a city, we will need funding. If you feel led to partner with us so that together we can help all kinds of people find new life in Christ, consider making a donation today. Please make checks out to “Highrock Network” with the memo line: “Highrock Malden” and mail to:
