We believe God is always present and at work in our lives. That’s why the sharing of our stories has been such an important part of Highrock from the very beginning. Stories can encourage, challenge, and inspire. They remind us that God is in the business of changing lives! Here are a few stories about what God has done in the lives of some of our members and in the life of our church.
