My name is Stephen Sharkey and I am one of the pastors here at Highrock Church in Quincy. At Highrock we have a growing tradition of employing music, story, and visual arts to serve our friends and neighbors. We believe the arts can bring people together, and can be leveraged to accomplish good in this world.
In 2013 we held our first annual Christmas Benefit Concert, raising close to $20,000 over the past 4 years to help aid Home with Friends. This December, we are overjoyed to present our fifth Christmas Benefit Concert so that we can share in the joyful news of this Christmas season. Through music we celebrate the story of Christmas together in a fresh and inspiring way. All proceeds from this year's concert will benefit Home with Friends, an organization that walks with families from homelessness into lives of independence.
Please join us for our fifth annual Christmas Benefit Concert. We hope that the proceeds raised, as well as the event itself, will be a true blessing to all our friends, neighbors, and guests.
Lead Pastor, Highrock Church
There are currently close to 4000 homeless families in the state of Massachusetts. On the South Shore alone, there are over 1500 families that do not have places to call home. Many of these families are single parent homes with pregnant mothers or young children. Needless to say, homelessness is a reality that is plaguing many of our neighbors.
This concert is a part of our response to that problem. This year's benefit concert will support Home with Friends, a nonprofit that walks with families on their journey from homelessness to independence. The needs of homeless families are complex, and often times our efforts to help can create even more challenges. But through this new program, we hope to help address these complex needs of our most vulnerable neighbors and help provide a way for them to find their ways home. Every ticket purchased goes toward addressing this important need in our community. There will also be opportunities to make additional cash and check donations at each performance.
Parking is available for visitors, families with children, and those with special needs in the lot behind the church (off Whitwell Street). You can park in any legal space along any of the streets (Granite Street is only available for parking on Sunday).
Additional parking is available at the following locations:
- Mountain One (77 Granite Street next to the church)
- Star Market (130 Granite Street)
The Quincy Center station on the Red Line of the MBTA is a 5-10 minute walk from the church.
