Easter at Highpoint Church

By Jessie Jolliff

April 21, 2017

Easter Sunday is one of the biggest days on the calendar for followers of God as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and the salvation we have because of Him. This year was extra special for Pastor Ron Zappia and his team as the holiday marked the official launch of the churches’ new name, Highpoint Church. The new name will serve as an umbrella for the three church campuses in Naperville, North Aurora, and Bolingbrook, Illinois. This is an exciting step for the ministry, as it will unify Pastor Ron’s radio broadcast, Highpoint, with the multi-site church, allowing local listeners to easily identify the church and make it home, if they haven’t found a church community already.

By Jessie Jolliff

Dec. 5, 2016
