His Story Our Story – Celebrating another year of God's grace
It is an exciting time to be a part of God's movement. Jesus is transforming lives and His love is shining bright!
At 10am on Sunday the 27th of October, coinciding with the birth of City on a Hill six years ago, we will gather as one church for one special service at the Melbourne Town Hall.
"His Story Our Story - celebrating another year of God's grace"
Together we will proclaim the Gospel, hear stories of lives changed by Jesus, dedicate our little ones, celebrate new life in baptism, pray, sing and give thanks for the many ways God has been at work through this church.
Significantly, this event will also mark the very first year of our City Steps vision, and so in addition to looking at the progress made, we'll be making some exciting announcements about the future of City on a Hill. This will include the commissioning of our first church plant in Geelong, the sending of our first independent plant, and a very special announcement regarding the next City on a Hill plant to launch early 2014.
God is on the move and we'd love you to be part of it!
To make this happen - we need your help!
1. Share Your Story
Head to cityonahill.com.au/hisstoryourstory to find all the details for the event, watch the promo video and share your story. We'd love to know how your story has been shaped by God's story.
2. Invite your friends and family
'His Story Our Story' is going to be an amazing moment and we want as many people as possible to share in the celebration. Take the opportunity to invite friends, work colleagues, family and neighbours. We've printed invites, created a Facebook event page and a promo video to help you spread the word. All are welcome!
3. Get baptised
We will be celebrating Jesus and the new life He gives us through baptism. Baptism is the outward sign of his inward grace. In the waters of baptism we are united in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. If you have not yet been baptised and would like to find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to celebrating new births through baptism, we will also be giving thanks for the many new babies God has gifted our families with. We love our little ones and are inviting families to dedicate their children before the Lord and with our church. If you'd like to find out how you can dedicate your child, email email@example.com.
Join us in praying that God uses this day in mighty and majestic ways. May people see, hear, and encounter the eternal love, hope and joy of Jesus. May our hearts be enlarged as His name and story are lifted up in this great city.
