Federal Way English Campus

Friends, we are doing it again. On April 30th, we are launching a new campus in Federal Way. Our current south/main campus is packed, has been for years, and we don't have room to grow. Plus, the south campus is still split with 50% of the languages spoken from the stage being Russian. While our Slavic/Russian campus will continue to meet at Overcomer until our facility remodel is complete in Federal Way, the new English campus will start meeting at our new facility April 30th! Please like this page on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cityhillfederalway to follow the news & updates for this new English campus in Federal Way.

Who are Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott? 
A husband-and-wife team who not only share the same name, but the same passion for helping others build healthy relationships. In 1991, the Parrotts founded the Center for Relationship Development on the campus of Seattle Pacific University – a groundbreaking program dedicated to teaching the basics of good relationships.

Married in 1984, the Parrotts bring real-life examples to their speaking platform. Their professional training – Leslie as a marriage and family therapist, and Les as a clinical psychologist – ensures a presentation that is grounded, insightful and cutting-edge. 

Each year Les and Leslie speak in over 40 cities. Their audiences include a wide array of venues, from churches to Fortune 500 company board rooms. The Governor of Oklahoma appointed the Parrotts as the first ever statewide Marriage Ambassadors. Authorities have called upon Les and Leslie to provide on-site support in the aftermath of worldwide disasters such as Ground Zero and Chernobyl. The Commander of the 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, invited them to assist his soldiers with re-entry into family life upon returning from Iraq. 

Part of Les and Leslie’s vision for building stronger, life-long marriages is to equip a band of more than a million marriage mentors who walk alongside less experienced couples. Research reveals that marriage mentoring is one of the best things we can do to cut the divorce rate and improve marriages – whether couples are engaged, newly married or married of decades.

The Parrotts have been featured in USA Today and the New York Times. Their television appearances include CNN, The View, The O’Reilly Factor, The Today Show and Oprah.

As #1 New York Times best-selling authors, their books have sold over two million copies in more than two dozen languages, and include best-selling and Gold-medallion winner Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts. Other popular titles include Real Relationships, L.O.V.E., The Parent You Want To Be, Trading Places, The Complete Guide To Marriage Mentoring and Love Talk.

44 Water Baptized at our South Campus!

Last weekend, our family has grown even more! We had a great honor to watch, as 44 people publicly declared their faith in Christ and were water baptized. 

Pastor Mike Khochai, giving advice to those being baptized underlined that "Your life goes back to how it used to be before, but you must remember that you are no longer who you used to be, you have dedicated yourself to the Lord." 

This day truely has become a very special moment for the church family. At the end of the baptism ceremony, many congradulations were spoken towards those that were baptized. And for those that simply came to share the moment were awaited with a festive feast and many activites for the youngest generation.

Pastor Dean Curry at South Campus

Last Sunday Dean Curry visited our campus from “Life Center Church”, Tacoma WA. 

 

"Based on the foundation of the 17th chapter of John, I can say, the Jesus prayed for our church." - spoke Pastor Dean at the service. 

The main theme on which the pastor consetrated on was the unity of the church. Dean talked about how the last prayer of Jesus on earth was not of anything but the unity of his disciples then and in the future. That is why today churches are called to unite in serving this world. 

 

 

 

Mens breakfast: the vulnerability of a man.

Saturday, 4th of June at our church we had a mens meeting that consisted with prayer, worship and a breakfast. The theme of the breakfast was "vulnerability of men" or in other words, the weaknesses of men. After a very large breakfast, in which was worth the wait because of the effort that our sisters put in, our brothers came together for prayer and worship lead by our guest Vasiliy Spatarel.

 

Sergey Lobodzinskiy, organizer of the breakfast, welcomed all the brothers. Main thought that he left with everyone, ended with this, that a man can't do anything more masculine then to have a desire to get closer, more and more to the character of Jesus Christ. 

 

Pastor Vasiliy Botsyan voiced out three serious questions:

1. What does a man do with a man. 

2. What does a man fear?

3. Weak spot of a man?


At the end the call was left at the alter in front of God, with great desire the men asked for Gods blessing in being truly strong- by being more Christ like, who took upon himself the responsibility of taking all the sins of this world. 

 


 

Along with different pastors, who gave their reply to the questions. Want to acknowledge, with the video bellow. Максима Максимова!

Christmas Service 12/20/2015

Sundays service 20 December, became unordinary for our church. That is because, it had to do with Christmas. And we all as a church celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ. 
Yuiy Litvinchyuk welcomed everyone to worship and praise with some of the classical hymns of christmas. He reminded us the words of prophet Isaiah who said "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,  Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6) some understood and believed right away in Jesus promised by God to others though it was closed- Pastor Yuriy spoke.
 
"Christmas its a unique holiday. And we must not forget that we not only are celebrating the birth of a child, Christ, but also the birth of a King, that died and then rose and will once more come with glory for his church."- Spoke pastor Leonid
 
Jesus once said to his disciples, that they be like children. He made children an example of simplicity, sincerity, and love. Kids in our church also in simplicity, sincerly, and in love praised Jesus and wished those that were gathered a very merry Christmas in their songs, and skits. 
 
Youth pastor Alex Kulibaba, said his welcoming to the church and read a passage from the book of Luke. Luke 2:7-12. Leader of the youth came across with a question "Do we understand what Christmas is?" The angel said to the shephards "Do not fear, I came to give you good news." Could it be that we still do this day are affraid of something in our lives. That is why I must tell you, there is nothing we must fear, Jesus was born to us- with excitement spoke Pastor Alex. 
 
Pastor Mike Khochai, wished everyone a Merry Christmas based on the parable of the leprocy, Matthew 8:3. Said that a person in the eyes of God has also leprocy, but God wants to make him clean that he may praise his Son Jesus Christ. 
 
In conclusion, pastor Vasiliy Botsyan, investigated the essence of Christmas. He read from Colossions 1:26-27. "Jesus Christ was born not only in Bethlehem's barn. This was a place where lambs were born and prepared for sacrifice in the temple. So from the begining one can say that Jesus was to be the lamb to be sacrficed." This and many other things, Pastor Vasilliy talked about.
