Bishop Pavel Okara ministering at City On A Hill

 

On June 17th, the day dedicated to celebrating Father’s Day in the United States, City On A Hill Church was honored to welcome Bishop Pavel Okara and his wife Nadezhda. Pishop Okara served as the head Bishop of the Union of Evangelical Church in Russia for many years. Currently, he lives in Moscow and is the Senior Pastor of the church “Word of Salvation.”


During this Sunday service, the church also prayed for and blessed a team of ministers and teenagers leaving to Mexico on a mission trip. A total of 60 people went on the mission trip, over half whom were from City On A Hill Church. 

Guests from Portland, Voice of Hope Church

 

Last Sunday, we had the honor to host guests from "Voice of Hope Church" and Pastor Ivan Trachuk from Portland OR. Their visit to Seattle was with a choir of over 50 voices, and 2 singing groups. Their singing and presence were a blessing to City On A Hill Church. It was interesting to note, that their choir consisted of people from all ages, and sounded very professional, anointed. 

 

After the choir and group performances, Pastor Ivan Trachuk, who is a great friend of City On A Hill, shared the main message. In his sermon, he spoke about the importance of the local church, and each Christian's relationship to it. He urged City On A Hill attendees, "The more you love, the less you will regret later." Pastor Ivan has been to City On A Hill Church previously, and was one of the several pastors present at the Grand Opening of City On A Hill Church.

YP Trip to Seaside, Or

This past Memorial Day weekend (May 26-28) Young Professionals packed their bags and headed for the beach, Seaside, OR to be exact. Approximately 38 young people from City on a Hill Church as well as neighboring churches were able to get away for a weekend of relaxation and fellowship. We are grateful to the members of the leadership team who put in the work so that the rest of us could spend a carefree few days on the beaches of the Pacific Ocean. 

 

The three days were filled with hiking, volleyball, hanging out on the beach, and exploring the city. There was also time devoted for worship and meditation on the word of God. On Sunday morning, we spent about an hour in worship as well as listening to a word that YP leader Oleg Manchik shared. Also, each evening gathered around the glowing embers of a bonfire, we sang, prayed and tried to answer each others questions. For those that preferred to stay inside during the chilly evenings, they will likewise remember sitting around the big dining room table enjoying hot tea and each others company. 


We hope that these few days together, will leave a lasting memory, serve to bring us closer together, and most importantly that it would have impacted some peoples lives for the better.
