Guy Mason November 2009

30 Oct 2009

On Sunday, October 25 we celebrated our second birthday!  

It was our biggest day yet with almost 300 people turning up to celebrate what has been an amazing two years.  

The church began with just a handful of people with a vision make difference in our city for the glory of God.  Since then God has gathered many men and women from all ages, stages and backgrounds with a passion to know more about Jesus and to make him know.  

As I did at our birthday, I would like to personally acknowledge our thanks and appreciation to the Docklands Community.  Since my wife and I moved into the area we have been welcomed with open arms.  We have loved partnering together in many community projects and being part of all that God is doing here.  

Our celebration was also an opportunity to look forward to all that God has in store for us and announce our much-anticipated new name.  

In Matthew chapter 5, Jesus says,

 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see
your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”   Jesus (Matt. 5v14-16)

When Jesus first spoke these words he envisaged the church as a community marked by love, influence, sacrifice, adventure, courage, generosity, and strength.  

As “City on a Hill”, we want to be a dynamic and vibrant community that stands tall in its generation and emanates a bold and powerful light for the good of all people, and the glory of God.

At “City on a Hill” we want you to embrace all that Jesus has for us.  We are not just a place to visit, but also a vision to live.

Guy Mason is the pastor of “City on a Hill”, which has two main services on Sundays at James Squire Brewhouse – 10.30am and 6pm. http://www.cityonahill.com.au

    Thank-you to the Church Minister Guy Mason for his excellent Sermons editorials and prayers.

    I and my Son attend Church Service at 10.30am on a Sunday

    We believe through his Sermons and Editorials it plays a key part in the life and growth of Docklands Church and the wider Community of Melbourne and beyond.
