Our 10th Birthday Bash Was Just Beautiful!          

 

On Sunday, September 8th, 2019 we celebrated a decade of ministry through City Church, and what a celebration it was! We saw over 450 faces walk through our doors, not counting our adorable new reptile friends, who were graciously provided by THE REPTILE ZOO!

Though we didn’t sway far from our regular scheduled service, we did add in some memorable moments. If you haven’t heard, we introduced a new City Church original song, called “Beautiful.” We believe that THE BEST IS YET TO COME! View it HERE.

We also shared a touching tribute video reminding us of the continuing story of Christ’s mighty work in this community and especially in the city of Anaheim. See it HERE.

Thank you to Dr. Willie and Joy Nolte for honoring Pastor Kyle and Lisa for their 10 years of committed ministry and awarding City Church for being one of Transformation Ministries’ Top 10 churches that support church planting around the world. Way to go everyone!

 

 

 

 

Joined by our City Kids ministry, directed by Ms. Arial Adams, we concluded the service by singing “Happy Birthday,” and in true City Church manner, CONFETTI CANNONS! It was truly a momentous moment.

 

 

 

 

We were very pleased with all of the volunteers that made each detail of this celebration come to life. We especially would like to highlight some folks that went above and beyond our regular volunteering to make it EXTRA special.

Here are some of the folks we couldn’t have done this without.

 

Our City Church young people spent the majority of their Saturday baking and decorating cupcakes and cookies. Thank you to Kaitlyn Prickett, Mikaylee Whitmarsh, Daniella Sicat, Elijah Wall, Eddie and Emmit Lancaster for working so tirelessly in providing us with the sweet goodies.

Thanks to the ever so talented, Carrera Bauer for providing such a beautiful showstopper cake that tasted even better than it looked. Is that even possible?

Thank you to Charlene Sanchez of Bare Rooted Designs with the lovely floral arrangements!
