When we officially launched The Hill 4 months ago, I could never fully imagine all God would do in such a short amount of time. The road to the launch of The Hill was one marked with pain, joy, doubt, assurance, loss and gain.
When we “planned” what our infant church would be, God worked details our small dreams never saw coming…a merger, a building, dear people. He also opened doors, we never knocked on and asked us to walk through them. It’s through the process of starting The Hill that I saw my husband adapt his vision to meet God entirely with where His vision was to take us.
These last four months have been a time of healing and restoration. I have come to love the families God has given us. They've been so good to us, beyond what we deserve.
Today we shared some incredible news about the next steps we feel confident that God is asking our church to take. Once again, God opened a door we didn’t know to knock on, and the result is a partnership merger with a local church. The Hill Memphis and Grace Crossing Church will together become Grace Hill Church. We believe we can accomplish infinitely more together than we can apart.
Because that’s what it should be about for any body of believers - reaching the lost, reaching the unfound. Local churches in your area are not the enemy or the competition. I am so thankful God has put in our paths churches who believe the capital “C” church is way more important than the little “c” church.
June 26 we will celebrate together in our first service. We will honor the God “who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”
He has been so good to us. May His hand and His blessing be with us in this next step.
