Preparing one of Boise's oldest churches for the
NEXT 110 years of sharing the Good News of Jesus.
As of October 18, 2020, Hill City Church & Capitol City Christian Church are merging together!
Over the last three months, our two leadership teams really set out to discern whether this would be the best decision for God’s Kingdom. We’ve prayed, fasted, discussed, shared with our churches, and solicited feedback. Another step we’ve taken is to read the book Better Together. It has been an incredibly helpful resource for discerning and outlining a merger process. The authors talk about how the most successful mergers are mission-driven. This means we aren’t just weighing the practical matters like attendance and budget, but the kingdom metrics of discipleship and evangelism. This is a mission-driven merger.
You might be wondering what this next season of transition is going to look like? The transition is going to take some time and we need your help. The plan at this point is for both congregations to continue meeting in their buildings through the end of the year. We will do a joint Christmas Eve service in the Capitol City building. Then in the new year, Capitol City will start meeting with Hill City at the building on Bogus Basin Rd. Our landlord has graciously agreed to allow us to go month to month in our current space. This will allow us to do some of the renovations to the Capitol City building. Once we have a more solidified construction timeline we will schedule a move-in date and have our first services at the Capitol City building all together, both congregations together as one. We are incredibly grateful to be moving into a beautiful, historic building that is fully paid off! We are humbled by this monumental gift that will allow us to dedicate substantially more of our annual budget to growing the Kingdom of God.
As you can imagine we’ll need help with moving things, building projects, and all that goes into this process. So if you would like to help let us know by clicking the Volunteer button below. You can also donate specifically towards renovations by clicking the Give button and selecting the “Building Renovation” designation from the drop-down menu.
One way everyone can help is through prayer. Be praying for God to continue to lead us from this point forward. Check out some specific prayer needs in the How to Pray section.
