Welcome to City On A Hill Church!
We are a young, growing church that loves Jesus and loves our community deeply! Every Sunday we have many first-time guests, and we would love for you to join us as well! If you are planning to visit, here are some things to expect:
What time do services start?
We start exactly at 9:30 am on Sunday! There are families that start showing up 20-30 minutes early, those that come exactly at 9:30 am, and even those who come in a couple minutes late. Whenever you arrive, we will be excited to have you.
What happens in a service?
The service lasts about an hour and twenty minutes. Someone will typically open the service with prayer, and a worship team & band will lead us through 3 songs of worship. The songs are typically contemporary, and the words are displayed on the screen for everyone to sing along. After the songs, a host will make a couple short announcements, before a teaching pastor gets up to share a sermon. The sermon lasts about 30 minutes and uses the Bible to teach its points. At the end, the service concludes in a time of prayer.
What do I wear?
You may wear whatever you want. There may be some people who wear suits and ties, some who enjoy more business casual (slacks and a button shirt), and still others who prefer jeans and t-shirt. It’s important to remember that God looks at the soul, not at the suit.
Is there something special for my children?
We offer Kid’s Church for children age three through 5th grade, as well as Nursery (infants, crawlers, walkers—newborn through age 2) during each of our worship services. Our state-of-the-art electronic kid’s check-in system, parent paging system, and secure kids area will allow you to have peace of mind during our services. And, our Jesus-centered children’s programming is so fun and engaging, your kids will beg to come back! If you are visiting for the first time, just come up to the “Kid’s Check-In” table and our friendly staff will help you get your children settled in. Do know, we take the safety of all our children very seriously. All children’s ministry staff have gone through a background check and safety training. We have gone to great lengths to promote the spiritual growth and physical safety of our children!
How do I get to your church?
Our address is 7915 NE 192nd Street, Kenmore WA 98023. We are located in the Kenmore/Bothell area, at the intersection of 80th and 192nd St.
What size church is it?

Will I be asked to give money?
We do take an offering each Sunday after the time of singing & worship. Our offerings help us to keep the lights on enable us to reach our community. But, more than half of our people give online or by phone; if you are a guest or visitor, don’t feel obligated to give.

What other info would be helpful?
At our facility in Kenmore, we also have an outreach to the Slavic community (City Hill Slavic Northshore), and they gather to worship at 11:45 AM. If you know anyone who is of a Slavic background, invite them! In addition, we have blessed with a strong Hispanic community in the Northshore region.
If you have any questions, feel free to come up to our Connect/Info Center. We offer a gift to all of our first-time guests, and the gift is always located on the counter of the Connect Center. If you are willing, we would love to get your name and email address at the Connect Center, and once a week, we send out an email with details of upcoming events, sermon series, and updates.
