The last couple of months God has been preparing Celebration Church globally for a situation we are facing now with Covid-19 that causes us to not be able to meet in large gatherings.
Our “The Table” series with the focus on bringing God’s presence back into our homes through sabbath and communion has been such a prophetic move for us to be able to have church in our homes.
Here is what you need to do to let this crisis strengthen you and your family:
1) plan to meet at your home with your family;
2) download the “The Table” guide (linktr.ee/celebrationchurch_nl);
3) buy grape juice and matzos (or other bread);
4) be ready at 10:30 on Sunday to watch our message video (celebrationchurch.nl/live
or Facebook live 09:30 NL 11:30 ENG or YouTube);
5) have communion together to demonstrate loyalty to King Jesus (The Table guide is there to help you make this a meaningful time);
6) pray together for everybody in the group and for healing and peace in our nation;
7) be careful and follow government advice. If you feel sick, please stay at home to avoid the virus to spread.
The enemy is doing everything he can to pull people apart, to weaken them, and to instill fear and self-centeredness. What he didn’t know is that the current crisis will only strengthen us and unite us as the people of God, as the ekklesia of Jesus! Our light will shine even brighter in the world around us!
Believing this will be our best season ever as the ekklesia of Jesus. We put what we have learned into practice! We’re looking forward to seeing you soon, hopefully in one of our buildings in Hilversum or Huizen!

Within Celebration Church the leadership of Thousand Hills found similar passion for Jesus, his Word, his family and his mission to reach the world with the Gospel of the Kingdom.
