WEDNESDAY EXCHANGE HIGHLIGHTS: 'OUTSIDERS'

New York City, Hillsong

At Exchange this week, Pastor Josh Kimes spoke a message titled, "Outsiders," and without Jesus, we're all outsiders. He read from 1 Samuel 22:1-2.

He gave us 3 things to help us on this journey we call life:

1. It's a journey of belonging. You don't belong on the outside anymore—remember that God is always with you. (Joshua 1:9)

2. It's a journey about believing. What do you believe about yourself? Believe what God says about you—belonging leads to believing. (Psalm 139:14)

3. It's a journey called becoming. What you believe will determine what you become. (Psalm 92:13)

David's 400 men went from misfits to mighty because they stayed close to the King.

Don't forget, tonight we have Team Night at 7:30 pm at 155 E 22nd St. This is an opportunity to learn more about the creative team and how you can use your gifts to help build the church. Whether it's taking photos, making things, singing, playing an instrument, making singers and musicians sound and look better through audio engineering, lighting, TV etc - filming, producing and editing videos...the list goes on - Email NYCcreative@hillsong.com for more information.

 Our Sunday services tomorrow are at 10, 12, 2, 5, 7 and 9 p.m....

The Hillsong theory of geothermal physics states that 'the temperature on the streets is in direct inverted proportion to the atmosphere and climate inside Irving Plaza'. Trust us, if you think about it enough, it kinda works. Regardless of our grasp on the laws of physics, one thing we know for sure is that it is going to be a great day in church tomorrow.

See you at Irving!

Wednesday Exchange Highlights: 'Traits of the Older Brother'

At Wednesday's Exchange, we were blessed to have Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. preach a message titled, "Traits of the Older Brother," reading from the parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-31.

In case you missed it, here's a quick outline of three key traits that the older brother has: 1. He's got a party pooper attitude. You could be present, but not engaged. You can be in worship, but never worship. 2. Entitlement - "Nothing kills a church more than the spirit of entitlement. If you're too big to serve. You're too small to lead." 3. Judmental heart: How do you know what the younger brother has been doing? The judgmental heart sees the worst in people. 

But the father wants the older brother to come back into the party, Pastor Rich said. We have to celebrate. He was dead but now alive. He was lost but now is found!

We're looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, where we'll be meeting at Irving Plaza (17 Irving pl) at 10, 12, 2, 5, 7 and 9 p.m. See you at church!

We're coming off a big Sunday where Pastor Carl preached part two of his "This is my confession" series. "The words that come out of your mouth shapes your life." So what is YOUR confession? About your marriage? About your job? About your singleness? Let your confessions be that (1) you'll come out of your shell because you've got a story to tell, and (2) that you'll declare that it is well with your soul because the gates of hell will not prevail.

We're gearing up for a big week, and if part of your confession is to get more plugged in at Hillsong, here is how you can do it this week:

Exchange: 'A Crossroad Called Communion'

At Wednesday's Exchange, we heard a powerful message from Pastor Carl titled, "A Crossroad Called Communion." But that wasn't before Carl had the multi-talented Kevin Singleton break out into spontaneous song playing the keys and singing, "help them Lord, help them Lord." 

The text for Pastor Carl's message is found in John 6:55-59: "For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever." These things He said in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum." 

"Communion is a decision reminder. Have you embraced the 'good idea' or the 'God identity'?" Pastor Carl said, while explaining that there are a lot of good ideas but in practices are really hard. People like the idea of doing good things and going to church, but following Jesus isn't just a good idea or a middle-of-the-road decision, Pastor Carl noted. "Jesus doesn't want 'some' of you, He wants ALL of you!"

Pastor Carl then outlined what the decision means and what it looks like if you have crossed over to be a follower of Jesus:

  1. You give up the right to "GIVE SOME". Give all of what you have now and give as if you don't have later. The two curse words at Hillsong NYC are: "someday" and "almost." There is no middle ground at this church. And if you are in the middle, we still love you anyway. 
  2. You give up the right ot give up. People give up when they get hit by something. But Jesus hasn't given up on you, so you can't give up on you. 
  3. You do not give up on people. But you also have to remember that you're not the one saving people, Jesus is! It's all about Jesus, not you. 

We're looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, where we'll be meeting at Irving Plaza (17 Irving pl) at 10, 12, 2, 5, 7 and 9 p.m. See you at church!

Silent Night, Holy Night, All Was Calm, All Was Bright

Author: 
NYC Team
New York City, Hillsong

Everyone knows the words to this famous Christmas carol. During the holiday season you could hear this beautiful hymn sung over and over again in shopping malls, church services, park concerts – there is something so comforting, so beautifully seasonal about familiar Christmas songs.


Yet the words of this one carol have played repeatedly on my mind this particular year. SILENT night. HOLY night. All was CALM. It paints a picture, doesn’t it? A simple birth, in the most common of environments, under a starry sky….PEACEFUL. And I don’t know about you, but when I think of this holiday season for me and my family I would probably use words more like ‘busy’, ‘hectic’, ‘tiring’… to describe the schedule we keep during the month of December.

Think about it. When you bump into a friend at the shops, purchasing last minute Christmas gifts or a neighbour hurriedly backing out of their driveway to get to the school Christmas fair and you ask “How are you?”, I bet you’ve never received the response – “peaceful”. In the same way, in the midst of recent tragedy overseas, there will be hundreds of families in an otherwise sleepy town in Connecticut who will be experiencing everything but calm this Christmas. Dozens of children the world over in politically unstable and war torn countries like Syria and Afghanistan who’s night will be anything but silent. And even now, people are experiencing pain, not peace, in parts of Samoa and Fiji where violent storms have created chaos and ruin.

Christmas is a season of shared reality, when the empathy of God came to us in human form. It was on Christmas Day when God chose not to be separated from us, but to come down – Emmanuel - God WITH us. In the middle of busy-ness, in the middle of tragedy, or at the close of maybe your greatest year yet…Christmas is a poignant reminder that He ENTERS the middle of our circumstances. Christ chose to identify with us, come right into the middle of the broken things, the real issues of life and bring His sovereign peace, His unconditional love to a world in desperate need.

So this year, be reminded that God reached out to us, extends His peace to us and brings rest -His rest -to those searching for answers and even just to those of us who are running from one Christmas dinner to the next.

Don’t let the peace of God be elusive this year. Don’t allow the lights, the gifts, and the parties to mask the holiness of this season. I pray you know the fullness of what happened on that Silent Night and experience again this year, the reality that Christ the Saviour is born.

Merry Christmas,

Brian Houston
