Birthday Sunday 2015
On Sunday, November 1st, we will celebrate our church's birthday by gathering in our regular locations and specifically celebrating each location's birthday this year.
Each fall, our church family takes the first Sunday of November to celebrate our church's birthday. On Sunday, November 1st, we will gather at our normal times & locations to celebrate what God has done in the last year, as well as anticipate what he will do in the year ahead. Although we are one church family, each of our locations will be celebrating in a special way. The Cannery will be celebrating year 7, Marathon will be celebrating year 3, and Hillsboro Village will be celebrating year 1. It will be a special day. Mark your calendars, and bring your friends!
TWO WAYS TO CELEBRATE
One : Baptism
We believe there is no better way to celebrate our birth as a church than by celebrating the new life we are given in Jesus. On Sunday, November 1st, at all worship gatherings at each location, you and your friends will have the opportunity to express your love to Jesus publicly through water baptism.
Two : Special Offering
On Sunday, November 1st, we will take up a special offering and give 100% of the offering to 6 global partners that are near to our heart as a church family. Each global partner is directly connected to an Ethos family member. If you do not live in Nashville, or will not be present on the 1st, you can give online to the Awaken a Movement Fund all during the month of October to help with this campaign.

THREE WAYS TO HELP
One : Pray
Pray that many will give their lives to Jesus, and that God will help us live lives of radical generosity towards our brothers and sisters allover the world.
Two : Share
Share the story of God's great love towards us with your friends, family, and co-workers. Share the plans that God has laid on our hearts for blessing our world, and invite your friends and family to join in on the fun.
Three : Give
Finally, we invite you to come ready on Sunday, November 1st to give generously and joyfully for the sake of our brothers and sisters across the world.
