February 17th, 2016

Well let's start with the big story. This past weekend our Pastors broke the amazing news that our church - City of Grace, is becoming Hillsong Phoenix. Here's a short excerpt from our website:


After years of serving as a large, vibrant, multi-site church in the Phoenix metro area, and after much prayer and planning, we are excited to announce that we have become the 16th global campus of Hillsong Church.

City of Grace is now Hillsong Phoenix.  Under the visionary leadership of our Senior Pastors, Brian and Bobbie Houston, and with the continuing direction of Lead Pastors Terry and Judith Crist, we believe this will position us to reach tens of thousands in the region with the love, grace, and hope of Jesus. Welcome home Phoenix. You belong here.

Forte - Music Company

This past weekend our senior music company was invited to perform and be the evening's enterainment at the Mesa Riverview Chick-Fil-a. Reports were that it was a smashing success and a great Valentines party. If you see a Forte member or Ms. Nita around, give them a high-five. AND, if reading this makes you hungry, grab a quick bite from our friends at the Mesa Riverview Chick-Fil-a. They have been super supportive of EAS and we're glad to support them in return.


Time flies and it's hard to believe we're already in week 6. So if you have yet to make an initial payment we need you to email us straight away at - billing@experienceartsschool.com and we will help you get set up.
