It is anticipated that more than 20,000 Austin-area families are expected to attend its first-ever outdoor service, April 8, 2012, at 10 A.M. CDT, located on the sprawling 110-acre Westinghouse campus in Georgetown, TX.

"It's a great time to use the property that the Lord gave to us several years ago and it's always been our vision to see people worshiping out on that hill. On the heels of our 12th year anniversary, it's going to be amazing," said Celebration Church Co-pastor, Lori Champion.

Celebration Church Pastor Joe Champion said, "As the son of an NFL coach, and also someone who came to know Christ thanks to two NFL players who were willing to share the Gospel with me, I am extremely excited to have Tim Tebow with us this year. We believe this year's service will impact the lives of those who would never enter the doors of a church."

Pastors Joe & Lori Champion expect those who attend will be encouraged by Tebow's inspirational remarks and a Resurrection Day message of hope and healing from Pastor Joe.

"Easter on the Hill" is an outdoor, lawn seating service for the entire family. Participants are encouraged to bring a friend, pack a snack, grab a blanket or chair and enjoy the worship experience.

Gates open at 8 A.M. with service time beginning at 10 A.M.

Off-site parking is required at partnering locations listed online including Round Rock Premium Outlets, Texas State University and Dell Diamond. A non-stop bus service will shuttle churchgoers to the church site.
