Thursday Morning Update–January 13, 2011

Dear Friends of Hill’s Church,

This is an exciting time around Hill’s Church! A new Consistory met last night for the first time and had a very good meeting in spite of the weather. I hope you will pray for the 2011 members of Consistory and their ministry at Hill’s.

This Sunday is the 16th of January and the sermon will be “The Discipes’ Diary.” In this sermon, I will be asking the question, “Why did these men follow Jesus?”

After worship, Chris Ericson will be leading the Youth Group (and anyone who is interested) in a Bowling Outing at Moose Lanes in Export. Cost is $3 per game. Come along!

On Monday, January 17th, a Youth Handbell Choir is being organized, led by Jeff Hanks. The youth do not need to be members of Hill’s to participate! If you are interested, please contact the church office, Linda Dulaney, or Jeff Hanks for more details. The time is 7 p.m.

Plan on coming to the Adjourned Congregational Meeting, after worship on Sunday, January 30th in the Steele Building. Bring along your February Newsletters (which went out today) because it has many of the year end reports, budget, etc. It is a covered dish event after worship.

Blessings to you this weekend.

Keep safe in the snow.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Joseph

“I am no longer my own, but thine.
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee,
exalted for thee or brought low for thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit, thou art mine,
and I am thine.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven.
–John Wesley’s Covenant Prayer, traditionally used at New Year’s
