Hi Hillyer Youth and Parents!

I hope you had a God-filled week!  I hope you are excited for youth groups this week!  Remember this is the first week of Hillyer Live, so come sing and ring with us from 4:15-6:00.  It is also my last Sunday at Hillyer.  I would love to see you at Hillyer to be able to tell you goodbye and say thank you for the many ways I have seen God in you all.

If you missed the parent meeting last week, you can find all the important documents on this website.  The calendar is available under the calendar tab.  Under forms you can find the health and permission form for this year, the fall retreat form, snack supper sign up, sponsor’s contact info, and more!  All forms can be emailed into Luke Miles at lhmiles2@gmail.com or brought to the church office. You can also find a link to a parent survey that will help guide our search committee and new pastor in their planning of youth ministry at Hillyer here: http://hillyeryouth.wordpress.com/2013/09/11/anonymous-survey-for-parents/

Below are details for what is going on in Hillyer Youth Ministries in the next few weeks!  Come join us!
