1 Timothy 4:12

LOL (Live Out Loud)

Hi Hillyer Youth and Parents! Can you believe it’s already the middle of October…I’m glad it’s finally cooled off…what a reLEAF!  See what’s happening in our church family so you are not FALL-ing behind.

Highlights for the Week…

  • Regular youth groups will resume this week.  Hillyer Live will start at 4:15, followed by Snack Supper at 6:00, and then youth groups at 6:30.  See you there!  And bring a friend!
  • Caroline and I will be out of town with limited access to email for the next two weeks for vacation.  We will try to respond to as many emails as possible, but if you have any questions that need immediate attention, please contact David Mallory or Lynne McHaney.


  • Next week is the CROP Walk through the streets of downtown Raleigh on Sunday, October 27. The Hillyer walkers will either meet at the church at 1:30 pm or meet at Marbles Museum at 2:00 pm. All proceeds from this event support Church World Service ministries to feed the hungry in our community and our world. Hillyer has always taken a lead role in this ministry. Last year we had more than 50 walkers and raised more than $5,000 dollars. This year we are aiming to exceed both goals. The signup table will be located in the Fellowship Hall every Sunday leading up to the walk or you can register online at http://www.cropwalkraleigh.com/. Make sure you signup to join the Hillyer team. For more information, contact Dave Buckey or Bonnie Cole.
  • There will be no Hillyer Live or Youth Groups next Sunday, October 27th.  We are encouraging everyone to come out and walk in the CROP Walk instead.
  • On November 10th, Moe’s at Cameron Village will be hosting a Hillyer Youth Fundraiser from 6:00 – 8:00.  Please mark your calendar for this delicious event!  All you have to do is eat and Hillyer gets paid!
  • Every family is asked to host Snack Supper once during the year.  If you haven’t signed up yet you can do it now (http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0C49A8AB2CABF94-sunday).  You can also contact Susan Gray (susan.daughter3@gmail.com) if you would prefer.
  • Parents…Caroline and I need volunteers to help out with the Nursery, Preschool, and Children’s Church.  If you are free one Sunday in November or December, please consider signing up online or contact me (Lhmiles2@gmail.com).  Youth, if you would like to help out, please talk with your parents as we have to have someone over the age of 18 in each room to volunteer, but we would love for you to sign up with them.

God Bless,
