Hi Hillyer Youth and Parents! See what’s happening in our church family!
Highlights for the Week…

Children ages 3-years through 2nd grade are invited to join us on Sunday from 9:30-9:55 a.m. before Sunday School for Power Praisers! Our children will have the chance to work out their Sunday morning wiggles while praising God with fun Christian songs led by Susan Gray. Twirling and jumping encouraged! Beginning January 5, we will meet every Sunday morning in the Drama room on the third floor. Make the commitment now to start a new Sunday morning routine for the New Year. Contact Susan Gray (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bill Rashleigh (email@example.com) for more information.

On Monday morning, we will wake up and spend the morning doing some mission work around the community. You must sign up for this event so Luke knows how many people.
