    • Youth contribute $3 each for their meal. Food costs will be offset from those contributions.

For Parents…

  • Are you interested in getting together with other adults to talk, to study, and to fellowship? Then Table Talk is an opportunity for you! If you feel like you do not have an intentional place of belonging at Hillyer or if you are simply looking for a peer group gathering, you are invited to meet January 10 at 4:15pm at Stag’s Head, 106 Glenwood Ave. Table Talk will meet biweekly for the spring. If you have youth grades 3-12, you can drop them off at the church to participate in Hillyer Live! Cindy Bolden, who has been working alongside the Hillyer Young Adults (HiYA) group, has offered to lead the first book study as the group develops. We hope you will embrace this opportunity to be out in the community, expanding Hillyer’s table beyond its walls while knocking down a few walls of your own.
