Hillyer Youth News: November 8


  • Handbells have a performance this Sunday, November 13, for both services. Practice will be at 8:30am in the Sanctuary. Please be on time and we will run the song Simple Gifts a couple of times before the congregation enters the sanctuary.
  • Sunday night, November 13, there will be Regular Youth (6:00-7:30pm). Please be sure to arrive at 6:00pm, sharp, with brown bag in hand, ready to practice a youth choir piece for the Hanging of the Greens. We have a limited time to practice!!
    • Parents, if your kids are picking up Chargrill you may want to arrive by 5:45pm. We love supporting our neighborhood business, but it does take some time to get your meal!

Christmas Parade Lock-in…

  • Friday, November 18, Chi Rho (middle school) will meet at 8:00pm for our annual Christmas Parade Lock-in! After spending the night, our youth will be selling breakfast at the Raleigh Christmas Parade! The fundraiser proceeds will be split between youth missions and youth scholarships. But we need your help! Would you consider donating sausage biscuits? Biscuits are pure profit for us, so we will take as many as you are willing to donate! You can bring your biscuits to the church anytime that week and place them in the Hillyer kitchen marked “Christmas Parade.” Please do not individually wrap your biscuits. Our youth will wrap and reheat the biscuits for Saturday morning. For size reference, think “Bojangles biscuit.”
  • We hope you will join us on the steps Saturday morning to watch the parade. We begin at 6:00am and go non stop until noon. This is one of the best neighborhood outreaches on our program calendar. You don’t want to miss it!
