Valentine’s Luncheon…

  • Sunday, February 11, our upper elementary school students will host a luncheon for our most seasoned Hillyer members… in the 70-100 age category! We ask parents and your young person (people) to join us at 10:00am in the Fellowship Hall. At that time we will set the tables for the luncheon and coach the young people on how to “host” their table. At the end of the 11:00am worship, you will head back downstairs to get ready to serve the folks who join us. The biggest help we will need from parents is to assist Allen Richardson with washing and putting away the dishes. (Allen is our industrial dishwasher volunteer!) The luncheon concludes after the meal and dishes have been finished – around 1:00, 1:30pm!
