Green Hill Presbyterian Church

We believe that we are here to worship and obey God, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit so that people will come to know and trust Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, grow in obedience to Him, and become involved in service to the world.

Green Hill is a small, loving, and caring church family of active duty and retired military and non-military members from across the United States and the world. We are drawn together as one family in Christ to express the absolute joy and wonder of God’s love through worship, Christian education, fellowship activities and community outreach.

We minister to our permanent members and also take great pride and pleasure in providing a spiritual home for service members and their families while they are assigned to Fort Rucker. We welcome all who wish to join our family as we seek to know Christ and make Christ known.

In Loving Memory of Charles Davis

Retired US Army CW4 Charles Oliver Davis, 84 years old, went to be with the Lord, Friday, June 16, 2017, at the VA Medical Center, in Asheville, N.C.

He was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather and truly impacted everyone that he knew. He was preceded in death by his parents Lex B. Davis and Edna Floyd Davis, four sisters and three brothers. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Geraldine Collins Davis; three children, Linda Kelley (Shawn), Edward Davis (Kathleen), and Sheila Kelley (Chuck). Survivors also include eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Also surviving are his sisters, Louise Fowler and Carolyn Ippolilio and several nieces and nephews.

Charles Davis was born in Black Mountain, N.C. in 1932. He entered active duty military service in 1949 and his service would span the course of 30 years. Although he held many positions, aviation would become his specialty. Davis achieved the rank of Chief Warrant Officer 4, and was awarded numerous medals including the Distinguished Flying Cross, Purple Heart, and 30 Air Medals. He also earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business. His military career began as an Army paratrooper medic, serving in Korea. In 1956, he took the opportunity to attend flight school in Ft. Wolters, Texas. He eventually returned to North Carolina and was assigned to Ft. Bragg, as an Army flight instructor. In 1961, he was re-assigned to Okinawa to the infamous UTT (Utility Tactical Transport Helicopter Company) which would play a huge involvement in the Vietnam War. Even before the Vietnam War started, Davis was considered a highly experienced pilot. After his military career concluded, he became involved in law enforcement in south Alabama, and worked his way to becoming a police chief before finally returning to North Carolina in 2013.

He and his wife Gerri were active members of the Green Hill Presbyterian Church in Enterprise, Alabama for 35 years.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to the VA Medical Center in Asheville, NC for their constant care and support.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Green Hill Presbyterian Church in Enterprise, AL or the VA Medical Center (CLC1 Bingo).

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at Harwood Home For Funerals in Black Mountain, N.C. A memorial service will immediately follow with Chaplain Edward Tanner officiating. Burial will be at 2:00 pm at the Veterans Cemetery in Black Mountain, NC.

Trinity Sunday, June 11, 2017

worship-badge

On Trinity Sunday we proclaim the mystery of our faith in the triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, One-in-Three and Three-in-One.

The celebration of Trinity Sunday began among Western Christians in the 10th century and developed slowly until it was formally established on the Sunday after Pentecost by Pope John XXII (1316-1334).


UNFATHOMABLE MYSTERY

An excerpt from the Companion to the Book of Common Worship (Geneva Press, 2003, 149-150)

Unlike other festivals in the church’s liturgical calendar, Trinity Sunday centers on a doctrine of the church, rather than an event. It celebrates the unfathomable mystery of God’s being as Holy Trinity. It is a day of adoration and praise of the one, eternal, incomprehensible God.

Trinity Sunday, in a sense, synthesizes all we have celebrated over the past months which have centered on God’s mighty acts: Christmas-Epiphany celebrating God’s taking flesh and dwelling among us in Jesus Christ; Easter celebrating Christ’s death and resurrection for us; Pentecost celebrating God the Holy Spirit becoming our Sanctifier, Guide, and Teacher. It is, therefore, a fitting transition to that part of the year when Sunday by Sunday the work of God among us is unfolded in a more general way.

The triune God is the basis of all we are and do as Christians. In the name of this triune God we are baptized. As the baptized ones we bear the name of the triune God in our being. We are of the family of the triune God. We affirm this parentage when, in reciting the creeds, we say what we believe. Our discipleship is rooted in the mighty acts of this triune God who is active in redeeming the world. The triune God is the basis of all our prayers — we pray to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, by the Holy Spirit. The Trinity holds central place in our faith. …

In celebrating Trinity Sunday, remember that every Lord’s Day is consecrated to the triune God. On the first day of the week, God began creation. On the first day of the week, God raised Jesus from the grave. On the first day of the week, the Holy Spirit descended on the newly born church. Every Sunday is special. Every Sunday is a day of the Holy Trinity.
