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.

SCOUTS BSA WELCOMES GIRLS
As you may have heard, Boy Scouts are now accepting girls into their organization. The “Boy Scouts” have re-branded themselves “Scouts BSA.” Troop #150 at Green Hill will be open to girls beginning February 1, 2019. These girls will meet at the same time as the boys, but they will be in a separate, all-girl troop.
GIRL SCOUT COOKIES ARE FOR SALE
In other scouting news, it’s Girl Scout Cookie Season! Our very own Kendall, Makayla, and Emma have cookies in hand and they are ready to sell. The cookies are still $4 per box, and the girls have every flavor except the new gluten-free cookies. If you can’t eat the cookies, you can buy a box to donate to the Green Hill Food Pantry. The needy families the church supports enjoy getting little surprises from time to time.
Kendall, Makayla, and Emma earned their Silver Awards last year, which is the second-highest award in Girl Scouting. Kendall, who is now a Senior Girl Scout, is currently working to earn her Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouting. These three girls are doing amazing things! Thank you for supporting your local Girl Scouts.

Scripture Reading: Hebrews 11:1-40
At the beginning of his public ministry, Jesus presents himself to John to be baptized in the Jordan. The heavens open, the Holy Spirit descends as a dove and we hear the voice of God: “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased” (see Psalm 2:7).
At this festival of the Christian year, we not only remember Jesus’ baptism, but we celebrate our own: the baptism we share with Christ. Accordingly, this Sunday is an appropriate time to celebrate the sacrament of baptism or the reaffirmation of the baptismal covenant. It also foreshadows the season of Lent, as Jesus was immediately driven into the wilderness for 40 days after his own Baptism.

Epiphany is the celebration of God’s manifestation or self-revelation to the world in Jesus Christ. In particular, we celebrate the revelation of God’s promise and purpose to the nations of the world, as the magi came from the East to worship to the Christ child, and God’s covenant of grace is extended to all who believe the good news of Christ Jesus. The symbolism of light is important: not only because of the star that guided the magi, but as it relates to the bright dawning of God’s self-revelation in Christ.
