Green Hill Good News, October 2019

Green Hill Good News Online* Edition for October 2019

*Online Edition: Church members, check your e-mail and/or a printed copy for the complete newsletter.


Green Hill is a Matthew 25 Church! The Session, in its July meeting, accepted the invitation from the PC(USA)’s Mission Agency to join a new movement in our denomination to follow Jesus’ teachings in Matthew 25:31-46 by becoming active disciples and making a difference both in our local community and in the world.

We signed a pledge to:

• Build congregational vitality by deepening and energizing our faith and growing as joyful leaders and disciples
• Fearlessly applying our faith to advocate and break down the systems, practices and thinking that underlie discrimination, bias, and prejudice
• Acting on our beliefs and working to change policies and structures in our society that perpetuate economic exploitation of people who are poor
We will hear more as we develop specific plans at Green Hill! Come join us!

As always, the newsletter will be printed and ready for pickup by the last Sunday of the month, perhaps earlier.


Have you checked out the church website lately?


On Saturday, October 19, Green Hill will have a booth at the Downtown Fall Festival. This is a great opportunity to get some exposure in the community and to share our love of God with others. We will need volunteers to help staff the booth. A sign-up form will be coming out soon.

July Average: 22
August Average: 22
September Average (so far): 27

2019 Average (so far): 25

Attendance numbers are based on the information recorded in the red books. Please remember to sign in every Sunday so that we may have an accurate record of church attendance.


The Social Media Committee at Green Hill has been working on a plan to make our church more visible in the online community, which is where so many people spend their time these days. We are working on a “tagline” that can be used in online advertising, a few short words that sum up what Green Hill is all about.

Four of the taglines we are considering are:

Green Hill Presbyterian Church
Your Church Home

Green Hill Presbyterian Church
Rooted in Community, Growing in Faith

Green Hill Presbyterian Church
A Home for All

Green Hill Presbyterian Church
Know Christ, Know Your Neighbor

At some point in the near future we are going to be seeking the input from the congregation on which tagline you all think best describes Green Hill. So, take some time to look over the four taglines and be ready to tell us what you think, or to let us know if you have any tagline ideas of your own.
