Weekly Announcements, November 19, 2020


All members of Green Hill are asked to attend NEXT Sunday’s Congregational Meeting (November 29), immediately following the morning worship service. At this meeting we will vote to elect new Elders to the Session as well as vote on new Church Trustees. Our nominating committee will present their recommendations for the congregation to consider.


The flowers in the Sanctuary have been placed to the Glory of God and In Loving Memory of Donna Bigler, by her family. A Celebration of Life for Donna will be held at 12:00 Noon on Wednesday, November 25, 2020 at Meadowlawn Memorial Park for friends and family. (Please wear your mask at the service.)


We use white in the Sanctuary any time we are celebrating days that emphasize the divinity of Christ: Christmas, Easter, Baptism of the Lord, Christ the King, and so on. For the most part, if you find white paraments in the sanctuary, you are worshiping on a day that has great significance to our understanding of Jesus as God.  The festival of Christ the King (or Reign of Christ) ends our marking of Ordinary Time after the Day of Pentecost, and moves us to the threshold of Advent, the season of hope for Christ’s coming again at the end of time.  The day centers on the crucified and risen Christ, whom God exalted to rule over the whole universe. The celebration of the lordship of Christ thus looks back to Ascension, Easter, and Transfiguration, and points ahead to the appearing in glory of the King of kings and Lord of lords.


This Sunday is the final day we are collecting Operation Christmas Child boxes at Green Hill. On Monday Sandra will take all of the boxes over to St. Luke’s Church where they will begin their journey across the world. If you still have a box to deliver, you can bring it to Green Hill on Sunday, or you can deliver it to St. Luke’s yourself on Sunday from Noon to 2pm or on Monday from 9am to 11am. Thank you to everyone who packed a box this year.
