FROM THE PASTOR’S CORNER
Labor Day is just around the corner; schools are back in session, and “all’s well with the world”, or is it?
Well, if we listen to the news of the world…not so much. But if we listen with eyes of faith, we are where persons of faith have always been, safe in the arms of God who loves us. That does not protect us from harm, but it is balm for the soul. God has covenanted to be with us always. That’s a promise we can rely on. But we have to take action too. As Disciples of Christ, we need to feed on God’s Word, and demonstrate our belief in actionable ways.
See you Sunday!
Information for the September Green Hill Good Newsletter needs to be submitted to the church office by September 22. You can contact the office by email or by phone, or you can drop your news off in the basket on the door. Many thanks to those who contribute!
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR NEWEST EAGLE SCOUTS!
Congratulations to the two newest Eagle Scouts from BSA Troop 150: Vean Norton and Donovan Alford! These young men have worked hard to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, which is the highest achievement attainable in the Scouts BSA program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
The final piece of Vean’s journey was his Eagle Scout project, building much needed new entrance stairs at The Bridge Church. For his Eagle Scout project, Donovan repurposed the old marquee sign from Green Hill Presbyterian and transformed it into a new information sign at the SOS Animal Shelter.
Congratulations are also due to everyone who came together to help Vean and Donovan in their journeys to become Eagle Scouts: family, friends, build teams, and of course the members of Troop 150B, Troop 150G, Crew 150, and Pack 150.
PATRIOT DAY CEREMONY
On Saturday, September 11, the Enterprise community will come together to commemorate the events of 9/11. The ceremony, which will be held at Johnny Henderson Park, will begin at 10:00am. Last year was the first time this particular ceremony was held. This year the ceremony will fall on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
In the days prior to the ceremony, local Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and other volunteers, will go out to the park to place 2,977 flags to honor all the lives lost that day. This impressive display takes several hours to install, and all volunteer help is appreciated. Work will begin at 4pm on the 7th and again on the 8th.
POLLINATOR GARDEN UPDATE
It has been slow going, but things are blooming in the garden! The purple Lantanna that was rescued from the distressed table at the store is flourishing. The Beauty Berry trees are losing their white buds and should turn purple with the cool weather. The Milk Weed plants don’t show any evidence of hosting caterpillars yet, but lots of other pollinators have been visiting. The pinestraw has become a home for all sorts of crickets and beetles. Next spring the garden should be filled with blossoms and blooms, and, we hope, beautiful butterflies, bees, and more!
