Green Hill Good News Online* Edition for March 2022
FROM THE PASTOR’S CORNER
Welcome Spring! Welcome Lent!
We begin the month celebrating Ash Wednesday (March 2nd). Our Wednesday Bible Study will be offering the Intinction of Ashes to commemorate the beginning of the Season of Lent. We will begin our month, as always, at the Table of our Lord for Communion and a special celebration. We will remember to turn our clocks FORWARD to welcome Daylight Savings, and to welcome Spring later in the month.
See you on Sunday!
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME BEGINS
Don’t forget to change your clocks before you go to bed on Saturday night, March 12. On Sunday morning, March 13, Daylight Saving Time begins, and we will lose an hour. We look forward to seeing you at church on Sunday morning, at the correct time.
On Sunday, March 6, immediately following the worship service, all members of Green Hill are invited to a lunch in the fellowship hall.
SCOUTS BSA AT GREEN HILL
Scouts BSA Sunday was such a success last month. We are so happy that we were able worship with the boys, girls, and leaders of BSA Unit 150 and enjoy fellowship with them following the service.
Green Hill has a long history with the Boy Scouts of America. BSA Unit 150 was founded by the members of Green Hill more than 45 years ago. Many of our youth have gone through the program, and several of our members have become Eagle Scouts. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives, and Green Hill is proud to support these objectives as the Chartered Organization for BSA Troop 150B (boys), BSA Troop 150G (girls), Venture Crew 150, and Cub Pack 150.
GIRL SCOUT (GSUSA) SUNDAY
All area Girl Scouts are invited to attend the morning worship service at Green Hill Presbyterian Church on Sunday, March 13.
The Worship Service begins at 11:00am. All girls are asked to wear their uniforms. At the beginning of the service our Girl Scouts will post the colors, lead the pledge of allegiance, as well as recite the Girl Scout Promise and Law. The Girl Scouts will be called upon to act as ushers and to take on other tasks in the service. Immediately following the service we will have refreshments in the Fellowship Hall.
In March of each year, Girl Scouts take time to recognize the anniversary of the founding of the very first Girl Scout Troop. This year the Girl Scout organization is celebrating its 110th anniversary! Part of this annual celebration is Girl Scout Sunday which is a time for Girl Scouts to be recognized in their places of worship and for them to reflect on the importance of the words “To Serve God” in the Girl Scout Promise.
The mission of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character. More than 50 million American women have participated in Girl Scouting, and that number continues to grow as Girl Scouts of the USA continues to inspire, challenge, and empower girls everywhere.
