In addition to being a PCUSA church, Green Hill is also a member of The Fellowship Community, a group of conservative churches within the PCUSA. We have been a member of The Fellowship Community since April 2012, and we proudly display the logo on our website and on our digital sign. Yes, we are a PCUSA church, but we want everyone to know that we are so much more.
The beginnings of The Fellowship Community (TFC) date back to 1989, when a group called Presbyterians for Renewal (PFR) was formed. There have been several mergers and name changes along the way, but the objective of the organization has stayed the same: to glorify God.
Statement from The Fellowship Community:
Human beings need an authentic community where we truly belong: where we can celebrate and where we can cry; where we can be challenged to be our very best and where we can be forgiven when we have been our very worst.
We need a community where we can be welcomed and accepted, no matter who we are, where we’ve been, or what we’ve done, where we can grow in our relationship with God and our relationship with one another.
We need a community where humility is genuine, radical life change is expected, spiritual growth and transformation is celebrated, and prayer and worship are central.
We need to be part of a community that is not about us except to help us be our best as we love, serve, and influence the world around us.
The Body of Christ, the Church, is intended to be this community. But, for many of us, the contemporary “church” that we experience is tired, stressed, embattled, and afraid; a place of confusion, conflict, and fragmentation; a poor imitation of the broken world around it.
The Fellowship Community is a network of churches and leaders called together to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ by growing in Christ’s likeness, living by God’s word, and joining in God’s mission in the world.
