About greenhillpc

We believe that we are here to worship and obey God, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit so that people will come to know and trust Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, grow in obedience to Him and become involved in service to the world. Green Hill is a small loving and caring church family of active duty and retired military and non-military members from across the United States and the world. We are drawn together as one family in Christ to express the absolute joy and wonder of God’s love through worship, Christian education, fellowship activities and community outreach. We minister to our permanent members and also take great pride and pleasure in providing a spiritual home for service members and their families while they are assigned to Fort Rucker. We welcome all who wish to join our family as we seek to know Christ and make Him known.

Today We Light the Candle of Joy

advent joy

On the third Sunday of Advent, we light the candle of Joy. This candle is also referred to as the Shepherd’s Candle. We are reminded that God sent the angels to proclaim His arrival to common man and that He still uses ordinary people today to spread the good news of Christ. The candle is pink or rose to represent God’s faithfulness.

The annual Congregational Meeting for 2017 will be held on Sunday, December 31, immediately following the morning worship service. All Green Hill members are asked to attend. The purpose of this meeting is to elect two Elders to the Session.


Information for the January Green Hill Good Newsletter needs to be submitted to the church office by Monday, December 18. This early deadline is necessary so we can get the newsletter complete for Christmas. Many thanks to those who contribute!


The purple Christmas Joy Offering envelopes are in the pew racks for anyone who feels called to make a contribution to this fund. Donations will be used to support retired ministers and their families and for racial and ethnic religious programs at colleges.


If you are going place a poinsettia in the Sanctuary for Christmas, Monday, December 18, is the last day to let the church office know. Please fill out one of the red slips from the pew racks and drop it in the offering plate or in the basket on the office door. The names of everyone being honored/remembered will be printed in the Christmas Eve bulletin.


“After considering how we speak the Truth of God’s Word into a confused culture, the board of the Presbyterian Lay Committee announces the renaming and reorganizing of the ministry as Reformation Press, a media ministry impressing the mind of Christ into the culture by informing and equipping Christians to speak the mind of Christ on matters of the day.  In the coming weeks, the ministry of will be discontinued. Further announcements about Reformation Press and The Reconnect radio program will be forthcoming as we reorganize and relaunch in 2018.”

Everyone is invited to attend the 26th Annual Drive-Thru Live Nativity at St. Luke United Methodist Church, on Heath Street, in Enterprise.  The display will be open on Saturday, December 9, and Sunday, December 10, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.  This is a wonderful tradition to share with your family.


A Chrismon Tree is a variation of the Christmas Tree developed in the 20th century. It is decorated with ornaments called Chrismons, or Christian Symbols. The concept was developed in 1957 by Frances Kipps Spencer, a member of the Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, Virginia. Mrs. Spencer wanted to create decorations appropriate for a church’s Christmas celebrations.

At Green Hill Presbyterian Church, we carry on the tradition of the Chrismon Tree. All of our ornaments have been hand made by the ladies of the church, with some of the ornaments being over thirty years old. Each year the tree is decorated by our church family as part of the Greening of the Church.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the church on Wednesday to take part in decorating the tree. Mrs. Spencer stated a tree was never finished until someone came to see it and have the story of Christ explained to them through the ornaments. We are proud to continue this tradition.
