Greetings Hillside Family from your Elder Team Leader!
Millie and I are very fortunate that our three daughters, their husbands, and seven grandchildren all live within seventy miles of each other. As a result, we are able to all gather together to celebrate holidays, birthdays, and any other reason we can come up with.
Our Hillside Family will have such an opportunity to gather together and celebrate on September 30th with an event we are calling our “Annual Family Celebration”. Not only do we want to celebrate Hillside Fellowship turning 25 years old this year, but also reflect on what Jesus has accomplished over the past twelve months and to look forward to what plans He has for us in the foreseeable future. The Annual Family Celebration will be held at Hillside the evening of September 30th beginning at 5:00 p.m. The event will include our Worship Team leading us in song, Pastor Dave reflecting on the past goodness of God as well as what we believe He has in store for us in the upcoming years, and The Annual Membership Meeting where my continuation of service as an Elder and the Annual Budget will be considered. Voting by proxy will be open on September 16th and is encouraged to assure that a necessary quorum is obtained for the meeting.
Our goal is to dismiss by 6:00 p.m. for dinner and fellowship. Kids Ministry will be available through Hillside Kids for newborns to 5 years old, and fun festivities for the school aged children will be available beginning at 5:00 p.m. All three Sunday worship services will still be held that morning, as usual.
In addition to this event, please mark your calendars for a “Town Hall” meeting on Wednesday, September 19th. This meeting will be held in the Hillside auditorium beginning at 7:00 p.m. This is your opportunity to interact with the Elder Team regarding my continuation of service as an Elder and the process and content of the Annual Budget for 2018-2019.
It is a pleasure being on mission with all of you to worship God by proclaiming Jesus, making disciples rooted in the Word of God, all empowered by the Spirit of God.
Jesus truly changes everything!
