What better way to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. than to join with the church community to lend a hand in service.

Join us Martin Luther King weekend for three special opportunities to serve. An opportunity to stir your heart for the way God is calling you to reach your church, your family and your city.

“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle… or Einstein’s Theory of Relativity … or the Second Theory of Thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” —                      Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Saturday January 18

8:30 to 3:00

Do you have a few hours this Saturday, the 18th? If you do, please come participate in our church work day.

With only a few hours, you could make a big difference by helping to spruce up various areas in the church which could really benefit from some “sprucing.” Here is a short list of some of the things you could do:

  • Paint the two bathrooms closest to the west entrance.
  • Paint the stairs at the east entrance.
  • Clean out and organize “the shed” – and a few closets.

 

We will gather at 8:30 – and finish by 3:00 – but if you can only give a few hours, don’t worry. Come by at any time – and we will help you make sure you are able to make the biggest difference in the time you do have. No sign up is required.

Come in your work clothes – and enjoy rolling your sleeves up with your Hills Church friends.

 

Contact Elaine Vildzius-vildzius@gmail.com, Andy Wilson – aw6022@gmail.com, or Alex Kolb – kolbalex@gmail.com with any questions.

Sunday January 19

One hour of service. After worship we will gather as a church family, have light refreshments then go forth for an hour of service. There are many projects designed to help the church and others in the wider community. All projects are on site and stationed around the church. Projects are designed for young people, old people, and everyone in-between. After the hour or so, we will regather, review and close with prayer. There will be many hands-on projects. All will start in the Assembly room at 11:30 Sunday morning. Donations will be collected for some projects. Please see posters in the Assembly room.
