Hi Hillyer Youth and Parents! I hope you had a God-filled week!  Read below to see what’s happening in our church family…

Highlights for this week…

  • There is no Hillyer Live, Chi Rho, or CYF this Sunday.  Only JYF will be meeting for youth groups. 
  • This weekend is the Chi Rho and CYF Fall Retreat at Camp Caroline.  If you are going on the retreat, please be at the church at 4:45 on Friday.  The van is leaving at 5:00.  Scott Gray, Amanda Jones, and Bridget Caulder will be driving everyone down.  We will be returning on Sunday around 1:30.  Youth need money for dinner on the way down and lunch on the way back.
  • Every family is asked to host Snack Supper once during the year.  If you haven’t signed up yet you can do it now http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0C49A8AB2CABF94-sunday.  You can also contact Susan Gray (susan.daughter3@gmail.com) if you would prefer.
  • Parents…Caroline and I need volunteers to help out with the Nursery, Preschool, and Children’s Church.  If you are free one Sunday in November or December, please consider signing up online or contact me (Lhmiles2@gmail.com).  Youth, if you would like to help out, please talk with your parents as we have to have someone over the age of 18 in each room to volunteer, but we would love for you to sign up with them.

Remember you are deeply loved by God and called to share that love with the world around you!

Anonymous Survey For Parents

Standard

Dear Youth Parents,

As we enter our new school year and begin our search for a new associate minister at Hillyer, we need your thoughts!  You are encouraged to fill out the survey below to help us know the best ways we can partner with you as we do ministry together for the youth of Hillyer.  These responses will be shared with our youth leaders at Hillyer as they prepare for youth ministry in the coming years.

Snack Supper

Standard

Snack Supper 

Every Sunday night all youth 3rd-12th grade gather around the tables at Hillyer to eat together! Our bellies and souls are nourished by great food and amazing relationships built around the table.

 Each week a different family volunteers to prepare the meal.  The youth make a $3 donation ($10 family max) to help cover the costs.  Every family with an active youth participant is asked to volunteer to help with snack supper once during the year.  See the schedule and sign up here: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0C49A8AB2CABF94-sunday/1659733
