This Week @ Great Hills

January 1, 2016

Happy New Year!!  I hope you have a great day watching parades and football…lots and lots of football! May your favorite teams win as you celebrate the beginning of a brand new year with family and friends. I am excited about all the opportunities that lie before us as the Radiant Church this year.  I encourage you to dream big as you consider what you will do in the ministry of Great Hills in 2016!

Pastor Danny and his family are in Virginia enjoying Christmas and some much deserved time away with Ashley’s family.  In his absence Evangelist Ronnie Hill will be preaching Sunday.  He has a new message entitled “Freedom” that he will be sharing with us. It will be a great message for the first Sunday of a brand new year.  I want to encourage you to invite someone to join you for worship this week! Remember, we will be back on our regular Sunday morning schedule this week with Connect Groups meeting at 9:30.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone back from the holidays and in worship together.

Midweek rehearsals for the adult choir and orchestra kick off in the new year on January 6.  The choir meets from 6:00 to 7:30 in the choir room.  The orchestra meets in the worship center from 6:45 to 8:15. Kids ministry with choir and Awana gets started back this week as well.  All kids’ activities are from 6:00 to 7:30.  It is “bring a friend” week which is a great opportunity to introduce friends and neighbors to the kids ministry at Great Hills.  Elevate student worship kicks off this week as well at 6:00.  We are hitting the ground running into the new year.  Find a place to get involved if you haven’t already!

Your pastor and staff love you and look forward to serving our great God together throughout 2016. There is much going on and much to be done.  You are a vital part of the life and ministry of Great Hills and we look forward to all that is before us!

I’ll see you Sunday as we worship the one true Living God together.
