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 Christ known.

END OF YEAR CELEBRATION
It’s the end of the school year, and time to celebrate the beginning of summer! On Wednesday, May 29, our regular Fellowship Supper will be replaced with a cookout! There will be hamburgers, chips, slaw, potato salad, and beans. There will also be a Make Your Own Sundae bar! Please bring your favorite Sundae topping to eat and to share. At the cook out we will also recognize our Green Hill Softball Team for their dedication to the season. We appreciate our Team! If you plan to attend, please grab an orange slip from the pew rack and turn it in so we know how much food to prepare.
Next Sunday is Pentecost Sunday, the day in the Christian calendar when we commemorate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus’ Apostles. During Sunday’s Offertory, we will take up a Special Pentecost Offering. Forty percent of this offering will be used here in the Enterprise community to help children at risk. The remaining sixty percent will be used by the Presbyterian Church to support national missions for child advocacy and youth ministries. Red and white envelopes are available in the pew racks for those who feel called to contribute to this Special Offering.

Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was as white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
The Lamb was sure to go.
He followed her to school each day,
‘Twasn’t even in the rule.
He made the children laugh and play,
To have a Lamb at school.
And then the rules all changed one day,
Illegal it became;
To bring the Lamb of God to school,
Or even speak His Name.
Every day got worse and worse,
And days turned into years.
Instead of hearing children laugh,
We heard gunshots and tears.
What must we do to stop the crime,
That’s in our schools today?
Let’s let the Lamb come back to school,
And teach our kids to pray!

On Sunday the Presbyterian Women of Green Hill hosted their annual Birthday Lunch to celebrate the birthdays of everyone in the church at once! It was a wonderful afternoon of Christian Fellowship. At the event, a special collection was taken up for this year’s charity, the Westminster Neighborhood Ministries. Thanks to the generosity of our members, nearly $600 was raised. We know this money is going to go a long way to help the families supported by WNM.
