Green Hill Presbyterian Church

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.

Toys for Tots Registration is Underway

(The following article appeared in the October 16, 2014, Southeast Sun.)

The Marine Corps League Wiregrass Detachment, along with 15 organizations from Coffee, Dale, Geneva, Henry and Houston counties, are partnering to organize registration for the 9th annual Toys for Tots program in the Wiregrass. Last year, over 2,800 children in our local communities received Christmas gifts from the Toys for Tots program.

If you have not already signed up your kids for a Christmas toys program and if you are a resident of Coffee, Dale, Geneva, Henry or Houston County with children between the ages of 0 – 12 years of age and would like to sign them up for this year’s Toys For Tots program, dial 2-1-1 (toll free) on your phone or 1-888-421-1266 between the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. only, Monday through Friday. A 2-1-1 call specialist will review the qualifications with you and let you know when and where to sign up your children. Registration will end Nov. 20.

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during the year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to children who may not have had the opportunity of receiving gifts. The primary goal is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to these children and to motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.

If you would like to donate to this year’s Toys For Tots program, be a drop off location for donated new toys, or for additional information, call Toys for Tots Coordinator Mike Walton at (334) 712-6843.

This Year’s Legacy Christmas CDs Now Available!

legacy2

This year’s batch of Legacy Christmas CDs has arrived, and the Presbyterian Women of Green Hill are pleased to make them available to you.  We have both Treasured Carols of the Kirk, which debuted last year, and Nativity Carols and Hymns, which is brand new this year.

The carols of Christmas touch our hearts, in ways beyond any other music – reminding us of our past, bringing joy to our present, promising hope for our future.  And the word became flesh …  From the Bethlehem hills, where angel songs ring, to a lowly stable where a mother sings to her newborn babe; we journey in song through the miracle of the Nativity.  Legacy Christmas, created by acclaimed instrumentalists and vocalists, connects us, defines us, reminds us.  Emmanuel – God with us!  Gloria in excelsis!

It is beautiful music that has been recorded for two beautiful causes: Living Waters for the World provides clean water for communities which don’t have access to purified water. The Presbyterian Women Birthday Offering supports projects that improve the lives of women and children.  All proceeds raised from the CDs will be split 50/50 between these two charities.

Both versions of the CD will be available from now through the beginning of December, as long as supplies last. To get one, please see a member of the Green Hill PW, or stop by the church office. The PW is asking for a minimum donation of $15 per CD.  All donations are tax deductible and receipts are available. Pick up a CD, or two, today! They make wonderful Christmas gifts!

For a complete list of songs, and to hear samples of the music, click HERE.
