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.

DOES PRAYER CHANGE THINGS?

They say that prayer changes things, but does it REALLY change anything? Oh yes! It really does!

Does prayer change your present situation or sudden circumstances? No, not always, but it does change the way you look at those events.

Does prayer change your financial future? No, not always, but it does change Who you look to for meeting your daily needs.

Does prayer change shattered hearts or broken bodies? No, not always, but it will change your source of strength and comfort.

Does prayer change your wants and desires? No, not always, but it will change your wants into what God desires!

Does prayer change how you view the world? No, not always, but it will change whose eyes you see the world through.

Does prayer change your regrets from the past? No, not always, but it will change your hopes for the future!

Does prayer change the people around you? No, not always, but it will change you – the problem isn’t always in others.

Does prayer change your life in ways you can’t explain? Oh, yes, always! And it will change you from the inside out!

So, does prayer REALLY change ANYTHING? Yes! It REALLY does change EVERYTHHING!

RETIRE YOUR AMERICAN FLAGS WITH HONOR

Many of you have noticed a new addition to the parking lot here at Green Hill. We now have a box to collect old, weathered American flags.

Flags deposited in the box will be honorably retired by the Boy Scouts of Troop #150. Congratulations to Andrew and everyone who has supported him through his Eagle Project. Well done!

CALLING A NEW MINSTER

The Admin and Finance Committee is working on the budget for the next year, and a big part of that budget is funding the call of a new minster. The Committee is considering holding a special pledge drive, separate from the regular annual pledge. To determine whether or not such a pledge drive would have the support of a congregation, a letter is being sent out to every member. Please return the tear-off portion of the letter to the church office no later than September 25. Thank you.
