Message Series from 1 Timothy
“Life Together” (1 Timothy 3:15)
It continues to be a blessing to preach through Paul’s first pastoral letter to Timothy. I trust this series will be a blessing to you and to strengthen us as a church family.

The Lord’s Supper
It’s always proves to be a powerful reminder of the gospel and our unity in Christ as we observe the Lord’s Supper. This Sunday morning, May 1, and all first Sunday’s, we will be receiving the cup and the bread as a way of remembering the sacrifice and death of our Lord.

Baby / Parent Dedication
On Mother’s Day, May 8, we enter into a covenant with many moms and dads of our church family as they recognize their child(ren) as gifts from God and dedicate themselves to the Lord’s service in raising them to become His disciples.

All parents participating are asked to attend a class during the Sunday School hour; May 1 (this Sunday) at 9:15 am in room E-203. For any parents unable to attend, a ‘make-up’ class will be provided on Wednesday, May 4, at 7:00 pm in the conference room.

High School Graduation Recognition
We will be recognizing all of High School graduates during the worship service on Mother’s Day, May 8.  All students graduating who plan on participating, need to be communication with Jack Hickey (student pastor).

Pre-Marriage Class
Any couples planning on being married before the end of the 2022 calendar year are invited to participate in the ‘Pre-Marriage’ sessions, currently being provided on Sunday mornings, 9:15 am in Room D-7 (next to the fellowship hall). Pastor Charlie and Mendy are leading this class.

 New Members
To God be the glory!

Swade Mason                                             Alex Ivy

Lenley Harmon                                           Kassi Ivy

Caitlyn Armstrong                                       Ryan Ladd

Katelyn Bryant                                            Taylor Matthews

Carmen Stewart                                          Brad Williams

Pastoral Praying
Finally, it continues to be an increased burden, as well as a great blessing, to spend time specifically praying for all members of our church family; especially those going through health crises and those with spiritual needs (unsaved loved ones and family members).  Recently, we’ve been challenged from 1 Timothy devote to establish ourselves in the ministry of prayer (“all kinds of praying” for “all kinds of people). May the Hillcrest family be known as a “house of prayer” and a place “loving one another”.
