CONNECT: Fall Festival Was GREAT!

-submitted by Travis Flora

Saturday, October 29, several members of Holly Hill got together to put together our first Fall Festival. Wow, what a great time! Over 100 people attended and enjoyed an afternoon of fun and fellowship! There were great games and activities, and David Rogers tied the days’ events into a great devotional. We really appreciate Amber Collins for organizing this year’s event, plus all the others who volunteered their time and resources to make this event a reality. Let’s be sure to thank them for their efforts. Events like this don’t just happen, it takes all of us CONNECTing and working together to make it real! We’ve uploaded several dozen photos of the event on our Facebook page. Here’s the link. https://www.facebook.com/#!/media/set/?set=a.212472262158978.53305.138387032900835&type=1

Finally, here’s a video that may have been the highlight of the day, at least to the kids. Not to reveal too much, but just imagine two things: David Rogers and Slime! Check it out!

GROW: Planning Session Is Tomorrow!

-submitted by Travis Flora

Ever feel like your thoughts and suggestions don’t count? One thing I’ve learned since my family and I moved to Holly Hill about a year and a half ago is that’s not the case here! That’s why I hope everyone can come out at least for a while and take part in the Planning Session scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. tomorrow (November 5) and go through around noon. Not every congregation offers this opportunity to its members. I know you have lots of ideas on ways we can either improve on what we’re already doing, or maybe suggest a new way to better serve our community and, in the process, serve Christ.

We’re going to start the morning with a light breakfast and prayer, then divide up into teams to evaluate all the programs and service areas at Holly Hill. You’ll get to work with the deacons in charge of their assigned areas, as well as interact with the elders and each other. All the data from tomorrow’s Planning Session will be collected and summarized and given to the congregation.

It’s not too late to get involved! Even if you haven’t signed up yet, you can still take part. Just show up at the building at 8 a.m. and be ready to spend time with your brothers and sisters in Christ as we strive to find better ways to serve God.

Hope to see everyone there!

In case you’re wondering, here is a list of the various areas and the deacons/elders that will be leading the discussion:

Special Projects/Communcation/Community Events:  Lee Wise, Ray Bowman, Travis Flora
Helping Hands:  Todd Best and Kenneth Drake
Youth:  David Rogers
Evangelism/Visitation:  Bryan Dill and Gregg Stratton
Missions/ Benevolence:  Greg Pauley
Finance and Building and Grounds:  Rob Catron, Lonnie Trent, Phil Wilkins

Grow:  In 2 Peter 1:5-8, the Apostle Peter illustrates that just being “in Christ” is not enough, we need to grow. Opportunities for growing in our relationship with Christ abound at Holly Hill. These blogs will highlight these opportunities, or may just illustrate, teach or inspire us as we grow in knowledge, faith and love of God.


GROW: Men’s Retreat

by Tom Owens

From the time we get in our vehicles to go to the retreat until we get back to Frankfort, you have a chance to grow. I got to know Joue Maglemot better riding to and from the retreat. A lot of the men know each other before the trip but when you spend a weekend with them, like it or not, you know them better when you leave.

 

We studied God’s word together, ate together and played together. The more Christians are together the more you bond and become one in Christ. Our lessons were on being the Salt and Light to our families, church and communities. We were taught by someone that none of us see on a daily basis so we get a different view of the subject, therefore we grow in knowledge.

 

We also played games as teams so we learned to work together to an end. In doing this we learn to help each other in our Christian lives to an end, Heaven.

 

The experience of the Men’s Retreat is a growing experience. Everything from the wooded camp, learning sessions, team playing and even playing four square with guys from 14 to 57 years old is a growing experience.

 

If you’re not taking advantage of this opportunity to be with men of Holly Hill C of C, you need to sign up to go next year and see for yourself. You won’t regret it.

 


REACH: Pack the Pulpit Items Needed This Sunday

Just a reminder to bring your Pack the Pulpit items THIS SUNDAY, November 6. Just place the items on the pulpit when you arrive. We all know the economy is having a big impact on a lot of lives, so your items are needed more this year than ever before! Also, be sure to give Todd Best any names of people who would benefit from a food box this Christmas. Let’s help REACH as many of our neighbors as possible this year!

 REACH is the focus of our midweek blog. Christ’s Great Commission is for His people to “go” into the world, spreading His gospel. This includes all aspects of the good news, both teaching the Word, as well as showing the benevolence toward others that Christ showed through His living example. These blogs will highlight opportunities at Holly Hill for us to REACH into the world around us and make a difference for Christ.


CONNECT: Our New TV Ad

-submitted by Travis Flora

Our first TV ad using our Connect. Reach. Grow. theme goes into use this week. We showed a sneak peak of it after morning worship services yesterday, but as promised, here it is again on our YouTube channel. Be sure to share the link with all your friends and be prepared to talk about what CONNECT means. We look forward to building stronger relationships with each other as we strive to serve God through Christ. A special thanks to David Rogers for creating the ad and Bryan Dill for doing an excellent job as our spokesman! For those interested, the TV ad will be shown in Frankfort Plant Board on Lifetime, USA, TBS and HGTV, at least for now. We may switch that up a little in a few weeks.

CONNECT: Fall Festival This Saturday!

-submitted by Amber Collins

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to be a part of the Fall Festival we are having for the younger members of Holly Hill.  We are so blessed to have the opportunity to spread the word of God to so many little ears.  They are precious little angels with a bundle of energy so I figured let’s wear them out with a Fall Festival, ha-ha. 

 We will have games, prizes, and even contests.  I am not going to say who but there will also be someone getting slimed that day, WOO HOO! 

Attention parents:   If the weather permits, make sure you bring a jacket for your kiddo; we will have a bouncy house and pony rides. 

This event is free so pack up the kids and come on out!  It will be held on Saturday, October 29th, from 2-4pm

If you would like to volunteer or need more information please contact me.  Take care of God bless!
