More Connections
by Tom Goodman
September 28, 2011

Take advantage of all the ways you can "connect" to your Hillcrest Family and to your community!  Some of the following notes will be new to you, and some will be reminders.

Connection Countdown.  As a way to prepare for Connection Sunday, we're setting aside this Sunday, October 2, as "Connection Countdown."  Jon Randles will be speaking and the Chris Clayton Band will lead worship.  We'll have a special evening session as well as a morning session this day.

Minute-To-Win-It: When Generations Connect.  This will be a fun way for our multigenerational church to interact!  At 5:30pm this Sunday, October 2, join us in the MPC for BBQ sandwiches and a Minute-to-Win-It competition between the generations.  We're asking every Sunday School class and Common Ground group to put forth their "champion" for this great contest!  After the fun, we'll go into the auditorium where the  Chris Clayton Band will lead us in worship and Jon Randles will challenge us.

Greeters and Cookie Callers Needed!  On Connection Sunday, October 16, we need lots of greeters to welcome people into the service, and we need lots of volunteers to deliver cookies to those who visit.  The cookie delivery will take you a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon.  Contact Herb Ingram right away at 345-3771 or

Golf Tournament.  Our "Second-Half Ministry" is sponsoring a great way to connect by way of, um, "links"!  Enlist a friend, pay your green fees by no later than Wednesday, October 12, and join us at 1:00pm on Saturday, October 22.  You can register online by clicking here.

Connect with Your Hillcrest Family on Facebook.  One of the easiest ways to keep up with your Hillcrest Family is by clicking the "Like" button on the Hillcrest page on Facebook.  This will add updates from the Hillcrest page to your news feed.  In the last few weeks those who have "liked" the Hillcrest Facebook page have been able to view photos of our Anderson football watermelon treat, Kits for Kids packing party, Club 56, and the Ministry Fair.  They've also viewed a link to the Statesman story of our 9-year-old Cash Robinson, updates on our Connection Campaign, and notices about critical things to pray for.  Go to the Hillcrest page on Facebook and "Like" us!


Beacon Articles Available Online:  The staff newsletters that appear each week in the Beacon are also available on our website.  You can find them here.
