Give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:18
Advent begins this Sunday | Gather with us at 9 or 10:30 AM in the sanctuary or online for the first of four Sundays centered around God's eternal messages of hope, peace, joy and love. Together, we'll reconnect with rest, less, space, and grace during this season of anticipation.
Preparing for Advent:
Advent is almost here! We would love your help to make Hillcrest ready for the celebration of the birth of Christ. Join us on Tuesday, November 30 from 10 AM to 1 PM when we'll deck the halls together! Sign-up here...
DIY Advent Wreath-making for Women | Join us on Wednesday, December 1 from 7 to 8:30 PM for a light meal and create an Advent wreath while we discuss ways to slow down during the Christmas season. Sign up here by November 30.
Plan now to attend a Brief Congregational Meeting on December 5 | Please stay for a member vote in the sanctuary after each service as we look to fill spots on the governance board and the nominating team. Sample ballot here.

Goodbye and Group Gift for Nicole Guthrie
To recognize and thank Nicole for her commitment and service to Hillcrest, we will provide an opportunity for you to say goodbye on Sunday, December 19. We have also set up a GoFundMe account to collect funds for a group gift. If you would like to send a check instead, make it out to Nicole Guthrie (not Hillcrest) and mail it to Hillcrest Covenant Church, 8801 Nall Avenue, Prairie Village, KS 66207 or place it in the drop box on Sundays.
