We are continuing to process the wonderful work done at the Session Retreat in January. At the February meeting of the Session, we voted to replace the Evangelism & Communication ministry team with
2 new ministry teams
- Communication & Technology
- Visitor & New Member Nurture
Going back to the results of College Hill’s
2011 Vision Study
, we’ve recognized the importance of keeping updated with the rapidly changing world of social media and modes of communication. We’ve also recognized the need to mentor visitors through the process of deciding to become members of the congregation, and help them connect with others and with the life and ministry of the church.
We need your help!
If you have skills and desire in either of these two crucial areas of ministry, please speak with me, or contact the moderator of the team.

Adult Church School Class
The Book of Acts
and Christian Beginnings
Sundays at 9:30 am
What is the truth about our Christian Beginnings?
• Is Acts a reliable historical source for the birth and early years of the church?
Join us as we continue to read and discuss the book of Acts, using the Acts Seminar Report by the Westar Fellows (who brought us the Jesus Seminary), along with other sources.
Help us to discern the core values of Act's visionary portrait of Christian community and how they may apply to our own faith community today.
This series of classes is being led by Bert Woodall, with John Gammie.
The Book of Acts
was long thought to be a first-century document, and its author Luke - a disciple of Paul - an eyewitness or acquaintance of eyewitnesses.
It was considered history, pure and simple
But Westar's Acts Seminar concluded that
Acts is from the second century, a conclusion that directly challenges the view of Acts as history and raises a host of new questions, addressed in this final report of the Acts Seminar.
