Oct 4    THU      7:00 PM     Deacons' & Deaconesses' Meeting.  The "board" will be meeting to discuss the ongoing needs of Hilltop Chapel and our community.  We are seeking

Oct 10  WED     7:00 PM     Wednesday Evening Bible Study.  A few weeks ago, we turned our plans toward reaching out from our church to the community.  The most important
                                                 aspect of this is to teach our folks how to, most effectively, express God's love, grace and mercy to all who will listen.  Come on out and join us!
Oct 20   SAT      8:00 AM    Men's Breakfast & Fellowship.  Our men's group is steadily growing and we're looking for some more dedicated Christian men to fill out our ranks.  
                                                 You may be one of them -- so, no time like the present to get started!  And the food and fellowship aren't half bad either.  
                             9:15 AM    Harvest Dinner Work Day.  We always seem to have lots of guests for our Harvest Dinner & Auction, so we want to put our best foot forward.  That's
                                                 where you come in.  If you can spare a few hours this morning to give us a hand sprucing up the campus, you'll be blessed and those who arrive on 
                                                 Sunday will enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Oct 21   SUN   12:15 PM    Harvest Dinner & Auction.  Our annual event to raise money for our missionaries' Christmas gifts is already upon us.  We hope you've been saving your
                                                "special stuff" just to watch it be auctioned off for a very good purpose.  These events are always a lot of fun, the food is terrific, and you might just 
                                                 walk away with one or more treasures to replace the ones you donated.  Hope to see you there.
Oct 27   SAT   2-5:00 PM   Trunk or Treat at Dunlap School.  Hilltop Chapel is sponsoring a spot at this year's event to let folks know who we are and what we are doing just up the
                                                 road from the school.   We're looking for folks to donate candy for the booth and also to get involved by spending some time manning the location.  If
                                                 you're interested, see or call Lee McComb.
Oct 28   SUN     5:30 PM     Supper & A Movie.  If you've been to any of our recent Sunday night gatherings, you've seen a real excitement among the folks.  This month's movie
                                                 should gin up the experience even more.  It's called:  "Apocalypse".

                                                road to the Riffel's and see their immaculate yard and gorgeous views.  The food is always delicious and the company, outstanding.  Come on out and

                                                for those who will be baptized today.  What a great day it will be as we witness folks identifying with Jesus in believers' baptism.
Sept 11  TUE     6:30 PM   Evangel Home Banquet at Tornino's Banquet Center in Fresno.  This banquet is so special in that we get to see the fruit of diligent labor poured into
                                                the lives of women and children from the mean streets of Fresno.  It will also be the last banquet with Gerre Brenneman as Executive Director of Evangel
                                                Home.  Those of you who have met Gerre over the years, know how much time and effort she has lovingly given to the home in the past 30 years.  Come
                                                join us as we celebrate her life and ministry.   See Linda Riffel for further details.

                                               helping with the cooking and we are excited to see them taking an active roll in the work of the church.  Come on out and bring a friend.
JUST A REMINDER            OCTOBER 21, 2018 is the date for our Harvest Dinner and Auction.  Start putting together your auction items so that by the time the day arrives you'll
