The first AWANA meeting of the New Year is

This is the first meeting of the board for the New
Year, but the last meeting for some of our board members. We wish to
thank all of those who have served the church so diligently in 2017 and
look forward to 2018 with eager anticipation. We covet your prayers as we
tackle lots of projects on the campus of Hilltop Chapel as well as the ongoing
work of reaching the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Jan. 20 SAT 8:00 AM Men’s Breakfast and Fellowship.
We are looking forward to getting a greater
percentage of the men of the church out to our, once a month, meetings and
encourage all the men to take a greater role in the work of the church. We
know Jesus is coming again soon and we need our men to be spiritual
leaders, both at Hilltop Chapel and at home!
Jan. 28 SUN 1:00 PM Annual Church Business Meeting & Election.
We look forward to an
exciting year as we forge ahead into 2018! We’re thankful for an active and
vibrant membership and eagerly anticipate working with those whom God
is calling into service for Him this year. Be in prayer for this meeting!
We have been contemplating adding another missionary outreach to our group for
2018. It’s a big step for our congregation and we want to be obedient to the Lord’s leading.
Two groups are being considered that we will offer up for consideration at our upcoming
annual meeting: The Arancibia Family in Cochabamba, Bolivia and Asian Partners in
Kalimantan, Borneo. The Arancibia’s (Osvaldo, Timara, Jaran (7) and Zola (5), have been
with us as guest speakers a couple of times in the past. They are starting their 4th year in
Bolivia as Guesthouse operators for SIM International Ministries, housing ministry groups
from all over the globe and also operating church services and seminars for church planters.
Asian Partners, (founded by “Borneo” Bob Williams in 1938), has been planting native
churches (300+) all over Indonesia. They also operate Christian elementary, middle and high schools in Kalimantan, along with a fully accredited university and seminary. And,
they are now sending missionaries into India!
