They will know we are Christians by our love!
St. John-Hill UCC began its ministry to the folks of the Oley Valley over 250 years ago when it became apparent that a need for a worship space for the local farmers needed to be filled. Since then, Hill Church has served the communities of Bechtelsville, Boyertown, and the Oley Valley faithfully through love and respect for our Lord, Jesus Christ. Our motto states, “They will know we are Christians by our love!”
Hill Church has been the meeting place for many folks through the years and continues to serve as the place where fellowship, faith, and love can be seen in all that we do. This year our Mission Team traveled to Crisfield, Maryland to help with repairs caused by Super Storm Sandy. In recent years, we have also traveled to Mississippi and Kentucky to help recovery efforts from Hurricanes. We love to serve others and provide assistance to those who are in need.
Beyond missions, we at Hill Church also love to eat. We hold several community suppers each year to feed the community and provide a place of fellowship. In May, we have our annual Ham Supper not to be outdone by our Buckwheat and Sausage supper in October and our annual Turkey Supper in November! All of these dinners are prepared and served by our members in our “eats house” or dining hall.
Our youth family is very active. Vacation Bible School week is in June each year. Our youth love to also spread the Good News of the Gospel through service and fellowship, and we meet the second and fourth Monday of the month in our Sunday school room.
We recently celebrated the successful completion of the search for a new pastor and welcomed Rev. Christian Creyer into our family. Join us on Sunday mornings at 8:30 am for our Sunday school for all ages and our regular worship at 9:30 am.
