Starting on Sunday, September 17, Hill Top United Methodist Church will start their worship service at 10am.
- Bible study has begun a new series on the New Testament books known as the Pastoral Epistles: 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus. These books are short, and we’ll go through them back-to-back: if you’ve never joined in for Bible study before, this is a good and accessible time to give it a try! Reach out to a pastor or Dave Smoyer for help logging into Zoom on Wednesday nights online at 7pm.
- Back-to-school $1 Sale at Hill Top on Saturday, August 19th, from 9am-1pm, will host their New clothes, new shoes, and all sorts of lightly-used goods will be available—almost all of them sold at $1 to help bless our community. Volunteers welcome!
Fairhaven UMC will host Maundy Thursday service at 7pm on Thursday, 4/14. This will be a jazz service, a new thing for us that is going to be a beautiful experience as we recall Christ’s last supper with his disciples and share in Communion.
There will be a cross procession beginning at Hill Top on Good Friday, 4/15, at 2pm. Together with Abiding Missions, we’ll carry a cross up Beltzhoover Avenue toward Grandview, stopping along the way to read Scripture that tells us of Jesus’ passion. It will end at Abiding Missions on Excelsior Street with the stripping of the altar.
Good Friday service will be held at Spencer at 7:30pm. As is our tradition in the Partnership, this will be a Tenebrae service (a service of darkness) that walks through Jesus’ betrayal, journey to the cross, and finally his death. If you’ve never attended before, Tenebrae is an extremely powerful service.
Worship will be preceded by a fish dinner. If you plan to eat, please RSVP to the office at (412) 881-4000 by Wednesday, 4/13.
If you’re at all able, I strongly encourage you to make time for Maundy Thursday and/or Good Friday worship. Easter Sunday has a far deeper feeling of meaning and grace when we have walked with the Lord to the cross first, rather than just coming from the celebration of Palm Sunday the week before. The silence of Good Friday makes Easter’s “he is risen!” all the greater.
Wednesdays 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. from June 14 through August 16
Free meals this summer for anyone 18 and under.
Crafts, games and other activities will be provided along with the meal.
No paperwork required.

Starting at a new time – 7 pm Wednesday Nights
According to Christian tradition, Lent is a time of self-examination and repentance, a season of prayer, fasting, and self-denial, and a moment especially fit for reading and meditating on God’s Holy Word.
This Lent of 2016, our mid-week prayer service at Hill Top UMC (631 E Warrington Ave) is a great way to get into the spirit of this season, with time for quiet prayer and fellowship with other believers.
Each Wednesday at 7 pm in the Hill Top sanctuary, please join us as we journey together towards the cross, where the Lord gave himself up for us all.
