Thoughts on immigration

The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” Lev. 19:34

The Passing of Harry Terp

Hill Memorial Baptist Church mourns the passing of Mr. Harry Terp who passed into Eternal Glory the early morning of June 1st. He was 92 years old. Harry and his wife Barbara were long-time stalwart members of Hill Memorial, where they raised five children. They retired to Cape Cod in 1995.

Mr. Terp was predeceased by his wife Barbara, who passed in 2011.

He will be waked this Saturday, June 9th, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 Noon at Doane Beal & Ames, 729 Route 134, South Dennis, MA 02660. Burial will follow immediately, followed by a reception at the home of Nancy’s sister Beverly.

A full memorial service will be held at Hill Memorial Baptist Church in late September (date to be determined).

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to Hill Memorial Baptist Church.

May Harry, his wife Barbara, and all the faithful departed rest in Peace,
and Rise in Glory.

Pastor Greg’s Sabbatical Leave

Pastor Greg will be on Sabbatical Leave from The Hill, starting with the first Sunday in June, through the last Sunday in August. He will return to the pulpit on Sunday, September 2, 2018.

We are pleased to welcome The Rev. Catherine Miller as Sabbatical Pastor. Rev. Catherine comes to The Hill with a strong background in interim ministry. She is already well-known at HMBC, having preached a number of times for us over the past year. She will begin her “Official” ministry at The Hill on Sunday June 24. For the intervening Sundays, we have three different preachers, all of whom are in the TABCOM ordination process. Each will bring a unique voice and perspective to the pulpit.

We look forward to an exciting and uplifting summer at The Hill, and we wish Pastor Greg a refreshing and productive sabbatical!
