You are invited to dinner on Sunday, September 13th at Christian Miller’s home. We are looking for volunteers for Core Fellowship, and we will talk about the various ways we need help for the following levels:

Level 1

People who are committed to showing up most nights – it is very helpful to have Bible study members who are committed to coming to Core as we build relationships with our brothers and sisters.

Level 2

People who are willing to serve in ways, such as the following:

  • Help plan, host or attend events like game nights, movie nights, hiking, volleyball, beach trips etc.
  • Help on the sound team.
  • Help Emcee.
  • Serve on the hospitality team (greeting, helping organize snacks etc.).
  • Publicity.

Level 3

This is the most rewarding level and gives you an opportunity to lead, but may take a bit more of your time. We need leaders in all areas, including:

  • Table leaders.
  • Event Planning.
  • Serving on the Core Team to help plan or lead people on Level 2.

Dinner and a Seminar at Church on the Hill

Click here to register for this event:

You are invited to a complimentary evening with dinner and a seminar Sunday June 7th at 5:30. Dr. David Eckman, the Senior Lecturer of Becoming What God Intended Ministries, will share truths that will completely change your perspective on yourself and others:

What is the Purpose of Your Existence? 
Why the Trinity Needs You

What? A two-hour seminar by Dr. Eckman hosted by Core Fellowship from Church on the Hill. We will serve you a complimentary dinner of lasagna, salad, bread and refreshments. Please sign up so we know how much to cook.

This is a dinner and seminar for you to enjoy. Dr. Eckman will briefly discuss his ministry which is helping train Christian leaders and pastors internationally by providing them with powerful, Christ centered training tools – donations are appreciated but please only contribute if you feel led.

When? Sunday June 7th from 5:30 -8:30 PM (seminar starts at 6:30 PM)

Where? Church on the Hill

Cost? Free! – Please sign up by obtaining a ticket Sunday at Church on the Hill or by registering on line at:

Details of the seminar: Many individuals in this world live lives of quiet desperation. Sometimes Christians feel uncomfortably out of place in this world, but they may also feel insignificant in God’s plan. “When we speak of being significant,” says Dr. Eckman, “we are not talking about being proud, but being Biblical. You are significant!” We invite you to experience truths that transform. Here are some of the topics for the evening, covering “What is the Purpose of Your Existence?”

1) Why you are wanted.

2) The Trinity has a great purpose for you.

3) You answer the question of the ages.

4) It’s much less about what you do than WHO you are to God the Father.

Join us for dinner on the night of the movie! Meet at 6:15 at the Oakridge Mall’s food court!
Century 20 Oakridge
925 Blossom Hill Rd, San Jose, CA, US, 95123

Please join us for a great Christian movie called “Matter of Faith“.  My name is Bill Hamilton and I am the lead contact in the Bay Area for Christiano Films, and working with the movie producer Rich Christiano to promote “A Matter of Faith“.   We are very excited to bring this thought provoking film to our community.  

Tickets can be bought starting May 20th and there needs to be at least 150 tickets purchased by June 16th for this screening to take placeTickets can only be purchased on line through TUGG at this link:

ONLY, after the 150 minimum tickets are reached, then your credit card will be charged.  The movie will be shown Tuesday, June 23 at 7:30pm at Century 20 Oakridge Mall in San Jose.  Feel free to contact myself or Clyde Beck ( if you have any questions.  This will be a very good film to show to any student, parent and people who need a inspiring spark in their spiritual life.  Please share this with others who you think may be interested. 


A Christian girl, Rachel Whitaker (Jordan Trovillion) goes off to college for her freshman year and begins to be influenced by her popular Biology professor (Harry Anderson) who teaches that evolution is the answer to the origins of life. When Rachel’s father, Stephen Whitaker (Jay Pickett) senses something changing with his daughter, he begins to examine the situation and what he discovers catches him completely off guard.

Now very concerned about Rachel drifting away from her Christian faith, he tries to do something about it!

Comments from church leaders who have endorsed the film:

“A Matter of Faith has a message that is highly relevant and desperately needed for America today. AIG doesn’t endorse many movies, even those that are supposedly “Christian” based. We are fully behind A Matter of Faith as it defends the authority of the Bible beginning in Genesis.” –Ken Ham, Answers In Genesis

“A clash of worldviews puts a spotlight on the creation-evolution debate in this captivating film. A committed Christian dad, a doubting daughter, and a charismatic liberal professor stir up a lot of tension and intrigue on campus. It has solid Biblical principles and a gripping plot. Kudos to the Christianos for another outstanding family-friendly film..” –Tim Wildmon, President, American Family Association

“A great movie. Heart-warming, educational, God-honoring, and timely.” –Ray Comfort, Living Waters Ministries

“What a wonderful movie! Well done! My wife & I were moved by the story, and the Gospel truths and message delivered in the film.” –Pastor Albert Feliciano, Middletown, NY

“I just saw the movie and it is great!!! Thanks for making a good quality movie and the gospel being clear. I also love the creativity in the story line.” –Pastor Dennis Sherman, Irvine Community Church, Irvine, CA

“A Matter of Faith is very powerful. The last 20 minutes was so well said and put in a clear wonderful perspective. It’s truly intriguing!” –Mark Belin, CEO/Creative, Be Design, Los Angeles, CA

Viewer comments from theaters:

From Rochester, NY  
“Great movie.  Very, very well done.  There were around 50 people at the Saturday night show.  At the end, a nice round of applause. Been a long time since I have been in a theater where the crowd cheered at the end.  We had three ladies in our group and two were
crying at the end.  Everyone loved it.”
–John P. Wheeler, Bank Branch Manager  
From Tuscaloosa, AL
“I am writing to thank you for sponsoring the movie, “A Matter of Faith”, that was brought to the Cobb Theater this past weekend.  I am the assistant administrator at North River Christian Academy – on McFarland Blvd. in Tuscaloosa.  We took a group of 88 of our high school students to see this movie on Friday afternoon.  Their response to this movie was overwhelmingly positive!  It made a difference in the lives of our students!”
From Ft. Wayne, IN
​ “Very emotional. My daughter had tears when we left. It was amazing. I needed to hear what they spoke about because honestly, it helped me understand more about why I sometimes have questions and it felt like they answered what I questioned.
It helped me make sense of things.”
From our rep in Mentor, OH
“After the Friday 7:00 PM show I received a phone call from the Pastor Ted Davis of our church.  Ted and his wife Jody had brought two women with them to see the movie.  On their way home one of the women was so moved by the content and message of the movie that she made a decision to accept Christ as her Lord and Savior!!”
From Grand Rapids, MI 
“I just wanted to let you know that my students really enjoyed the movie. More importantly, the message was so clear and really made them think!  It became a source of discussion and learning ALL weekend at our retreat.  They kept on talking about addition or submission as well as a huge element on creation.  What a great jump off point for our students! I pray the movie continues to reach many, many more people.” –Betsy Marvin,  Director of Family Ministry, Cornerstone Church
