Using engaging scenes from the film, paired with relevant Scripture, these resources are an invitation to experience the ultimate truth about love, loss, and forgiveness. Topics are: Week 1: “Where Is God When I Need Him Most?”, Week 2: “How Does God See Me?”, Week 3: “Why Are You Doing This to Me?”, Week 4: “How Can I Know the Heart of the Father?”, Week 5: “So You Just Let Him Get Away With It?”Contact our Church Administrator for the latest info about this class.

Men’s Group 1st and 3rd Thursdays (7-8:30 PM)
This group is open to all men. We will meet in the upstairs meeting room at the back of the sanctuary. New members are always welcome and can join us at any time. See Pastor Pat for more information.
Women’s Evening Study (Sisters in Christ) 1st and 3rd Thursdays (7-8:30 PM)
Sisters will begin this year’s new study The Sacred Echo using a book authored by Margaret Feinberg beginning October 19. Come join in and learn more about how our God is seeking to reach you. “When God really wants to get your attention, he doesn’t just say something once. He echoes. He speaks through a Sunday sermon, a chance conversation with a friend the next day, even a random email. The same theme, idea, impression, or lesson will repeat itself in surprising and unexpected ways until you realize that maybe, just maybe, God is at work.” Books have been ordered!
Meaningful fellowship and learning with women who seek understanding through God’s Word. The group is open to all women. New members are always welcome and can join us at any time. Contact Suzanne Goff for the details.

Hillside has for years had a reputation of working hard to serve others. Building projects, repairs, quarterly grounds clean up, being a part of our praise and worship team, helping at fellowship dinners, serving in areas of expertise (finance, technology, and public relations), and our food pantry have continued to reveal the heart of Hillside Church and those who want to serve God through service to others.
