Studying what God is saying in His Word is becoming a growing part of the learning and growth for the adult community of Hillside Church. A variety of opportunities for this growth are available.
Sunday High School and Adult Education (Sundays, 9:30-10:30 a.m.)
Join us starting September 10 for our new Sunday study with Aaron and Shara Frankenfeld ~ Worship, Old and New. “Especially significant is a reexamination of the actual practice of worship that goes beyond the merely academic to provide a practical perspective through the eyes of the worship leader and worshipers. Well-versed in the best of both past and present, Worship Old and New is a scholarly, up-to-date, and thought-provoking resource…” (review on GoodReads) Insight, great questions, and sometimes donuts!
Wednesdays in the Word with Pastor Pat (7-8:30 PM)
Beginning on October 18 Pastor Pat will lead a DVD book study The Real God authored by Pastor Chip Ingram. Join us for a look at how God wants us to know Him through specific references from scripture. “This study will look at seven attributes of God: his goodness, sovereignty, holiness, wisdom, justice, love, and faithfulness. Readers will see God in a whole new light and discover that our view of God impacts every decision in our lives. It will change the way we pray, the way we live, and the way we think about the world around us.” (book notes from Amazon)
See you there! Wednesdays beginning at 7:00 p.m. We’ll supply Bibles and study guides if you don’t have one. 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.
