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 Study begins our new study Unshakeable Hope by Max Lucado. Join us September 20 at 7:00 to start your journey with God’s Promises.
“Hope is hard to come by these days. Whether it’s heart disease or cancer, job failure or addiction, natural disasters or family disasters, mass murders or mental illness, there are so many reasons to be overwhelmed. In a world full of instability, we do not need more opinions or hunches; we need the definitive declarations of our mighty and loving God. What is your life built on—the circumstances of life or the promises of God? “
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.
Visitors often say that Hillside is a friendly church. Fellowship with each other is a huge part of our way of making connections with each other.
- Hillside Lit Lovers – a book club venue for those who love to read
- Annual fellowship events: Christmas/New Year’s Dinner, our Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Potluck Breakfast; Pastor Appreciation Dinner, Ash Wednesday Soup Meal, and other events that bring us together throughout the year.
- Monthly, get-to-know-you, gatherings at the parsonage: Pasta with the Pastors, Chili with the Clergy, and more!
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.
