"Then He looked at those seated in a circle around Him and said, 'Here are My mother and My brothers! Whoever does God’s will is My brother and sister and mother.'"
We are a family.
We are not just any family; we are God's family, and in embracing this divine connection, we become family to one another. Our bond is not formed by blood ties, but by something even more profound – the precious sacrifice of Jesus Christ's blood, which has united us as a spiritual family.
Here, at Hillside Church, we cherish this sense of belonging and shared purpose. Together, we navigate life's journey, supporting and caring for each other as a loving and faith-filled family. Join us in celebrating this extraordinary bond that defines who we are, God's family knit together by grace and love.
As Family We Go!
"He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in His arms, He said to them, 'Whoever welcomes one of these little children in My name welcomes Me; and whoever welcomes Me does not welcome Me but the one who sent Me.'”
Jesus teaches us that when we embrace children with open hearts, we are embracing God's presence in our midst. At Hillside Church, we take this teaching to heart and strive to be a community that wholeheartedly celebrates and loves children.
In our eyes, children are not just the future of the church; they are an integral part of our church family today. We understand that nurturing a strong church for tomorrow requires the active involvement of our children today.
We are proud to be a church that genuinely adores and uplifts kids. We acknowledge that kids can bring a bit of mess and noise, but we don't shy away from these beautiful aspects of their presence. Instead, we see it as an opportunity to guide them in the ways of faith and love. It's our heartfelt desire to help them grow in their spiritual journey, guiding them on the path of goodness and grace. So, if you're looking for a church that embraces and invests in the future through our children, you've found your home at Hillside Church.
“One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts”
"Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, with all purity."
1 Timothy 5:1&2
“Tell your sons about it, and let your sons tell their sons, and their sons the next generation”
At Hillside Church, we firmly believe that age is never a barrier to being part of our loving family. Whether you're young or young at heart, you are always welcome here, and your presence is incredibly valuable to us.
We cherish the beautiful tapestry of generations and multi-generations that make up our church family. Age does not define your belonging; it does not determine whether you are a part of this family. As long as we are breathing, we are embraced within the warm embrace of our church family.
We extend an open invitation to everyone, recognizing that each person plays a unique and essential role in our community. You are not just welcome here; you are needed here. Join us, regardless of your age, and together, we will continue to build a thriving and inclusive family where every individual matters.
"Every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom."
The body of Christ is a diverse and beautiful tapestry, composed of people from various backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities. At Hillside Church, we firmly believe that the local church should reflect this rich diversity.
Our identity is rooted in our shared faith in Christ, and this common bond unites us far beyond our differences. We celebrate our unity, which transcends the many facets of our diversity.
Join us in embracing this truth: the church family should be a harmonious blend of individuals, each with a unique story and background, all coming together in the love of Christ. It is this unity amidst diversity that makes our community so vibrant and enriching. Welcome to a church where your unique identity is respected and cherished as part of the greater body of Christ.
We are a family not by blood, but a family that’s been bought by blood.
As family we go!
