What to expect


Service Times

Sundays at 9:00 and 10:45


What to Wear

At Hillside we invite you to "come as you are" to our Sunday services.  Wear whatever you feel comfortable in, whether that be jeans and a t-shirt or a suit or a dress.

What to bring

Yourself and your family!  If you have a Bible and a notebook we encourage you to bring those along as well.


Which Service Should I go to?

Each Sunday we have three services, one at 9:00 and two at 10:45.  Our Spanish service, Iglesia Libre en Cristo meets in the Fellowship Hall at 10:45.

Our 9:00 service has a quieter, more intimate feel.

Our 10:45 service has a louder, more contemporary feel.

Where to Go

Once you pull in off Hillsdale head straight up through the parking lots to the visitor parking area at the top!  You'll be a few steps from the front doors where our greeters at the Welcome Center will connect with you.


What is the service like?

Expect to hear biblical, exegetical teaching aimed at equipping our congregation to follow Jesus more fully.  We'll sing a couple songs of worship, hear one of our pastors teach, and spend time in prayer together.  The first Sunday of the month we participate in communion together.


Want to let us know you'll be coming?


Doesn't it feel good to feel known?  We'd like to get to know you, and you can help us out by letting us know that you'll be here.  Don't worry, it's not a commitment or a have-to, just a little way for us to be ready to get to know you and welcome you to Hillside!
