The Next Step is in your hands

1 . Pray

Commit to set aside time every day for a full month to bring this to God. Fast. Ask him to lead you and give you a new level of generosity. If you are married or have children, do this together.

2 . Examine

Assess your financial situation and look at ways you can give sacrificially, whether at once or in installments.

3. Discuss

Dedicate time to speak openly about this with others you trust. A spouse, friend, or financial advisor.

4. Give

Step out in faith and give or pledge.

Picture How Far We’ve Come

  • Imagine 44 years ago when in 1974, three small churches risked leaving the past and launched into the future with a bold vision to do a greater work for God.
  • Here we standpoised for the next 40 years as a leading Acts 2 lighthouse church in the region and knowing that the best days are ahead.
  • Now, it is our time to imagine what more God can do through our continued obedience and trust as the Spirit prompts to create greater capacity for people to come to know Jesus.

Hillside Today

Hillside’s mission is “To honour God by leading people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ”. Our goal is to challenge each person to take steps forward in their spiritual life, regardless of the length of time they have attended church. We believe our church will be healthier and more effective as we take those steps. The Discipleship Diamond helps people to connect, grow and serve as they go ALL IN for Jesus.

The plan that will build stronger community

Hillside is known as a warm, caring and friendly church where community is valued and changed lives matter. It is a safe place for people to find and follow Jesus and get connected with other believers in a growing faith community. Our strong sense of community is a value we will continue to protect and strengthen going forward. We don’t want that to change! We simply want to create the space and opportunity for more people to participate in 52 fantastic Sundays, leverage programs in our premiere family ministries, and actively take next steps in becoming fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ. The building project (estimated at approximately $4 Million) is broken down into two phases. The Imagine campaign goal for phase 1 is $2.5 Million

Our Challenge

Together we are asking every person who calls Hillside ‘my church’ to do three things:

  1. Pray and re-surrender: “God, everything I have comes from you and belongs to you.”
  2. Listen as He speaks: “God, what would you have me do with the resources you’ve provided?”
  3. Obey: “God, yes – I will follow your leading. Plan to express your commitment on February 22, 2015.”

Imagine will challenge us to do something that’s often difficult: sacrifice. It will stretch our faith, but also provide opportunities to see God move and provide in amazing ways. Together we’ll grow – both personally and as a church – beyond what feels safe and familiar, and toward our mission for the next 40 years. Your commitment will enable us to have an even greater impact in our community and around the world, just as the commitment of a small group of people 40 years ago has had an impact on you. Just imagine!
