Hey Hillsiders,

 

A big Sunday is coming this weekend… It will be a momentous wrap up to what’s been an absolutely amazing venture through The Story. Looking back, I can’t recall a time in our history when we’ve had so many people including kids, teens, young adults, couples, singles and seniors meaningfully engaged in God’s Word for such a lengthy period of time (31 weeks).  Way to go everyone!

 

Our team has an inspiring service planned… Powerful music and relevant teaching from Pastor Dave will powerfully focus our hearts and minds on heaven.  What a topic!!! So, if you’re lower story (or the lower story of someone you love) is filled these days with worry, fear, disappointment, sickness, pain, regret, brokenness, or struggle be assured that in Christ hope is always a reality. And that the best is yet to come! This, and so much more, is ours to discover as we dive into week 31 and learn more about what the Bible says regarding “The End of Time”.

 

In addition, we’ll be celebrating communion and welcoming the 25 newest members into our Hillside family. How exciting to see our church continue to grow as people of all ages and walks of life take next steps with Jesus and in vital community with us at Hillside.

Thankfully, we are a church on the move. Speaking of which, I know some of you are wondering about the Imagine project. Good news… I’m thrilled to let you know that substantial progress is being made and so stay tuned about the announcement of a special congregational meeting in the very near future. Again, the expansion project has been delayed by a few weeks but that’s it – “a delay” not a cancellation! There is every indication that, Lord willing, we should be breaking ground very soon. So, stay tuned and keep praying…

 

Friends, that’s it for now. I hope you enjoy this nice weekend and that you plan to join us for 1 of our 3 fantastic services at 9am, 11am, and 1pm on Sunday.  Exciting times continue!

 

Blessings,

 

Pastor Jerry
