Dear Hillside Family,

Last Sunday was truly memorable as we launched our final message series in our current auditorium and also enjoyed a few blasts from the past. While last week included a few songs from the 70s, this week we’ll move into the 80s. Should be fun!

In changing times, we are committed to being a culturally relevant church that remains deeply rooted in Jesus Christ. When the Apostle Paul wrote the Book of Colossians he wanted the church to know that Jesus is unlike any other person in human history – ever! It’s all about Jesus. And our faith, hope, and confidence is in Him! More about this in Sunday’s message, “Rooted in the Incomparable Christ”.

Friends, the countdown is on… With only 6 weeks to go until our first service in the new auditorium, there is so much our team wants to share with you. That’s why I’ve got a special invitation for you!

I’m asking you now to “save the date” for a special All In “Dessert Gathering” on Anniversary Sunday, Feb. 21, 6:00-7:30pm. Just over 2 weeks away, you’ll hear more about this exciting event for our whole church family when you’re here on Sunday. In the meantime, be thinking about your favorite dessert to share with your church family as we gather for this fun occasion in our new auditorium. 

I’m also thrilled to report that this year’s “Better Man” Winter Getaway (coming soon on Feb. 19-20) will be our largest getaway yet! Isn’t that fantastic?!!!  Due to the strong interest in this event with over 100+ guys now registered, our men’s lead team has decided to extend the early bird registration deadline to this Sunday, Feb. 7th.  No man left behind! So, if you haven’t registered yet, you should act now. The early bird rate is $85. After Sunday, it increases to $100. Interested? Here’s the link to register or you can stop by the Band of Brothers table in the lobby on Sunday.

That’s it for now. Have a wonderful weekend, stay safe, and I hope to see you on Sunday. Best days ahead!
