Hey Hillside Family,


I’m pretty stoked about tomorrow. On the heels of a really powerful Sunday last week (this place was buzzing!), we’re looking forward to yet another fantastic Sunday. Inspiring worship, incredible baptisms, warm fellowship, and more transformational teaching from the life of Paul await you. Sound inviting? Hope you’re able to join us – you’ll be so glad you did!


In preparing for tomorrow’s message, I was deeply stirred this week by Paul’s final words in his final days to his young ministry apprentice, Timothy. He said to him: “Preach the Word of God urgently at all times, whenever you get the chance” (2 Tim. 4:2). Paul realized the stakes are sky high and that’s why he always spoke with a keen sense of urgency. I’m fired up about this opportunity to envision all of us to a life that really matters. Isn’t that what we all want? And isn’t that the kind of life that adds value to others and truly honors God? Together, we’ll explore some of the deeper, more important questions about life and how to live for a legacy that lasts. Come expectantly… This is week 30 with only 1 more week to go in The Story.


In closing, this Sunday is also your final opportunity to get your photo taken for our new church photo directory. I’m thankful for the strong sense of community we enjoy at Hillside, but we can’t take it for granted. That’s why as a growing church we want to maximize this opportunity to get to know each other better. Our directory team has identified that we are still missing some of you. But it’s not too late!  SUNDAY is our final day. The ask? Just show up between 9:00-10:45am and 12:15-3:00pm in the Prayer Room where Holly Howe and Randi Hayes will take care of you.  Or email Randi at hbc15photos@gmail.com for a specific time slot. Deal?!! We want everyone to be “All in”.


See you soon.
