Hey Hillsiders,

The wait is over and it’s time to cut the ribbon on our new facilities. Imagine! Yes, this Sunday will be the official Grand Opening our new auditorium. How exciting is that… Our team did an initial walk through of the service last night and it’s going to be a very memorable celebration. Can’t wait!

To further assist, here are 4 things you need to know for this Sunday.

  1. Attend either service. Just like every Sunday, we will be providing 2 identical services on Sunday. Thus, you won’t miss anything by attending one service or the other.
  1. Be encouraged to invite someone to attend with you. This Sunday is a great opportunity to make an easy ask to your friends. And a nice way to give them a taste of the vision, heartbeat, and worship we enjoy at Hillside.
  1. Consider a special gift to the “Nemo Foundation” (Irishtown community) to honour the legacy of Janiva Willis. Simply mark your gift “Nemo” on your envelope and/or you can make a donation if you like at the coffee center when you get your free coffee this week. As a community of blessing, our desire is to bless a local charity on this occasion and so we felt led to choose this one.
  1. If you’re a parent, know that your child is going to have a really great time on Sunday. Let’s just say they will be extra glad to go to Waumba Land, KidZone, and the Vibe this week. Our Grand Opening is a celebration for all of us so the kids will also be enjoying this special day.

That’s it for now. Enjoy the weekend and let’s all come prayed up with joyful, expectant hearts as we pour out our collective praise to our amazing God on Sunday. Best days ahead!
