Dear Hillside Family,

With a new year comes the opportunity for a fresh start and new beginnings…

To help us all start the year strong, why not join us this Sunday for the launch of our new “Stronger” series?!!!  In Cor. 13:13 the Apostle Paul reminds us about what’s most important in life when he says, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love”.  Over the next 3 Sundays Pastor Roger, Pastor Dave, and I will share some practical steps on how to get stronger in each of these 3 key vital areas (faith, hope, and love). 

This Sunday I’ll be sharing a message on “Stronger Faith” and we’re also looking forward to more God exalting worship, communion, and welcoming the newest members into our Hillside family. So, if you’re faith has been lagging and needs a boost, I believe you’ll be strengthened by being with us on Sunday. 

Friends, it’s so exciting to be part of a church that is continually moving forward. In this regard, one of the really exciting developments in our ministry will take place this coming Tues. Night, Jan. 12, at 7pm with the special congregational meeting for the calling of Pastor Adams to serve full-time as our Pastor of Young Adults & Communications.  Very exciting! We’re so grateful for Pastor Adams and his wife Kaity and I’m sure you’ll want to join us for this very important opportunity to show your support and encouragement to them as they take this next step with us. Doors open at 6:30pm with light refreshments and the meeting gets underway at 7pm. Hope you can make it!

Thanks again for the privilege and joy of serving with you as we begin this Grand Opening year together. Let’s continue to be prayerfully expectant about all that God has in store for us in this new year. Best days ahead!


Pastor Jerry
