Dear Hilllside family,

Wow, it’s been quite a week… It started last Sunday with our first ever “ultimate” preaching tag team with Pastors Dave, Roger, and Adams (imagine 3 pastors) who shared a memorable message on parenting. The day also included the final night of our incredible spring Alpha initiative on Sunday night – what a run with Youth Alpha, Alpha, and Alpha Marriage! – and the day was also bolstered by news that it was our 2nd strongest Sunday of giving in 2016. As we know, generosity is a sign of a high devotion church and this was important because our giving had dipped a couple times in recent weeks. So big thanks for everyone’s faithfulness which enables our ministry to flourish.

Other wins this week to share with you include:

  • the completion of the brand new 2nd edition of our expanded church photo directory – exciting! On Sunday, be sure to get your new fuller directory ($15 each for those who don’t have one) or the free expanded edition for those who already have the original;
  • hearing the inside scoop on this year’s fun, entertaining program at our upcoming Hillside’s Got Talent on this Sunday night (it’s going to be good!);
  • surpassing the 100+ mark of Hillsiders registered for the Global Leadership Summit for the second year in a row – amazing! (and that number is still growing as the early bird deadline winds down over the next few days, so get registered soon);
  • hosting the first of 2 “All In” membership classes last night – it’s truly so thrilling to be part of a church where people are continuing to take the next steps of believer’s baptism and choosing to become a part of a high devotion church through membership (can’t wait to host the next “All In” class this coming Thurs night – are you able to join us?).

Well, it’s shaping up to be another significant Sunday this weekend. Why so? Because you don’t want to miss the Waumba Land kids who will be lighting up the stage with their voices and smiles and we’ll also be taking a few moments to celebrate this year’s Grad class. Add in some inspiring worship and a timely message about marriage and I believe it will be a very meaningful time. Enjoy the weekend and be sure to join us on Sunday.
