At Hillside, we want to help you follow Jesus in all aspects of your life. One of the core ways we do that is through Small Groups—groups of 5—12 people who meet regularly to connect, grow, and serve together. We would love to help you find a group that’s right for you!

TOWN HALL MEETING: Tuesday, February 27, 6:30P. Join the Elder Team for this meeting, when they will share about items they have recently been discussing and will answer questions from the Hillside family about specific topics.  Topics to be discussed: Church planting, UCA, elder roles, elder nomination process and on-boarding, building plan/foot traffic, and review of ministry requests. If you have questions about these specific topics, email them here.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED ON EASTER SUNDAY: This year, Easter is on March 31. We will be offering three identical services at 8:00, 9:30, & 11:00A, with childcare available for birth-grade 4. We need an extra boost of volunteers (in several different areas, not just kids ministry) to help us welcome as many people as possible that morning. Would you consider volunteering during a service?  Sign up on the Church Center App or email Ruth Whipple.

NEW! SERVE ON OUR VISITATION MINISTRY TEAM: We are forming a team of adults who would be willing to visit and check in with Hillside senior adults who are sick, recovering from a surgery or home bound due to health issues. Would you be able to serve in this way? Sign up at hillsidemn.org/serve. 

VBS: SAVE THE DATES! Monday-Thurs, July 15-18, 9:00A-12:00P. For kids age 4—entering grade 5. More information to come.
