PLAN YOUR SUNDAY MORNING VISIT

We'd love to meet you! Read below for more information, and reach out if you have further questions.

When And Where Are Services?

This summer (May 26-September 1), we offer one service at 10:00A on Sunday mornings. Seating is available in our Worship Center, with an alternate viewing space on our front lawn, where the service is streamed onto a large outdoor screen. Additional seating  is also available in our cafeteria.

We are located at 4300 W. 98th Street in Bloomington—two blocks west of France Ave. on 98th Street in Bloomington, MN (top of the hill and on the same side of 98th St. as Normandale Community College).

Our weekly services are also offered online. They are streamed through our websiteYouTube, and Facebook. They are also available for viewing the rest of that day.

Where Do I Start?
Where Do I Start?

Guest parking is available in the front of the building campus (the south lot), which is also where our main entrance is located—underneath the canopy with the cross on top. (Parking is also available in the back lot, which may be easier for elderly and families with young children. There is handicapped parking in both the front and back of our building). Once inside the commons area, greeters will welcome you, direct you, and assist with any questions you may have.

If you’d like, stop by the ministry counter before or after the service to grab a cup of coffee, and hang out to chat on the front lawn or in our cafeteria. This is also a great place to meet others!

What To Expect
What To Expect

Our services are usually around 75 minutes long. We begin with a time of worship through music. Our music is relevant to our culture, but remembers our legacy through a variety of styles, all seeking to honor Christ in a way that draws us into His presence. Our pastor then preaches a sermon, using the Bible and explains how we can apply it to daily life. Typically we use an expository style, which means an in-depth look at specific passages of Scripture. (You can watch videos of archived sermons here). Communion, faith stories, and other elements are often a part of our worship services as well. If you’re new, we invite you to complete an “I’m New Here” card with some basic information so that we can email you some information that may be relevant to you. You’ll also have an opportunity to submit a prayer request for our team to pray for during the service. The congregation will also be informed about opportunities to give (though Hillside will never pressure visitors to give, as we believe worship through giving is for regular attenders and members).

Immediately following the service, men and women will be at the front of the worship center and available to pray with you regarding personal needs or those of your loved ones. They would be privileged to seek God with you!

After the service, be sure to stop by the “I’m New Here” counter in the hallway outside the worship center. We’d love to say hello and answer any questions you may have.

What About My Kids & Teens?

Birth-age 3: Childcare is available during the entire service.

Preschool (age 4-entering Kindergarten): Begin the service worshiping with their families, then will be invited to go to their class midway through the service.

Entering grade 1 and older: Remain with their families during the entire service.

How Do I Get Connected?

“Connecting” is an important part of our mission at Hillside, so we have many opportunities for people to get involved and meet others. We periodically offer a New Attender’s Lunch for those who are interested in learning more about Hillside, as well as the Hillside Story—a 2-hour class that dives a bit deeper into explaining who we are. Information about upcoming opportunities for newcomers can be found at the bottom of this page.

Our midweek connecting point, Wednesday Connect, happens each Wednesday night between September-April and is an evening of activities for all ages.

Small Groups are a core part of what we do here, and are a great opportunity to get to know other people at Hillside as you grow and serve together. We also offer a variety of other ministries and Bible studies for adults and families of all ages and stages.

We strongly encourage you to complete an I’m New Here card when you visit so that we can know how to get in touch with you. We also invite you to download Hillside’s ChurchCenter app, which is a great way to connect and stay on top of all that is happening at Hillside.
