Celebrating Our Story: Saturday, November 16th @ 6:30pm
Join the HillSong Church family on Saturday, November 16, 2019, at 6:30PM. As we anticipate a new season in our church’s life, we want to celebrate the way God has written our story thus far. We’ll hear testimonies of what God has done. We’ll rejoice in the way God is working through our church right now. And we’ll pray for our hopes for the future. 

At the end of the service, we will pass out a prayer guide to invite you, the church family, to pray daily and specifically from November 16 to December 15, the day we launch as “Hillside Church”.

Please make plans to come for a worship service of thanksgiving and rejoicing.

Thank you for contributing to the Christmas outreach program of  NC Baptists on Mission.  We were able to prepare 30 backpacks filled with needed items for Appalachian children in areas of need. Continue to pray that these backpacks will reach the children and their families. To read responses from some of the children who received backpacks in previous years, click here .

Notes - from Pastor Rob
  • HillSong Church sent Candy and me away for a pastors-spouses retreat weekend at Caswell Beach. Boy did we ever need it! We spent the time getting to know other Yates Baptist Association pastors and their spouses.  We played games, walked on the beach, ate seafood, meditated on scripture (1 Kings 17), and even got to watch a little bit of college football. We are grateful for the way our church family blesses us and cares for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • I want to report that I delivered 30 backpacks filled with donations from you, the HillSong Church family. I took the backpacks to the distribution point, Olive Chapel Baptist Church in Apex. From there, they will be taken to a site in Appalachia. We pray God will bless the children who receive these gifts.  Read more
